First Look: Photon Micro-Light II

After watching the video that Jason Klass did on his “Sundries Kit” a while back, I decided to make a “Ditty Bag” of my own, of course modeled after his Sundries Kit… So, a few weeks ago I decided to pick up a missing piece using my REI dividend, the Photon Micro-Light II. Here are a few different reasons I went with this little light…

  • Weight: Mine weighs 9 g (0.4 oz), but after removing the metal clasp it now weighs 7 g (o.2 oz)!
  • Batteries: Replaceable! I don’t have to throw the unit away when the batteries die, just simply pick up a few more at the local store.
  • Use: This thing is easy to use. Simply push and hold down the large button, or flip the small switch on or off. (Caveat: The on/off switch is quite small.)
  • Illumination: This is where this light really shines, quite literally…

So anyway, here is a little video in which I show the light off a little…

About Stick

My blog is essentially a record of my hiking career. Through it, I, and others, can see how I have evolved from a heavy weight backpacker, to a smarter, more efficient, lightweight backpacker. Through the use of video, still photos, and of course writing, one can see my progression, as well as check out some of the places I hike, and not to mention some cool, lightweight gear options. For me, my blog is a journal, but for others, I hope that it is an interactive learning tool to aid them in their own progression towards lightweight backpacking.

    Just wandering if you know if this one burns brighter than the Photon X-Light Micro?
