Fenix Mini E05
Historic Range: $9.93
Light of Earindil
- no button operation (Twist)
The pros and cons say it mostly.
The beam is quite well dispersed (flood) though does penetrate (travel) well. Not saying that when you turn it on that you could turn around and see it as it hits you in the back, but it is really good for such a little flashlight.
Battteries (AAA x1) and very easy to use, even with the twist action which can usually be managed with one hand.
With the metal case I expect it to last for a really long time.
I have used it and keep it with/in tool kit with tools on my adventure backcountry dirt bike. Because it is so small it has been very handy when doing late night checks on the bike and because it is a flood it is nice to read with.
