really nice – Torch Light C78 Flood-to-Throw Zooming Cree Q3-WC 130-Lumen LED Flashlight (1*AA) Reviews

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

Pros:
-It's bright at an usable level.
-Flood-to-throw
-nice finish
-small enough for "edc"
-runs on 1AA-Cell, Alkaline or NiMH
-on highest zoom you can see an emitter pattern on the wall
Cons:
-not perfectly anodized/coloured (slightly, doesn't matter any)
-Clicky is not that good and is easy switched on in your pocket.
-gets a little warm after a while, but not dramatically
Other:
OK: now make it with Q5 or R2, with a clicky, that doesn't stand out, perhaps as a 2xAA-Version and... that's it. But it's really good, as it is. The holes at the head are just a matter of design, they don't let any air flow.
Bottomline:
One of the best here. I really like it and it's usable like just very few.
