Pros:
A very nice AA light , well built , good finish , feels good in the hand . I was initially pleased with the light , though I was expecting better performance from the XP-G R5
Cons:
Output VS current = rather poor output for a XP-G R5 .
WARNING , 14500 may kill the driver , I tried a 14500 and the driver is now damaged , AA's will no longer power up the light , needs a driver swap now .
Other:
Nimh AA performance =
High / 1.87A / 113Lumen
Med / 1.07A / 61Lumen
Low/ 0.47A / 17Lumen
Bottomline:
Its a nice AA light , good build quality , but output is nothing special on AA batteries , and if you go 14500 you may kill the driver , as I have .
