"burns longer and brighter than expected"
I've taken this on a few caving trips recently and it has proved its worth. The reactive lighting feature is nice and hardly noticeable, and seems to really conserve the battery charge. The boost mode kicks out a lot of light at 215 lumens, and the color temperature and CRI of the LED have made it useful for photographic lighting applications.
Although I haven't fully submerged it, nor do I intend to, I have taken it into extremely damp conditions with no adverse effects. I have not tried exhausting the battery yet, but have used it for approximately 6 hours of burn time in 'max autonomy' mode and had charge to spare. Seems to recharge in about 1 hour with wall plug USB.
Only complaint, and a minor one, is that it can be hard to remember the sequence of controls for the two buttons
Rating

Yes, I would recommend this product.
