"2xAA thrower"! – UltraFire WF-606A Cree Q5-WC 230-Lumen LED Flashlight with Extension Tube (1*CR2/2*AA) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Very bright for a 2AA light, perfectly white beam.
A M@glite barely glows compared to this one.
Much brighter than RC-P3.
Good throw and powerfull spill.
Good machining, feels solid.
Large capacity ni-mh fits easily.
Nice finish, silky black.
Threads are very good and clean, only rear ones lubed.
Rear clicky (reverse operating) feels distinct.
Glass lens.
Driver and led in one unit, easily removed.
"Solder blob" for extra protection from "battery wear"
Useful lanyard, made for "normal hands" ;-)
In "CR2 mode" it's about the size of a Tippex bottle.
Cons:
Led not perfectly centered on mine.
Too bright for close up use.
Other:
If you want a cheap, bright light with AA batteries, this is probably one of the best!
I have 7 "DX lights" and this is the brightest one running on AA batteries.
Bottomline:
Glad I bought it!
