To sum up, I believe that the most important part of any review is if given the chance to purchase the same light for my own EDC, would I still purchase it?
For this light, it is a YES. Specially if you are looking for a budget friendly complete tactical light with complete functions.
Scrutinizing the light over throughout the review, I am hard pressed to find any flaws at this price point. If I were to nit-pick, it would be that it turns really
hot on TURBO after the 2 minute mark that you can barely hold it, perhaps because I am located in a tropical country though.
As with all gears, two is one and one is none.
Light on brothers!
