  • Simple, but excellent light

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    + nice beam (tight hotspot, lots of spill, almost no artifacts)
    + long runtime, good brightness
    + perfect for alkaline batteries
    + simple to operate ;)

    Cons:

    - tight battery tube. Eneloops and Sanyo 2100 are fitting nicely, Sanyo 2500 don´t.
    - construction of switch: don´t disassemble the tailcap unless needed ;)...

    OtherThoughts:

    It´s surprisingly bright for its power level: Current draw from fresh alkaline batteries is ~800 mA, from NiMHs 750 mA, so the LED runs at approximately 1.5 watts.

    Bottomline:

    Simple, but good light. Perfectly suited for "non-flashaholics" too. I gave already one away as a gift ...
