Let me just start w/ I really love this flashlight.
I think it's great that I can get a high CRI emitter on something I can hang off my keychain. Literally the coiled spring quick release is the best system in this situation. I actually think I can get away w/ a AA or even two AAAs side by side and have it still comfortably fit in my pocket, bag, or anywhere else I'd want to hang or carry it.
The copper ones are great because over time they can patina and have a distinct look formed by your personal use.
One grip I have, and it's interesting that it happens the most on the copper unit with 3 settings is that sometimes it gets stuck on. it's left me on a few occasions where the battery was literally running while hanging out in my pocket. Fortunately it gets warm and I notice warmth in my pocket first before it gets to the point where it's capacity is zilched.
In a way, the maglite design is a little better because when you tighten it down, it turns off. For the Beta QRs, when you tighten down, it turns on. Completely opposite behavior.
How much was the Prometheus light on Massdrop? Thank You.
