5 of 5 Almost perfect EDC July 19, 2019
Reviewer: Hands Free from Somewhere, NC  
I needed an ultra small edc with a magnetic tail cap for my job. This little light exceeded all my expectations. The only thing missing for me is a micro usb charging port. Still the best little light that I could find on the market to fit my personal needs.

5 of 5 "Sir, did you shine your flashlight on a drone?" June 18, 2019
Reviewer: Kenneth YalljblinskyDrlop from Dennison, OH United States  
Just got it and only used it a half dozen times for 10 minutes or so each. I love it but being a greenhorn with FL technology i didn't realize how hot 1800 lumins got at from the LED. No big deal i have 3rd mode memorized and that's still plenty of light. I researched a FL with a magnet to use hands free and the EC30 was at the door quick time.

5 of 5 GET THIS FLASHLIGHT! March 3, 2019
Reviewer: Martin Wallace from Lexington, KY United States  
Are you kidding me right now? This is the light to have man. I've purchased and used both the Concept 1 and the ECS 2150. The Concept 1 sucks because it has a too-sensitive side-switch that always turns on in your pocket whether you're wearing the holster or not. The ECS 2150 is simply too big to fit in a pocket. Get the EC30! Turn it upside down when you put it in your front pant's pocket and you will always draw it out gunslinger-style with your little finger on the "ON" button. Works best if you remove the side slider that is meant to hook onto a jean pocket or belt. You can remove these two screws with a mini-screwdriver kit from HomeDepot = $5. Trust me, I paint cranes for a living. I know about a good inspection flashlight and this (with the included 3500mah battery and charger) is the absolute best VALUE you can ever find. This is it folks. It just doesn't get any better than this.That 3500mah battery lasts me all day. I could even go every-other day without charging it.
