Design

The Jet-μ is made of 6061 aerial aluminum alloy which is anti-corrosion, solid and lightweight. What’s more, this little flashlight is waterproof! With an easy grip, it’s comfortable on the hand, ideal for EDC use. The JET-μ came in a simple plastic package, including spare o-rings, lanyard, instructions and a warranty card. JET-μ can hang safely from your bag and is not easy to lose with the use of lanyard.

Performance

Jet-μ uses one AAA battery. You can insert it and switch on it by fastening the head, or switch off by loosening. Brightness can be changed from low, medium, high by turning the flashlight off and, within one second, on again. We recommend to use NiMH battery which lasts longer and the overall light output was higher than an alkaline battery. With a high lumen CREE XP-G2 LED under the hood, and a much stronger beam throw, the light is ideal for daily use and various outdoor activities. But, there is a drawback that the flashlight head will become extremely hot after continuous use.

Brightness Settings

The JET-μ has three brightness modes, with a max output of 135 lumen. For the luminous effect shown in the pictures, you might find that the brightness difference between medium level and high level is not so pronounced.

Moreover, the flashlight has a memory function: the next time the flashlight is turned on, it will be in the same mode as it was before being switched off.
