Pros:
This is an EXTREMELY BRIGHT light. I couldn't believe it when I first switched it on. The light is very bright, but it is not designed for throw. The reflector is not very deep and the beam is a bit floody( which makes it even more useful for daily use )
The threads were lubed and very smooth. The best I ever had in a chinese light.
The tailcap glows in the dark, hence making it easier to locate the light.
Cons:
The front lens is slightly loose, and cannot be fixed without sanding away some of the rough edges. As a result, the light is not waterproof from the front
Other:
Bottomline:
This is by far the best flashlight under$16 at DX. Don't hesitate to get it
