Not bad at all... – SuperFire Flashlight 9V BLACK Reviews

Pros:
Had if for a day, thought it was a bit dim and yellow with 2xCR123 3.0v batteries, then I realized it's a 9v lamp so I bet its a lot better with 2xRCR123 3.6v batteries. I dropped in a Cree LED Module (sku#6090)for fun and it's awesome bright!! On 2xCR123 3.0v batteries it's about 150+ lm (extimated). Its a good light, nicely built, and for only about $10 it competes with all those other tactical lights costing 5x as much.
Cons:
Seems light in the hand, but that is my personal opinion. I like a light to feel a bit more solid in weight, but again this is just me being picky.
Other:
Easily taked the 6P style dorp-in mods found on DX. If you want a long running, super bright light, drop in a nice CREE module and it rocks! I still cant believe who well this thing performs next to my SF, which cost a LOT more. Oh yea, and good job to DX for awesome shipping and customer service.
Bottomline:
Good bright light with 2xRCR123 3.6v batteries. Drop in an LED module for long runtime with bright light.

I will surely buy another one to mod with an LED.
