These lights last a long time (much longer than the cheapies!), even more if you have and use the dimmer when you want to preserve your night vision. It's also easy to replace the batteries with standard inexpensive CR2016 or CR2032 batteries, depending on which light you have.
There's a very convenient plastic clip mount available which you can use to attach your Photon to a hat, headband, bike or anything else. If you get the Photon Freedom Micro light, the clip and a keychain quick release are included.
Make sure your Photon Light is the new "2x brighter" edition if you're going for a white LED, or look into other colors/options. IR, UV, multicolor versions are available. There's a "covert" body style available which doesn't throw as much light to the sides - also good for preserving night vision.
Best all around is the new 2x bright white which is actually real white light (not light blue like older LED designs). The coolest looking color is probably the turquoise. The best combo for night hiking is the Freedom Micro Green (Covert).
I'm just AMAZED at how bright this light is, especially considering that it uses just a couple of button lithium batteries (CR-2016 or CR-2032)! The brightness is adjustable and continuously variable from dim to very bright. At the brightest setting, it is almost as bright if not as bright as a regular LED flashlight.
The battery life is simply phenomenal. I've used it for about 6 hours worth of light, and so far, its brightness hasn't diminished.
- 4 Modes
(1) Regular Mode
In the regular mode, press the button once to turn the light on, and press it again to turn the light off.
(2) Strobe Light Mode
In the Strobe Light mode, the Micro-Light can be used as a safety beacon light.
(3) SOS Mode
In the SOS mode, the Micro-Light can continously send an SOS signal · · · _ _ _ · · · (3 short pulses, followed by 3 long pulses, followed by 3 short pulses).
(4) Pulse Mode
In the pulse mode, press the switch to turn on the light; let go of the switch to turn the light off.Read more ›
I ordered 16 of the Photon Freedom Microlight, described as "LRI FMW Photon Freedom LED Keychain Micro-Light, White Beam." I ordered these as gifts for one of my teams at work who did a good job on a tough project, and I was going to hand them out at a teambuilding event last week. These were to be sold by Micro-Tools and fulfilled by Amazon.com. Regrettably, the lights, ordered 2-day on a Sunday night, didn't arrive until Thursday, too late for the teambuilding event. Not to worry. Nobody's perfect, and no problem: I'll hand them out to people at their desks!
But wait! What's this? I didn't get what I ordered! The product I ordered was a Photon Freedom shown in the Photon packaging with accessories, which is what I expected to see when I opened the box. What I actually received was 16 little generically-labelled plastic bags that were stapled shut and each contained one light that might (at best) be the lesser (and older) Photon Micro-Light II, but without the Photon packaging or the cool accessories. Closer inspection has revealed that these lights do not actually match anything currently for sale on the Photon website, so I am led reluctantly to the conclusion that Micro-Tools has not only sent me the wrong product, but is also selling knocked-off copies of Photon's stuff.
Absolutely infuriating. Avoid Micro-Tools. I would give zero stars if I could.
Light is dimmable at ~ 10 brightness levels
Very easy to operate with just 1 button
Very compact and EDC-able so won't take up much space on your keychain
This thing is so bright that people have to turn their eyes away even if I hold it facing up. AND it's waterproof I think.
If I had this in Skyrim I wouldn't have to cast all those annoying Magelight spells. Nerd alert -_-
Caution: There have been problems with all Photon flashlights (even those sold by Amazon) where you may be sent a fake or a different model. But Amazon's RMA policy is awesome so just chat with a rep and they'll resolve the issue in about 5 mins, email you a return slip so you could send the bootleg back and send you a replacement. I ordered 2 at different times, got 1 correct and authentic and another knockoff of a different model, Amazon resolved it very professionally. Love this site!

I saw a lot of negative comments on this. After using it for over a month now I don't understand why. It's bright, the light stays on after you press the button. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Robert Bruner
Provides an often needed light when needing a quick light as it's always handy on your key chain.Published 1 month ago by stevetyner
The only issue I have is it turns off on its own after about five seconds. I may not understand how to change the setting to stay on until I turn it off, so I won't hold that... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazog

Not the true photon microlight. This will stay on when you press it once and turn off when you press it a second time. Read morePublished 2 months ago by draco_cj
