i got this last time it dropped and was pretty disappointed. the beam is not very bright and the modes arent easy to switch between. Its rather expensive for an underwhelming flashlight,. Youre paying for this dude's CNC machine
Which version? I find both the higher-lumens modes on my copper quite bright. This is no tactical or wilderness flashlight, but it easily beats those clock battery LED lights for EDC pocket carry. There's a certain aestethic elegance and physical slimness to having no buttons and no dangling clips on a detached light, but I agree it's not an optimal design for practical usability. The quick-release usually requires two hands to operate and prefers a big keyring to fit a thumb inside, or you need to lift the light to make the keyring horizontal, exposing the QR button.
Whether or not the beam is bright depends on the environment you use it in. The reflector is very small and the light that comes out of it is very floody. It not good for long distance. The light is more than enough in the city where the space isn't very open. Last week there was a big black out in my neighborhood and the flashlight's low output was more than adequate to get me around. The modes are very easy to switch two hands but one will take getting used to.
