Better than the more expensive Buckle Light – Black Cat HM-01 HA-II OSRAM 100-Lumen LED Flashlight - Red (1*AAA) Reviews

Pros:
Great price and very bright for a single aaa flashlight. I bought the buckle light last year sku.12849 and liked that light. But hated the twisty switch. This has a clicky. It's also slightly brighter than that one.
Cons:
The beam is pretty "ringy" but it doesn't bother me too much. It has a nice center beam that goes at least 50 feet and a very nice flood as well.
Other:
Some people criticized the look as toy like. that's probably true, but it does feel pretty solid. Don't know if it's water proof. Tail cap fits tight and has an o-ring.
Bottomline:
I'm glad I bought it, and will now carry this one instead of the buckle light. It is slightly longer, but still pretty darn small. Lots of power in a tiny package. I will be recommending these to a friend that is looking to buy flashlights as Christmas presents.
