A Nice Tall Light – UltraFire Cree C3 Flashlight with 2xAA Extension Tube Bundle Reviews

posted by ColdSteel on 06/23/2007 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Common battery size, light weight and bright. Clickie button on rear. Nice fit and finish.
Cons:
This light is almost too long; however, it does have the ability to take a 3.6 volt 14500 battery in conjunction with a AA. Two 14500s, however, can fry the flashlight, so constant care must be exercised. Only one mode.
Other:
The light would fit in the side suit pocket and could be useful in a number of ways. A person could slap a couple of rechargable AA batteries in and be good to go, or, with rechargable AA and a 14500 batteries, the light could be even brighter.
Bottomline:
This light sure beats the Mini-MagLite to Kingdom Come. With two AA batteries, it's a solid performer. With rechargable batteries, though, I'd prefer a light that takes 123A batteries.
