Great small light – Romisen Cree RC-I3 LED Flashlight (1xAA/1xCR123A/2xAA) Reviews

posted by sparkaboo on 05/30/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Small size - great for emergency light while traveling/camping
Can use CR123 lithium battery for maximum brightness
Can also use AA battery, available *everywhere*, when CR123 happens to run out of power.
Cons:
Case not anodized - scratches easily
Other:
I bought this for 'emergency use' to carry while long distance riding on motorcycle. Lithium battery (CR123) can handle extreme hot/cold better than alkaline, and have long shelf life. If I should need replacement battery while traveling, AA batteries are available everywhere.
I had plenty of light to do minor motorcycle repair ( headlight bulb ) in restaurant parking lot, well after sundown, and to find black leather glove dropped elsewhere in the same dimly lit parking lot.
Bottomline:
I purchased only one of these. After using it, I'm back for more. Great value.
