Akoray K-106 Excellent Small Light – Akoray K-106 Cree Q5-WC 5-Mode 230-Lumen Memory LED Flashlight (1*AA/1*14500) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
* Uses AA battery (Currently only using Duracell Procell AA) * Extremely bright LED. It is brighter than both a Maglight 6 D-cell (Old Skool flashlight) and a Coast LED Lenser 3-AAA. * Multi-Mode is handy you can throttle down to lower power to conserve battery. Strobe is interesting. Switching between modes is easy and it remembers the last mode used. * Fit-and-finish is excellent. * Nice coating and color. * Size is good both in the pocket and in the hand.
Cons:
* Switched on once but no light, clicked switch again and worked fine. Could be because the switch is inset and could be clicked partially? * Clip could be a little weak, but it works fine for securing in a pocket.
Other:
Bottomline:
If you want a small bright LED for an good price the Akoray K-106 is an excellent choice. It would be impossible to find anything that could touch it for price and performance at a retail store in the US.
