BATTERIES NOT INCLUDED First off the flashlight is cheap and works well but takes a 18650 battery which isn't super specialty but it's hard enough to get that a battery should be included. Also the batteries will run you about $9 for a 4-pack on to of the $8 so if you only want 1 flashlight consider getting a more expensive one with the battery included. The light is very bright and shoots a very intense narrow beam. The light is all metal. The 5 modes cycle through with a button push which isn't a big deal but not my favorite feature.I tested the light against 2 other lights(Pictures included) I had to see how they stacked upCree Flashlight: 6472 Lux at 30", 1800 Lux at 50"160 LED light: 1726 Lux at 30", 265 Lux at 50"1 LED keychain: 22 Lux at 30", 4 Lux at 50" 4Solid Bright Cheap Flashlight -- Pay attention to Con # 3 in this review! Pros:1) This flashlight is not loose in any of the threaded connections when wielding it. -- As in this flashlight does not rattle when I swing it like a lightsaber... FsssH VWOOOM VWOOM!2) Flashlight has a solid switch on the bottom which is covered by a textured green rubber cap. -- The switch also appears to be of good quality as there are no obvious deficiencies after mashing it for a while.3) This bastard is BRIGHT! -- I can see the spot on high in broad daylight. (Noon CDT with no clouds in the sky.)4) For ~25 USD this is the best flashlight with Cree XM-L T6 LEDs out there.5) When it arrived the package was small enough to fit in my mailbox so I didn't have to muck with a 'Sorry we missed you' slip.6) This flashlight fits completely in my jeans front pocket.Cons:1) The inside of the glass on the flashlight had dust on it, so I had to unscrew the top and wipe it down with a lens cloth.2) Overseas shipping is slow (1 month for my order), but there aren't any manufacturers for this in the US so we're all stuck for now.WARNING: This next con is founded on hearsay from other reviews on Amazon only and I cannot back it up with my own experience.3) Many of the reviews here on Amazon that I have read for these Ultrafire flashlights have indicated that on HIGH output the flashlight will shut off after a short period of time (30 seconds to 3 minutes). This appears to be related to using cheap 18650 Ultrafire batteries as their protective circuit is either faulty or not rated for the load they are claiming the battery is capable of. With this in mind I decided to purchase the top of the line battery for use in this flashlight, which at the time of my purchase was the 3100mAh 3.7V 18650 Battery with IC Protection from EagleTac. The purchase of two batteries and a charger for them from that company actually cost me more than this flashlight (~33 USD), but on the flip side I have not had any problems with the flashlight cutting out while in HIGH output mode after a few minutes (and reliability in a flashlight when you need it is key). And again, your mileage may vary, and I cannot confirm from my personal experience the contents of this Con entry, but I wanted to put the summation of my research of these flashlight/battery combos out there in the event that it might help other people in some way.Overall:This is a great product and I will be getting more of them for friends and family, however, with the slow shipping time I will have to order them soon. And even though there are a few downsides in my post I still believe that this item deserves a 5 star review when put in the perspective of its price point. 5Great light for the price This little light is worth the $10 dollars if you don't need all the refined features you can get in WAY more expensive lights. It has a very good throw on HIGH as I was able to light up trees and the back of houses that were close to 3 football field lengths across a lake. Of course the beam was more spread out at that distance but I could see the light was reaching there, not like my lower powered lights that don't get that far trying the same thing. The beam has a good bright spot for distance and good spill for closer up to see where you are walking. I only need to use the low setting for my walks but its nice to have a medium and high setting for seeing further. I don't have need for the strobe or SOS settings but maybe someone may need them. The settings in order are: full click HIGH, half click MEDIUM, half click LOW, half click STROBE, half click SOS, and back to HIGH if you half click again after SOS. A full click on any setting turns it off but it always comes back on HIGH if you full click it again from off. The light takes one 18650 Lithium-ion battery which can be found here on Amazon. Be sure to get a charger made to charge this battery, also here on Amazon. BTW, the battery does go in positive side first as with most any light, but with this light I saw the spring usually associated with the negative side of a battery up by the LED and it confused me. I highly recommend Obtronic 3400 mAh batteries or their 3100 mAh batteries. Would I buy more of these flashlights if I needed to? YES! P.S. be sure to put a dab of petroleum jelly on the O-rings for extra water resistance. One O-ring in the tail cap, the other O-ring at the bezel. 5Good light This light uses one 18650 battery since the light has no extension tubes. Therefore, it's a good size to put in a pocket or backpack, even with a larger head. The larger head makes it more secure when it is standing on its head. It has only one LED, but the larger reflector throws sufficient light.The 5 modes are OK, but someone should put a flashlight of this size on the market with only high-low modes for all the people who use it to see / find things in the dark. It starts at the brightest setting every time it is turned on unless it is turned off and back on again immediately.This is my primary flashlight for moving around the house at night after turning off all the lights. On the brightest setting, it is not that bright, and it can be clicked to the middle or the low setting easily.The glass lens has a green O-ring that fits nicely in the aluminum cap, a newly-designed feature. The threads should be lubricated on all sections. Because of the O-ring, the light has a green color after it is switched off, and that has lasted for several minutes, not seconds.Mine says UltraFire C8 but came in a black-orange SecurityIng box.UPDATE: 11/30/2014. The reflector used may give a brighter, small central spot in the slightly larger area or the entire small area may be evenly illuminated. Evidently the reflectors are not all manufactured in the same fashion.The glow after the light is switched off is on the light with the green O-ring but not on my two other lights.UPDATE: 9/12/2015. The lights I ordered were TrustFire brand lights and cost just a bit more than $5, not the $9 being charged now. Evidently Amazon has done a deal with this company. Problem is, this company appears to be owned by one person. For this reason, I am not sure I could recommend this product in the future. I never ordered this light after the name was changed. 4TrustFire good light for the price. This flashlight is well made for the price of the light. I have reviewed this light in the past and again would tell anyone who purchases this light to immediately unscrew the end cap and light head from the body and lubricate the threads and "O" rings with petroleum jelly or silicone lubricant. I have bought five different models of TrustFire's LED Creed bulb flashlights and have had good experiences with them less some quirkiness failures that you "figure out the cures" as you use them.I have already addressed one of them above. Lubricate those threads and "O" rings! This does two things... It helps prevent cross threading and stops oxidation which can cause electrical problems. Next, the button switch. These are semi mechanical and electronically controled switches. The problem with these switches usually occurs when the power source is weak. If you use rechargables as the battery source you are more likely to have problems with the switch especially if you use sub-par batteries. Buy the best batteries you can find. If you're having problems with the switch you should try two a123 lithiums in the light. This I have found cures the problem of the switch not "stepping" through the different positions of the switch. If swapping the batteries eliminates the switch problem then you could try discharging your rechargables and recharging them several times to try and get them charge fully. Keep in mind however that the UltraFire BRC 18650 batteries have a regulator chip inside and may never charge to there full potential. (That's a separate review)All in all the UltraFire LED Cree flashlight is a good purchase. The light is extremely bright and the machining and finish are of good quality. I have several SureFire lights and I would put these UtraFire lights right up there with them. I give the UtraFire a four star rating because they come without instructions and most people will not understand how they work (switch) unless they have some understanding about electrical devices and control circuits. Good luck with your purchase! 4Durable and inexpensive flashlight It's ok for the money, but the circuitry must have issues. Mine tends to "blink" or "fade" in and out a little. This for me is a minor annoyance, but in a tactical situation is completely unacceptable. It has continued to work for me for the last year. So it gets four stars instead of three because it's durable. I think the lumen rating they give is misleading. It's bright.....but maybe not as bright as they advertise. Or maybe I just got an older unit or one built on a friday after lunch... 4falls short in quality but its cheap... I bought this flashlight to walk my dog at night. In the week that I have used it I have noticed the intermittent flashing at times. I just cycle it on and off a few times to get a steady beam. Speaking of the beam, its a small spot, at about ten feet its about 6 inches or so in diameter. It illuminates my entire dog (shi tzu). Its supposed to be rated 1000 lumen but my 350 lumen niterider bike light is a lot brighter, has a wider beam pattern and a longer range. Its a cheap flashlight that so far is serving its purpose.Edit1, I found out that to cycle through the five modes (high, med, low, flash, and SOS) its only a half click. derp. So the times I started in modes other than high, it was probably due to half clicking it.Edit2, The control board/ chip is crap, the output doesn't maintain a consistent lumens. The spot beam becomes noticeably smaller and duller the longer its on. after about 6 or 7 uses at 15min to 20min a pop its really dull and have to swap out battery. 3Nice Flashlight, but NOT a CREE T6 While useful, the Ultrafire flashlights delivered were not as indicated in the Amazon header. The CREE lamp in these flashlights is actually the Q5, not the T6 (and it is even marked as a Cree Q5 on the housing). The Q5 puts out about half of the light of the T6. Also, these flashlights have only 3 modes (High, Low, Strobe), not 5 as indicated.I use an 18650 rechargeable lithium ion battery (available from Amazon with charger) in it.The beam has a well-defined center spot about 5 degrees in diameter with a very high brightness of about 14,000 lux. It is surrounded by a 65 degree cone that averages about 110 lux. The total light output is about 180 lumens, which agrees reasonably well with the data sheet of the Q5. (It appears that many of the flashlights using LED lamps have greatly inflated lumen output claims.) The center spot is useful for long range and looking for bolts in an engine compartment in full sunlight. The wide cone is useful for navigating in the dark.I also have a similar Ultrafire flashlight that actually uses the T6 LED along with the 18650 rechargeable lithium battery. The center spot is no brighter, but it is a wider 7 degree cone that is easier to use. The 65 degree cone of the T6 is a good bit brighter than with this Q5 flashlight. In an operating time test, that T6 flashlight was usable, with decreasing brightness, for about 4 hours on high and about 16 hours on the lowest setting. Because of its lower current draw, this Q5 flashlight should be usable with decreasing brightness, on the high setting for 6-8 hours and on the low setting for up to 24 hours - if you are using the 18650 rechargeable lithium battery. Note that recharging these batteries can take from 10-20 hours, so you should probably buy at least 2 with a recharger. Amazon sells these too. I don't have any experience with non-rechargeable batteries in the flashlight.On the high setting, the LED dissipates about 2.5 watts into the wide part of the case, especially into the heat sink grooves between the reflector and the battery case. It will stay cooler if you only hold the battery case behind the grooves to allow airflow over the head.The strobe output is at a dangerous frequency and can cause very bad physiological effects on some people. Be careful not to point the strobe mode directly at anyone.It is a nice, rugged, useful flashlight at the right price -- just not quite as advertised. 40% reliability turning on, but works well once it is I bought two of these flashlights, neither works correctly. Essentially, they almost impossible to turn on.The issue is that about 99.9% of the time simply pressing the on button after installing batteries won't turn them on. Instead, often, they may flicker briefly and then become absolutely dead, and your only chance of turning them on requires unscrewing the head from the batteries and then putting it right back on, sort of resetting something, I guess? I figured that if you try pressing the power button in various ways...lightly, firmly, quickly multiple times...with enough fiddling around eventually they will turn on. Then they seem to function pretty reliably for the next few hours.I've managed to deal with having to spend 3-4 mins struggling to get them on the first time. The brightness and the series of strobe/SOS functions they have after that is almost worth it. I still take them camping, I just know never to depend on them for a light source on demand. I have tried looking for an instruction manual to figure out the issue but the manufacturer apparently doesn't make one. 1I use the trustfire batteries that were recommended and then tried some other batteries I have six of these lights. all purchased in Sept 2014 about six months ago.The light is bright but not more than 300-400 Lumens. I use the trustfire batteries that were recommended and then tried some other batteries.Well now it is January 2015 and the light a starting to fail one by one. NO LIGHT with any type of battery. ,,,,,and I have checked the button cap from my other lights and they still do not burn...so it's not the on/off button.I pulled the LED from the front and and inserted it into another light with a wire to make contact, still no light, and this was a known good light and still is. So my best guess that these were knockoff lights and used cheap LED's for the light source.It's hard to tell from the pictures here what is the real thing and a knockoff...........but the two remaining light I have that are identical, but ffrom different sellers are still working well.I must say "beware" some of these are knockoffs for sure, you just have to look carefully when you get the light and hope for the best since they are selling any and everything and calling it a CREE light. 3

Note that recharging these batteries can take from 10-20 hours, so you should probably buy at least 2 with a recharger. Amazon sells these too. I don't have any experience with non-rechargeable batteries in the flashlight.On the high setting, the LED dissipates about 2.5 watts into the wide part of the case, especially into the heat sink grooves between the reflector and the battery case. It will stay cooler if you only hold the battery case behind the grooves to allow airflow over the head.The strobe output is at a dangerous frequency and can cause very bad physiological effects on some people. Be careful not to point the strobe mode directly at anyone.It is a nice, rugged, useful flashlight at the right price -- just not quite as advertised. 40% reliability turning on, but works well once it is I bought two of these flashlights, neither works correctly. Essentially, they almost impossible to turn on.The issue is that about 99.9% of the time simply pressing the on button after installing batteries won't turn them on. Instead, often, they may flicker briefly and then become absolutely dead, and your only chance of turning them on requires unscrewing the head from the batteries and then putting it right back on, sort of resetting something, I guess? I figured that if you try pressing the power button in various ways...lightly, firmly, quickly multiple times...with enough fiddling around eventually they will turn on. Then they seem to function pretty reliably for the next few hours.I've managed to deal with having to spend 3-4 mins struggling to get them on the first time. The brightness and the series of strobe/SOS functions they have after that is almost worth it. I still take them camping, I just know never to depend on them for a light source on demand. I have tried looking for an instruction manual to figure out the issue but the manufacturer apparently doesn't make one. 1I use the trustfire batteries that were recommended and then tried some other batteries I have six of these lights. all purchased in Sept 2014 about six months ago.The light is bright but not more than 300-400 Lumens. I use the trustfire batteries that were recommended and then tried some other batteries.Well now it is January 2015 and the light a starting to fail one by one. NO LIGHT with any type of battery. ,,,,,and I have checked the button cap from my other lights and they still do not burn...so it's not the on/off button.I pulled the LED from the front and and inserted it into another light with a wire to make contact, still no light, and this was a known good light and still is. So my best guess that these were knockoff lights and used cheap LED's for the light source.It's hard to tell from the pictures here what is the real thing and a knockoff...........but the two remaining light I have that are identical, but ffrom different sellers are still working well.I must say "beware" some of these are knockoffs for sure, you just have to look carefully when you get the light and hope for the best since they are selling any and everything and calling it a CREE light. 3
