Nice, Simple Backup Light – Romisen Cree RC-I3 LED Flashlight (1xAA/1xCR123A/2xAA) Reviews

This is a great overall light, bright enough for most tasks, simple to use, and batteries lasts a long time. Like all Romisen lights, the build quality is better than most of the budget lights and overall usability and durability is great. Granted, it may not be the brightest light but the run time on a set of AA's is very impressive for such a cheap light.
Threads could be cleaner/smoother. Clicky feels a bit cheap.
Once again, for a good all around low budget light, it's hard to beat a Romisen. This light is no exception. Sure it's fun to have a super bright torch that burns holes in the walls and eats through batteries in an under an hour. But if you're look for a nice light to have around as a backup, for emergency purposes, or even for a good hike or bike light, this one does the job just fine...especially due to runtime.
Buy this light if you need a cheap light you can toss around and if runtime and usability are more important for your needs than a super torch. If you can afford a little more $$ and don't mind multiple modes, get a 5-mode Ultrafire C3.
