I love the quick zoom – Torch Light C78 Flood-to-Throw Zooming Cree Q3-WC 130-Lumen LED Flashlight (1*AA) Reviews

Pros:
5X brighter than 9 LED flashlight in flood mode. Spot mode is useful up to 70 ft and perhaps farther depending on how good your eye sight is. At that distance the spot is about 4 ft in diameter. I like the size and the AA battery. Zooming head is quick. I can maneuver it with one hand in a flash unlike twist-type zooming heads.
Cons:
I was thinking initially that the switch should've been flushed with the tail and a little wider. There's no easy way of replacing the LED. A plastic ring is pressed against the tube to keep the module in place. The same deal with the tail switch.
Other:
I'm still unsure whether the lens is plastic or glass. It feels like glass and does not scratch easily like plastic. I'll have to investigate further.
Bottomline:
Better looking than the X2000 lights and faster zooming than Romisen's.
