BRIGHT!!! CHEAP!!! – UniqueFire AA-S1 3W OSRAM 160-Lumen LED Flashlight (1*AA/1*14500) Reviews

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

Pros:
Simple, well made, all parts fit together nicely. Threads are smooth as silk once you clean it up and reapply some lubricant. Pop in an energize alkaline, click and wow! It is darn bright for its size. Change that to a 14500 and it is a blazingly bright light!!! I kid you not, it looks easily 150 - 180 lumens if not more!! Tint is just slightly yellowish green on AAs but is very nice when running on 14500. The clip enables this light to be deep carried in your pocket without the tailcap sticking out, if you dont want to attract any attention at all, change it to a black tailcap. Did i mention this light is BRIGHT?? Oh, it can tailstand too. No ideas about runtime as yet.
Cons:
None actually, for its price point, it does 10x better than many other single mode lights.
Other:
These are great as gifts, i have given out three so far and the common comment is DAMN! THAT IS BRIGHT!
Bottomline:
Get these for simple, one mode, no brainer lights to put in toolboxes, as emergency lights etc.
