    Iím constantly amazed that flashlight companies canít just get with the program and put at least one switch on the butt. If they want to do other fancy shit too, thatís fine, but you gotta have a switch on the butt. Itís just what everyone is used to.

    But I might still grab one of these anyway.

    Interesting option, but the lack of a tail switch is a shortcoming. Probably slated for the tactical version in the works.

    Iíll probably buy one...

    I'll give up a tail switch for a task light for daylight hours, backed up by a real flashlight for nighttime. But it should have a solid butt for thwacking things (I've definitely driven hundreds of small nails and tacks with a Emerson CQC7 pocket knife).

    It also looks like the charging port is going to be very exposed to gunk/moisture, situated as it is. Maybe I'm just extra cynical today.

    Bump: anyone get one of these and play with it?

    Looks like they are still on pre-order? I kinda really want one myself.

    If they wanted this thing to be ubiquitous, they could have kept the switch they put on it and add a tail switch in addition.

    While we're at it, given that charging ports aren't standardized, a couple of different port types or Qi wireless charging could have also been useful.

    I'm gonna hold off, but I do like the direction they're starting to go in.

    Multiple port types would radically complicate the light. Wireless charging would be hard to do above a couple of watts because of the limit on coil size so would be unusably slow.

    I canít imagine what would be better than USB C.

    Just looked a SF website to see what they have to compete in the edc category. Sidekick with pocket clip is $39 and it has 300 output plus a more usable low end of 60 and 5 but the micro usb.
    It ainít over till the fat lady sings.

    I've carried a Sidekick on my Keychain for several years. I've never seen one with a factory pocket clip.
