Re: Panther Vision Flateye Flashlight

Hey guys, found out about interesting light. Price pretty steep and drawback is it eats CR123A like hot cakes.

Very late post …I have no idea about the guts but I love the ergonomics and the nod to cooling.

4*CR132 gives you less energy than a single 18650.
No toolless battery replacement.
Very small optics for the overall size.
And what size is it exactly? I fail to see the dimensions. It looks quite large for 4*CR132 though not terribly large.
Fins? Come on, there are not that many. And they would get nice airflow through those verical fins….if only they didn’t block the air path with optics.
Very deep bezel cuts down flood. I wonder if they picked a right lens that would make it work reasonably efficiently. Likely no.

Overall…I’m not impressed.
