Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week
-Excellent fit and finish of the metal parts. -Output appears to be close to the 900 lumens claimed, although I don't have a way to measure it accurately. -Fits perfectly in my hand - a good size, good heft. -Blindingly bright. -5-way clickie switch works well. -Brightness levels are useful. Low for general use, medium when you're working on something and need more light, high when you want to show off, blind an intruder, etc. etc. -Will tail stand on a smooth surface slightly precariously. On high it lights up a room quite well! -5-way switch starts out on Med > Low > High > Strobe > SOS (true SOS)
-Tail cap is somewhat easy to cross-thread when putting it back on, just be careful. -2 thin o-rings on the body on the rear threads. Again, be careful putting the tail cap back on. -Not a super thrower, but I prefer a slightly diffuse beam anyway - can use as a bicycle headlight or to light up a large spot in your back yard.
I don't have a way to measure lumens, but I did measure current draw. Using fresh 4.2V cell: Medium = 1.00A, Low = 0.34A, High = 2.84A, or 4.2W, 1.4W, and 11.9W power input, respectively! Using 3.75V partially discharged cell: Medium = 0.67A, Low = 0.23A, High = 1.90A. Low power is brighter than my brightest "1W" flashlight.
Very pleased with this torch. Can't wait to try it on my bike at night. Seems to fit well in SKU 08274 bike mount.
