What a torch! – UltraFire A1 Cree Q5-WC 5-Mode 230-Lumen LED Flashlight - Grey (1*CR123A) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
great little light! The colour of the finishing was much better than what it looks like on the site. The finish itself is smooth without any defects whatsoever. The colour of the head and body match perfectly as well.
Output: On a 3.6v RCR123, it is BRIGHT!! Very smooth beam, very cool white tint. Good spill and very bright hotspot.
Output is in 5 modes, Hi-Med-Lo-Fast Strobe-SOS.
Clicky is a reverse clicky and changing modes is a breeze.
Cons:
The clip could be better designed like the Romisen RC-C3 clip which is easier to clip to pockets.
Threads were dry but not an issue, just lubed them up and good to go.
Clicky does not reset or have a memory mode, if you turn off the light, it will turn on in the next mode. i.e. if you turn off in high, it will turn on in medium the next time.
Other:
No big issue with the cons, its a great buy for the price
Bottomline:
If you want a budget 1xRCR123 multi mode light, this is it!
