A lower level of just 1.5 lumens is ideal for when you only need a small output, such as finding a lock in a door, reading a map or when you wish to be more discreet and not disturbing others.

Operating the flashlight is incredibly simple, a twist on the head to turn on, then twist again for the lowest output, unscrewing the head turns it off, and it also features an anti lost design, meaning the head doesn’t fully unscrew preventing accidentally losing it.
