Top of the line EDC light

I have read every review and agree this is a great light. I did something a little different with mine. I took about a 28 inch piece of paracord, melted to two ends together an made mine an EDC necklace light. It's tucked under my shirt until I need it and it stays concealed when I don't. Always ready!

Nice and bright

I have had the Sidekick for a couple of months. I can tell you it is very bright. The charge lasts a very long time with occasional use, I do use it every day but not for a long time. It isn't a tactical light so don't buy it for that purpose. The only thing I've noticed that is of minor concern, it does heat up when on medium or high for more than a minute or so. It's not too hot to hold but you do notice it. I usually put it on low when I feel it getting hot. Other than that I love it. I put it on a neck lanyard and in my shirt pocket, it's always with me at work.

Very Nice

The only thing I wish it had was an SOS function. Otherwise, it provides excellent light in smaller spaces, and fans out for great coverage. It's not a light for checking the perimeter, but will get you around nicely.

Great Performer - But Strange Design

I've honestly had no issues with the flashlight. It's worked great for every scenario I've used it for. You can never have too many light sources available to you.

My only complaint is with the charging of the device. The USB cord is exceptionally short, and when the device is done charging, the low setting activates and the flashlight turns on and stays on until you remove it from the charger. I actually contacted surefire to make sure this was correct, and they confirmed. Additionally, this information is not located in the manual so, you're left guessing "is this thing working correctly?"

Awesome value!

I think this light has the most bang for the buck. USB rechargeable, 3 settings; low, med, high. High setting is freekin BRIGHT for a little keychain-style light! The handiest, everyday light I now own.

Good light but crummy customer service

This seems like a good little light. I like that on the high setting it lights up a whole area but there is a low setting good for map reading at night without losing night vision.

When it's recharging, the light blinks once a second, which isn't cool if you are in an environment where you dont want people to see a strobe light. Is that normal? I dont know: i called customer service and have waited over an hour to talk to a rep.

Great EDC

Upon reading the reviews, as well as owning 2 other SF flashlights I decided to pounce on it. Got a decent price utilizing the Father's Day Coupon code.
Been using this as an EDC for the past 2 weeks, the 300 lumen's is more than adequate. I use it for IT work, sometimes having to go into the network wiring closet to check connections. Most of the connections of the cables are deep into the rack housing the switches. The Sidekick provide ample lumens for me to check the cables.
The size is perfect for me and having it clipped to my belt loop via quality retracting name badge holder, it's always on me.
Time for me to ditch the dinky pinch lights on my key chain.
However, I wish SF would make a usb plug to cover the charge port to keep dust or moisture from affecting it.
Speaking of USB, I like it where I can charge it in my car as I drive should it need a top off.
Other than that, I like it so far and a friend of mine is now eyeing for one after he seen it.

Description

SIDEKICK-A
SIDEKICK-A 084871325417

This ultra-compact, powerful LED illuminator was created so it could be carried and used by everyone. The rechargeable Sidekick was designed to attach to keys so it’s always available and, most importantly, ready for everyday use and emergencies. This polymer-bodied light features three levels of output that will provide security and peace of mind, no matter what. On high and operated just like a key FOB, its wide, smooth 300-lumen MaxVision Beam™ illuminates all dark areas at night, providing peace-of-mind navigation with a useful range well past 50 meters. Its medium- and low-output settings, 60 and 5 lumens respectively, offer much more runtime and more than enough light for reading, close-up work, or even navigating outdoors while preserving dark-adapted vision.

Sidekick is ideal for everyone, even children, keeping in mind that the light output from a typical smartphone doesn’t offer one percent of the light output and it drains all-important smartphone battery power. This tiny, lightweight light, which can also be carried in a pocket or purse, is easily rechargeable via its micro-USB port using a vehicle or wall charger. Protect yourself and your family—own the one and only Sidekick—something everyone should have at their disposal.

Features
  • High-performance LED and special faceted reflector produce broad, smooth MaxVision Beam™ optimized for the human eye
  • Easy click-type switch permits access to all 3 output levels with repeated presses
  • Micro-USB charging port permits simple recharging of integral Li-ion battery
  • Compact, lightweight polymer body is weather resistant; features split ring for easy attachment to keys or carabiner clips
  • Always-accessible light provides countless utility uses, including emergency preparedness
  • Backed by SureFire’s No-Hassle One-Year Guarantee
