I recently got one of these because I was so impressed with the T180.
If a compact EDC light is what you seek, then look no further. This thing has the versatility of being able to run on a single AA battery or a single CR123A.
The output is a nice blend of field and throw. The runtimes are great, especially considering that this is a fairly bright light.
Mine has withstood wet conditions, heat (it stays in my truck often), drops, and the occasional getting stepped on. I've used it a lot at my job, and so far coworker theft has been its biggest threat.
About the only thing I haven't really subjected this thing to is actually striking someone with it. I'm sure it would handle it, but its small size makes it a less than practical club. Plus I've been very lucky to not have to defend myself in a while.
All in all, if you're looking for a tough dependable EDC light, give this one a look. It's a great light for just about everything short of signaling aircraft. Dan
