Super bright pocket thrower.

Light and compact enough to be very handy, ridiculously bright, seems robust enough to use regularly. The build quality is excellent. The user interface is great. Anodizing couldn't be faulted. But for me it isn't perfect.

I dislike the micro USB charging port but love that it is rechargeable. That would be the only thing I would change if I were able to; the method of recharging. The micro USB plug gives me the irrits and doesn't instil confidence in its ability to maintain waterproofing. It is a bit fiddly and I've popped the plug open unintentionally a few times. But to be fair it could just be my handling method.

But guys, this is a genuinely over delivering torch. I have a range of brands for other torches from cheapy Led Lenser, to more Acebeam's to Sunwayman and Fenix. This torch is on par with the better brands in terms of quality of manufacturing and its output is outstanding.

If you're not sure about spending the dough then go back to looking at even more reviews on YouTube and second guessing yourself. Or just buy this thing and be amazed by it like I am. In my opinion it is worth every cent.
