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

posted by compasillo on 08/03/2008 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
+ Great versatility to be powered up (it really works with 1xAA 2xAA and 1xCR123A)
+ Pocket size with 1xCR123A (powerful) or 1xAA (a little dim with this)
+ Lubed quality threads
+ Well balanced
+ Nice spot, not too tight not too wide
+ Clip to attach it to a pocket and avoid rolling
+ Tail clicky switch (reverse)
Cons:
- Not aluminium anodized (scratches can be easily done)
- O-rings very thin (not expected to last)
- Not o-ring at the lens
- Batteries rattle a little if you shake the torch
Other:
Don´t remove the clip if you plan to mount it again later. It's very hard to do it and that's the way I got a lot of scratches and discovered the low quality aluminium it is made of.
Bottomline:
For the price this is one of the best torches you can get at DX. I got also the black model and it's the same quality/features.
