Interesting Fenix e01/Coast Mini alternative

I just got this:

http://www.amazon.com/Garrity-Aluminum-Keychain-Flashlight-A100G/dp/B000...

and it's pretty decent. It has an aspherical lens in the front to focus the nichia die. Big Smile

Twist on/off and reasonably solid build. Head is kind big. You don't find a lot of nichia lights for this price. Even DX sold the nichia fauxtons for $2.50 before they sold out. Draw 0.14A from both alkaline and nihm I tried. It's not really brighter than the fauxtons, but probably lasts forever on AAA's, where forever is defined as 6 hrs or so.

It's ok, but my micromag is a whole lot smaller and a WHOLE lot brighter! Silly The runtime is a whole lot smaller though. Sad   LOL.

Neat looking little light though. I wouldn't mind having one.

I just got one last week from Coast for $3.50 and it was a keychain but a badass keychain model G5 this thing is no joke I saw them at Sears for $9.99 so $3.50 is a deal.

It's nichia 5mm, like the other and DD in this  case, so maybe 5-10 depending on state of batteries.

It is rated at 18lumens it's only 3.50 go to the website and do the questionnaire and they send you the light for shipping cost only $3.50.

I also did the survey on Coast's website and paid $3.50.

I was expecting a G5 like E1320 received, but was plesantly suprised when I received the G10 in the mail! 18 lumens for 2.5 hours on one AAA! To long for my keychain, so I'll probably be giving it to my mother. A very great deal for $3.50! Beats the cheap chinese ones!
