Drop in switch Works good Just right for my BL-8498
CONS
None so far
I destroyed the switch of by BL-8498 FTT flashlight (SK-98 clone) after maximizing the current of the light by putting copper braids at all its springs. The switch appeared to be burned/melted so I had to look for a similar switch to make it work again. The other switches I had fits very loosely and eventually suffered the same fate - melted metal points. When I got this switch, it fits perfectly at my flashlight's tail cap - with no play - ensuring that the metal parts are in full contact with each other. I have tested my light last night using it extensively for more than 30 mins at a time and this switch simply performed beyond my expectations.

spotless finish flawless workmanship high output very convenient mode selection neutral white light good throw
CONS
None
I ordered 2 of these last 22 May 2013 and I got my items today, 22 days after closing the order. I've been reading good things about the Convoy flashlights and particularly this C8 and I did not realize how good it really was until I had one in my hand. I have an UltraFire C8 and the latter is miles away on all aspects - UI, build quality, finish, output, throw - except the price. I've also ordered AMC7135s with these and I can't wait to push this lights to the limits. Thank you FastTech!

Smooth nice finish, Excellent build quality; Decent beam strength; Magnetized tail
CONS
Loose pill - which was easily corrected with a few twists - and which I don't consider a con really.
I got this light this noon 24 days after making my order and it arrived in pristine condition - very smooth, very nicely made, and very cute. I immediately tried the TrustFire 16340s which I ordered with this light and behold, it packed a powerful beam. Powerful for its size really. In addition to that, I also found out that the lights tail has a strong magnet - which is not stated in the specs but which is a great add-on! I've been contemplating on getting the Olight Baton S10 because of this (magnet) feature and now that I have the UF-K21, I see no need to get it anymore. This feature will he very useful if I do repairs or inspections on my car as the light can be easily attached to the hood. Thank you FastTech for this light!

Good build quality Nice finish Bright at short distances
CONS
Cannot throw well
I ordered one of these last 14 August and got my Eva last 08 September. The first thing I noticed when I opened my FastTech parcel was that my little flashlight was nicely made. I also noticed that the emitter of my Eva was XP-G2 and not XP-G and this was a nice mistake if indeed it was a mistake. :-) When I placed an alkaline AAA in, it made a bright light light. However, the brightness of the light seems to get lost when aimed farther. To be sure of its performance, I took some readings and here they are: Tailcap reading = 830 mA @ 1.468 volts = 146 lumens (XP-G2) Lux reading at 6 meters = 11 lux = 396 candles = 40 meters throw. It might not be good at throw but its not a big deal since it was not purchased to be one anyway. It will be part of the key holder for my car keys - and I don't need to shine it 20 meters away to help me get inside my car at night.:-) Over-all I'm very happy with my Eva and thanks for this light FastTech!

Very affordable Good cells
CONS
None
My calculator has been dormant for a while because I can't find a good source for LR44 cells and I was glad that I ordered these from FastTech. It not only brought my calculator back to life, I also found out that it works for my other gadgets as well like my bike blinkers. Thanks FastTech.
