Good solid construction although it is a bit large in the hand.  Length is fine it is just wide bodied and heavy.


Very bright however and excellent light focus.   Even though it uses four (4) 18650 batteries, it does not have a super long life due to the amount of power the thing puts out.  I recommend having a back up set handy if used for long continuous periods.  Otherwise it is a great light.   I keep one in my truck at all times instead of a huge spotlight now.


7 out of 10 stars due to weight, low battery performance in full power mode

**  This flashlight is the best most rugged flashlight in a compact size I have ever owned!   I cannot recommend this flashlight enough!


In fact I now own 7 or 8 of them.  Not one single failure in 3.5 years to date.  Bright is not even close to the word for this light..  it will turn your night to day.


10 out of 10 stars without hesitation!

Good solid construction and very lightweight.  I am always surprised at how it charges itself even in low light conditions.   Very lightweight as well plus it is waterproof and floats!


It has a decent light output for something powered off a solar cell or the two backup 3025 watch batteries.   The button allows you to select power from the solar cell or separate from the 3025 batteries.  It does NOT charge those kind of batteries.   I keep one of these in each of my kits as a backup emergency light.


9 out of 10 stars due to backup batteries not being some kind of rechargeable type.

CONS:


  • Would like to see a design that has rechargeable battery capability not just the solar cell recharge, maybe CR2 or CR 132a batteries.
  • Not really a major issue just a thought..  Must carry extra 3025 batteries if you want to use the backup power mode.. does not require them to function in solar cell mode but if that goes dry, you have to switch to battery backup mode which is dependent on two 3025 batteries.
