Pros:
Excellent outer finish Clip appears strong Good usable beam Does not get warm
Cons:
In my opinion the power switch is too hard to operate.
Other:
On my unit the power switch seems to be semi-defective. Sometime just touching the power button slightly the LED flickers and sometimes the intensity goes down also. I can live with it as touching it again makes the light steady and bright again. I took the light apart to check the interior build quiality. The driver board seems of good quality and all solders are clean. I have only tested with 1.2V NiMh and 1.5V alkaline batteries.
Bottomline:
All in all a no-nonsense simple light that does the job.
