I won't tell you how many LED lights I own, because my wife would shoot me if she guessed how much I've spent. But suffice it to say, I've seen many design approaches and features applied to LED pocket sized lights, and I believe this light will satisfy me for some time to come, especially at the current bargain price under fifty dollars offered by Amazon, BatteryJunction, and others.
So here's what it has to offer to a non-military, non-police, but demanding civilian user like myself:
- Three very usable light levels, call them bright, normal, and very low, which provide 0.5 hour, 4 hours, and 240 hours of battery life from a single Lithium cell. Where bright can blind an assailant, normal is brighter than your average three D-cell light, and low will let you read a concert program, navigate at night in an unfamiliar hotel room, check on your sleeping baby without waking her, or read War and Peace through a multi-night power outage. And, there's an instantly available strobe mode that can confuse an adversary or warn off oncoming motorists if your car breaks down and you've used up your last road flare. In practical terms, think of the battery capacity as offering 100 bright, ten-second light blasts plus over 100 hours of continuous dim light.
- Convenient flush-mount tail cap switch with both momentary-on and stay-on capabilities. So you can easily click hold for a half second to find the aspirin or read the trail marker, and maximize the utility of that half hour of bright time, by using it up in only teeny tiny chunks. The flush mount switch lets you set it on a table, pointing at the ceiling, for use as an area light. The wasp waist body shape makes it easy to retrieve and hold the light with two fingers and operate the switch with your thumb.Read more ›
They never shipped it and I checked for weeks. Then, what I believe was their fulfillment house shipped a Japaneese porn film instead. I had to unwind all of that and get that garbage out of my house. They subsequently emailed an apology... but NO flashlight. Terrible!
