Nah, seriously it's a 3 cell version with one of those storage containers. Twist the extension for on/off instead of the tailcap.
I actually bought to use on an ML150LR but ended up liking it on the ML25.
I go for the Double Cheese and Fires at McDonalds, $3 deal. But I appreciate a $7 burger when I buy one.I go to Burger King doc. But I see your point.
As I get older I get more inclined to stick with what I know product-wise. Yet as quickly as things change these days there are times I cannot due to that product being no longer made.
My car key for example is this battery operated thing that opens like a switchblade knife most of the time and reveals a twig that feels like it's going to break off in the ignition switch at any moment when starting the vehicle.
Gone from the dashboard is a clock that has been replaced with a computer screen. If I mess around and press the wrong button the car talks to me demanding I enter a command then does not understand the command to "shut the front door".
At least with a Maglite product I get a traditional flashlight that looks and acts like a traditional flashlight with the option of changing some stuff.
I'll take the $3 burger any day.
