User Review: Black Diamond Spot
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $25
Battery runs down when not used.
- Very bright
- Small package
- Battery runs down when not used
- Not enough pivot settings
When I first got it I was very impressed with the amount of light from a small package, however I have since found 2 drawbacks.
First, the fixed positions when tilting are not in quite he right places for me — twice as many detents would be perfect.
Second, the batteries wear down quite a bit in storage. I got it, put new batteries in and used it briefly, then took it on a trip a few months later and it was not very bright and the battery indicator was red.
One of my favorite aspects of LED lights is how long the batteries last, and it takes away from that if most of the battery power drains off when it is off. (I understand that for the push button with a light touch to work or to have the infinite brightness settings, a small amount of power has to be running through the switch at all times.)
