It's a buy! – TrustFire S-A2 Cree XPC-WC-Q5 3-Mode 230-Lumen LED Flashlight (1*AA/1*14500) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Compact easily pocketable LED torch with 3 light settings (full power, low power, flash). Water seal looked ok. Single AA battery. Price.
Cons:
Obviously straight out of the factory, with a coating of silicone oil that had to be wiped off. Plastic bag wrapped, no real packaging. Not as heavy (sturdy) and finely manufactured (a few minor burrs) as my Fenix (also a single AA unit).
Other:
Using this as a bike front light and the flash setting is essential for this application (ideally used in build up areas with street lights).
Bottomline:
This S-A2 unit is all about value compared to a Fenix that's 6x the price. This one works with no excessive dress up and no more can be asked. Value buy!
