All of these flashlights were brighter, lighter and smaller than my vintage E1. The one I setled on for EDC was the 4Sevens Mini 123 R5 Edition.
Since I won't be writing three entirely different reviews, let me tell you what I like and dislike in a EDC light:
* It has to be something I always have with me - thus the term EDC.
* It has to fit on a key chain (something that my SureFire E1 did begrudgingly)
* It has to be small, light and have at least low, medium and high settings
* It is preferable to have a dedicated on-off switch to a twist-on switch. This is because I don't want the light to turn on accidentally and not be ready when I need it.
Much less important to me are things like strobe, SOS, beacon, and so on because of two reasons: first they are invariably difficult to activate (strobe coming to mind as the most useless in a tactical situation) and second, the additional weight and cost isn't justified since it's unlikely I'll ever use them. Follow me on this: is this the primary use as a flashlight or a signalling device?Read more ›
It's BRIGHT. When we had to collect water from the river at night man did I feel secure with my little pocket spot light to make sure there where no critters. (lots of gaiter and cotton mouth in the area)
It's small and light weight. It fit in the head band nicely and takes up no room in a pocket or tackle box.
I didn't personally test it but it's durable. There are plenty of videos out there showing people running over this thing and dropping it from over passes etc. We get it, it's much stronger then you need it to be.
It's bright. I was in a group of other people and when working around the fire I was blinding my camp mates. Even on the lowest setting it was a bit uncomfortable for the others in my group and the intensity was unnecessary. Others in my group had some kind of head lamp that had a low green light setting that didn't mess with everyone's night vision and was pleasant to be around. I suppose I would have to have two lights and switch back and forth if I wanted this feature.
You have to twist the light to turn it on. normal this would be fine but this thing has like 3 intensity settings plus a myriad of other settings. The twist operation makes it a little cumbersome feeling to try and get your correct setting. If you keep this unit by the bed to go check on what goes bump in the night the time it takes to get that blinding setting might be a concern if you don't get it the first try. If you think this is a gripe try operating anything that requires fine motor skills when your adrenalin is pumping after hearing a loud noise in your house in the middle of the night.Read more ›
The only downside, and potentially a bad one for those who wear this clipped to a keychain or belt is that the tiny hole in the base for the split ring is so tiny that only a very, very small (so that ends up meaning very,very thin) split ring will fit. Think 1/4". The very thin ring MUST be replaced regularly as it will wear in two very quickly. A minor complaint, but one the mfg. could easily remedy by drilling a larger hole allowing the use of a standard 1/2" or 3/4" split ring.
