This light has 3 main levels (High, Medium, and Low) and a beacon-strobe mode. Each main level can be programmed to one of its two sub-levels. The second sub-level of each main levels can be further programmed to different brightness levels.

  • Basic Operation
    • One short-click turns on the light to High or turns off the light.
    • Two short-click turns on the light to Medium.
    • Three short-click turns on the light to the beacon-strobe mode.
    • Press and hold (for over 0.6 seconds) turns on the light to Low and then Medium and High. Release at the desired level.
  • Advanced Operation and Configuration
    • Press and hold to cycle from Low, Medium and High, release at the desired level to set. When press and hold, the light always cycle from Low to High regardless which level you are currently in.
    • Double click to toggle and select between the two sub-levels for that main level. Sub-level selections for the 3 main levels are memorized after the light is turned off and through battery changes.
    • The second sub-level (H2, M2 and L2) of each main levels can be further programmed to different brightness levels. At a main level, double-click 6 times to start configuration. On subsequent double-clicks the light will cycle through different brightness levels. Short click to turn off the light when finishing configurations. The selections for the second sub-levels are memorized after the light is turned off and through battery changes.
    • This light uses the main LED (flashing 1 to 4 times) to indicate the estimated remaining capacity of the battery. To start the battery indicator, (from Off) short-click 4 times without pause.
    • Beacon-strobe mode can be accessed from 3 short-clicks when the light is Off. Once in the beacon-strobe mode, you can double-click to cycle through different types of beacons and strobes. Beacon-strobe settings are memorized when the light is turned off and through battery changes.

Really Nifty
Been years since I have been a flashlight enthusiast. Researched it and thought it sounded pretty neat especially that it takes a single NIMH AA. Well, I got it and I am impressed. The beam color is perfect as it shows the colors of the objects lit to my eyes just like daylight. I am not a fan of cool light that changes the look of things illuminated. This beam color and pattern is excellent for my EDC needs. Brightness is impressive. Very happy with it. Well-engineered and designed product.

Best 1xAA flashlight!
Just about perfect! I always liked my SC52w, but now that I can match the output with an AA Eneloop is fantastic! Slightly brighter than my SC52w (Li-Ion 14500) and the beam is about the same too. The (orange peel) reflector didn't seem to do much, but I think it's a perfect beam. Compared to the SC52, I think it's too fat to EDC in a pocket comfortably unless you have baggy pants with big pockets. Great neutral tint!
