    Looks like it'll make a great cheap keychain light. Thanks for the review.

    Can you post some simple indoor and outdoor beamshots?

    Nice to see the Luxeon used there. Is the beam shape and tint consistency identical with the i3E EOS?

    white wall beam shot below:

    the beam shape is identical to i3E EOS, but as you can probably tell from the above, the tint is leaning towards slight greenish similar to the silver 120 lumens version, and it's also the brightest among them at high mode.
    the TIR optics diameter is identical to i3E EOS too.

    Looks like a nice light, but the thread on the body seems very short. I would be afraid about its long term durability.

    I'm no machinist... and honestly, I had the same worries too when I first saw that short thread... then when I compare the weakest point with other similar lights I have...

    I no longer carry that worry no more... and starts to enjoy using it...

    The instruction sheet shows that it gets 20 minutes on the high setting but the graph shows much lower runtime on high.
    Unless Iím reading it wrong?

    you are reading it right. It's a declining runtime curve and it's one of the thing that I have problem with ANSI/NEMA/PLATO-FL1 standard. They quote the runtime down to 10% of the brightest setting where sometimes they hit and sometimes they miss.
    oh... how I miss the good'ol day of the "tactical" runtime quote from SureFire...
