Small, Cheap, Simple – Mini Pen Style 100LM 1-LED White Light Flashlight (1 x AAA) Reviews

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

Pros:
Very slim AAA light, nice design and smooth attractive finish. Alloy construction gives some strength. Its bright enough for finding your way about (upto ~20feet) in the dark or rooting for keys in your bag, and small enough to keep in the pocket.
Cons:
Not 100lumens, more like 10lumens. Build quality is low, but so is the price. eg: the threads are very fine, and could be stripped if over-tightened or after sustained use. The switch in the tail is not centered. The pocket clip has some spring but will stay bent if pulled. There are no seals so not waterproof.
Other:
The tail switch protrudes so is easy to operate but could be activated inadvertently if packed in a bag... Though it has enough resistance not to easily be activated in a pocket. There is no attachment possible for a keying, although it would be an ideal size.
Bottomline:
Nice looking and simple little light for when you need just a little light.
