I'm sure it works, but it ain't going to be as good as the CR123A light. I'm curious what he has against the rechargeable batteries. I've got several lights that can use CR123A or 18650 rechargeable. While I keep a pack of CR123A on hand for those that can't use the 18650 (mostly weapon lights), I must say I prefer the rechargeable battery.The one he has uses the CR123A batteries. But I don't doubt the one you have work great on 2AA batteries.
He always uses those batteries... they do sell a rechargeable battery for it too. He said something about those and he didn't like it and stays with the regular batteries. He buys a 10 pack for about $15 and has batteries for the entire year.
We'll have to agree to disagree on that one. I've been a around CPF for a while and got tired of the snobbery I found over there.Don't go to CPF then. There's lots of professional reviews with tons of photos there. I stay away from the place because it's a money pit. I have too many damn lights as it is, most unused because something newer and brighter came along. Last light I bought was that Nitecore TM03.
I will agree with you on the Nitecore products. I was actually building my own P60 based lights for a little while to get what I wanted. They worked great, much better than anything I could buy at a store for a similar price. Still have and use them. I happened on an Amazon sale on a Nitecore P12GT and it's been my light since. I still use the home built P60s, one on resides on the night stand, another mounted on a shotgun in the corner, and a few more floating around. The Nitecore is the one I typically carry around though. I actually panicked a bit when it disappeared on me a few months ago.
...and they succeeded in creating an Eveready/Yugo that costs more than a Maglite/Cadillac. Convince people to buy a name and you can sell them anything.Eddo, you're probably right. MBA professors like to tell the tale of when Nabisco CEO John Sculley took over at Apple, he used a Maglite and a cheap plastic flashlight to make the point to his staff that there are no MID-priced flashlights, and that by God they were going to make the Maglite/Cadillac of computers, not the Eveready/Yugo...
