Powerful flashlight – VenusFire VF-X081 9V Xenon 200-Lumen Flashlight with Clip (2*CR123A) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
It is very cheap, I mean, ridiculously cheap for a XENON based flashlight. It has a nice, warm light, easily bright up the whole room.
Cons:
The XENON bulb itself needs 9V to run, but the lithium batteries give only 7.5 - 7.8 V. I assume that is because there is no protecting circuit for the bulb.
It eats a lot. Prepare yourself 10 maybe 15 minuits is the actual worktime, but its a xenon...what would I expect.
Other:
The whole thing is wellbuilt, I would say heavy. Compare with the other XENON flaslights I owned, this is the best.
Bottomline:
I think it is good for everyday use, but who use a flashlight everyday? :)
