    When you read all the other reviews you will find glowing reports. And I agree. The light output is awesome, love the size and the magnet and wire loop make it easy to attach or hang it from just about anything. But there is one critical feature that is missing and I am surprised other people didn’t mention it.

    The light doesn’t remember the last setting. I like the red light to use late at night when camping. I can throw it on the shelf at the top of the tent and easily find it at night. However, to turn it on, it always defaults to the low setting white light. That means you have to quickly cycle through med white, super bright white and then you get to red. No big deal, unless your partner is in the tent and then they aren’t too happy about the sudden bright white light flashing three times, each time getting brighter before you find the red light.

    Turn it off and then back on and three more bright white flashes as you quickly cycle through the options before you get to the red light.

    If the light would remember which mode was last selected between uses, the light would be perfect. But it doesn’t, so it gets 3 stars.

    Nice little light. I find cycling through the modes a bit cumbersome though. Sometimes I just want to go straight to red or green light for example.

    Build quality is great, however the metal ring (that attaches to the key ring holder) broke after just a few days. Beware if you attach it to a belt or similar.

    All in all an interesting concept, but maybe not for everyone.

    I have a few Fenix light and like their light and quality. This is very nice as and the light modes are nice. The big downside for me is no side switch. It takes a lot of twisting to cycle through the modes.
