The best mini-flashlight I've seen – UltraFire A30B Cree Q5-WC 220-Lumen LED Flashlight (1*CR123A) Reviews

posted by Shammie on 05/21/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Solid build - durable, watertight when assembled
Extremely bright for its size
Fits in fist completely - a perfect tactical light
Doesn't get hot at all (left it on for an hour)
Battery doesn't rattle
Sharp clicky, turns on when released (you can press it a bit when it's on to temporarily and silently turn off)
Can tailstand
Clicky glows in the dark, very faint though
Has belt clip
Cons:
Belt clip is weak and flimsy, also rattles in its place
Paint peels off a bit when scratched with metal(especially where clip touches the handle)
Can only use CR123 batteries (but who will use AA's for a good light?)
Other:
Cilp can be easily replaced with chain or string or thin rope to make a wrist strap.
Mine came without o-ring for tailcap, easy to place a spare one though
Get a 2-pack of batteries and a charger, and always have a spare batt in your bag
Bottomline:
The best tactical flashlight you can get, and an inexpensive one for sure. I always take it with me - you never know when it might come in handy.
