Product Description

If you think the concept of multi-tasking is overrated, don't tell it to the guys who developed the patent-pending Recon. Because this long-awaited L.E.D format lets you choose from four different colors of light, depending on your needs of the moment.

The official name for this proprietary technology is D.I.A.L., which stands for Diode Illumination Adjustable Lens. Basically, this new design lets you dial in the color that'll serve you best: White for general situations, red for preserving night vision, blue for identifying fluids, and green for map reading.

It's all powered by one AA battery you can anticipate long battery life which come with the Recon. It weighs just 73.7 grams. Yet it delivers a military ton of task-specific light, right when you need it.

There are no product dimensions with the gerber recon ad..so I think the 1st thing to mention is that this is a tiny little torch!. It runs on one AA battery (which is a good thing-easily replacable), however, the torch itself is not much bigger than the battery. This is not a critisism - its a handy, tough lttle torch of almost entirely metal construction. It feels pretty idestructable,and is easily pocket sized. Also, the advertised 100 hour battery life seems genuine. The white led is the brightest setting, and throws a moderately bright beam out to about 10ft - the other colours are more for discreet close up area lighting..handy for moving around with, when you dont want others to know you are there (should such a situation ever arise?). I imagine police officers, security guards or soldiers, might find these discreet light settings useful. ALL in all..a tough compact little torch, that gives out a moderate amount of light for a very long time. 4 stars.

The light offers about 4 lumens of light and runs on a single "AA" size battery. The flashlight is very small, not much larger than the AA battery that powers it. I have used it almost every day for over 6 months and the battery appears to last for about 40 hours. I tested this by turning it on and allowing the battery to run down, it took almost 2 days (based on a Duracell Extra AA). The white light is for general use, with a range of about 15 meters. The red light is quite dull and does not interfere with night vision, it's good for writing up notes in a car. The green light is for map reading. The blue light shows up fluids more easily. It's made from metal so it will survive bumps that would damage or crack a plastic light. The metal clip is a bit flimsy, but there is a hole in the tail cap that can be used to attach a cable-tie to, to strap it to body armor to hold it in place.

This torch is compact but built to the highest standards and very easy to use. Another plus is the battery life as we haven't changed from the original AA even after daily use. The torch fits easily in a pocket and even with the single LED is easily capable of showing the way after dark. The different colours are useful and seem to give different light strengths or that may be more to do with the eyes sensitivity to light at different wavelengths. We were so impressed with this compact torch that we intend to buy another. It would be ideal for camping, keeping in the car or just reading in bed! The red light is very relaxing for reading or seeing although whether it improves night vision will probably depend on how dark it really is. If you are looking for a good, reliable and small torch this is highly recommended and the additional colour outputs prove surprisingly useful once you start to experiment and move away form the normal white light. If you are looking to really light up the darkness you'll need something bigger that goes through more batteries much faster but to see where your feet are going, this is fine.

This is a tiny little wonder. It's not the brightest torch in the world, but it'll do - it's about as bright as most mobile phone torches. It's very small, taking a single AA battery. If you run it from an alkaline (boo environment) it'll last for a very long time.

I would recommend this for astronomy people because it's one of the few torches that comes in dual white/red modes. The only other torch I'm aware of is made by Energizer or perhaps Duracell and only in the US. The red beam is suitably dim for night work. It's not super bright like a bike light or a headtorch, it's obviously designed for covert operations. I had no problem reading charts and setting up equipment using only the red light.

As for blue and green, well supposedly these are useful for map reading (green) and fluid identification (blue). The idea is that blood (obviously red) will heavily absorb blue light and will appear black if you're using it to track something at night. I haven't tested either, but presumably it's useful if you're in the armed forces. Ideally you'd want UV for testing materials, but the torch uses transmission filters rather than separate LEDs and you can't magically generate UV light (in any meaningful quantity) from a white LED.

The housing is sturdy and the filter wheel has a reassuring click and won't budge unless you put some effort in. There is a notch to line up the red beam, not the white one, to preserve your night vision if using in the dark. The clip is sturdy, but not built into the torch so it could slip off conceivably. The filters are recessed and seem hard enough; if you drop the torch you're not going to break them unless you drop it on a spike.

My one gripe is the on/off mechanism.

Good little torch - and I emphasize the 'little'. The product dimensions given at the time of buying are completely wrong. The Torch measures 3.6" X 1.14". It weighs 2.6 oz in use.
