I think a lot of anduril features can be considered toys (some are intentionally that way, like lightning mode, but that's all optional stuff you can just ignore), however the basic interface is also I think one of the best for EDC: you can easily set your 'memorised' (one click on) mode, rather than relying on automatic mode memory, which I really hate. You can also program what you want as turbo (double click), and what you want as 'low' (long click from off). That gives you immediate access to lows, mediums and highs (even if that's ~130 lumens), which you can all specify. For me this was far and away the most convenient basic EDC UI, until I discovered the zebralight UI -- they both have pros and cons, but overall I enjoy Zebra more.From all I can tell, this anduril thing, along with this light, needs to be looked at in the realm of a toy. Instead of a serious lighting tool. Whatever that means. With all these modes and options, it's more for someone to play around with. And go ooh…ahhhh turning on turbo for a few seconds at a time. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I am not in any type of search and rescue. Law-enforcement. Firefighting. None of that. I just like lights. And being able to see when I go for a walk at night. And I'm sure this light could do OK at that. Not very efficiently because it's so floody, but it could work. And for only $20, I guess why not give One a shot. I'm waiting for red. If this is going to be a toy, I want it in a nice color. Bright orange would be best though.
I also used to really enjoy the way you could set 5, 10, 15 minute etc light off timers before bed, saved me from looking at my phone screen so much. I miss that and the aux lights most.
Edit: Generally though even as an experienced user I sometimes made mistakes, so agree with lots of other people that it's not appropriate for any kind of high stakes use. Same for zebra actually, I still sometimes accidentally strobe myself.
