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

Light can use AA if you're in a pinch or don't have 14500 batteries lying around. It also is fairly bright, has multiple modes and glow in the dark "O" rings.
Pathetic if AA batteries are used. The glow in the dark switch isn't bright enough to be practical.
The light doesn't start on a terribly bright mode, but it's well made and useful. I suppose someone will always have a AA battery lying around.
Overall, you're better off with a better light. This is not a solid choice for a pocket light. If you've got a box of AA batteries lying around, fine; otherwise, get a brighter light. Better yet, use the higher volt 14500 battery and it should be fine.
