Great price for a stainless steel flashlight.
Nice size for everyday carry (EDC)...stainless should last a long time.
Emitter was centered well and threw a nice smooth beam from spot to spill...no cree rings on mine.
Tint was nice and white.
Definitely a XPE Cree led.
Very dim and useful low mode.
Bright enough for most task and modes are well spaced.
O-rings in all the right places.
Thick glass lens and stippled OP reflector.
Build quality is disappointing...
Head diameter was slightly bigger than the body.
Tailcap was made deeper than the Ultrafire C3 SS to accomodate tailstanding but it actually makes it a bit harder to depress the tailcap button since it's recessed deeper.
Threads were rough and dirty.
Very short threads on the head...took about 1 or 1.5 turns to screw it all the way down.
Tailcap has sufficient thread.
Dimmer than Ultrafire C3 SS (5-mode Q5).
Mushy tailcap...even after tightening the clicky module.
This light is slightly longer than the Ultrafire C3 SS light...
A great light for the price and the addition of a very low, low-mode and smooth beam makes it quite useful. Modes are well spaced out...not a bad buy.
