While you may desire to own a more feature rich flashlight there would be no harm done in offering one these sub three-dollar mini lights to family and friends as gifts or tokens. The Pocketman would certainly illuminate the path of someone who previously went without a personal light. The flashlight has the three light modes of High, Low and Strobe which are easily controlled by a switch in the tailcap. A user can also slide the head out and in to adjust the light beam from a spot to flood light. If for one reason or the other you decide ten lights are too much then try the six pack.
