The rubber skins on their lights work well for me, on the two-battery model it slips over my wrist and leaves my fingers free, and the one-battery model can be slipped over a finger. I've taken to "wearing" the larger one on my walks at night, and it's great at alerting oncoming motorists that I'm in a crosswalk. People who were ready to blow a stop sign come to a skidding halt when the big beam hits them across the hood.

I'll have to try the drooling/teeth method when I have a chance.
I didn't mean to rub it in...

I was just saying for the other people following the thread that they are just comming out with this upgrade... the current Mini123 is still bitchin light.. still my favorite...

Try it... it is straight class...

It is great for when you are changing a tire on the side of the road and a cop pulls up right in the middle of it when you can't stop and the drool is really going good... yeah... that is the stuff..

Good point.. I should try that finger thingy.. I didn't really get how it would come in handy when I first got it..

I'll have to see if I still have the package it came it... pretty sure I have it at work

FWIW, I recently had a small issue with my Incendio (it locked itself into the max output level), which they wanted me to return to Hong Kong for repair.

I forwarded the email to Battery Junction, where I bought the light, and with no additional follow-up, they are sending me a replacement engine at no charge. It's already in the damn mail.

Gotta love customer service when it's done right. I hereby heartily recommend Battery Junction as a preferred flashlight/battery supplier.

One dolla make me holla.

I was at the Dollar Tree (a dollar store around here) the other day and spied a heaping rack of 3 LED flashlights. They take 3 AAA's radially mounted. Well, since the only LED I have is a headlamp, I bought it.. you all talking fancy about your LED's and all.
The good thing is, it works and cost a dollar. Yea, I'm badass.
