Excellent EDC Torch! – TrustFire S-A2 Cree XPC-WC-Q5 3-Mode 230-Lumen LED Flashlight (1*AA/1*14500) Reviews

Pros:
STUNNING brightness! The Beam is instantly blinding. The brightest Flashlight I've seen running on a single AA Battery. VERY light and small, but not too small to handle. Excellent build quality. It seems waterproof when tightened well (is it ??) The three modes are perfectly trimmed when you're used to something similar. No use for using rechargeable batteries while equipped with 1AA If you have a fitting holster its the perfect EDC torch! I used to wear WolfExes Sniper (I+II DX6) Q5LED Torch for EDC but now switched to this one.
Cons:
Beam is fixfocused pretty tight, it's more of a thrower (see beamshots). Tailswitch is pretty loud. Tailswitch triggers when released, not when pushed. Light in focused area has minimalistic shadows (dont bother!) The memory of operation mode could be shorter (it's 4 or 5 seconds)
Other:
It should be shipped with a holster included. Maybe it should have a beltclip. Give it some silicone-squeeze to seal the screwings.
Bottomline:
BUY IT ! It's amazing. YOU NEED THIS ! :-) I think altogether it's the best torch I own.
