Sidekick

Bought one for my wife about 6 months ago. She loves it!
Much better than her smartphone light. Many times she has saved the day at work by using her sidekick to help someone find dropped items on the floor.

Another great SF product

I have a lot of SF lites and love them. They work even after dropping them. I read most reviews which were all positive so I will not repeat those. I have only one suggestion. I do a lot at nite work and in total darkness and in a hurry I find it difficult to feel which side of the lite has the switch. If It was in a true emergency situation I think I would be slow getting the lite on. Maybe it just me at 72. Maybe the sense of touch is not as good as it once was.

My suggestion is to make the other side totally sooth. No edges to confuses the sense of touch. This problem is the only reason I gave it a four. Thanks for all your great products.

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.

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
