Great EDC Light...one of the BEST! – Ultrafire C3 Stainless Steel Cree Q5-WC 5-Mode 190-Lumen Memory LED Flashlight (1*AA/1*14500) Reviews

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

Pros:
Similar to SKU 11133 but with modes and MEMORY...finally, an Ultrafire with MEMORY!!!
Great build...everything fits tight, o-rings in all the right places, smooth threads.
They made this one with a flat clicky so it tailstands!
Glow in the Dark O-rings and tailcap.
Very brighter..brighter than 1 mode SS C3.
Nice white tint CREE Q5
Good heft..solid light, will last for years.
Nice brass pill and aluminum OP reflector...all one piece.
Thick glass lens.
Super, Super low mode!!!...finally
Cons:
Ringy, ugly beam...not sure why...the original single mode SS C3 was much smoother.
Dry threads...no big deal.
Other:
Great EDC light...one of the best made besides the Akoray...buy either one and you'll be happy. Will take substantial abuse and keep running fine.
Bottomline:
Ultrafire seems to be listening and they made this new version of the SS C3 much nicer than before. The circuitry is something you may or may not appreciate since some like a simpler one mode better. I personally appreciate a multimode light with memory function so this is a winner for me. Fit and finish is nicer than before, pill is better, clicky is better, and they finally put in a very useable low low mode. Sure there's strobe and sos modes (as usual) but they might come in handy and they're not nearly as annoying since you have memory. Get some...they're nice and they're much cheaper than the original P4 version!!!
