Good wee torch – Aurora SH-033 Cree XPE-WD-Q5 5-Mode 220-Lumen Memory LED Flashlight (1*CR2) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
Very elegant, well made design with a nice brushed finish.
Would easily pass as a high end product.
Can tailstand.
GITD O rings and button cap.
Body warms up quickly.
LED is an XP-E.
Lens feels like glass.
Cons:
Only about 120 lumens (from comparison to my Fenix PD31).
the battery tube is smaller at the head end so if you try to put batteries in it will strip the plastic coating off.
Threads are a bit dirty.
Other:
Two holes drilled for the lanyard but it goes through one and then back over the top, if you put it through one hole and back through the other it tailstands more securely.
It's very small (slightly bigger than an 18650 battery) I find it almost too small.
Bottomline:
For my first DX torch it's not bad, I will use it to reduce wear and damage to my more expensive torches.
