Nicely finished Pleasant beam
CONS
Threads a bit loose
This thing really is small - if you carry it loose it almost disappears in your hand and is difficult to operate one-handed. The finish is an attractive metallic blue, there are o-rings where they need to be - around the lens, between head and body - BUT the threads are perhaps a bit loose here and to be sure of switching off the head must be unscrewed quite a bit, and the o-ring here is almost exposed (it is possible the battery tube is a bit too long here). The information on the packaging is quite clear that this is for AAA or NiMH only - a 10440 Li-ion cannot be used. Note that in spite of the space for one, it does not come with a battery - probably to make shipping easier

PROS
Attractive design and finish Dismantles completely if required Tailcap lock-out available
CONS
Large for a single AA
Seems very well made for the price, glass lens and metal reflector, no o-rings missing, anodised threads at both ends of battery tube to allow lockout. I replaced the tailcap switch cover, the existing one didn’t seem to have a long enough post in it to easily touch the switch, it now has a much better feel. Cover is the common 14mm diameter, it and the switch itself are accessed by removing the ring at the end of the tailcap. Although the head is a separate part, the lens, reflector and led pill are removed forward after unscrewing the bezel. Pill looks like brass, led is on a 14mm board. Positive contact is a spring, presumably a flat-top 14500 would work – a Nitecore NL147 protected 14500 will fit. Overall it seems nicely finished, colour is an attractive metallic grey with the contrasting bezel and tailcap ring. Slight criticisms could be that the knurling doesn’t add much to the grip, the absence of a clip and it is a bit long for a single AA light.
