pretty good light – MXDL 5W LED Flashlight Silver (3xAAA) Reviews

posted by ponyboy on 04/27/2008 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
This is a pretty good light. It is bright with a slight blue tint. It is slightly brighter and larger than the 9 led flashlight. It has more of a hotspot in the center of the beam than the 9 led model.
Cons:
Strange shape. It doesn't feel like a flashlight in your hand. It's quite large for the amount of light it gives out. I would really prefer to have another Romisen RC-C3 or CREE P4 than this. They give out tons more light in a much smaller package.
Other:
I like the knurling over the entire body. It's easy to hold onto.
Bottomline:
As said before, save your money if you want a truly bright light and go for the ROMISEN RC-C3 (A great light!!) Or the TINY CREE P4 (Another GREAT light). These do cost about 2-3 times more, but I think they're worth it. If you truly need a AAA flashlight this is not a bad choice, but I'd opt for the 9 led model. It is half the price and nearly as bright with a more useable beam (more flood.) I own all of the lights I've commented on.
