    Nice compact flashlight

    posted by mythoslegend on 08/21/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great for carry because of small size and clip. Twist switch prevents no accidential on. Twist action is easy enough to turn on the flashlight with one hand. O-rings make it water-tight. Threading is smooth. They were nice enough to put a little grease/lube...
    Cons:
    It gets a little warm at 5 minutes. It will get considerably warm but never hot enough where you can't hold it. If you get swea...

    Decent

    posted by hyperfish on 04/09/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    A no brainer to operate. Typical (IE: Excellent!) Romisen build quality. Decent output, won't blow you back on your heels. However, once you compare it to others in it's class & price range, you'll find yourself reaching for it when you need a useful li...
    Cons:
    Pricey compared to something like the Ultrafire C3 @ <$11.

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

    Pros:
    good price on a well driven cree p4. very bright for a single 123 battery, but i'm used to buying lights that run on aa/aaa batteries, so this one should be brighter. it has good throw with a larger hotspot than some of the other small lights i own from DX....

    Pros:

    Cons:
    -Gets warm fast on RCR123 cell. -Low mode would have been really nice. -Anodize coating seems a little fragile. There is an HA...

    I love this little light

    posted by jayinhk on 06/18/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Small, lightweight, very bright for its size, cheap, sits low in the pocket, has a clip, can handle rechargeable CR123A (3.7V) without any problems. Clip is easily removable too.
    Cons:
    Nicks in the finish. LED is not user removable (as far as I know) so I can't get to the inside of the glass to clean it. Took a...

    Enormous amounts of white bright light

    posted by Gcharger on 03/01/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Just unbelievable that such a little pocket flashlight can bring you so much light. Uses just one CR 123A battery, the rechargables from Ultrafire are an option. Won't go on accidentally, it has a "turn on" switch.
    Cons:
    None, it's just great.
