Pros:
What a great little light , I was not expecting it to be so good , every now and again you come across a great buy , this is one of those .
Cons:
The pill was lose in the body , gave me an opportunity to cut some slots in it to make it easy to tighten and remove ..
Other:
120Lumen on a Alkaline AA Coles 2A 1.52v
45Lumen on aEveready Blue [ dry ] 0.85A 1.5v
75Lumen Camelion Dry 1.4A 1.54v
45Lumen Ultracharge dry 1.06A 1.54v
105L Varta High Energy 1.86A 1.53v
120L Duracell Alkaline 1.93A 1.5v
250Lumen 14500 sags to 200 and holds ,,, 1.07A 4.09v
Its being pushed hard on a 14500 , mine starts over 250Lumen but sags to just a little over 200 and then holds ..
Double O rings at the body join , O ring for the lens .. Square cut threads , the clip is Cheesy , Tailcap and O rings are glow in the dark .
Clicky on mine is very positive , not spongy at all .
Bottomline:
Pulls a lot of current , at least mine does , end result is a lot of light . Run it on Alkaline's or Lithiums and be happy , I dont know if the little emitter will stand up to 14500 use , but a 3 mode [ Hi-Med-Lo ] driver would make this one of the best EDC lights on the market .
ATM = Love it , for under $10USD Shipped , what a great buy ... Please DX , make this light Hi-med-lo ........ [ NO STROBE ]
