Excellent little AA pocket light. It takes standard AA 1.2-1.5 volts or my favorites, the 14500 3.7 volt batteries, but it's still pretty bright even with AA batteries. Compares in brightness to my $30 XENO E03 rated at 430 OTF (Out the Front) lumens, even though this one is lesser at 350lms it's...
Excellent little AA pocket light. It takes standard AA 1.2-1.5 volts or my favorites, the 14500 3.7 volt batteries, but it's still pretty bright even with AA batteries. Compares in brightness to my $30 XENO E03 rated at 430 OTF (Out the Front) lumens, even though this one is lesser at 350lms it's still very bright with a great wide beam that lights a good sized area but is less floody than the XENO so it has further throw. I've taken this out to the forest and it shines several hundred feet and lights up a great area. I have not tested the run time yet but so far I'm on my first 14500 battery and I play with it and use it every day for the past week or so since I got it. Changes mode with a half press of the clicky switch which feels pretty solid and should last a long time. Nice size, feels good in the hand and the strike bezel sticks out just enough to strike with but is easy to hide in your hand. It had DOUBLE O-ring seals on the end cap so it should be very waterproof and probably dunk proof too. My XENO is rated to 30 feet water resistance with it's double O-ring seals. This is the only other AA light I've seen that also has double O-Ring seals, but I'm not going to test it underwater to find out. Inside lens is a bit dirty. It's one piece and I'm not able to get at it to clean it without really taking it apart and I don't want to risk messing it up, so I'll leave it as it's not too bad. Only other thing that would probably bother some people would be the six modes. You have to scroll through all of them to get to the setting you want, but that's common with these small AA lights. I know many prefer just 3 modes of High, Medium and Low which is one reason I got my XENO E03 light as it has no strobe or SOS. Well made, great EDC light, bright enough for any use, while the dimmest mode is great for walking around at night without waking someone up, using in a movie theater or such even with a 14500 battery. Great light. I was not sure if it would actually be 350lms and while I've not tested it with an integrated sphere, comparing it to my XENO and other lights it seems to be about right as it's very bright with great throw, great battery run time so far and it has a good low mode too. Highly recommended
