Comments about MicroStream Alkaline Battery-Powered LED Pen Light (Red):
I purchased a few of these Streamlight Microstream flashlights about a year ago. I must admit that I was very hesitant once I realized that it operated on a single AAA battery. In the past I have found AAA battery powered devices to not perform as desired.
Well, let me tell you when it comes to this flashlight nothing could be further from the truth. This little baby is a performer, I have used it on a daily basis for the past year.
I did make a performance improvement on this light by switching to the Energizer Ultimate Lithium AAA battery. This model battery claims to offer 8-times the life of a typical alkaline battery. In my experience in this flashlight they have lasted at least 10-times the life of the alkaline.
The Ultimate Lithium are of course more costly than the alkaline batteries, they cost about 4-times as much. But, keep in mind that I am getting 8-10 times the life over the alkalines, therefore based on the hours of use they are actually cheaper.
If you are considering purchasing one of these lights don't hesitate, you will be happy with it. Let me caution you, if you want to save yourself some hassle don't order just one, if you do you will be purchasing more in short order. I just ordered four more for gifts, that's what brought me here today.
