So what's so special about this FW3A? Long story short, it's a flashlight designed by a bunch of flashlight hobbyists. Namely budgetlightforum. It has a crazy number of features, and everything is highly customizable in terms of modes due to its customized (open source) firmware.
Downsides of this flashlight:
It may take a while to understand how to use all the features, but mostly you can ignore most of the features and it works fine if you just want to use it as a basic flashlight: click on and off, and hold to ramp up and down.
In full turbo mode, it gets so hot that it could literally start a fire, so it's no toy. You should only activate full brightness for short periods of time, it ramps down in brightness to preserve the battery and temperature quickly, because a little flashlight like this has no way of dissipating the heat from its 3 LEDs.
Lastly, this comes with various LEDs from Neutral white and Nichia LED, but this amazon listing only has 6500k cool white (around 70 CRI). I don't mind cool tints but I'm sure tint zealots will chime in and rag on it. If you want to order the other variants (LEDs, different colors, titanium body etc, you can go to the official Lumintop Store on Aliexpress.
Doesn't come with a charger, you supply your own.
The other thing is that the electronic switch is very easy to activate, so be careful you don't set your pants on fire if you pocket carry this. You can activate a lockout mode if you are worried about it.
