Photon Freedom

Yup, Photon lights are available in Malaysia now. The Photon Freedom Micro review came out in Malaysia’s T3 March 2010 issue.

Well currently I have a Energizer headlamp which cost me around RM40. The Freedom Fusion is RM120 but it’s way way better in terms of built and function. Those of you who have crazy expensive ones from Black Diamond or any other brand can check and compare.

The Photon Freedom Fusion is a flashlight, headlamp, table light, clip-on safety light, or even a bike light. Yes it can transform. :D

Check out the detail review of Photon Freedom Fusion on The Gadgeteer. For product info, check out MyPhotonLight.com. Freaking awesome I tell you. Can’t wait to try it outdoors. Any camping trips or hikes coming up?

Oh and if it helps, they are all Made in the U.S.A. If any of you campers/hikers/climbers are interested, let me know. Leave a comment and I will get back to you. IMHO, Maglite can suck this.

Did I mention to you that their products are used by NASA shuttle crews, US Military the US Secret Service?
