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

Pros:
-Extra small and bright with cr123a -Very small and pretty bright with normal AA -Very tight spot beam and little spill -Easy to use and switch between different modes -Always turns on full power and then you can switch to mid or strobe. -Very good and strong belt clip
Cons:
Only con for this light is reverse clicky button. It would be nice to have forward clicky. Build quality in not so impressive, but good enough for this price.
Other:
Bottomline:
This is very good light for every day carry. It was much smaller than I imagined. It is brighter than my led lenser hocus focus. For maximum brightness use cr123a but AA is just a little bit dimmer. Clicky button is easy to use and it is positioned so deep that you wont turn this lamp on by accident. Mid power is usefull to make batteries last longer. Strobe mode is just fun but not so usefull. I will buy couple of more for myself and for my friends.
