  • Compact Lighting System

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

    Pros:

    Impeccable quality of housing (very few compromises - see cons).

    Very compact size for 18 650.

    Full use of the LED and battery capacity - current close to the limit for the LED, but does not overload the battery.

    Silicone cap on the switch is pressed against a single aluminum washer to the body, steel assault crown can be removed without loss of containment.

    The last flashlight came with an unusual light - the smooth decrease of brightness from the center to the perimeter - there is no hotspot.

    Very inexpensive and functional flashlight.

    Cons:

    The trade-off between reliability and size:

    1. No springs minus contact - instead contact the disc. A concern, but made qualitatively.

    2. The switch from small-size flashlight - in housing diameter 18 can put something more substantial.

    No memory mode. What is it? In the presence of current stabilizer is now no reason - the cost of reprogramming the controller or its replacement the same, but the memory is very small.

    OtherThoughts:

    The best flashlight in its class (budget 18 650 EDC).

    There is instability in the parameters of the reflector - a flashlight with a wide hotspot, and the second with a perfect smooth shading. Both the flashlight without artifacts, despite the stained lens LEDs (for both flashlights).

    No clips. Use of tear gas canister bag with two loops - for the army and the civilian belt. This clip is better - less risk of losing a flashlight (a knife with a clip already lost).

    Bottomline:

    Shining brightly, long runs, a relatively small, inexpensive and reliable 18 650 EDC. Buying blindly, but very pleased.

    The perfect light.
