    I am looking for a light for walking at night. Random googling gets me to this, which seems like a great product. USB-C charging, looks well built etc. But it almost seems like a hidden page on their website.

    Has anyone heard about this model? Or other recommendation? It is for safety walking on dark sidewalk. Something more than a reflective strip on my pack which is what I use now.

    Thanks,
    P.K.

    It looks good, but it's new and I haven't read much feedback on it. Although, typically Fenix makes good stuff so I don't think you'd have a problem.

    Another option would be the Fenix CL05 or CL09 if you simply want something to be seen by others for safety. The CL05 takes an AAA and I believe the CL09 is CR123. Of course a right angle light with a low mode would help as well.

    Good idea about the CL0x's. Found the CL09 on Amazon sold with a rechargable CR123 which is almost the same thing. Thx!
