  • Great looking but fragile

    Involvement:Novice (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Its great looking and stainless steel! I've been looking for a stainless steel flashlight for some time now. Its small size made it perfect for my wife to use at night when wandering the dark house.

    Cons:

    I've had it for about 3-4 weeks and my wife dropped it last light and now it doesn't work anymore. Looks like it its inherited the originals C3 tendency to break when dropped :-( Very disappointed about this.... so much for LED lasting for years!

    OtherThoughts:

    When it was working it was very bright, although it drains the single AA battery pretty quickly so it would be nice for an extension to be made available so we could run 2 AA batteries.

    Bottomline:

    Even though its such a great looking and bright flashlight, I find it hard to recommend to others due to the fact it broke so easily when my wife dropped it (around a 1 foot drop onto a lino covered wooden floor). One would think they would have addressed this issue with the C3's by now.
