- very bright, I think it really has Q5 led
- cheap
- 5 modes
- low is good for reading book at night - it won't blind you
- very easy to disassemble
- threads are good
- almost 2h at HIGH until it starts to be quite dim
- you can see the beam at night :D
- flickering is a bit visible on low mode
- GITD button is glowing for only 10mins
- not constant-current driver:
at fresh 18650 (4,15V) is gives 750mA through emitter
at 3,95V - only 560mA
- won't tail-stand (long button)
- gets a bit hot after 30mins
It's my first flashlight from DX and I'm very satisfied! But, I'm going to replace the driver with sku.15880 because the original one is very dim at <3,5V (see cons)
Very good for this price!
