I have one.
My first “real”, dedicated LED lamp, actually… :bigsmile:
I got it on eBay for about $6-7, while the current price was the same as above (about $10-11)…
I gave bid more for fun than to win… but somehow I got it although I did not expect that.
Still I can only speak about my copy - because I hadn’t in my hands any other example, nor have I found on the internet usable reviews for comparison.
Thrower? Yes, certainly, if you call thrower something that has expressed (mild elliptically shaped) focus amid (otherwise pretty nice) circular shaped tender light.
But - does something belong to the thrower that has range of max 30m (100 feet) at best - on freshly charged 14500?
Nicely designed, certainly, at least in my opinion.
Shape and size is very comfortable in hand and in pocket.
Very suitable for cigar grip.
For me also a very pleasing appearance, overall, with a beautiful shade of black, more as anthracite.
Not too aggressive bezel, nice knurling.
White light, not blueish or greenish.
Finishing - very good, a few drops on a hard surface (concrete, stone) left no visible traces.
My example will tailstand.
No lanyard or lanyard hole.
Switch - very comfortable, neither too soft nor too hard, just as it should be - if you ask me.
But, single mode only… at least - no blinkies.
Plastic lens and reflector.
Vendor declared it as AA flashlight only, explicitly, after my specified query, but after I spent a couple of Eneloops on it, I decided to squeeze in a 14500 (generic blue Ultrafire) - and… test passed without consequences.
What more I can say about it?
It’s useful to have with you, for sure - it’s a flashlight after all.
For the price… you can easily buy something for less money with more performance. If you ask for the best bang for a buck… buy one of sipik clones, for example.
Certainly has some charm.
I would not call it “a piece of junk”, but it’s not something fabulous for sure.
