The Piko TL Mini fits perfectly and comfortably into my hand. It is small and light enough to carry in a cycling jersey pocket without noticing it, and throws a very bright beam.
Add in programmable operation (I set it to 4 levels of brightness) and it’s the best flashlight I’ve ever used for that combination of qualities.
The “Mini” has a big brother with a larger battery, the 180g Piko TL Max, but I prefer the more compact size and lighter weight of the Mini.
It’s a great choice for many uses, including backpacking. Set the light to double-click-on to avoid turning it on with a single press while stowed. There is even a mount for a bike handlebar.
