Great performer in a small package – UltraFire Cree XR-E Q5 180lm 3-Mode White Zooming Flashlight - Grey (1 x 14500 / AA) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
-Small, palm sized, pretty light -Decently bright, in fact it was brighter than I expected -Takes AAs commonly found -Aluminium construction -This is the exact same one as the 'Sipik' but this sells for USD6.30 the Sipik sells at USD9 and is only 120lm
Cons:
-Screw threads came a little dirty, had to clean them up a little no big deal -Chinese drivers and boards leave me wary of the flashlight's longevity - will see how long this lasts
Other:
Small enough to carry in a purse - get this as a gift for a girl, or anyone in fact!
Bottomline:
The brightness exceeded my expectations on first impression but 'Made in China'(assuming it is) tends to not last so long but I will monitor the situation and might update
