Small, but disappointing output - go for Cree ver. – MXDL 3W Flashlight Silver Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- Small. - Cheap. - Interesting colors.
Cons:
- Weak, blue output - for a CR123 expected more output, even with a knock-off SMT LED. - Threads are loose and rough, and o-ring is not consistent across 3 samples I have.
Other:
Bottomline:
- If you're thinking about getting this b/c of CR123 and size, they are good reasons - but the output doesn't warrant it; the Cree version of this light is much, much better, pretty bright, and a great candidate for beater use or giving others.
