Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week
+ Light weight and whistle is loud
+ Very bright LED, though there is only 1
+ It has a big rubbery button to turn on the LED
+ No air bubbles in the compass or thermometer
+ Unscrew it to reveal the small mirror and magnifier, with a small compartment (not water tight)
- Lanyard is thin and easy to break
- Made of brittle plastic, will break under stress and heat
- Thermometer isn't accurate and the scale is in degree Celsius only; a pro for me but will be a con for others who used to the Fahrenheit scale. It has a scale division of 2.5°C.
- Magnifier is made of plastic
- You have to hold on the button to turn the LED on
- A little bigger than I expected
To change the battery for the LED, you need to remove the screw inside the compartment and open up the battery cover (requires some effort to remove the cover). It uses two 3v 2016 cell batteries, if you replace it with one 2032 it will be quite dim.
On my laptop screen, the photos shows it as black but it is actually dark green.
Despite of the flaws, it is still a handy all-in-one tool to carry along while outdoor in remote locations.
