Is that the blue LED version? Can't tell if your camera is playing tricks on me.

I have one in blue. Blue light doesn't "spread" very far, so it is a very good light to use to light your way without your light being noticed. Had a white one too, but gave it away to family who thought their 30 year old krypton bulb 2C rayovac was "Good enough" in a prolonged outage.

They are not the brightest thing out there for a 2x CR123 battery light, in fact, kind of dim, but thats what I wanted. They are bombproof, simple, long batt life, and easy to hold. Currently, I use mine if I need to get something at night without waking up the wife. Turning on a white light immediately wakes her up. It's secondary use would be to provide area lighting during a prolonged power outage. Good light to have on hand, and at least until recently, made in the USA!

Inova does make some high quality products! I think I might spring for an Inforce, and let you all know how it is. So far I've had a T2, T3, and T4. Excellent lights.

I'm fairly certain it is blue, I know they made a UV version but the LED's look too bright for that.

I recommend the following light to EVERYONE:

Buy an Inova X5 with RED leds. It only takes ONE 123a battery, and is a battery vampire. You can drain the last drop out of every spent 123a battery you have. I used mine every night in the house walking around.... when i wake up and go to the bathroom... and when i shower.

i cant recommend this light highly enough.

Agreed. But they sell at a premium and are hard to find. I'll take the first one I can find under $40. My last two non-red X5's have cost me $15 each. The red X5 is the ultimate SHTF light. But to be fair, I use the non-red X5's as battery drainers from my other various CR123 lights as well. (I just am careful to keep the batteries paired to prevent unbalanced cells)
