Say, hypothetically, you recently purchased a fancy pants flashlight, commonly advertised as “indestructible,” only to have it crap out on you after a month of gentle use. Rather than exchanging it for another, you decide to do a straight return and shop around for something else. Preferably something with an LED, and small.
Do you look for a flashlight that uses 123A batteries for increased brightness, or AA’s for convenience?
Butch was, er, hypothetically trying to get me to look at Fenix to do some pre-testing for him as his current fancy pants flashlight was having some customer support issues. I like some of what I’m seeing, but do I look more for the tacticool pocket clip/crenelations all around/more expensive, or plain-jane-but-half-as-expensive, when realistically it will live in the bottom of my pocket and not clipped up top?
Sigh. Why can’t things just work?
