Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Very light & small, can be put into pocket or purse.
- Build quality is better than other budget lights.
- LED is very well centered.
- Throw is a little wider than in most other small flashlights, so great for indoor use.
Cons:
- Very inefficient. Draws 2A from a small AAA battery while giving output similar to Trustfire XP-E F23 (sku.24291) with only 0,8A
- Very difficult to open in case you want to mod it.
- Short runtime on alkaline or NiMh AAA, approx. 25 min.
- Beam artifacts, visible brighter and darker circles around the main throw.
Other:
Although it appears more reliable than other cheap flashlights, I wouldn't want to carry it as my EDC. Less than half an hour of light with a fully charged NiMH is simply not enough in case of emergency.
Bottomline:
Buy it if you intend to carry spare batteries with you.
