Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Actually brighter than advertised. I am running a 14500 battery, no overheating so far, but I haven't used it continuously for more than 5 minutes at a time. Best setting for the "focus" is wide; it will really illuminate an entire room.
Cons:
None serious On the "tight" focus/zoom, the LED chip is clearly projected on the wall or surface of what you aim at.
Other:
I wish it had a remote switch: great for a gun light. In an unfocused mode, this would be great for emergency work on your car, boat, camper, etc.
Bottomline:
I need 2 more So far it's the best inexpensive light I own.
