Glass lens.

Voltage range, 2.75-10V.

Uses 2 RCR123's or 18650 sized battery.

Run time from the hkequipment description. I don't know if CR123's or RCR123's were used to measure the run time.

Bumpity bump. I got my one from DX, and I'm really happy with it. The anodisation is almost flawless, it fits together nicely and it's tons o' fun pointing out distant trees at night time. =D Really pleased with it.

Then again, I don't have much of a taste for quality - I've never held in my hands a Fenix, NiteCore, SureFire, etc. But this thing is really nice. The usable spill is great too. Only qualm I have is that low isn't low, it's medium-high! It's got to be something like 90%.
