Powerful one mode flashlight – Romisen RC-E4 3V~8V Cree 2-Mode Flashlight Black (CR123A/18650) Reviews

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

Pros:
+ Powerful with RCR123 3.6v batteries
+ No problem taking protected 18650 batteries (sku 5776). They fit perfectly
+ Double quality o-ring at the tail thread
+ Sturdy construction
+ Very compact
+ Low price
+ Good hand grip, well balanced
+ Tight spot, though a bit weak spill
Cons:
- Lens not glued and no o-ring on it
- CR123 batteries rattle a little (not with 18650)
- Reverse tail cap clicky switch (I prefer forward)
- Only one mode (DX should change this info)
- Very thin o-ring at the head
- Notches don´t avoid rolling
Other:
The best performance I have tested is working with 2xRCR123 3.6v. The led is not as efficient as similar RC-K4 (sku 5379) but is powerful enough. Not too big not too small, not too heavy and not too light weight. It is just a "medium" flashlight in everything.
Bottomline:
For this price this is a good torch. Not a 2-mode as advertised but still useful as multi purpose help.
