We know when you try to remove the Pill.
Brilliant flashlight, light weight, compact size, good brightness and good build quality. Have ordered 2 more.
I like twist lights for their simplicity and smaller size, and this light is no exception. The build quality and brightness is good. I recommend users apply some graphite to the threads (rub a pencil tip on the threads) for smoother turning.
I would be happier with the light if it had some changes.
1. I prefer high-CRI led. Cool or warm tint does not matter.
2. I don't think three modes is necessary. A low and high would be preferable.
The beam profile could be tweaked a bit in my opinion. A more continuously diffused center spot would be ideal for a smaller light like this. For the 10-20 feet range, the strong/distinct spot is distracting.
Overall, I would recommend this light to people who like twist lights.
Lovely beam colour and balance between throw and spread.
Threads ok once you lube them (nyogel).
Tiny gripe: the bezel has a green glow liner that lends a tiny green tint to the beam edges- waste of time and less pretty. I still like it very much and carry it a lot.
I really like this light! It’s lightweight especially if you use lithium batteries. This light isn’t a primary light to shine down a hundred yards but is perfect for a personal light to light up a small room. I use it as an inspection light above drop ceilings and dark closets to find power panels. I’m guessing it’s around 50-70 lumens. It’s good for EDC because it’s short as well. It can lay across the bottom of your pockets and not be uncomfortable. Pocket clip rotated on the light easily but seems to be pretty secure so far.
Turns out this little light has a smoother thread than I should have expected from published reviews. Even though I usually enjoy momentary switches, I can easily and promptly turn it on and progress to full brightness with only the twist control.
This light feels good to hold and stands steady with its diffuser on.
I will enjoy carrying this small lightweight torch.
