    Super bright and compact

    Pros:
    This is one of the best little flashlights I've had. I got it because I wanted a 90º flashlight, and I liked the idea of something smaller than an AA flashlight. Since I already had some rechargeable C123a batteries I thought I'd try it out.
    Cons:
    There's not much wrong with this little flashlight, it gets hot when it's on in Hi mode for a while.

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

    Pros:
    The switch is a little hard to push that's the way I like it for an EDC blinding strobe, nice white beam color, clip is very handy on an angle light. Very light weight. like the green switch cover and matching green O rings. Good quality reflector, led in t...
    Cons:
    It had a tiny scratch on the body, screws for clip are loose. Would have been nice if the threads had some lube on them.having ...

    Very nice and compact small flashlight

    posted by DavidRIngham on 01/20/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The button at the top is more convenient than one at the bottom, as other budget flashlights usually have. Light output is very good for a light this size in both total output and pattern. The memory avoids going through high mode, if one usually uses it ...
    Cons:
    The tail cap current of around two amps is high, indicating limited run time. The threads are triangular, rather than the sligh...

    Pros:
    Works great with a CR123A cell. Super bright. Light and compact package. Build quality is excellent
    Cons:
    none so far. I imagine battery life will be dependant on quality and capacity of the lithium cells used

    Best small flashlight ever...

    posted by ZakMk on 08/20/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    One of the best flashlights I ever had. Got 2 of them on different times. Using both of them for more than a year and no problem. Has a great throw but unscrew the lens cap and you have a great flood light. Great to use on a table while you're rolling. Re...
    Cons:
    Low mode is "blinky". Trying to look at a fast rotating like pc fan or dremel tip is very fun. Battery life is short ...

    Best Flashlight Deal Ever

    posted by cah420 on 05/15/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very bright, it produces the advirtised lumens Very small, it really fits in the palm of your hand Seems to be good quality materials and workmanship. The fit is tight and smooth, no burrs or rough threads.
    Cons:
    I haven't found any real downside yet, but I guess the unit could heat up because of its small size. I haven't left it on long...

    Excellent Choice Clip Light

    posted by KevinDunn on 04/25/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I bought 3 of these and after testing for a few days, shipped them to Marine buddies over seas. Small, Lightweight, but solid construction. i was looking for a compact bright CREE clip light that would offer hands free use without adding bulk. I sent 3 mode...
    Cons:
    For US customers, this 16340 battery is an odd ball... but it recharges fast and the charger is only $6 on DX.

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

    Pros:
    Light is very small, it has not much weight and you can clip it easy to you sweater or to your jacket, but it is also small enough to put in you jeans! Light color is really white, and not blueish or yellowish. Batterys are nice and small.
    Cons:
    Light is empty very fast, can get a little warm (hot) You can loose it in a big toolbox! It uses a battery in 45 min. But these...

    Great quality product

    posted by AStrommen on 02/14/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Feels sturdy and solid, and has a bright white light. Better light that i would have expected from such a small flashlight. The 90 degree angle and the clip on the back makes it appliclable everywhere around the house, as well as in the garage or workshop.
    Cons:
    Not really a con; green button feels a bit less sturdy than the rest of the flashlight.
