Use it on men's retreat with church in Ocotillo Wells, CA. Only place big and dark enough to use it. Still have two working ones after a recent battery swap out. They are useful when going on night rides to see if a path down is too sketchy or not or checking out views in the mud hills. Anywhere else, my Nitecore E4K and Nitecore TM06s do well enough, but they don't have near the throw.
