After 8 months or so with this light do you find yourself carrying it much? I enjoy a light that breaks out of the typical cylinder design, wondering if you’ve found specific use scenarios where the shape and beam orientation have been beneficial. Thanks for any info. I see these on sale and am still on the fence.

Hum, truth be said, I don’t carry it much nowadays because I am using it mostly as an headlamp, and I don’t need to use headlamps so often!
However, some weeks ago I used it as headlamp to fix some electrical things here at home (general power was turned OFF), and it was quite handy, floody beam, no artifacts and no shifts on the beam (after I put the XP-L Leds).

Also, when using with gloves, having the possibility to access (by double click or triple click on the side switch) a memorized level and/or a preset level is quite good on this light. Triple click for lumens is a setting I use quite often Wink

And actually, this last weekend I missed it while I was working outside my parents home and needed my hands free to work; I didn’t have it with me, otherwise I would just clip it in my shirt’s pocket or in my belt (or even use it as headlamp, although I didn’t need a directed light). Instead I had to use my “neck light” the RovyVon Aurora A8U with the side White LED

It’s shape and UI are definitely a plus for me. And that is one of the main reasons this light still stands out for me! Sometimes I’m afraid to carry it more because it is one of my most expensive lights Oops

I must also mention that the “silver” version stands out really well in the middle of so many black lights I have Silly

I hope this helps in your decision, but don’t blame me for some money spending Cash

I used a coupon code to get the Nichia version, and I like it a lot, except for the misaligned charging port that makes it somewhat difficult to plug in the charging cord. The only reason I haven’t yet carried the light is that I have had to cut the weight I carry on my commute to a minimum, due to arthritis issues. I will probably carry it in a jacket pocket at times, when the weather cools a bit here. I’m sure this light will also be very helpful at home in various tasks, power failures, etc.

Thanks for the info MascaratumB and NortherHarrier!
Not a typical light but it has a wide range of output so could be useful in many situations.
Illumn has a Labor Day sale going on and I’ve still got a few hours to think about it.
