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

Pros:
Pretty bright for its size IF you use a RCR123 battery
nice and compact light, fits well in a pocket
twisty design allows it to tailstand well
Cons:
mine is VERY dim with cr123 3.0 volt primaries
pill is mostly plastic, not good for heat dissipation
Other:
If you have 3.6 volt rcr123 batteries this light works well.
I read in the forum that this light has a boost driver and should work well with 3.0 volt batteries, but mine does not, maybe I got a bad one, but mine only woks well with 3.6 volts
Bottomline:
Overall a pretty good light, I am not crazy about the plastic pill and the fact it is very dim on primaries, but not bad for the money
