Defective (Twice) – UltraFire TH-1200 20W 1200-Lumen HID Halogen Flashlight (3*18650) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
Appears to be extremely well built out of aircraft quality aluminum making it fairly durable.
Cons:
Upon arrival and finding the flashlight was wrapped in newspaper and just placed into a regular envelope, I found several minor dings or blemishes on the new flashlight. In addition, after inserting three required 18650 batteries, the last battery extended past the end tube about a 1/4 inch preventing the end cap from screwing on all the way. The end cap switch was also defective - on two different shipments.
Other:
The recommendation from this dealer was to have it repaired locally, which would have cost more than the flashlight by itself.
Bottomline:
Appeared to be very well built, but poor design with the battery canister and end cap switch.
