I was originally going to do a full review of this, but there are so many high quality reviews in the CPF community I didn't think I could add to it. I will say one thing that has not been said enough..........If you don't have the patience to learn the programming, then don't get this flashlight. It is literally the most complex User Interface of any flashlight in the world. That being said, if you do learn it, then this flashlight becomes awesome. I love this thing, it is very cool, durable, everything I want it to be. Look up the durability tests on YouTube.
If you want a flashlight that is completely programmable and can do anything and everything you want it to, then this is your flashlight. The only thing I don't like about it is that the strobe can't be activated by a quick button press. In my opinion the only reason for a strobe is tactical, which means I want it fast.
Here is how I set up my flashlight........Orange Peel.Head tightened:
Turbo only 500 LmHead loosened:
(Mode memory disabled)
O.1 Lm 100 days
100 Lm 8 hours
Beacon (100 LM flash every 7 seconds for 30 days)
SOS (350 Lm SOS flash for 3.5 hours)Edit: Just an open invitation. If you have trouble with this light, then feel free to PM me and I have no problem with helping you out with the UI and programming what you want.
