    Pros: 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. Cons: 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 flas... Read more

    Pros: 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. Cons: Pues por poner algo, que a mi me parece que n... Read more

    Pros: 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... Read more

    Pros: - Compact - Quite bright on AA and 14500 with nice spill and wide spot for everyday use at home and short distance. - Mode memory - Glowing in the dark green switch and oring in reflector (cool!) Cons: - Poor coating - Poor threads - Poor orings - Poor clip (very loose) - Rather not waterproof (didn't dare to check) - Cyan/greenish tint -... Read more

    Pros: Excellent build quality and everything feels as though this is a high quality torch. The button works well and it's 3 stage lighting profile is excellent. IT remembers where you were last time you used it ans starts on that profile. The brightness on full is excellent given its size. Well worth the price. Cons: There are none that I have.... Read more

    Pros: • Memory returns to last mode used when turned on again • Uses AA or 14500 batteries • Solid casing • 3 modes (Bright, Mid and Strobe) Cons: • Of the 6 bought so far, 1 has contact issues when screwed tight. I have to back off a 1/4 turn or else it won't turn on • Typical mediocre QC from lights this cheap • Clip can not be removed O... Read more

    Pros: - Good looking design - As small as it gets - Takes a single standard AA battery - Comes with a lanyard - Seems waterproof Cons: - Sharp metal edges in the LED side - I wonder how good will the rubberized power switch get old OtherThoughts: I haven't emptied a single battery yet, other reviewers mention shot times. Fortunately it is easy... Read more

    Pros: Excellent pocket light, it has been my edc for almost a year now. Having stupidly worn sweat pants to the store last night, I realized that it must have fallen out of the shallow, slippery pocket. I have quite a few other lights, mostly from DX, but tonight, only 27 hours from losing this one, I am re-ordering this one. Why? What's not to... Read more

    Pros: With 14500 battery absolutely amazing brightness. Battery life is also quite reasonable. With normal AA battery not so bright but bright enough for most of purposes. Some users have criticized that you have to press on-off switch too hard but I like it. It won't switch on by itself in pocket(like some of my previous lights have). Still yo... Read more
