Best cheap flashlight I bought to date – SIPIK SK68 Cree Q3-WC 120-Lumen Convex Lens LED Flashlight - Grey (1*AA/1*14500) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- Compact build
- Uses a ubiquitous AA cell
- VERY solidly built
- Good heat sinking
- Convenient zooming
Cons:
- There is no thermal paste between the LED MCPCB and the metal heat sink. I ended up adding thermal paste myself as I really don't want this beautiful baby to deteriorate due to overheating. In order to put in the thermal paste, however, I had to unsolder and re-solder the board, which I don't like doing.
- Not water resistant
Other:
Bottomline:
Overall, this is the best low cost flashlight I ever bought. It feels like something much more expensive than what you pay for it here.
