Q: How did the tool/equipment function as far as saving you time? 

A: Its small size with clip and light weight made it easy to keep with me. 

  

Q: What kind of setup was involved before using the product? 

A: Unscrew the rear of the flashlight, insert the two AAA batteries that are included, and then reinstall the rear of the flashlight. 

  

Q: How easy was it to use? 

A: It was as easy as pushing the button on the back of the light. Slightly push the button for the light to be on momentarily or push until it clicks for the light to be steadily on, then push again to turn it off. 

  

Q: How was its packaging? Did it come with any accessories? 

A: Nicely packaged in an illustrated box. It came with an attached pocket clip that is removable. 

  

Q: Was there a manual included? If so, did you use the manual, and was the manual easy to understand? 

A: Yes, one small manual is included that was in several languages. 

  

Q: What features did you like? 

A: This is a no-frills light. It has a nice bright beam that lights things up well. The Hi-Vis stands out well and waterproofing is a plus. Its construction makes it safe to use around batteries and electricity. 

 

Q: Is there any way you could think to improve or add to this tool? 

A: I wish there was a way to connect a wrist tether to it. Brake cleaner did have an effect on the plastic body of the flashlight, but it remained waterproof. 

  

Q: What types of jobs/repairs did you use this tool for? Please provide a few specific examples. 

A: I used it for some quick inspections and miscellaneous small jobs where the room was limited for the use of a larger light. I was able to hold it in my mouth and didn’t have to worry about breaking my teeth. 

  

Q: Have you used a previous version of this tool? If so, what are some new features compared to the old version? 

A: I have used Streamlight flashlights over the years and have always been happy with the quality. I feel the same about this light. 

    

Q: On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate this tool overall? Why? 

A: I would rate this a nine. It's safe around electrical circuits and batteries, as well as waterproof, Hi-Vis, lightweight, and has a good battery life. However, the chemical resistance failed against brake cleaner. I suggest avoiding contact with it if possible.
