Hm, I would have been a bit more interested if the light had a tailswitch. I see using this light as a duty light more than as a daily user. It does look very nice though.

I'm not adverse to the design of this light but it certainly isn't the best looking one in their line up. Side switches are a personal thing and I like them. The aesthetics aside I can't say I'm impressed by having a turbo of 860 and a high of 350 lumens. It seems to me that the large drop from turbo to high is too much and reduces what could of been a useful light into something for which I personally would now have less use. When you consider that the Nitecore EA4 (which can run quite happily on rechargeable batteries) runs at over 500 lumens on high then this light seems to be inferior. Of course it may be by the time it comes to market that they revise some of the levels but as it stands it won't be on my shopping list! :(

It is on my (to-buy)watch-list ;)

Have to agree that the tail-cap isn't the best looking one.

Would like to see the same stainless bezel as the one on the RC40. RC15 is the "little" brother of the RC40 imo.

Of course it's a rechargeable light, but only an hour runtime on turbo? That isn't much..

and hey! it can tail-stand :p

At least you can use any type of 18650 (right?).

Looks really nice, not many rechargeable light that uses an holder as charger.
