Flashlight Feature I Like
I won't go into details but I probably spent more money on flashlights than I would care to tell my wife about.
Long story short, I was looking for an EDC flashlight that would fit in my pocket And I found 1 from Olight.
When I was reading up on it, they made it clear that the tan colored 1 was bright with the 1st click and the second click was dim.
The black colored 1 was dim with the 1st click and bright with the second click.
That got me to thinking that the 1st thing I ever did when I got 1 of those super blinding lights is to learn how to click it enough times to make it go dim because that usually did the job.
Unless I'm outside in the middle of the night, I don't need a blinding white light immediately.
So I got the 1 that goes dim with the 1st click and I found on the rare occasions I need bright, no problem.
Now I have a reason to buy more!
That's all I got.
One thing I've started trying out over just the last couple days is that I'm carrying TWO.
One of them is the fist-sized Macrostream which is running bright on the first tap and dim on the second.
The other is the pen-sized Stylus Pro that runs the opposite.
This is in keeping with the mantra that having only one of a critical electronic thing is almost as bad as having none, and two kinda ensures that you'll manage to have one.
If the concept works out in practice, I'll probably program the Macrostream to run in brightest mode only to keep things simple.
Ahhhh! The joy of Duluth Firehose Flex pants and their cargo pockets!

The Surefire that now lives in my pocket is programmable as to what the clicks do and in what order so I have that aspect covered but I agree with you that for 99% of the times I deploy that light the lowest setting is the “right” setting so that’s the way it’s set up right now. 👍
BTW I’ve been carrying the darn thing for months and I’ve yet to have to recharge the damn thing! So I’m sold on the new USB chargeable lights.
It’s a °IIIII° thing 😎
