    I've tried lumenok's and nockturnal's. No comparison...nockturnal's are far superior...IMO.

    Nocturnal all the way. I've used lumenoks in the past & they are not very bright & don't last very long.

    Old style Nockturnal. I have used Nockturnal, Lumenok, and CleanShot. I much prefer the Nockturnals. But the new design isn't for me so when I run out of my originals I will have to look at other options.

    They seem like they're built cheaply to me. Still work great but not as tough as the old ones

    The brightness and length of time that the battery lasts is very good in the nocturnal. I just wish there was an easier way to turn the darn things off. I have had issues in the past with not being able to turn them off.

    I only have experience with nocturnals. They work well and last a while but as mentioned, they are a pain to get turned off!

    I've never used them before. I thought I would save some money by making a bunch up though.

    The red launch pad is nice a bright. Nocturnals are good don't get the yellow that one wasn't very bright when I used it last year. Also wasn't really yellow looked more like the color of a light in the house.

    I agree. Plus they are ugly now. I know know, but I like how the older style looks more than the new ones.

    I've tried them all but I keep coming back to Nocturnals. Like others have said before, I'm not as big of a fan of the new ones in comparison to the old ones, but I still favor them over the rest.
