Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week
+amazingly bright from a small package - good size hot spot and decent spill - very useable light
+small, lightweight- perfect EDC
+nice machining and solid build
+thick threads - square threads are nice and should be super strong
+fits protected cells (a little tight squeeze width wise though)
+orings in all the right places - double orings in main body
+thin wire clip - perfect for hanging out of a pocket, nice contour for perfect cigar grip
+GITD orings and tailcap cover (fully recessed for tail standing if desired)
-gets HOT after only 5 minutes on Hi
-no mode memory - turns on in the next mode but resets to Hi if left for a few seconds
-otherwise very minor cons considering this is one awesome little light including bone dry orings and threads, small clicky button, dust on inside of glass
This flashlight has a reverse clicky. The light output is comparable to bigger 18650 cell flashlights slightly dimmer but remember this comes in a compact form.
Comes shipped from DX wrapped in half popped bubble wrap. Come on DX, at this price you couldn't pop it a cardboard box.
Output measured at tailcap with single RCR123A/16340 - Hi 1.5A, Mid 0.6A, Low 0.2A
Perfect for every day carry. Small and very bright with multimodes to conserve power or call for help. Nothing fancy, just an unassuming looking flashlight you can stick in your pocket and not even know its there until you need it.
