Incredibly bright – TrustFire F20 Cree Q5-WC 5-Mode 230-Lumen Memory LED Flashlight (1*AA/1*14500) Reviews

Pros:
* Cool titanium look is much better than the picture.
* Looks very sturdy with good machining.
* Very bright with 3.7v lithium battery. I have also tested with genuine eneloop battery, comparably bright on HIGH and MEDIUM mode, however LOW mode is not so practical.
* True SOS mode (S-0-S (pause) S-O-S ...)
Cons:
* Glow-in-dark clickie is easy to see but does not go well with the overall look. I would prefer black or gray switch. Who needs the switch to glow?
* Clip looks weak.
Other:
This small light is very handy. I was carrying 10400 (AAA) flashlight in my coat pocket before, this took its place.
Price cannot be beaten.
Works will alcalines, NiMhs, NiCd (tested for a short period of time) and Li-ions.
Just buy one and put it in glove compartment with an alcaline battery for emergencies. Thats what I'm gonna do with my second order.
Bottomline:
If you are looking for AA sized flashlight, buy this one.
