  • NOT 5W - internally same as SKU# 2089

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

    Pros:

    Bright, very useful beam.

    Single AA battery lasts a long time.

    Compact size, easy pocket carry (except crown has rough edges).



    Good reverse clickie.



    Nice lanyard with keyring that separates using plastic clip.

    Cons:

    *NOT* even close to 5W.



    The rough crown bezel makes it hard to carry in pocket.



    It appears to be heavier than it is. Actually, the ends are thin metal similar to #2089, just raised detailing.



    LED color tinted blueish a bit.



    My three samples had diffused focus, poorly defined spot.

    OtherThoughts:

    Does not appear very bright until you need it in total darkness.



    Then, you'll appreciate the fact it can illuminate (although dimly - like a full moon) a large area enough to see clearly 10-20 ft.

    Bottomline:

    This appears to have the exact same internals as the SKU# 2089, which I consider to be one of the best bargains on DX.



    Unless you need the crown for self-defense, I prefer #2089 with the smooth crown... easier to carry in pocket.
