Excellent ProductI purchased this flashlight for a number of reasons, one of the more important was that I just wanted to see how much flashlight you could get for this much money. I already owned a Surefire product which commands this sort of price but was curious to see what the advancing technology could offer. I have not been disappointed. Firstly, this is a well machined, finely detailed device which belies its Chinese ancestry. Be aware that it is very bright but is a floodlight and not a spotlight; a test pattern reveals that its brightest area is a doughnut shaped ring with maximum intensity about 5 degrees off-center. If you want a bright spotlight to blind animals, get an MX3 Triton (comment made in light of Mr. Baumgardner's review). This light has a thread mount for a camera tripod and would be unbeatable with a camera tripod to illuminate a nighttime tire changing scene. I like the dimensions as it makes for an easily gripped outside diameter without the overly long profile of the MX3. It is not a lightweight and would not be appropriate to carry backpacking.The one pound weight described is without batteries. I use it with the rechargeable 18640 batteries and find the internal recharging circuit a plus. The car charging adapter was not included with my shipment; this is not important to me but might be to others. It has an automatic thermal shutoff at 60 degrees centigrade which all of these high power lights should include; I had one fail previously and have concluded that it was thermal fusion of the internal circuits. I've not had this one trip yet. The instruction sheet is clearly written and easy to follow. This is important because of the techniques required to place it in a safe, storage mode and to activate the Turbo power mode. Also unique in my experience is an internal battery voltage monitoring system to alert the owner to the state of charge of the batteries. If you've got the money, this instrument would be a go.
FlashlightBrightest flashlight around. Glad I bought it.
Nitecore LED FlashlightOne of Nitecore's brightest LED flashlights with over 2450 lumens, it outperforms the rest and turns night into daylight. Bright enough to deter some wild animals, I have found. One of the brightest LED flashlights in the world at this time, it uses CR123 batteries or rechargeable Lithium batteries.
