Coast HP3R Rechargeable Pen Light ~ Review

Coast Hp3rToday we are checking out the Coast HP3R Rechargeable Focusing Pen Light. As many of you know I am a flashlight snob. Having a good quality light is a vital part of being a mechanic. In addition to that, I carry a flashlight everywhere I go. I asked the folks at Coast if they had a great quality rechargeable pen light, and the HP3R is the light they recommended.

I have been using the HP3R as my daily light for about 3 months. I feel like I really put the light through hell for this review. The big question is, will it replace my Streetlight Stylus Pro as a daily light?
