Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month
Very tough built, quite big for a 1 AA light. Sturdy clip, rather smooth knurling. Runs brightly with both alkaline and NiMH (draws around 2 A from a NiMH and around 1,5 A from an alkaline). Flood-to Throw slider with just the right amount of friction to allow one-handed operation still holding the focus well. Deeply recessed clicky, tailstands firmly.
Some artifacts in Flood due to irregularities in the lens, but not noticeable far from a white wall.
Not water resistant.
Confirm as mentioned before by darkmilk NO heatsink paste beneath the emitter base (therefore build quality 3)! Though the emitter is pressed to the pill by a retaining plastic ring I agree it's a good idea to add some before extended use.
I'd prefer a forward clicky in 1-mode lights.
Clearly recommended as long as you are willing to add some heatsink past/glue and don't need it to work in wet conditions.
