-Latest LED-technology in great package. -Great many variations availble (battery types, number of batteries..) -Great perfomance -Low price -Perfekt allround light.
-We miss the holster! -No own package/box, comes i a plastic bag. -I ordered 3, one of them have some problem with the switch, small glitch or something. I´ll probably solve this myself.
I´ve compared this with the Fenix L2D CE (a popular heads up it seems.. ;)) and beside the color of the light (blue from C3, yellow from L2D) they are pretty equal. Ofcourse the Fenix has a great advantage with it´s multiple modes, but that´s something you´ll have to pay twice as much for...
When it comes to output I dare to say that C3 (with 2xAA alkaline) performs equal to L2D on HIGH (not turbo). It´s hard to say exactly because the human eye reacts different with blue/yellow light, but for lighting up objects at medium range they both do great.
I also compared C3 with the popular VIPPA (1xAA luxeon) and although VIPPA performs really good for "it´s generation" ofcourse the C3 is far better, especially in medium/long distance.
A perfect buy for anyone who needs a versatile, yet "basic", light with really good performance. If you lack experience of LED lights - prepare to get chocked!
For anyone who still have such high thoughts about the common, overrated, 2xAA incandescent Maglite (for example) STOP THAT! This is 2007 - go get a CREE!! :)
