Excellent pocket flashlight

Excellent build quality , brightness with the 3 settings and size. My ONLY issue is that the user manual shows a mini carabiner clip is included . Mine did not have . I called and was told that the clip was not included and could not explain why the manual shows otherwise .

Functional and clever little personal light

I have and use the Surefire Outdoorsman I through several generations of improvement. I am no stranger to Surefire products and their quality of functionality/design.

I purchased two Sidekicks during a recent online 15% discount sale. Based on my previous experience with Surefire, I had no reason to expect anything less than a well engineered and appropriately useful product. I have attached one of these lights to my fire department portable radio so it is within easy grasp anytime I need an auxiliary light source. I have not had too many occasions to use it, but it's size to light output ratio is most impressive. The USB charging is quite clever, though I don't understand why the light needs to flash during charging.
The sidekick would be a great product on which to include a functional strobe feature. I'm not aware of any Surefire lights that have a strobe function, but manufacturers of inferior lighting devices are adding a strobe feature to their lights. You'd better get with the program!

My only real complaint is about shipping. I selected what I assumed would be USPS, but instead, my package arrived by UPS, and drn slowly, too! Just allow customers to designate USPS or UPS as the choices for shipping. Customers can pick the carrier that best suits their circumstances. Around here, USPS is very stable and reliable, UPS is more erratic with delivery times. If given the choice between the two, I would always go with USPS.

Otherwise, very pleased with my purchase. I will continue to expect innovative products from your company in the future.

I forget it is in my pocket

Well pleased with the product. I have tried the various light output settings under a wide variety of conditions from a pitch black basement to outside on the farm at night). In all cases I found the light to be up to the job.
I had hand surgery last year and have been working on my hand strength. As a result, I have no problem operating the light. I can imagine that an older person, or an individual with arthritis in the hand would find the on-off switch difficult to manage.
The product recharges quickly with the USB connection
This is my 4th Surefire product. I am a big fan of the company.

Average working middle class guy

I own several Sure Fire flashlights,all outstanding products,but this light is the one to have on yourself at all times! Everyone should have a bright light whenever they venture out and about,with "Sidekick ",no excuses! Hook it to your keys,pocketbook... It's almost like it's not even there! Powerful enough to temporarily blind human &animal alike,also the three settings come in handy, whether looking for your car,or a seat at the movies! I also bought the "Lightkeeper" for using when I don't have keys. Do yourself a favor and get this light,you won't be sorry!

Awesome

I am very happy with this product. It does what I bought it to do. I wanted something small for my pants pocket, and it is. I wanted to recharge by USB, as I have several other gadgets that recharge by USB, and it does. I wanted the legendary Surefire smooth beam, and it has it. I wanted something bright, and it is.

Police Officer

This is an outstanding light. I've used Surefire products for years on my issued weapons and personal weapons and I'm glad Surefire has come up something you can put on your keys. I bought one for my keys and for my wife's keys and this light packs a great punch. Thanks Surefire for another great product!

Description

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
