I've owned one of these BD Ions for several years. It has generally ridden in my butt pack or briefcase for occasional use. It has been reliable and is bright for its small size. Recently, I made an Altoid's tin emergency kit and used the Ion for the light source (with the strap and bracket removed). It was as small as a good keychain light and significantly brighter. I bought several more at this good price to put in Altoid's tin kits, first aid kits, briefcases, etc. This product does use an unusual battery, but it is shipped with a battery and that battery will last a long time powering one LED. I have only replaced the battery once in my original Ion.
