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

Pros:
- Good build quality
- Its Tiny
- You can keep it on your belt all day without it getting in the way if you sit down
- Its Ideal if you want to strap it to your cycle helmet for an extra light
- Has a Glow in the dark clicky
Cons:
- The SOS mode is incorrect, its goes '. . . - - - - - -' spelling out SOO (instead of '. . . - - - . . .' which spells SOS)
- I was expecting slightly more light but for the size of it its pretty good
- It doesn't have memory mode
- apart from the highest setting of light, the lower settings are pretty useless as they are very dim.
Other:
Bottomline:
For its size, its pretty good, on the highest setting of light it has a good throw. Its well built but don't rely on it if you need help as it does not say SOS but 'SOO'
