If you watch any of our videos or flashlight reviews we always reference CREE. LEDS CREE makes quality on die LED chips. The are pretty much the Rolls Royce os LED lights. They are found in top end lights. So you can imagine my dismay when I came across a mini CREE LED tactical light for $3.80. I had to do a double take. The good thing about Amazon is the reviews. Over 3 thousand people gave this light a good review and it is an Amazon best seller.  They claim 300 lumens which I think is a bit of an overstatement.  It is even waterproof!

I ordered two and a month later they showed up. To my surprise they actually feel like decent quality light. They have a rubber covered push button on the back that turns the light on and off. One AA battery powers the light for about 1.5 hours. The focus is controlled via the adjustable head. You get a range of beam patterns, when zoomed all the way you can actually see the shadow of the LED chip on the wall. After using the light for a little while I like it. It is portable enough for an EDC and I love that it only uses 1 AA battery. I do however not think that it is a genuine CREE LED and is a knock off. That being said it is a good value if you are willing to wait for it to get shipped to you.
