Great all-around light
May 20, 2014
I got this light a couple of years ago as one of my first modern LED flashlights. Compared to some other 4x AA lights out there nowadays, it does show its age a bit; however, it certainly gets the job done. I see this as a great utility light: it's too big to carry casually as you go about your day (EDC), and it's not quite bright enough or throws far enough for when you need a seriously powerful light. I'd say it's somewhere in-between. This light would work well around the house, in a tool bag, or out camping. The build quality is high and I see it as overall being worth the price.
Pros:+ I prefer neutral-white tints as they generally render color better and are easier on the eyes.
+ There is NO strobe mode!
+ Uses common AA batteries (I use Sanyo Eneloops - do yourself a favor and don't put alkaline batteries in pricey electronics due to the potential to leak).
Cons:- This would be a good light for those new to high-powered LED lights, but the mode switching has some learning curve. A dedicated mode switching button would work better than the single forward-clicky.
