I was impressed by the Rovyvon's small size, light weight and potent output. The UI may sound a little complicated, but you get used to it very quickly. I chose the A5R because I wanted the red side light and not the UV, although I can see where having a UV light can be useful. I like the green GITD of the A5R as well. Don't expect its green glow to last very long though. It quickly fades in less than two minutes. Still, a nice feature. Runtimes were surprisingly very close to advertised. The tint is on the Cool White side and as expected, it is basically a floody, with a slightly visible center hotspot. I found the A5R ramped down from its 550 lumen High to about 65 lumens after approx two minutes as the manual states. Then, it slowly ramped down to about one lumen over the next 35 minutes or so. I noticed the manual and various websites claim the runtime on High was 38 minutes. I contacted Rovyvon and got a response in less than SIX hours. I was told the Rovyvon Auroras ramp down from High and over the stated runtime for High, will go down to one lumen during that time. Consequently, you do not get 38 minutes on High. You get 38 minutes of light. The first two minutes on High/550 lumens, then to 65 lumens, ending at about one lumen. While on my testing on High, the red LED light that indicates low battery came on after about 35 mins and it stayed on after turning off the light. The metal bezel will become very hot after two minutes on High. I also did a runtime test on Medium. The stats claim 55 mins and sure enough, I got right around 50 mins on Med with a fully charged battery. The lumen output slowly ramped down while on Med from the stated 230 lumens to around 65 lumens like it did on High. You can still get three levels of output while draining the battery, but each level will be less than advertised. While on Med, the bezel did not get too hot to hold like it did on High, even after 50 mins. The red LED light came on after approx an hr of my testing on Med.
I like that fact the Rovyvon comes with a micro USB cable, lanyard, pocket clip, spare USB port cover and beaded neck chain. I don't plan on using the lanyard or beaded chain for this type of light, but they're still nice to have. I can see needing the spare USB cover if and when the original one gets lost or breaks off. Charging the A5R was simple. The red LED comes on to signal it is very low on power. The light will be very dim on all three settings by the time the red LED light comes on. The LED light turns blue when charging is complete. The A5R still functions while charging. It took about 45 minutes to fully charge from almost completely dead. This is also exactly what the manual/stats claim. The advertised runtimes and charge time were very accurate. More often than not, companies make claims of long runtimes on various settings and actual user testing proves them to be over-inflated. I appreciate the honesty of the claims made by Rovyvon as well as their quick customer service response time. I have tried to contact other flashlight manufacturers with questions over the years, and more often than not, I never get a response. And the fact that Rovyvon is in China, makes it even more impressive.
Overall, I like the light and will most likely get one of the other seven other Aurora models.
