The Streamlight KeyMate is a rugged, bright unit for its size. It has a slightly bigger LED that shows a somewhat larger, brighter beam than the Nano does. The bezel portion is a bit more difficult to turn, making it less likely that the light will either turn itself on or fall apart in your pocket (or the car floor), as can happen with the Nano. The batteries are a larger LR44, so they will work quite a bit longer than the LR41s used in the Nano.
Unfortunately, the KeyMate's size is almost 3X the volume of the Nano. I was expecting something that would still be unobtrusive on a keychain, not something that would draw undue attention to my pants. Consequently, the KeyMate will find its life as a spare flashlight in the car, instead.
For our keychains, I think I will simply add some silicone grease to the Nano's threads, likely eliminating the Nano's looser bezel issue.
While I had been concerned about battery replacement for both, I no longer am. Amazon has replacement batteries (LR41 for the Nano and LR44 for the KeyMate - both use four) available for shockingly little cost in multi-packs.
Final analysis--both flashlights are good buys for different needs.
UPDATE: Be careful to hold the KeyMate when locking or unlocking your car. The metal rim around the bezel can definitely leave scratches on paint. FYI, the Nano does not do this simply because it has a rounded bezel, is much lighter and hangs a little higher when dangling on your keychain.Read more ›
Compared to the Nano, the Keymate is more rugged, in particular the bulb in the Keymate is protected by a lens. The Nano has no lens. Both turn on/off by turning the head. The head on the Keymate is harder to turn and there are more turns before it pops off, so the Keymate won't accidentally turn on or come apart if it's banging around with a bunch of keys. Surprisingly, the keyring clasp on the Nano is sturdier than the one on the Keymate. If small size is the most important feature, I'd go with the Nano. If ruggedness is the most important factor, go with the Keymate. Dependable operation is important, but unless you can get high quality replacement batteries at a low price, longevity may not be an issue. For both Nano and Keymate, I've seen ads for replacement batteries which cost about the same (or more!) than a whole new unit.
I use it when I need a light quickly or unexpectedly. It's not something I use for serious or heavy use, or when I need a lot of light. I use bigger flashlights for that. This might well be the flashlight I use to help me find that bigger flashlight, though!
I like this design in particular because it uses a twist-head on/off switch. I've had various push-button, slide-switch, and squeeze lights, but found they would always get turned on in my pocket as I sat on/against them. That killed the battery in short order. For some reason, the twist-head on this design doesn't have that problem. YMMV.
I used to own the "Black" color model, but after several months the black paint started to wear off unevenly, which looked crummy. Some time later, I lost the flashlight (I'm always losing small things). This time, I went with the "Titanium" color. As usual, "Titanium" really means "bare, polished metal", and thus doesn't have any half-worn paint problems.
Now before I start with the pros/cons, I want to let other flashlight hobbyist out there know, that yes this cute little powerhouse will take a 10220 sized Li-ion rechargeable battery with no diminish in performance! (aside from possibly slightly less runtime than the alkalines (by 50mAh), although I have been playing with the light for several hours now, and my 10220 battery has barely dropped in voltage at all). but hey, it's rechargable, so I can use it as much as I want without any repercussions (well maybe a slightly higher power bill :-P).
I have included pictures for this product that shows it's size comparison to several different objects, and also shows the 10220 li-ion battery.
Now to the pros/cons.
- Bright! Wow, I was surprised when I first turned on this light. I have had many keychain lights in the past, and this one blows them out of the water by far. For how small this is, I am impressed, and that is coming from somebody who owns 1,000+ lumen professional flashlights. The amount of light is a very useful output, and with dark-adapted vision in a dark environment, the output is great for just about anything. I only wish I had one of these when I was a kid! (hint-hint to the parents out there, these no-doubt would make great stocking stuffers for the young-ones ;-))
- Cheap, for around $12 this is a price easy to swallow and is not a heavy loss if the light finds a place to hide where you can't find it.Read more ›
