Great little torches - pity about the 3 modes,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: CREE Q5 3W Led 350 Lumens mini Flashlight Zoomable Torch AA (Misc.)
I got two of these for going along the beach at night in Thailand and they were brilliant (in both senses). I really like that they push out a lot of light from a single AA and being able to narrow the beam is useful. We left one behind at a beach restaurant so I ordered some more when we got back. I did see that they were meant to have multiple modes but hoped the review that said not was correct. But yes, they do. You just want to switch on a nice, bright torch but you get that only once every three goes. In between you get the utterly useless flashing and dim modes. It's like those strings of LED Xmas lights that default to flashing modes, just because they can. Hopefully the manufacturer can return to just producing good torches rather than ones with frustrating gimmicks to get in the way.
