Looks nice.I just bought a NEBO light at a thrift store.$10 bucks,defense bezel,uses 1 AA and stays o for a few hours straight.Love it.
I have given them as gifts to several people and they have all loved them as well. It's a great light and I highly recommend it!

I looked for one at my local target but they've been sold out for a while so last weekend while i was out of town, I found a target store and picked one up. Nice light and I'm happy with it.
Thanks for the info!
Saw this 15.00 light in Target yesterday and remembered reading about it here so I bought one, like the pocket clip. But what I really wanted to mention was the cool keychain light I noticed hanging beside it by Energizer that I also bought. I have a little Swiss-Tech keychain light I picked up for 4.97 at Lowes but the Energizer for 6.47 is twice the light, plus has high, low and a strobe function.

I purchased 2 of these from Target for each set of my keys and can say that even though they are only rated at about 45-lumens, it seems to be about 75-80% as bright as my other pocket light which is rated at 200 lumens. For $15 this is an excellent value. Works fine with rechargeable batteries too. God Bless
I have an Olight T10 and it is suppose to be rated at 200+ lumens, and I shined this $15 Energizer light purchased from Target next to it and I can honestly say that the Energizer light is about 75-80% as bright as the Olight T10. From the specs on Energizer's sight, they rate this $15 light at only 45 lumens. So either:
1. The Olight is over rated
2. The Engergizer light is underrated
Do not get me wrong, the Olight is very bright for a single C123 battery light, but for $15 I say try this Energizer light out. I hope this helps. God Bless
Just wanted to chime in and say that I have two of these and love them. They are a great size, super bright, have a lanyard and clip (and allows you to clip onto the bill of your hat if you wish), and best of all they are a good price. Another benefit is that they take one AA, so I keep a rechargeable AA in it, when it dies I have another rechargeable AA I can replace it with (and then charge the other one up again). Plus, if it ever dies when I'm out of town it's pretty easy and cheap to get a AA battery.
I also have an Inova X5 (takes a CR123) and it is comparable in brightness, and build quality is the same (metal, solid).
so, six months later, and I still love this little light.
Its much more beaten up, but I'm glad I've steered others to a nice little bargain light
I'll let you know, I carried mine for about 3 years and the regulator circuit failed. I called Energizer to find out where I could buy a new one, and they sent me a shipping label and instructions on how to send mine back to them for free repair or replacement! On a beat to crap $20 light. That's some great customer service.
just sent it off to Energizer today in fact. They say to give them 4 weeks to get it or its replacement back to me.
I've enjoyed that little Energizer light also, but while recently shopping in Target I noticed this for 21.99 and had to buy it- Energizer 130 lumens high intensity LED flashlight- http://www.energizerlightingproducts.../EMHIL21E.aspx
This light is awesome!
