So I got one of these from the last drop.
It's pretty cool. My concern with this light is whether it improves over using just using a headlamp for hands-free operation. The answer for me is that this is much more compact, and much more reasonable to EDC than a headlamp. It's actually pretty tiny.
I was lamenting the lack of a base magnet before, but after getting it, and thinking about the pros and cons, I think it's actually a good idea not to have a magnet on the base.
Because if you stick it in your pocket, there's some danger of messing up the magnetic stripe of any credit cards that may be nearby. And it will stick to stuff in your pocket, which is pretty inconvenient and annoying.
I'm not missing a magnet on this.
The one gripe I have about lights with lenses is that there's often a off-putting chromatic shift around the edges of the light circle. It's not so apparent on the high setting. But as the light is dimmer, you can really see it. This is something I notice in a number of my flashlights that have lenses on them.
Also, there some risk of the lens getting scratched up if carried in the pocket (without a microfiber pouch), as the lens is unprotected by a lip.
Otherwise, it's a good little hands-free flashlight.
