    actually most of us here prefer LED light, no bulb to change, more power efficient, brighter.

    depends la, but for now the best incand will out-throw the best LED given other spec is the same.

    ............

    so far my Pelican clickie has not failed me depite my old (bought from end of 2002) Pelican M6 developing some quirks now. blinks b4 a constant on. well thatz 5 years of problem free service.

    do oso note lifetime warranty applies more to residents of USA. if ur oni light need spare parts, good luck (regardless of brand).

    oh yes yes!! their clickies are pretty bad actually.. once i dropped my L4 and one part of the plastic inside the tailcap broke and basically screw up the entire tailcap..

    but fortunately, i called SF usa and they graciously offered a replacement at no charge at all, even shipping fee is waived (albeit is sent by USPS).. but still i was quite surprised that they didnt even charge me, especially when im quite far from them geographically

    yup thats true.. the amt u pay for SF can easily get u a brighter light from other brands.. just a matter of preference i guess
