If I am not wrong, is not a very good light. Some reports of contact problems...

However I dont own it. There are other better lights for use with 10440

you can't use protected 10440 with the TANK 007.. they're too long to fit

I absolutely love my tank! It's taken a beating in my pocket alongside my keys for over a year now. But it's starting to show flicker and contact problems. Prob an easy fix:)

I would get a Tank007 TK-703. It's my new EDC, replacing my ITP A3. The Tank is a very nice light and brighter than the ITP. I also have the Black Cat running on 10440 and it's not much to be desired.

I think the tank 701 is my favorite ... the ssc-U2 is floody and a pretty color . I have the older T as well and like the U better . little brighter too.. tanks rule.
