Worth five times the price – RC-C3 Cree LED Flashlight Gray (1.3V~4V CR123A) Reviews

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

Pros:
Compact, O rings have good placement, The wire type clip can be removed without altering anything. Great light, takes CR123A lithium rechargeables and primary cells both without a hiccup. I've found that with some of these flashlights even a slightly longer battery will interfere with the light staying in one piece, but there are extra threads in this well-thought-out design and I have full confidence in it.
Cons:
Perhaps the only thing would be the glass lens, it could be a little thicker and more robust, it hasn't broken - but it's pretty thin.
Other:
This is what we should be buying for emergency and general flashlight use, hands down the best tiny flashlight at the price - I'm buying six more.
Bottomline:
I ordered several flashlights using the Cree C3 emitter, I wish I had just ordered this one, even thought the others are pretty good too.
