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 on it.
Batteries do not shake inside flashlight.
Clip quality is decent.
No blemishes or dirt.
Machining was good. Feels like a solid build.
Bright (supposedly 100 lumens from website)
Thorough smooth and solid output.
Decent amount of spill
Internal wiring applies constant current drain.
Runtime is more than 1 hour (continous). I stopped it at 1 hour. I tested it using a fresh 3V CR123A primary battery (costs $2USD - UltraLast Advanced Technology Photo Lithium. US based company but batteries made in China) This RC-C3 hit the 1 hour mark without getting dim. There was a guy that said his gray RC-C3 only ran for 35 minutes. The romisen website says "Discharging time: 3 hours".
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 sweaty hands easily or modestly, this flashlight is not for you.
I bought this because it had had a clip and its single mode. (I don't like to cycle through modes). Has more lumens, more spill, and longer runtime than my other flashlight that costs me 36USD(2XCR123A). Wish I had more flashlights to compare to.
