Concave TIR lens design with frosted dome in the center.

Battery is inserted in an unconventional fashion with anode pointing towards the tail.

Super strong rare earth neodymium magnet inside tailcap which is held down by the spring.

Finally, I have a flashlight that is small and light enough to be comfortably mounted onto my cap.

Failure is not an option. How about having Olight S1 Baton as a backup light? Are you able to find it in the picture?
