Very Bright AA, extreamly good build qualty! – SAIK RC-A3 Cree AA Flashlight (Gray) Reviews

posted by GT4_2NV on 11/14/2007 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Very bright AA powered torch. Nice and smooth machining of body. Feels like a quality torch. Nice white light produced by the CREE LED. Textured reflector enables more flood for close up work.
Cons:
Ran this torch and the MTE sku.1995 simultaneously and after 3 mins the body of this torch got extreamly hot where as the MTE stays cool.
Run time is less than my MTE but thats probably because this torch runs whiter.
My MTE seems like a stronger build (thicker construction)
Other:
It would have been nice if torch came with GID tail (though I've already changed mine to a GID). and maybe tail stand ability.
Bottomline:
Brightness rates at about the same as my MTE sku.1995, but the CREE deffinatly puts out a white light.

I have tried the other $5 AA LED torches and all I can say is don't waste your time on them save up and buy either this or the MTE.
