    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Very small, very bright if used with rechargeable (3.6-3.7V) battery

    Easy to change modes using partial press of end cap.

    Good price, not great.

    Cons:

    Flashing modes seem useless.

    Brightness is heavily dependent on the battery used. 3.6-3.7V rechargeables are MUCH brighter than CR123A disposables. But even with disposables, there's a huge range of brightness as voltage varies. As an example. a CR123A which measures 2.9-3.0V w/o load may be very disappointing in terms of brightness. However one which measures 3.1-3.2V may seem pretty good, but still nothing like a rechargeable 3.6-3.7V Li-Ion.

    No mode memory.

    OtherThoughts:

    A lanyard would probably be more useful than the clip

    Bottomline:

    Very good, not perfect.
