  • A lot of light for a very short moment.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - Very light & small, can be put into pocket or purse.

    - Build quality is better than other budget lights.

    - LED is very well centered.

    - Throw is a little wider than in most other small flashlights, so great for indoor use.

    Cons:

    - Very inefficient. Draws 2A from a small AAA battery while giving output similar to Trustfire XP-E F23 (sku.24291) with only 0,8A

    - Very difficult to open in case you want to mod it.

    - Short runtime on alkaline or NiMh AAA, approx. 25 min.

    - Beam artifacts, visible brighter and darker circles around the main throw.

    OtherThoughts:

    Although it appears more reliable than other cheap flashlights, I wouldn't want to carry it as my EDC. Less than half an hour of light with a fully charged NiMH is simply not enough in case of emergency.

    Bottomline:

    Buy it if you intend to carry spare batteries with you.
