Thread: Flik it

  1. #1

    Default Flik it

    Here is a link to an unusual light.
    I think I would want a glow strip on it if I dropped it in the dark. (You'll have to look to find out why.)

    I have the LS:1, and it's a pretty decent light, though it's more a novelty item or a art piece than it is a tool I'd use day-in and day-out. I haven't tried the 3W version, though if the optics are anything like the 1W, it'll have a small spot and almost no spill and mediocre throw.

    But it was my first Luxeon light, so I have a soft spot in my heart for it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Stays by the desk, it does... though it's hell to polish back to its original color.

    I have an original Fliklite, but it is apparently defective - it needs to be "flicked" an awful lot before it turns on.
    I have a web page about it right here if you're still interested.

    There's also a review on the torchreviews.net site as well, though that's the 1W version which was released last year. As I said, it's a neat concept (like the Orb's neat) but the throw isn't really there, nor is the spill. It's a great light for spotlighting things, however.

    Personally, I kinda like the Orb's concept more than the Flik, right now - the whole modularity aspect's something that appeals to me, and the Ti body you can get for one of those sounds neat if not necessarily useful. But the Flik's still got a home on my desk as a 'just in case' light, and I always make sure to keep it with a set of batteries in the barrel.

    It's just my Quantum III is the current EDC, due to its smaller size and better spill. It will probably get a companion light and be relegated to 'close in/backup' light status in a week or two though. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
