Rated5out of5byjwittfromPerfect small light!I'm buying a replacement today, and this model is so good I thought I'd write a review.
NOTE: I recently replaced the battery in my current light. Less than a month after replacing it, the battery leaked and is now stuck in the light. I've tried mild acids, overnight soaks, etc, but I need to drill it out. (The light still works after the things I've done by the way). To prevent this, I learned that one can apply a thin layer of silicone grease to the inside walls of the tube. The battery I used was a quality name brand cell- it must have been defective. I'm going to learn a bit more about batteries to see if I can find an option that won't leak. When I get around to fixing my current one, I'll probably stash it for backup in my hygenie kit or overnight bag (with battery seperate since it won't get used often).
On to the light- it's lightweight, practically indestructable, and as bright as you can get with a single AA. The pocket clip is durable and suitable for a pants pocket or breast pocket of a field jacket or similar. As a bonus, I've clipped it to the bill of a baseball cap when I didn't have my headlamp handy.
Before my battery incident, this light survived plenty of rough treatment, being submerged in water, temperature extremes, etc. I prefer a light without a push-button switch- there's nothing to leak or break, nothing to accidentally activate, etc.
I only wish they made a nice bright red light in this same design, and possibly a couple more case colors. High-vis orange would be a good option.

Rated5out of5byOrygunRoxxfromTough reliable small flashlightI bought one of these for my wife, a nurse's aide, for use in darkened rooms. I was so impressed I bought one for myself. A well designed, well-made product, it doesn't get better than this.
