I needed a tough but very pocketable torch for work.
Saw this on Deal Extreme.
Really good reviews.
Very strong stainless steel construction.
"Cree" light emitter (Wow!!! Very powerful).
Works great on a single rechargeable AA.
Five modes - high (ouch!!), medium, low (useful as a reading type of light), strobe and SOS.
Will stand on it's end if you need a bit of light whilst camping etc.
Luminous Tail button so useful if you drop it in the dark whilst switched off.
Includes a lanyard to help prevent dropping it in the dark in the first place.
Some people may balk at the price but having received this today I am very impressed. I've used official maglite products in the past and this is in another league.
