What is so exceptional about it?

To me it seems rather expensive with a bit outdated LED

You could get something with an xml in it for that. And 100 lumens from an AA isn’t great. Zebralight got 250something from a single AA.

I was thinking of the 100m throw claim.

100 meters from 100 lumens with a reflector like that? Not going to happen. 30m at most.

Are you guys talking about .25lux at the 100 meters, then yes, I can definitely understand! Smile

If you want something around that price to reach 100m, look towards the zoomie range.
I don’t have the sipik 68, maybe someone else can chime in and confirm that it reaches 100m?

Link? Is it a full review? I’d like to see beamshots at lengths for this light, maybe a video. It seems like another nothing-special light to me.

I will take some beam shots of the pl1 tonight, only have my phone camera though so pics won’t be the best quality.

If you can, open up the tail cap and show the switch. I like the gradual taper allowing a slightly larger reflector but many AA lights have poor quality switches and for that kind of green you’d want to get top line parts throughout.

Beam shots on my phone were poor and not worth posting, will try get hold of a camera. Beam lights up a house 50m away well, by 100m its probably down to <5 lumens by that distance though.

It’s an LB… I don’t think it can be any good.
