Best ... Flashlight ... Ever
This is my new favorite flashlight!
The low is exceptionally low, even lower than my Quark "X" AA˛. The control ring is effective throughout its entire range, except for the last few degrees. It turns smoothly with very little effort. In fact, it turns so easily I'm a little concerned it might move inadvertently.
Even with a AA battery, the maximum light output is way more than sufficient for my needs.
I don't know why I like a low low so much, but I know I am not alone. When LED flashlights first came out, they were all pretty low (and blue). Nowadays, it is not uncommon to see lights advertised with 1,000 lumens or more, but you can't use that to walk around the house with dark-adapted eyes.
I also have a Peak Eiger AAA with the QTC continuously variable interface. It's a pretty close second favorite, but the twist ring UI of the V11R is just a bit nicer.
Light Emitting Diode: A third less calories than a regular Emitting Diode.
The V11R control ring uses a much thinner lubricant than the ring on the V10R, so it turns much easier. This means it's possible to adjust the brightness with a single finger, but it's also a little more likely to change the brightness setting while in your pocket.I have a V11R, but the adjustment ring is loose. Is there a way to tighten it up? It seems like there is some type of grease lubricant behind the ring. Is it possible for enough to come out to loosen the entire ring?o, I'll be changing the lubrication on my V11R HCRI, per some suggestions in some other threads on the subject.
