It has ~22mm pill, (Convoy S5 and S7 pills do not fit.), plastic but great quality reflector, glass lens. Threads, pill was very dirty, I had to clean. Since the light was not bright enough and I heard rumors about Lattice Bright and fake Cree LEDs, I contacted the store that I ordered this light, they told me it is Cree, but they (Lattice Bright) work with Cree company, producing low-end LEDs for Chinese market, and they are doing tests, trials and education etc... Not sure if this is the case but low performance of this light seems to be because of switch, the LED looks like Cree.

Switch limits current a lot, without switch it draws 0.7 on high from Liion 18650 (3.86v measured voltage before test)

With switch: on high 0.35A, mid 0.16A, low 0.05 A

Cons: Poor switch, received dirty, tiny pill.
