+ Built in Afterburner Glow too!
OK, so this light won't put out an utterly blinding 5-mile beam - it's not supposed to. What it WILL do is light up a tent, or a room, more than adequately enough to see what you're doing, read a book, etc. The strobe feature is a bonus that might just save your life some day.
I love the promised 35 hours of run time on the low setting; this is helping me standardize on AA batteries for all my EDC and emergency gear.
When I ordered the Domed Strobe AA flashlight I had no intention of it replacing my regular EDC light, yet each day as I prepare to leave the house this is the light I find myself clipping to my pocket. The combination of light diffusion and actual product size put this little beast in a class all its own. Aside from some of the offerings by Nitecore there really is nothing to compare it to and even those fall woefully short. For the money there is nothing even close in quality that I've found. Just buy it, you won't regret it.
This thing is bright. I originally wanted to get the older one that was powered by a d or c cell but I am glad that I got this one. It is more than bright enough to light my immediate area and the strobe is definitely an attention grabber.
I wish I could give this more than 5 stars. It's stellar! Bright and long lasting. I use it a lot at work when I'm working in tight spaces. Seriously awesome. If they added a magnetic tail it would make this great light even better.
