I actually use a similar flashlight, made by the same company, called the Gerber infinity ultra task light. It's a single LED, single AA flashlight, with a clip, super small, and clips to the brim of my baseball cap. They used to make a red LED version, I have three of those, and have had the white LED one in my pocket for every day for at least the last 10 years, maybe longer. They run for about 100 hours on a single AA, but are really dim at that point.
Have been looking at the one you reviewed since the red ones I like are no longer made. I can still find them on eBay though so I guess I will hang on and put it on my Christmas list, can never have to many flashlights.

When people react that vociferously it suggests to me a very strong belief system combined with a very weak experience base. So, I dug out an old Starlight LED flashlight that has both red and white LEDs on an adjustable dimmer switch. A trip to Radio Shack yielded a couple a green LED's. When my project list thins about a bit this fall I am going to replace the white with the green and give it a go.
BTW, here is the first web article and here is the second web article.

As a side note, some of my early red dot finderscopes had a green dot option on them, but that version seems to have disappeared in favor of all-red versions.
