    Same with some of the light and laser pointers outthere using digital controls. They need to be turned on to be cycled through light, light + laser or laser only. So if I am in a situation. I have to turn on the unit and press some button combo to make a mode switch, in the mean time while I am doing this I have to cover my light or jam the unit to the wall to cover up my signature. Or if I was using my light at low setting for reading stuff before having it turned off, I will have to turn it on and cycle through to high if I am using it for other purpose - no more surprise. Clever design on the computer with the circuit board but obviously the designer doesn't use these things in practical scenarios.

    You see there is a problem here in many practical scenarios, and you kinda notice that surefire doesn't have millions of settings and use digital control switches. I can grab it and turn it on at low or high.
    Yes, exactly! The most important feature in a flashlight is that it needs to have a tactical mode so that the flashlight always initially turns on at the highest level should you need it in a hurry. Surefire understands this. The Fenix PD-35TAC also has a tactical mode that you can turn on or off depending on if you want tactical mode or regular mode. Most

    things I'd be interested in.
    1: can clip onto my bike or helmet
    2: dim mode for indoors
    3: mode for changing functions on a separate control from on/off. So I don't have to cycle through a bunch of modes (flash/dim/red/bright/sos) to get back to ON.
    4: ability to carry a spare battery charged
