Good torch, but it rattles a little... – SuperFire Flashlight 9V BLACK Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Good bright halogen bulb, especially when using rechargable 3.6v batteries. Quite solid case. Good reflector, with solid umbra - no ringing.
Cons:
Works better with protected CR123s, since they're a bit longer. The extra length seems to hold the batteries in place better, stopping them from losing contact with the torch head. Rattles with non-protected batteries and can sometimes flicker when torch is shaken. This is bad.
Other:
Don't know if my torch was completely standard, as it came WITH some rechargable, non-protected batteries. There was also a chip out of the paintwork on the base. Could QA team have left them in by mistake. Not complaining, since always good to have a spare set of batts!
Bottomline:
Not the cheapest torch, and I have to say that I love LEDs better than halogen, but this is definitely a great torch. The rattle is off-putting, and I'm mod it a little bit to remove this. I'm happy with it, and I'd recommend it to anyone else.
