    Decent little flashlight

    posted by elmwood on 06/05/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    * Compact size. * Simple, professional-looking design, with no "x-treem tactical" milling. * 5 modes, with proper SOS (not SOSOSO). The medium and low settings will reduce battery consumption. * Neutral white light with clean beam. * Glass lens.
    Cons:
    * The threading doesn't seem as tight or smooth as other flashlights in the same price range. A little bit of oil makes it smo...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Little reliable

    posted by UserTM on 08/14/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Unfortunately, after about a month of broken LED (or electronic block switching). Now, in all five modes of operation is minimal and the brightness of the diode is similar to the low brightness mode. Works well on ordinary AA batteries, shines as the batter...
    Cons:
    Convenient belt clip. On the average, and low mode flashlight emits a squeak quite distinct. Rather strongly heated.

    Pros:
    Very nice torch.It is solid metal, well build, I have not tested for waterproofs but seals are tight and are everywhere - so should be water proof. The color of mine was a little bit ligher then on a picture. I started it with one AAA NiMH battery and it wo...
    Cons:
    5 modes are a little bit distorting and you can accidentally switch the mode instead of switching off (the on/off switch requir...
