Use promo code DAZZ to save 50% on the Surefire Sidekick Ultra-Compact Variable-Output LED Flashlight - regularly $79.99, $39.99 after promo code. Code valid through 12/31/2018, one code per order. Offer can not be combined with any other offers, discount codes or coupons.

Product info from their site:

"This ultra-compact, powerful LED illuminator was created so it could be carried and used by everyone. The rechargeable Sidekick was designed to attach to keys so it's always available and, most importantly, ready for everyday use and emergencies. This polymer-bodied light features three levels of output that will provide security and peace of mind, no matter what. On high and operated just like a key FOB, its wide, smooth 300-lumen MaxVision Beam™ illuminates all dark areas at night, providing peace-of-mind navigation with a useful range well past 50 meters. Its medium- and low-output settings, 60 and 5 lumens respectively, offer much more runtime and more than enough light for reading, close-up work, or even navigating outdoors while preserving dark-adapted vision."

Anyone actually have one of these? If so what do you think of it? Does it get annoying having to click through the brightness levels every time you use it to get to the level you want?

I don't have this light but I believe all the led flashlight I own have multiple modes. Some have a memory so the light turns back on in the mode you were using last. I have no idea if this light has a memory and I can't seem to find a manual.

Here's a topic about it at candlepower forums. http://www.candlepowerforums.com/...hain-Light

A quick search for the word memory says it doesn't have a memory. So it would come on in low and then go to medium and high. A video review says the button is kinda hard to press but that would keep it from coming on in your pocket.

I have this light and carry it every day. All other lights I've tried were either too large or turned into garbage after a while. The only disadvantage of this light is that it gets hot quickly on the brightest setting. Clicking through the brightness is actually helpful because most of the time you'll want one of the lower power settings anyway. Remember it's a tool, not a toy. If you constantly need to use the brightest setting, you're looking in the wrong class of light. I paid close to full price and have no regrets.

I have one on my keychain and love it. I used to carry an LX2 or E2D and an EDC light, but once I got this little thing, the other two barely leave the house. You can reverse the order of the brightness settings so that it goes to bright on the first click. I even bought pink one on amazon for my girlfriend to carry on her keychain and she loves it too.
