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

Pros:
- very bright
- allows use with primary and rechargeable AA's and 14500 rechargeable Li-Ions
- flood to zoom capability
- compact and light enough for EDC
- good quality and build
- has a detacheable carrying clip
Cons:
- price could be lower
- not waterproof
- the sliding mechanism and endcap needs lubrication
- clicky switch is stiff and a bit difficult to activate
- lens is plastic and prone to scratching
Other:
This is an excellent flashlight for everyday carry. It is quite versatile as it allows use with 1.2V rechargeable NiMHs and 1.5V alkalines and 14500 Li-Ion rechargeable batteries and has flood to zoom capability. Build is ok but lubrication on the sliding mechanism and threads is needed. It uses a plastic plano convex lens that is prone to scratching but is also good as it won't break from falls. Overall a good EDC flashlight.
Bottomline:
I will order more for myself and my girlfriend and will recommend this to friends.
