  • Great but I like Zoomable better

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Lots of lumens for low price due to newer @ 2011 technology.
    5 modes useful.
    The 3rd low power mode is good for saving your battery over a weekend of reading in your tent.
    The strobe can draw attention right away and the sos may come in handy if stranded.
    Good centerweighted beam pattern.

    Cons:

    If you prefer flood to throw; zoomable lights, but with this power etc. they are available and should be here too; soon I expect.

    They also give one the choice to also use 3 AAA's
    Had I known I would have waited but this is a great light as is, so it does not hurt to have it as a spare. ( To go with all the other lights I have accumulated. LOL! )

    OtherThoughts:

    The centerweighting and power of this light help make up for it not having a zoom function.
    3AAA's are not superior to an 18650 but would be a nice option if camping and AAA's are all that are available.

    Bottomline:

    If your ok with only using 18650's and not a fan of Zoomable lights I don't think there is a much better standard light for this size or cost.
    5 modes should meet various needs you may have someday.
