Small Light Bright One mode Nice modern look
CONS
No ring or clip A low mode would be useful
This is certainly one of the smallest and brightest single AAA flashlight available today. It is barely larger then the battery inside and does throw a surprisingly bright light. The beam is well balanced to my taste with the throw reaching quite far away. FT sells cheaper AAA flashlights that are good deals for the price, but if you want to spend a bit more you really get a great keyring flashlight with this one. I already ordered five more to gift friends. Only con is it does not include a ring, a lanyard or a carabiner clip so you'll have to figure something to hang it to your keyring for instance. What i did is reuse parts of a dead keyring led - the flat plastic kind you bye by packs of ten. Overall a very nice flashlight i recommend.

Cheap Small and light Easy to use
CONS
Capacity is 250g and not 500g Quite small depending on usage
This is a very nice little digital scale for the price. It's small enough to fit in a pocket and come with a protective pouch. Very easy to use. My big disappointment is the max capacity that happens to be 250g rather then the advertised 500g. I was also expecting something a big bigger for what i need. This scale is barely larger then a flat pack of cigarette.

Price Bright Well made Several modes Lanyard
CONS
To many modes No memory
This is a very good flashlight for the price. The XML emitter seems to be rather well driven and does throw a very bright light when on hi. The size although not small is comfortable to handle. The beam shows a very focused hot spot in the center surrounded by a halo. I wish the transition was smoother. I don't like much the five modes since you often have to cycle through them to find the one that suits you. The strobe and SOS modes could be 'hidden' since you probably will not ever use them - at list you hope. Overall a very good buy.

Fair price Compact Bright Well made
CONS
Only one mode Battery rattles a bit inside
For about ten euro this is a very good flashlight. It is rather small for the light it produces. Well made and simple to operate with just on/off modes. However it tends to get hot rather quickly and a mid or low mode would be very welcome when you don't need the full power. Considering it's an XML2 it could throw a bit more light which makes me believe it is under driven and could be modded with another driver to get more out of the emitter.

Small Decent capacity Nice looking
CONS
USB cable may not plug properly Black finish not very strong
I love these automatic 510-X batteries (and atomizers). They are just a bit bigger then a real cigarette and will fit nicely in a shirt pocket. I'm using two of them with the assorted 510-X clearomizers and they will last long enough for an evening for instance - much longer then a basic 510 battery. Although the bottom 'diamond' that lights up in red when inhaling may look a bit cheesy, i do like it too. Not all USB cables will fit though. I had to try several before i found one that plugs into this battery. Overall, if you are looking for something small to go out (and look good) this is a very good choice.
