Bright Light – UniqueFire AA-S1 3W OSRAM 160-Lumen LED Flashlight (1*AA/1*14500) Reviews

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

Pros:
Straightforward form factor (tube). Good knurling that isn't too sharp but still improves grip. I've only used with Eneloop AA and it puts out a very strong light with excellent spill.
Cons:
Some may say the reverse clicky. I do prefer a forward clicky but really don't have a problem with reverse. Also, light is noticeably green/yellow. Other reviews have touched on this but it was more pronounced than I thought it would be. That said, I just bought the thing so I'm probably a bit more on the lookout for this sort of thing. I'll probably find it less noticeable in actual use over time (and when not directly comparing to other flashlights over and over again).
Other:
GITD tail switch and O-rings. Cool to turn the light on and off to watch the front O-ring glow. Tail switch is deep enough so flashlight can tail stand for candle mode. The light beam is very broad so less throw but still has a strong hotspot. Great light for indoors. Smooth transition from hotspot to spill.
Bottomline:
Great light for a great price especially if you're looking for good spill.
