Gift for customer

Last time i use the TK 703 as a gift for customer.

This year i need:

- AA flashlight

- Spend less($5 to $13 - The lowest possible)

I saw good price on these:

- UniqueFire S10 (not sure work with AA and 14500. Different seller have different description)

- UltraFire C3 (Black version)

- UltraFire M2 (i like akoray 106 but this is cheaper)

- SMALLSUN ZY-C41 (It has a Q3)

What do you think?

I need about 20 light, so maybe i can find "wholesale" price.

Any other suggestion?

The mentioned Sipik68 is very good, but the BQ/anodization varies a bit. (One had a loose clip, another one had a scratching zoom activation) I had horrible experiences with alu versions of the C3's. I would go for the Skyray S-A1, or the SS C3's (does Lightake still sell the good ones?). They are on the more expensive side of your range, but I think you can really impress your customers with their quality. I have 2 Sipik's here and 3 S-A1's. The good old Romisen G2 might also be an option. (My father has 3) One of the few good, inexpensive AA throwers.

I find its often better to go with a simple one mode with non-flashlight people. Along that line, the Uniquefire AA-S1 tends to be a winner.

I don't 'need' a light :p. Just the fact that i now have a generic 30-40 lumen 2xAA as everyday carrier which is 15cm long.... :d

One mode would be good IMO.

This or Sipik.

I don´t think it is very important to have the latest or brightest led. First impression is important.

CQG S1 (AAA) or S2 (AA model) are pretty nice.  The gift box isn't terribly impressive, but the lights themselves are nice durable keychain/pocket lights, and they're $10.50 (S1) or $11 apiece in lots of 20.

Might want to talk to him about getting ones without the BLF engraving though Wink

Thanks everyone for your opinion. I think i'll go with AA-S1 or with M2.

Sipik is a great light (i have the black and the silver version) but flood to throw is too much for someone that is not like US! I gift a fake sipik to my friend (not flashaolic) but he still prefers the standard C3
