Pros:
Like all Ultrafire flashlights, this one is very good quality. The construction is very solid and the grip textures on the body make it very nice and comfortable to hold in your hand. It works well with CR123A, RCR123A (16340) or 18650, so this gives you a wide range of options when it comes to batteries. Recommend using TrustFire batteries for good performance. The light is very bright and goes pretty far.
Cons:
It has only one mode, the high output one, so it will drain the battery very quick.
Other:
It also seems on par with my 5-mode Ultrafire WF-501B flashlight, so it may not put out 320 lumens as advertised.
Bottomline:
If you need a decent power light with a good brightness, go for it.
