Good But Not As Good As Its Energiser Equivalent! :-(
on 16 March 2016
I bought this as it was on a 'lightning deal' offer and believe that the 'full price' is a tad too expensive for a product like this. Anyhow the product arrived promptly and well packaged as ever from Amazon. I have had an similar Energiser one attached to my keyring for years and thus, that is what I am comparing it with.
The first thing I noticed is that the brightness of this is no where near as bright as the Energiser one, which I found highly disappointing! Yes this one has a few different modes and these are a nice addition to my former one. As other reviewers have mentioned, it can get a little tedious to whizz through the different modes to turn the thing off.
I mainly wanted this as a keyring addition (to replace my Energiser one) but appreciate that this one can used for many applications such as on a ruck sack zip etc (as the packaging this suggests). Having said that and for the purpose that I bought if for, I much prefer my old (now back in service) Energiser one, if not for the annoying 'mode' shuffles then definitely and simply for the huge difference in the brightness level.
To sum up, if you are wanting to buy this for for such applications as the zip attachment then my advice would be to buy this. If however you simply want this as a keyring addition for that odd occasion when you need a little light, then I am sorry but I cannot recommend this, take a look at the Energiser one and go for that, thats my advice.
