Pros:
i bought this as a upgrade from my MTE SSC-P4 42180 AA light. the size and shape is very similar. the high mode on this one is way brighter. the medium seems just a bit brighter, but the MTE has more spill. so i compared the runtime on these levels. the MTE was dimming at 1:40, and the K-106 was still going strong until 2:40. huge difference in runtime.
Cons:
like the reviewer below said, it is actually SOSOSO... and not SOS, but in an emergency i think people would understand it. the only real con i can see is that the metal wire clip might break easily?
Other:
the glow in the dark o-rings are cool. the one in the front will automatically glow from just turning on the light.
Bottomline:
excellent light. i havent even tried 14500 batteries since i dont have any, but using a AA it seems incredibly bright to me.
