Well built, nice finish – Eastward YJ J09 Cree XP-G R5 3-Mode 240-Lumen LED Flashlight with Clip (1*AA) Reviews

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

Pros:
+ Very well finished, adjustment of the different pieces seems to be very good + Powerful and even beam + Compact size, useful clip
Cons:
- Tailcap switch is not very easy to reach with the thumb, it's a bit far in the tube - When off, the switch rattles a bit - Compared to AAA model like the Akoray K106 it's a bit large and long to carry in my inner suit pocket, but it's still low profile enough
Other:
Beam is quite pleasant, floody and even, not too blueish.
Bottomline:
Apart for the switch, the general finish of this flashlight is quite impressive for this price. Sure it's still more expensive than a lot of other models on DX, but it's still a very interesting offer which can compare to well-known and pricier brands. Mine really uses a XP-G emitter, as advertised on the page.
