Inova X1 Focused LED
- Product Review (submitted on January 27, 2008):
I'm somewhat of a flashlight fetishist. I've got a box full of various miniature flashlights I've accumulated over the years. (Particularly since LED technology started emerging... I don't expect my collecting habits to change any time soon, as LEDs get better and brighter.)
This flashlight is ELEGANT! As the previous reviewer said, it's very adequately bright, for lighting the trail, or doing camp work, or finding your stash in your night-darkened tent. It's got a nice, solid feel to it. And - it operates on one AA-size battery! (This flashlight is supposed to run full-brightness for 10 hours on that one battery... not too shabby.) You twist the tail-end of it to turn it on, or it has a rubber-covered push button on the very back, for momentary on/off.
The only improvement I can imagine is if they would design the case so it doesn't roll. (Placed on a flat but non-level surface, it rolls merrily away.) But that's quite nit-picky.
I'd recommend this flashlight; I expect to be a satisfied user for many, many years. (I gave it 4 stars out of 5.)
