Really the only things I did like are entirely preferences - I would prefer a warmer LED was used, and I like to have a magnet in the tail of right angle lights.
For a size comparison here's a lineup from left to right: unprotected 18650, H3R, Armytek Wizard Pro, Skilhunt H03 RC, Convoy S2+. This light is impressively compact, but with a bit of a bulbous head.
One side of the head is almost spherical. There's a flush switch on the side, the magnetic charging connector on the top, and the reflector on the front. A stainless steel retaining ring holds the reflector in place.
The glass lens has an anti-reflective coating to let as much light as possible out.
The reverse of the head has a few fins for cooling.
The indentations in the bezel can be used to unscrew it, which allows for removal of the glass, o-ring, reflector, and centering ring to reveal the LED.
The light comes in a white box along with:
- Friction-fit clip
- Magnetic charging cable
- Helmet clip, and a small allen key to fasten it
- Spare o-ring
The included helmet clip allows you to fasten a bracket to a helmet, and could be useful for construction or caving applications. A screw fixes the bracket to the helmet. There's a small wrench included to tighten the screw that has a slot for storage within the bracket itself - but for regular use I would store it elsewhere. Connecting the light to the bracket is a solid friction fit.
As mentioned above, I was surprised to find that a light named 'magnemite' is lacking a magnet in the tailcap, which would have been a nice feature.
A single side switch controls all functions of the light. Operation is as follows:
- From off, click to turn on to the last used mode
- From on, click to turn off
- From on, hold to change modes, moonlight > low > mid> high
- From off, hold to turn on in moonlight
- From off, hold for 2 seconds to lock the mode
- When locked, long press to unlock
- From on or off, double press for turbo
- From on or off, triple press for SOS
This is a variation of a very common UI, and for a good reason - it's intuitive and easy to use, with plenty of features.

There's an indicating LED built in to the charging cable that's red while charging, and changes to green when it's fully charged.
Charging was measured from the USB port, bringing the cell from dead to full. The light charges at about 1 A before a long CV phase, terminating at about 0.7 A. Looks like a good charge.
- Comes with a wide assortment of accessories
- UI is easy to use and intuitive
- Convenient magnetic charging
- Pocket clip has very flexible mounting options
- Flexible power options
- Very stable output in almost all modes
- I'm not a fan of the emitter choice here, and would prefer something neutral and higher CRI
- I would like to see a magnet added to the tail
