Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month
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.
If you prefer flood to throw; zoomable lights, but with this power etc. they are available and should be here too; soon I expect. (written 2011 09-23) 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! )
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.
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.
