Temporary or disposable light--not for the long haul.

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, MN Written on January 22, 2014
Light is EZ on batteries, small, light, tough casing.

I have used it for five months. The clip deformed the first few months and I had to break out my tools to re-bend it. The clip attachment is also poorly designed. I can see the pocket clip failing within the first year. Not too good for being pampered in a pocket.

The switch is also problematic--sometimes requiring an excessive amount of force to get beyond the momentary and "on". Momentary is good. Same issue trying to switch "off"--excessive force needed. Or you need to hit it just off center with a fingertip only--not easy when wearing gloves or holding with hand and activating with thumb.

Buy something else.
Pros: Small, light, bright
Cons: Poor switch and clip...
Would recommend: No

Simple and Effective

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on January 23, 2012
This is a good little product. The price is not to bad for the effectiveness of the light but would like to see a little more directed beam brightness out of it. I had this item for about a week was working an event. The power went out and having this handy enabled me to immediately provide lighting for safety and exit of the area. I would and have recommended this light. I also gave them to both of my kids for use. The love them and use them for flashlight tag and when we went cave exploring recently along the central coast.
Pros: compact, easy,
Cons: could be a little brighter...
Would recommend: Yes
