Pros:
pros looks goodvery very bright
Cons:
okay rechargable a a wont fit into it well they will but no fun trying to get them out , and the trustfire 14500 only just go in
Other:
its a great little torch has a great beam smooth reflector so has a hot spot but very good spill not as bright as you would expect as say a 18650 r5 but it has a much nicer beam than say the skyray r5
Bottomline:
the strobe on this is almost a weapon its crazy fast you may think its a bonus .its good only having the three modes the memory works its a bit slow about 4 seconds clip is good finish is great this is the first torch that i will not be bothering taking apart so all in all its not perfect but omg its bright for sich a small torch i have made my own 14500 r5 bye filling down a p6 type drop in r 5 but this is much better
