Pros:
Its quite bright for this price you will be amazed.
For the price ill rate it a 4.
There are better flahslights which is far more better but then they als cost 5 times more.
Cons:
*The cree is not perfectly aligned.
*Its a metalpin instead of spring so it will scratch your batteries. Rechargables are little bit higher so there you will notice deep circles in your battery whereas alkalines will be less scratched.
*clip doesnt feel that durable , if you bend it to much it will probably be bent.
*battery will rattle some.
Other:
I would like to see a low mode at about 10-15 lumen to preserve the batterylife as you dont need more than that normally. If you need more light you have the high mode.
Bottomline:
I also have fenix ld10 R4 and i use 9 lumens when walking home and if i like to see further i switch to high or turbo. So that means i can use it for 34 hours if i only use it with 9 lumens.
Hugsby maybe the runtime is 2 hours(didnt try though) . So it will cost you more in buying new cells or recharging them frequently.
