Excellent for the price – Romisen RC-E4 3V~8V Cree 2-Mode Flashlight Black (CR123A/18650) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- Cree emitter - light is white and bright - barrel fits a 18650 battery or 2 CR123's - long runtime on a 18650 - excellent machining and smooth threads
- 2 modes (HI -> off -> LO -> off)
- typical Romisen build quality
- Price is right
Cons:
- No mode memory (but for this price, not a dealbreaker)
- Reverse clicky (might be a plus for some)
- Mine arrived with a cracked lens (replaced with my own parts)
Other:
I have a couple of other Romisen single mode lights that use this same body and Luxeon emitters. This one with the Cree emitter is a little brighter on HI. I wish they offered this with a forward clicky.
Bottomline:
Excellent light for $16 and change. Be sure to get SKU 5776 (Trustfire Protected 18650) and a charger if you don't have them already.
