A lot of bang for the buck!
November 6, 2014
I've been looking at Nitecore' for a while now, and when I saw this promo, I decided to pull-the-plug, so to speak. My initial expression about this brand is a very high-quality item, with great attention to ergonomics. All the controls are conveniently located, and operation is pretty much straight-forward. Unit is supplied with a decent holster for belt-ware, and the obligatory lanyard/o-ring/rubber tailcap parts. Nitecore's lumen ratings are a little over-stated by about 60, but this is insignificant to my purposes as an EDC light. Posted information about this light, and it's purchase on the 'tactical forum' that I frequent.
Pros:As stated above, great ergonomics. Torch is not too big, or too small. Easy carry on belt, jacket, shirt-pocket, or in mil-spec pants. Should work great as a 'weapons light' with the right mount. It's self-evident, the 'flashlight' is manufactured under high Q/C standards, and very easy to understand instructions. This would be a great tool for IT/Telephony technicians who often find themselves in dark closets, or where lighting is poor behind cabinets, and furniture. I have slightly larger hands, and the torch feels like it was custom-made, and delivers no 'hot-spots' when gripping it.
Cons:I felt the 'pocket clip' could be a little more stronger, other than that, no additional gripes, or qualms with this torch.
