Great light for little money – MX Power ML-310 Cree WC-Q5 3-Mode 180-Lumen LED Flashlight (1*AA/1*CR123A) Reviews

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

Pros:
- very bright light (spot) - wide voltage range (0.6~4.2V) - acceppts a variety of batteries: with extension: 14500/AA without extension: 16340/CR123a/RCR123 - recessed tailcap knob/clickie - vertical stand (due to recessed clickie) - tough!
Cons:
- Threads are a little bit dry - missing o-ring on the extension tube Not much at all, but as mentioned before, you might want to lube the threads a little bit. I did not experience any of the problems some users mentioned here regarding the threads since I just added a drop of oil to each thread before use.
Other:
You also might want to compare this torch with the Romisen RC-A4 (sku 26791 and 26793) and or SacredFire NF-555 (sku 30682). I think this light is supperior, because it has the extension ring to allow you to use many different batteries including easy to get anywhere AAs. Also, this one has a stronger LED (WC-Q5) as compared to the other two which feature only a WC-Q5
Bottomline:
If you need a bright, cool and tough EDC light just buy it. Also fits nice to your gun...
