Cheap and bright! – MXDL XT7224 3W 50-Lumen LED Flashlight with Clip (Color Assorted/2*AAA) Reviews

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

Pros:
-The price is incredibly low -Nice small and compact design -Very nice bright light -The body is full-metal (I didn't expect that!)
Cons:
-DX should sort the colors and let us pick -The electronic LED driver inside seems to be low quality (see Other Thoughts)
Other:
I ordered two of these flashlights, they are both working, but one of them started to act weird. When I turn it on, it blinks fast for a while (like a stroboscope), and after few seconds it starts to work normally. Powerful LEDs do it when they get too high voltage, but I use recommended batteries, so I don't know why does it do this. (That's also the reason why it got only 4 stars for build quality)
Bottomline:
Just buy one or two, they are just worth the price! And by the way, they look like a good laser host. I am definitely going to make a laser from one of those I got.
