    Stylish, high class look, and really worths what I paid for, easy to resell if you are a trader. Nothing, among about 20 of them I bought, only one is over-driven, 2.2A, I changed the driver board with a 1A one. few years ago I bought the first one, which drew more than 1.5A with full charged 14500, it burned out not long after I sold it. Now it draws ... Read more

    Really nice little light. Good build quality, feels nice in the hand and pocket. Works on single AA battery, which are easy to get. Switch is set really deep and is kinda stiff, which could be a con, yet it prevents accidental activation. Very good mode memory. Sits deep in the pocket, cause the clip is at almost very back tip of the flashlight. The ... Read more

    Sehr helle kleine Lampe mit guter Verarbeitung. In der Schalterstellung high ist die Ausleuchtung wirklich sehr hell, in der Schalterstellung low immer noch mehr als ausreichend hell um den Weg im Wald zu finden. Die Schalterstellung strobe habe ich noch nie in einer meiner Lampen verwendet. Eigentlich keine - die Schalterstellung strobe finde ich vollkommen ... Read more

    - no flickering (so far!) - price - runs also on normal AA batteries - looks better that expected - feels better that expected none so far.. but.. it could be always cheaper. I wonder if the flickering effect, known from other flashlights bought here, will also be noticable in this model. I'm not an expert, I've just bought this one after reading some ... Read more

    This has been a very good light. I carry it daily. It is waterproof. I proved this by leaving it in a pocket and washing it in the washing machine! It still works as new. Do not like the wire clip and removed it. I prefer a forward clicky; this light is a reverse clicky. Having said that, this light does not accidentally turn on in my pocket. Also, ... Read more

    Handy little flashlight. The main advantage of the flashlight is the use regular AA batteries - this was also the main reason why I chose this particular flashlight. As it uses 1 AA battery will never be the strongest flashlight. I would hope an even better light pattern, but then you will probably compromise on the size of the flashlight. It's okay ...

    Bright for its size, easy to use, very handy. I use it all the time at every place, the clip is also very handy for the pants pockets, or shirt's. Good for night fishing Get hot fast on high brightness, tail cap strip easy if not screw in carefully. Also tail cap button stuck once awhile. It would be nice if this is waterproof, haven't test it yet. ... Read more

    Sobre todo lo que mas me gusta de esta linterna es que lleva una pila normal AA, alumbra bastante y debe consumir poco pues aun no se ha gastado la primera que le puse. Trae una especie de pinza como los bolígrafos para colgarla y se puede quitar. El material se ve de buena calidad. Pues por poner algo, que a mi me parece que no alumbra tanto como ... Read more

    Always works, first time, every time, without having to shake, re-click the switch, or bang it against a table. Immediate bright light when I need it, subdued soft light when I don't, strobe so I can lash it to the front of my bike & instantly become about 1000% more visible. Uses 14500 rechargeables or AA's, albeit at a lesser light output, but ... Read more
