Pros:
Well it's certainly BRIGHT.
If there was a problem with some people getting an inferior emitter, *I* didn't get one.
Head and tailsprings together- neat!
Threads are fairly smooth.
Cons:
I wish it were the absolute minimum size, but it's a bit larger. Well, exactly the dimensions shown though. And this is one of the smallest single 18650 lights you'll find anyways.
I don't like these crenulated "tactical" heads", which is just about everything nowadays. They hurt my hand reaching for it in my pocket. And what, and you actually supposed to defeat an attacker with this??
No idea why there's a strobe or SOS mode... has anyone EVER needed one of these?
Other:
Bottomline:
It's a buy!
