    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Very good output for a AA only battery. Excellent user interface, no sill flash modes. It's very small for a clicky, not quite as small as Nitecore EZ AA, but in the same ballpark.

    Cons:

    The clip extends over the end of the tail cap preventing a true tail stand. You can fudge it by setting it on the edge of a table so that the clip hangs over the edge. It will basically stand upright on a flat surface (a little crooked and wobbly) even with the clip protrusion.

    OtherThoughts:

    Tons of light from a AA cell. The beam is very floody, so this will not throw very far. Great for indoor use. I think it's more splash proof than water proof, the clicky rattles and a little air leaks through on a "blow test".

    Bottomline:

    Great emitter but the execution is a little wonky. At 12 dollars I would buy 10, at 20...i will just keep the one I have. I might remove the clip and drill some holes for a lanyard.
