To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Pro's Well made, tough construction. Very bright on high with 1hr 30 min runtime. Turbo (700lm) is 15 min. Con's : Big deal for me ...No lock out function. Double press on both buttons, activates demo mode ( turns light off after 30 seconds. Double press again, goes back to standard mode. Double press on previous model would lock out all functions.
I took a star off because I thought it a bit cheap not to include a charging cable. I looked at all my stuff that needs charging and none of them used a USBC connector, so I had to buy one. That said it is a great light. Having a setting where it automatically switches off after 30 seconds is great for my keychain where I need the light to find the keyhole but spend a little time opening the door, so it switches off after I have done all that and relocked the door.
I've been looking for a decent EDC flashlight and this one is the best I've seen. It holds a 500mA battery good enough for EDC. The quick access for low or Turbo modes are very useful. I make my own flashlights, circuitry, programming and all for the different type of functions I need them to perform. That's why I haven't bought any flashlights, because I can make better ones. I usually modify every flashlight I get to make them better. The electronics functions that is. I don't know how to make the shell. It's all the functions I want already and the brightness is very usable already.
I may in the future reprogram it/replace electronics, so it will last double or triple the run time with the same battery. I see that the PWM could be controlled better for longer battery performance.
But for this price. It's perfect. Just not a real flashlight replacement.
Update: if turns on by itself in my pocket and when it's too hot. I can feel the burn on my thigh.
This is a nice little light. It’s very powerful, has multiple modes, and very light weight you don’t even feel it. The additional clip is a nice touch as well as the second even smaller light that comes with it. My only issues with it is the battery. I find it dead or nearly dead a lot more than I like. And I’m constantly charging it more than most flashlights I’ve had. And as a result of the power issues it’s not my primary carry flashlight but it’s still a very nice one to have as a back up.
This flashlight is bright. It's small, light, easy to carry and use by clipping onto the bib of a cap. I think it could be better if it had a C-type charging port with a rubber flap over it, giving it more resistance to water damage. Battery life is just ok, although I can't really complain about because of it's small size. But all this said, I still like it and recommend it because of it's small size and brightness.
This little gem is much brighter than anticipated. Happy with our purchase thus far, and hoping this little light will last a while. It’s a bonus that it is also rechargeable, as long as you have the right type of cable. If you don’t have a proper cable at home, you can pay a few extra dollars, and get a cord packed in with your light.
Bought this product on 12/27/20 and have really enjoyed the light !! My problem is the light started to have issues with the charging and the red light comes on when charging but when you removed it from th charger the red light stays on and will not turn off and the green fully charged light never came on after 12 hours of charging !!
My complaint is with the manufacturer !! I contacted nitecore and they want me to send the light back and for me to pay the shipping charges and they will either repair it or replace !!! In the mean time I’m out of a light and also out of money for the shipping charges !!
The flashlight is great! It is very small, but it will light up the entire backyard on its top 2 settings. I would have given it 5 stars but we ordered 2 lights and only one came with the Lumen Tac Keychain light! We did not get the second! They need to be more careful how they are packaged and shipped!
