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

    Pros:
    The main advantage of this button is that it is not at a high price, you are buying a great thing! Irreplaceable and cool button that can be turned on and off as the low and high up to one and a half thousand volts! But I do not recommend! It is better to u...
    Cons:
    Cons of these buttons I have not found a simple and reliable design.

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    The switches are neatly made and the quality is good despite the cheap price. It is very useful in flashlight modification, parts replacement & repair - which I will be doing soon.

    Well worth the money

    posted by Sherlock3 on 03/06/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very cheap price reverse clicky switches for DIY torches or replacement switch. Solid clicking action. Springs are not soldered on so they are easy to replace if you need to use a shorter spring - you could of course just modify the one it comes with
    Cons:
    spring is too long for my purposes. These are reverse clickies - My personal preference is for forward clicky switches because...

    Pros:
    Great replacement for my Ultrafire WF-502B that had a defective clicky switch It has three modes: high, low and strobe. At the price I expected a simple on-off.

    Does the job

    posted by yrnkrn on 02/22/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    * Cheap * Built well * The battery spring is very long but easily cut to correct length. Don't forget to bend the edge inwards after cutting so it won't scratch the battery bottom. * Direct replacement for a Romisen RC-N3. Not identical but fits OK. I'm sti...
    Cons:
    You probably don't need five of them... I needed only one. Four are now in storage maybe for a very long time.

    Useable switches

    posted by Lollerkopter on 06/10/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap 16mm reverse clicky switches. Five piece for only 1,96? It's a joke. A likeable joke :) Fits many DX flashlights, and fits any handmade flashlights.
    Cons:
    The spring is too long, small modification is required in some situation. The plastic materials quality is not the best.
