Very bright light, amaze friends with tiny light – 3W Cree P4 CR123A Flashlight Reviews

Pros:
Since its a CREE you will get good runtime from the light. Bright as a 4D flashlight maybe brighter. White tight beam leaves you amazed at its small built. Built well, reflector was a bit cracked at end yet no effect on light. Accepts 3.7 volt. Lights up a room in candle mode better if had a dim mode like 16-20 lumens.
Cons:
Battery rattles inside, Single mode only, could use a dim mode for low light conditions. Could add a clip for pantpocket, but I guess thats my hobby modifying. Added a girl's small rubberband for better battery stabilty and contact and a mark-alot metal clip with gorilla glue. Does accept 3.7 volt yet feels warm after a couple of minutes.
Other:
Bottomline:
Can't beat the price for a great light. Tiny and great for a girlfriend or wife. Great for EDC and economical with RCR123A.
