Very Bright/Short Battery Life – Black Cat HM-01 HA-II OSRAM 100-Lumen LED Flashlight - Red (1*AAA) Reviews

Pros:
This is an extremely bright AAA light. Brightest I've ever seen. Shines as bright as lights much bigger. Good quality construction from what I can tell. O-rings, decent clicky, etc.
Cons:
Battery life is bad, but I guess that is a trade off for the bright light. I'd say after about a half hour you're done. Better hurry to get a fresh battery or it will die quickly.
Other:
The markings are weird. Says "Black Cat" on a red light. Must mean something to someone.
Bottomline:
For the price, it's a good buy. But because of the short battery life I wouldn't depend on it too much.
