BEST on today AA XP-G R5 torch – TrustFire R5-A3 Cree XP-E-R5 3-Mode 230-Lumen Memory LED Flashlight (1*AA/1*14500) Reviews

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

Pros:
Nicely made! reflector o-ring is glowing greenly in the dark after use. so does clicky button but it needs to be "recharged" by another torch. not so bright as supposed. nice idea with half-clicking mode changing but too sensitive - after off torch will run in next state. fits all my batteries and rechargebles.
Cons:
here is no cons except short hi-brightness life. it lasts about 3-5 minutes.
Other:
seems to be it needs a special improved driver with no annoying sounds and more efficency.
Bottomline:
no way - must buy for those who needs cheap AA torch with latest generation LED.
