  • Great small light

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Small size - great for emergency light while traveling/camping

    Can use CR123 lithium battery for maximum brightness

    Can also use AA battery, available *everywhere*, when CR123 happens to run out of power.

    Cons:

    Case not anodized - scratches easily

    OtherThoughts:

    I bought this for 'emergency use' to carry while long distance riding on motorcycle. Lithium battery (CR123) can handle extreme hot/cold better than alkaline, and have long shelf life. If I should need replacement battery while traveling, AA batteries are available everywhere.

    I had plenty of light to do minor motorcycle repair ( headlight bulb ) in restaurant parking lot, well after sundown, and to find black leather glove dropped elsewhere in the same dimly lit parking lot.

    Bottomline:

    I purchased only one of these. After using it, I'm back for more. Great value.
