thanks man. i guess the handle helps out a lot with usability?
The handle is indeed a very useful feature.
I frequently need to use both hands while using the light. OK I could use a headlight, but with the handle I can just hang the EYE30 from my little finger while picking something else up with the same hand.
It also acts as further heat-sinking, as with the EYE30 running on maximum it gets quite warm, and you can feel the handle also getting warm near the head of the light.
For the last couple of weeks I have had the handle attached and this is probably going to be its permanent configuration.
