    Nice little flashlight

    posted by thopoulsen on 12/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Handy little flashlight. The main advantage of the flashlight is the use regular AA batteries - this was also the main reason why I chose this particular flashlight.
    Cons:
    As it uses 1 AA battery will never be the strongest flashlight. I would hope an even better light pattern, but then you will pr...

    Buena linterna para su precio

    posted by rpcinsanity on 11/19/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Sobre todo lo que mas me gusta de esta linterna es que lleva una pila normal AA, alumbra bastante y debe consumir poco pues aun no se ha gastado la primera que le puse. Trae una especie de pinza como los bolígrafos para colgarla y se puede quitar. El m...
    Cons:
    Pues por poner algo, que a mi me parece que no alumbra tanto como dice en la descripción, tengo otra linterna que en teor&...

    One of the best flashlights I've ever owned

    posted by triggerjerk on 08/28/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Always works, first time, every time, without having to shake, re-click the switch, or bang it against a table. Immediate bright light when I need it, subdued soft light when I don't, strobe so I can lash it to the front of my bike & instantly become ab...
    Cons:
    I wish it were less expensive, then I would own one for each pair of pants and shorts I own. I dunno, maybe an embedded gps ch...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Excellent build quality and everything feels as though this is a high quality torch. The button works well and it's 3 stage lighting profile is excellent. IT remembers where you were last time you used it ans starts on that profile. The brightness on full i...

    There are none that I have.

    Excellent small light

    posted by triggerjerk on 02/06/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Excellent pocket light, it has been my edc for almost a year now. Having stupidly worn sweat pants to the store last night, I realized that it must have fallen out of the shallow, slippery pocket. I have quite a few other lights, mostly from DX, but tonight...
    Cons:
    Doesn't contain a cigar lighter or clip, or a fork and spoon, or magnifying glass. No...wait...This is a POCKET LIGHT, nothin...

    Good light

    posted by Saguu on 01/10/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    With 14500 battery absolutely amazing brightness. Battery life is also quite reasonable. With normal AA battery not so bright but bright enough for most of purposes. Some users have criticized that you have to press on-off switch too hard but I like it. It...
    Cons:
    Not actually anything. Maybe there could be a model with 2 batteries :) I wouldn't mind if flashlight would be a bit longer. Bu...
