Do you recall all the old horror movies where the hero drops a flashlight and it stops working (broken bulb)? These scenes will make no sense to anybody soon. I just saw the Jack Webb movie "Dragnet" and a person carring a "wire" had this thick wire recorder about the size of two slices of bread. The person seeing it for the first time say, "Wow! That's really small!"

I have purchased a flashlight from them, and it is awesome, but cost more than I want to pay for anything that is for occasional use. I got it back when i needed a light to use every night.
I've looked at b-s flashlights, and I really wouldn't recommend them. Not that there's anything wrong with the lights, but as someone who knows enough about modern flashlight internals to see through their marketing BS, they haven't got anything comparable Fenix or 4sevens lights don't except the price tag. (Exception: the one with the video camera built-in -- that's pretty unique.)
I'd really recommend 4sevens lights for anyone wanting a major step up in quality from the 100s of ebay/dealextreme/aliexpress lights. They're on par with Fenix, Nitecore, etc. for quality, but 4sevens lights are always cutting edge tech -- when new LEDs come out, you'll almost always see them in 4sevens lights first.
Big Ogre Cudgels!
