  • I love this little light

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    Small, lightweight, very bright for its size, cheap, sits low in the pocket, has a clip, can handle rechargeable CR123A (3.7V) without any problems. Clip is easily removable too.

    Cons:

    Nicks in the finish. LED is not user removable (as far as I know) so I can't get to the inside of the glass to clean it. Took a while getting here. Clip is not reversible, so it can't be worn on a hat easily. Twist to turn on (might be an advantage for some). No low power mode.

    OtherThoughts:

    Very bright for it's size. I compared it to my Surefire 6P with a Superbright Q5 in it (purchased locally) and the Surefire's definitely brighter, but this little 1 x CR123A light will make a very nice little backup light.

    Bottomline:

    Great (and cheap) alternative to the Surefire E1B ;) Definitely doesn't have all the features the Surefire does, but you could have 7 or 8 Romisens for the price of one E1B.
