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

Pros:
- Very strong body.
- Attractive looking torch.
- High quality machining.
- Brightest handheld torch my family and I have ever seen.
- Can use common 1.2V/1.5V AA battery
- Can use powerful 14500 lithium battery which really makes this torch shine!
- Glow in the dark switch (at back)
- Glow in the dark O-ring at the front looks very cool and helps you keep track of it in the dark.
- Full stainless steel body very resistant to corrosion or rust.
- Small, slim, size with nice grip.
- Nice weight that doesn't feel like something cheap from China.
- Such a low price for something this good.
- Out performs torches that cost $100+ in my country.
- The black strap is surprisingly quite handy.
- Nice even spread of light.
- Selectable power settings.
- Battery fit snug didn't move about inside and wasn't difficult to close.
- Remembers last setting.
Cons:
- Packaging was minimal just a small plain cardboard box.
- SOS function and strobe are not very useful.
- You have to cycle through all the modes to get back to the one you want.
Other:
This torch is so good and value for money that the first one I ordered was snatched away by a family member so I have already ordered 2 more, I no doubt will probably order even more in the future.
If you buy this torch be 100% sure to buy the 14500 lithium battery and charger at the same time, it's just not the same with only a AA battery.
Bottomline:
You will not be disappointed by this torch, it will amaze you that China can make such an amazing product at this price. Don't forget to pick up your 14500 battery on the way out =D.
