Over the years I developed a fascination for flashlights. I am always looking for the best combination of features, form factor and practicality out there. I believe this flashlight is best in class in all categories. Some of the great features include:
1)Excellent user interface
2)Great battery life (easy to get AAs)
3)Flexibility with battery chemistries
4)Great emitter with nice flood pattern
5)Great weather resistance
The craftsmanship and materials are superb and the flashlight feels great in the hand. As a bonus Benjamin is a great person to deal with and very responsive if you have questions.
It's perfect to carry in any type of pants or shorts. I liked it so much I pre-ordered a second
I’m glad no one had to hype this light up for me, I came into the purchase not knowing much about Ben and how great he does machining his parts and how much pride he takes in his products. I just seen a cool light one day and figured I wanted one. When it came in and I started using it for my carry on grave shift at work, I swear it out performed in ways I didn’t expect, the user interface is easy to work and figure out and it puts out a nice flood of light and it’s pretty bright even when I don’t have it on the highest setting. If anyone is on the fence about spending the cash to get an S2, I’d say it’s well worth the price when you can get one.
