A very nice little light for the price. The CREE bulb is very bright on full power. The one thing I don't like is that the first click turns on the low setting first, then off. Then medium, then off. Then bright. So it takes five clicks to get to the bright setting. I'd rather the bright was the first (or only) setting.
Once the capacitor in the switch fully charges it remembers the last setting you used. So if you turn it off from high then wait some time (maybe ~10 seconds) it will go straight to high next time
Edit: Sorry, just realised it doesn't remember the last setting, but rather goes back to low after a while. I.e. If you switch it off at medium and wait a bit, it will go back to low rather than to high.
You sure about that? Mine does not remember the last setting.
Just tested again, my mistake sorry. When I tested I found it went low - off (wait ~10sec) - low so I mistakenly assumed it was the same with other settings.
This has not been my experience. I can leave it 10 secs or 10 minutes and it always starts over at the dim setting.
