Flashlight Review

OK,
This website is supposed to be about, “handz-on discussion on electronics and more,” and electronics are not limited to just cameras, computers, and tablets. Electronics also include cool stuff like flashlights, etc. This review is about a 300 lumen flashlight–special because it uses just one battery–made by Cree. Cree also produces a 400 lumen flashlight of the same type. This is what one looks like:

I added the paracord wrist strap myself. Here are some specs:
It weighs 65 grams
It is waterproof and skid proof
It has a removeable clip
It has an adjustable focus
It is 300 lumens (really bright)

By now you are probably thinking that this is really expensive, right? Actually, on Amazon.com, it costs $3.65! However, I will warn you, that the one that costs $3.65 takes around three weeks to ship, because it comes straight from China. You can pay about a dollar more and get it quicker.

Here are a few more pictures:

It has a rear click button:

To zoom you slide the top element:

I will do another post with pictures showing how powerful it is, at night.
