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

Pros:
--Solid Build, nice use of battery configurations: the aaa mode being the best, Fully O-ringed, Stylish, Smooth paint Job must be, Ha II coating which reduces scratches.
Cons:
Strobe mode is not Fast as described it's very slow. Led does not fully collimate to throw mode.
An R2 led would much better be suited for this light. Low mode is very similar to High mode. The lanyard is flimsy nylon rope that breaks away in a few weeks of use. The aaa battery configuration is by far the best. 18650 barely fits in there and 2- 123a batteries is a bit much for a Q5 light. A glass optic lens would be really nice in this light.
Other:
For what you pay this is a very solid well built light.
Bottomline:
This is an actual light from DX that I didn't have to clean and adjust to get it to work properly. Romisen makes a quality flashlight, with a few tweaks this light could be really great.
