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

Pros:
Decent output with an alkaline aa battery that's comparable to the RC-G2. Nice finish with orings in place. The oring around the lens and the switch are glow in the dark. 5 modes is a plus for me. Good quality clip. Switches modes well. Good for those that just want to use a common aa battery. Glass lens, aluminum reflector.
Cons:
I really don't like the switch at all. It switches modes just fine but it's a little too recessed. You have to jam your thumbnail into it to turn it on and off. Same switch as on the akoray k-109. The feel of the switch on the ultrafire uf-010 feels so much better. Also, I'm hesitant to try a 14500 in it for fear of burning it up.
Other:
My flashlight collection is beginning to spiral out of control.
Bottomline:
Not a bad light but I would of rated it higher if there weren't reports of failures when using a 14500 in it.
