I bought one when they first came out. And wish I had purchased more. When they released them again, I was able to get 2 more. I would have purchased more. Design, construction and settings are the best in my opinion. I hope they make more in the future. Only drawback is they don’t use a standard battery. I’m sure if that were the case, the performance would suffer. If they ever make more, definitely get one.
This light is seriously bright. Construction is solid. I agree the button is too easy to press and if it gets put on high in your pocket it will burn cloth! In high or boost modes it will get very hot very fast (uncomfortable to hold around the front). Overall a very cool light. Impressively bright in a small package. Make sure you have good cells. I'm using VTC5 and VTC5A cells for now.
Myself included, as well as numerous others, have stated that this light easily turns ON in your pocket. The easiest way around that and to keep it from turning on in your pocket, is to simply SLIGHTLY unscrew the head of the light. Like literally a 1/10th of a full turn does the trick and solves that issue.
I occasionally forget it's like that, but for the most part, I've already grown accustomed to doing that, and now without any thinking involved, I screw it tight when I want to use it, and unscrew it a HAIR before it goes back into my pocket.
It's obviously not as good as the light being able to be locked with 3 clicks or having to double click the button to turn it on, however for the fraction of an inch you have to turn it so the button doesn't accidentally turn on the light in your pocket, it's super simple and not really an inconvenience at all 😉😎👍
Awesome flashlight, Great Quality, Great Deal. Good looks, ridiculously bright. Love the firmware settings: Double tap at any time for all 2500 lumens. Hold power from off for the amazing moonlight mode. Memory of last regular mode used when turned off. Only thing I'd ask for on the next one would be the lume gasket like on the AAA lights. Great light, great price, great deal.
