Wanted an EDC flashlight and thought about getting one from Surefire or Fenix, but the ones that are really popular were really expensive. Products like the Surefire Titan or 6P were at least 80-200 bux.
Saw a review over on YouTube and decided to get one. It’s the awesome Maratac AAA Electro Polished Stainless, here’s the video review by chanderson1.
it comes in a cute red tube case :
and this is what’s inside :
It’s small as hell! just slightly larger than a AAA battery. the light is also very bright on the highest setting.
The only quirky thing is to turn it on, you twist the cap, to select between the three brightness modes, you twist off and on quickly. It also doesn’t hold the previous setting, so it keeps rotating to the next setting, meaning if you turned it off when it’s brightest, the next time you turn it on, it’ll be on lowest, so you’ll have to twist the cap twice to get it back to the brightest setting.
here are the brightness settings :
Medium Mode, 18lm Output for 4 Hours
Low Mode, 1.5lm Output for 50 Hours
High Mode, 62lm Output for 48 Minutes
Now I have a bright light in my pocket and I don’t even feel it. 🙂
