Nice overall quality feel. It has a bit of heft with the 3-AAs and feels good in the hand, despite being so compact. The lens is beautiful and so clear that ambient light can hit the LED and reflect so brightly it almost looks like it's on when it isn't.
The dual switches are handy, engage positively, and work every time. I've taken to using the top switch, and of course you can switch to the solid tail cap if you'll never use the tail switch, but I like having both. It will tail-stand perfectly even with the tail switch in place.
Bit heavy to have in your pocket if you don't know you'll be using a light, but because it's so short in length, it tucks away easily in very small spaces like a small drawer, glovebox, or camera bag or briefcase.
The multiple modes are quite useful, especially the ability to set it on "low" or "medium" but bounce up to "full" with an extra click. You can keep it on a sane, pathfinding output, then quickly blast it if you need the extra punch.
And boy does it have the extra punch when you want it. I know LED lights are blowing out all the old standards for brightness, but this light really is shockingly powerful. It will put a spot on low-hanging clouds, light up the entire backyard, or shine fish and lobsters under three feet of seawater water at midnight. I guess it's a bit more of a "flooder" than a "thrower," but it throws nicely too, while lighting a wide path.
Battery life seems great. I've yet to kill a set unexpectedly, but I use Eneloops and charge when it's important.
The aforementioned modes, though handy, are not always easy to cycle through. You twist the head to go through them, and it's not easy to always nail exactly the output you want. Plus, although it (nicely) "remembers" the setting you left it on, it's easy to accidentally twist the head a bit while it's off and lose it.
The swivel clip to which the lanyard attaches is kind of clunky, and will escape the retaining lip, requiring you to force it back into place, which happens with some frequency if you use the lanyard, because the clip will typically be right under your palm. You have to use it, though, because the lanyard hole, while attractively integrated into the body, is super narrow, so you can't just thread the lanyard through it.
Also, I loosen the tail cap whenever I put it away, which seems to have prevented to the slow drain others have mentioned. I'd rather not have to to that though, as you always have to remember to tighten it back up when grabbing it. This is just the way you have to handle a lot of these lights though.
The holster is kind of a wash. It's nice to be able to store the light in something that protects the lens, but it relies on being very tight to hold the light secure. I get why people might use it, because the light's just a little to heavy and bulky to keep in your pocket all the time, but I don't use it. I drop it in my pocket for short periods when I expect to be using it, or carry it in my hand on nighttime walks and so forth.
Overall, though, this is an amazing little piece of equipment. Three AAs really seems to hit the sweet spot for amazing output, reasonable battery life, and of course the ready availability of this type of battery. I wouldn't go without the rechargeable Eneloops though.
Highly recommended for anyone looking for a solidly built, very powerful, yet extremely compact light that runs on easy-to-deal-with AAs. It's quickly become my go-to flashlight and has done everything I've asked, from late-night walks to shining the afore-mentioned lobsters (just for entertainment -- no lobsters were harmed) to lighting up the whole back yard to deal with possum / dog conflicts.
So two units and both defective in different ways, that is not a good sign. After the replacement unit I kind of threw up my hands and gave up, the unit works more or less I just can not leave it in high mode. Hopefully this fault doesn’t kill the light at some point. It is too bad, I was eying a SX25L3 too but I don’t have a lot of confidence it will be an acceptable product at this point.
The head-twisting interface seemed interesting and intuitive when I read about it, but now I realize how easy it is for it to fail. The tech behind it is simple; there are 3 small contact pins inside the head of varying heights; as you loosen the head, they progressively lose contact, and the level changes. The problem with my light is that two of the contact pins are the same length, and thus their contact state is always in sync.
I've reached out to Eagletac's customer support, and I hope they'll replace my light with one that works as intended. All in all, I now think that a light with this many features should just have a "Mode" button for you to explore them, much like the Sunwayman D40A.
