I just got through checking it outside. It is not as bright as my 80 lumen Streamlight TLR-1, but it is not too bad for the price. The fact that it will run for 6 hours on 3 AAA batteries is a big plus. Most of my other small lights use 2 of the 123 batteries which everyone knows are rather expensive. I decided to get it to use for closing the pools where I live. I think for that purpose it will work just fine. It is however not as bright as the 115 lumens the package states. If my Surefire is truly 80 lumens, I would say this one would fall somewhere around 65-70. Another plus is the 2 colored led's. One is red and one is green. They are low output led's that will run for 50 hours according to the package. They could be useful in certain situations.
So far so good. I'm still on my first batteries. I think the light is working very well and convenient for it size. I use it mostly using the momentary on the tail cap. I did check out the AAA version. Looks nice too but seems big for what I wanted.
