New AA Cree R2 light at KD

Well, this looks interesting:

SKY RAY S-A1 CREE R2 5-Mode(1*AA) (Gun Grey) SKU: S009303

As usual, KD provides no other details.  But QCG appears to have the same light and they claim:

  • Intelligent memory function.
  • Dual lanyard hole design .
  • Five levels of brightness meets your versatile lighting demands
  • Exquisite with compact size, easy to carry for ordinary use or travel.

 

 

 

 

So for $14.23 it looks to be a good deal for an R2 LED.  I just wonder if it can tailstand.  I have the SmallSun ZY-C41, which appears to be an identical body, and it can tailstand.  It is ugly but well made.  It is a bit large for an AA light, the largest one I own.  I really like the spring loaded post-style battery contact in the tailswitch.  I also wonder if this Skyray is really an R2, as DealExtreme sells the same light with an XPE-Q3 supposedly.

Ah is that right?  Well if you get it, make sure to get it from KD, because DX's version has a Q5 supposedly and KD's is supposedly an R2.

If you take a look at the reviews on DX it seems that the lights run only 14500's.....and then you have some owners say that it works well with nimh and lith chemistry's.

With Darkness, there will always be Light.

Yes I know, that sort of worries me, because I don't have any 14500's and I'm not really interested in a light that can only use them.
