    I just got my Rexlight REX2.0 XR-E P4 CREE LED from Kai Domain

    Fit and finish is excellent.

    Type III Hard Anodize is excellent, no flaws.

    Bezel and rear tailcap screws on and off very easy but unfortunately one of my o-rings broke.

    Specs from Kai Domain's Website,

    Highlights:
    - Best performance and price ratio ever!
    - The great and trustworthly light from Rexlight.
    - Durable and professional craftmenship with TRUE HAIII coating
    - Uses CREE P4 XR-E LED Bulb
    - Accepts 3.6V/3.7V 14500 Li-ion cell, or one 1.2V/1.5V AA cell
    - Five light modes (low/middle/high/strobe/SOS)
    - Optional CR123A/2AA extension tube (available shortly)
    - AR coated and harden glass lens
    - Dual in-line o-rings to protect flashlight from the environment
    - Extremely bright and pure white color light output
    - Uses Aluminum textured reflector and improved silicon operational switch in red and orange
    - Extra copper components for improved conductivity

    I think the Rexlight priniting should have been facing the other way. All the lights I have the logo faces the lens not the tail.

    Very nice review, thanks!
    Looks a lot like a JetBeam MKII clone, or maybe just rebranded or who knows what...
    The Fenix and the Dexlight seem brighter in your pics, are they?
    What do you think about this light?

    Yes the Dexlight and the Fenix looks brighter.

    It took a while to get used to the UI. It's a good deal for what I paid for the Rex Light, $30.00 USD a piece. Nothing spectacular about the Rex Light.
