Produces a very bright light, which can easily be controlled thanks to the 6 modes. The SOS mode would be very handy for anyone who might find themselves in remote locations at night. Great build quality, although see below.
Whilst the 6 modes are useful, the method of switching between them is a pain, and makes using this torch as a general purpose light frustrating. If you switch it off and on inside 20 seconds it switches modes. That is far too long, 1 or 2 seconds is more than enough especially given the fact that you can change modes by half depressing the button in under half a second. That simple change would drastically increase the usability. I also had a problem with the internal switch module coming unscrewed a little. This meant that slight knocks would cause the light to switch off for a fraction of a second ... and for it to change modes. Very very frustrating. Can be fixed by just screwing the switch module back in every now and again, perhaps a bit of thread lock wouldn't go amiss.
A potentially great little pocket LED torch let down by a couple of very easily fixed problems.
