To me the worst light I have ever bought was the Arc AAA, I remember it and still makes my blood boil, it was very unreliable to put it nicely, I totally enjoyed destroying this light with extreme prejudice. :bigsmile:

Philosophical Question – When a dud light arrives should we be pleased or disappointed that if doesn’t work?

Just asking…….. Big Smile

The Nebo Blueline was one heck of a dud. When I got mine, the gunshops near me were selling them for $27.00!!!!

I got one and was so sad. Blue tint, not 130 lumens, maybe 30 lumens. Cheap piece of crap. A Sipik 68 is built so much better at 1/4th the price and is brighter.

Wow, that was the AAA cat’s meow back in the day, was that in 2000? 2002?

Not what we have but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.

Yeah it takes 2 AAA's and you have to continually press the clip in to get the 5mm purple tint emitter to light up . it's so bad you pull batteries immediately .Pretty bad when you don't want to waste 2 batteries.
