LRI: Photon X-Light Micro

provided for review by
This is the one of the most advanced and cheapest light in its class. The light is manufactured by Laughing Rabbit Inc. (www.laughingrabbitinc.com) the original manufacturer of Photon Light and Photon Proton. The light is similar to other coin cell lights in its class, however it is similar to Photon Freedom Max in many aspects with exception for the size and Body Material and Overall Quality. The light has a Soft Silicone GID (Glow in Dark) rubber cover on the Switch Side. Switch makes Click Noise (sound) when clicked. This gives firm confirmation about the action, some what useful, just in case if the light switches on in the pocket. Overall good, buy one if you are looking for a cheaper alternative to Photon Freedom Max.

Product Update: The New LRI Photon Rex is announced. The New LRI Photon Rex is now available check for LRI Photon Rex Review Click Here The Rex features four extremely bright LED's in a single line array. The entire array has Freedom features which include variable brightness, multiple signal modes and an automatic SOS mode.
