It looks rather plain and unpresentable against the background of its older brothers from metal with two to three hundred lumens of luminous flux at the exit, this very compact size Inova LED Microlight has quite decent functionality and efficiency.

The charge of one battery in 50% mode, which is enough for general lighting, was enough for me for 30-35 hours of continuous glow. And I prefer the Inova LED Microlight with a blue diode. In my opinion, it is more calm and does not hurt the eye like white, but the most important advantage of the blue diode is its light in the dark is much less noticeable from afar. However, in NAZ I preferred to put it with a white diode, precisely because of the brightness.
The compact lamp Inova LED Microlight has two operating modes.
1. Signal or demo mode management is simple, pressed the button on, released the button off. However, if you press and hold the button continuously for 15-20 seconds, then the lamp will blink affably to you four times and enter the main mode of operation.
2. The main mode The first press of the button gives a 100% glow of the diode, a second 50% and a third strobe. If I press the button sequentially to go through all three modes, and when pressed the fourth time, lock it for 15-20 seconds, then the lamp will go into the signal demo mode.
100% Inova LED Microlight has one feature. After four minutes of continuous use, the flashlight automatically turns off. According to the manufacturer, the flashlight battery is thus protected from premature discharge. A bit inconvenient, but considering that 50% of the mode is enough for general lighting, you can put up with this.
But it’s very convenient in the winter in a tent. I hung the lamp to the ceiling mount, turned on the 100% mode, while it is working it is packed in a sleeping bag, you lie there, fall asleep and you know that the lighting will turn off by itself. Another option for the unusual use of the Inova LED Microlight is as a headlamp. Very convenient way, I recommend! But for this, it requires some refinement in the form of a glued piece of Velcro to the body.
The second part of the Velcro is sewn to the fields of the headgear, for example, as in my version of Panama. Moreover, the number and places of lights attached to the headgear is limited only by the limits of your imagination. The lantern weighs only 14 grams.
Here’s what it looks like in assembly.
The main disadvantage of the Inova LED Microlight can be attributed to the high cost of batteries, a few months ago their replacement cost me 22 hryvnias. A short video about Inova LED Microlight.
