A new sample of the Micra Lithium was received in May 2003, and just sort of "hung around" until now.
The new Micra is a bit different, but works the same. The new version features a "magnifying" lens built into the bezel (head), and has the LED and reflector board glued together as a single piece. It also has a smooth reflector, rather than stippled or faceted like the original Micra has.
Newer version is on the right; original version is on the left.
Here's a beamshot of the newer version.
As usual, it's from 12" from the target.
Measured 20,800mcd at 12" using an LM631 light meter.
The light is now called the Trek Lithium, instead of the Micra Lithium.
I'm not sure exactly *when* this change occurred, but it has, so you ought to know.
Don't let that 3 1/2 star rating fool you. This is a very nice light; it just uses a strange battery and isn't as bright as most other white LED flashlights. It would be excellent for a disaster kit or first-aid kit, because the battery has a long storage time (at least ten years) and a long runtime (ten to twelve days, continuous).
Any updates related to this review will be posted as they happen.
