    Modest, but nice.

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

    Pros:
    Works, but it's sensitive to batteries that's not fully charged. The lights is not constant with those kind of batts. Good size.
    Cons:
    NOT AS ADVERTISED! Not 260 lumens, a 160 lumes torch with bad batteries outperformes it by far! At the best its 50-90 lumens....

    Powerful little package

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

    Pros:
    This light is super bright for an unbelievably small size. Very good clicky switch which has 100% on, flashing strobe, and dimmed on positions as you cycle through. Very well made case with a small flaw noted below.
    Cons:
    This light has one small (critical) flaw. The electrical current is supposed to ground through the annodized case to make the ...
