Powerful, but ruined by the unreliable button.
on 9 October 2017
Powerful, but ruined by the same infamous button found on all chinese flash lights these days (the same button that died on my last flash light). Depressing the button by as little as 0.3mm turns off the light. This extremely tiny travel distance combined with chinese manufacturing tolerances means that after some light use, the button can no longer reliably turn on the light. For a while you can shake or tap it to restore the electrical contact, but eventually it won't work at all. The packaging says the button is rated to 25,000 presses, but this is just a lie. Its probably luck of the draw - if you buy 2 of these, one might last years, while the other will have a dud button within weeks/months.
The brightness is great and the rest of the product seems to be decent quality, so its a pity the button ruins it. And its a pity 95% of all flash lights on Amazon use this same inferior chinese button design.
