Nice, but Ultrafire Cree C3 is a better choice – UniqueFire G10 CREE XP-G R5 1-Mode 350-Lumen White LED Flashlight with Strap (1*14500/1*AA) Reviews

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

Pros:
+ Can normal AA battery
+ Very bright
Cons:
-A bit expensive
-On normal AA battery its as bright as Ultrafire Cree C3
-A little bit more yellowish light compare to Ultrafire Cree C3
Other:
I was so impressed by the Cree C3 i bought before, so I thought this 350lumen flashlight would be even brighter.
This was the according to specification the brightest Cree lamp under 15dollar. And the R5 cree should be even better than the Cree P4 emitter.
But in comparison to the ultrafire Cree C3 on normal AA batteries, I could see no difference in brightness. The light is even a bit more yellowish on this one.
Bottomline:
if you plan to use normal AA batteries Ultrafire C3 Cree is by far a better choice. sku.1993. Better value for the money.
This is however still a good bright flashlight, but you really dont have any use of it running on normal AA batteries.
