Comments

I bought this for in the tent, or under the tarp, when out camping. Functionally, it's typical Nitecore ie built well, feels solid.

Simple to use, just turn the light on and off in under 2 seconds to change brightness. I thing the Beacon mode is pretty useless, but it doesn't cost extra, so what the hell.

It feels like the turning mechanism is goings to last a good while. It's not plasticy or weak feeling. Time will tell.

Brightness is great, with a decent run time for a one AA torch.

Glad I bought it, I may buy one for the car in the future. The magnet in the base seems like it'd come in very handy to attach it under the bonnet for hands free operation.

I'd like to see a solid wire hanger of some sort. The lanyard is functional, but it swings around with the breeze.

All in all though, I can see this coming on every trip.
