Product Description

If you think the concept of multi-tasking is overrated, don't tell it to the guys who developed the patent-pending Recon. Because this long-awaited L.E.D format lets you choose from four different colors of light, depending on your needs of the moment. The official name for this proprietary technology is D.I.A.L., which stands for Diode Illumination Adjustable Lens. Basically, this new design lets you dial in the color that'll serve you best: White for general situations, red for preserving night vision, blue for identifying fluids, and green for map reading. It's all powered by one AA battery you can anticipate long battery life which come with the Recon. It weighs just 2.6 ounces. Yet it delivers a military ton of task-specific light, right when you need it.

This is a super flashlight. First, it is not very bright. The white light is bright enough to see your way around the house and through the woods, but I wouldn't chose this light for searching for a lost dog at night.

It is small, easily fits in a pocket, and I have been using it with the original battery (one AA) for seven months. I can turn it on/off and change colors with one hand. I have used it clipped to the bill of a hat, and it made a fine headlamp. The red filter provides dim light, but it is enough to see my way around the house, preserves night vision, and doesn't bother my wife when I come to bed late.

I wouldn't chose this for my primary flashlight, but it is probably the one I use the most.

I got this flashlight to mount to the bottom of my sd video camcorder. I wanted something very small and lightweight, but that also had good versatility and brightness. This flashlight is EXTREMELY small, i was actually quick shocked when i saw it for the first time. It uses one battery and should last you about 2-3 months if you use it a bunch. The light is not super duper bright, i wouldn't carry it alone as a hiking light or if i was needing a really bright light, but for the size it is adequate. It has multiple color lenses and they all serve a purpose, white is for seeing the best, red is for covert operations or lighting without being seen, or ruining your nightvision. Green is for reading topographical maps at night, blue is for picking up blood or other fluid trails (works well for spotting leaks on vehicles at night)

This light is a great pocket light, very small, bright enough to do what it needs to do, and has a lot of features for the size. Great finish quality, and good weight (feels substantial). Like i said before, if you are looking for a super bright light, this isn't for you, i usually use a led headlamp when camping, or my Blue-point xenon cr123 powered mini light which produces about 1000 times more output for its size. This is a nice little light for what it is tho.

I bought this flashlight to use at night on the bridge of a ship. It has turned out to be one of the best flashlights I have ever bought for that purpose. The battery life is excellent and it fits nicely in your pocket. For my purposes I do not want a very bright light and having the ability to switch between four different colors is a huge advantage at night when I may want a brighter or dimmer light. All in all it is a great light, I am bummed a little that the spring in the base has worn out, so I need to order another one. If you work in an environment where night vision is a priority, ie a cockpit, bridge of ship, etc, this is an excellent light.

I bought this for working around a telescope at night without having too much bright light. Having only one LED is great for that. Not too bright, not too dim. I like having the choice of something other than just white when I need it (IE Blue, Green). The battery life is great too. I was mainly wanting it for the red light.

Here's my complaint. It just isn't red enough. It's more an orange/red. Some people may be okay with that because it still preserves your night vision, and some may not want the red light too dim. But I work with the public and when I shine the red light at the eyepiece, it's just too bright for them. Luckily, I had a red lens from an older flashlight. I cut a piece from it to just fit over the red part of the wheel and glued it on with clear contact cement. Now it's perfect. I can still use the other 3 colors and the red is (finally) just right.

I still feel like I got my moneys worth because is seems like a tough little flashlight...time will tell. The description says if comes with a lanyard but it doesn't. It does have a hook for one on the back so you can wear it around your neck. A shoestring works fine. It's small & lightweight, so no neckaches. It would've gotten 5 stars had the red been redder, but I'm still recommending it.

I've had a few of the Gerber Recons over the years and have dropped/kicked/destroyed a few of them. They take a good amount of abuse (but like anything, won't survive being dropped in a deep lake.)

The flashlight is bright enough - it's no Fenix, but sometimes you don't need to overpower something just to see. The white light is the strongest, and the red light is decent enough to get around in the dark. Green is pretty decent to read maps in the dark with (this is hardly used), and the blue LED is used for blood/bodily fluids, which, I'm sad to say, I try to avoid (but it IS pretty cool to play CSI with it at a hotel or somewhere dodgy.)

The battery (1 AA) has lasted a long time with this, and I'm happy with this. LEDs are great when it comes to battery life, so you can use it periodically and be relatively confident that it'll work fine.

Bottom line: If you need a flashlight that you'll use a lot and need to have handy for a myriad of uses, you can't go wrong. The price is right, and it'll take a good amount of drops like a pro.

I took this little guy out into the field for roughly three weeks and it worked great. I had it attached to the outside of my kit with some good ol' 550 cord so naturally it took a great deal of abuse. It survival through the rain and mud just fine. The biggest thing to note is that this is NOT a very bright light.It is perfect for reading maps or doing other close up tasks. The rotating filter bezel is very positive and never moved on its own. I primary used the red and white lenses, but having 4 colors in such a small package is never a bad thing. I like how you can have it rotated to a certain filter that you want to use before turning the light on. The only down sides are that it is not very bright and the clip is pretty flimsy.
