Just got mine! Took me a couple minutes to figure out to turn it on. I didn't realize that the key ring was the key. 🤣
Any opinions on how bright these are? Can't find a lumen rating anywhere for these...

I’ve got a Nextorch UL360 which is bright for a compact camp light , I would guess the bright ness on yours is at lest 150 lum. amber will throw the most light but Im sure the green is easiest on the eyes 👌
Success! This time they actually shipped the correct Pro version. It was a nice surprise that each Glo-Toob came with a free Glo-Toob Tactical Kit (http://www.nextorch.com/en/index.php/accessories/147). So $2 more than previous drop ($21.99 vs. $19.99) but with a nice bonus. Definitely happy with this, since buying it in Canada is almost twice as much.

Nice! I was looking at that tactical kit as it makes the glo-toob much more versatile. Too bad I missed the last drop. :(
I’d like a light like this, but with 3 colors in there, different options.

The Amber one is the brightest
This better be the pro version! I’m joining based on the assumption that 30 weeks was enough time to fix the description, title and picture.
Will this really be the Pro version? Not like last time when I received the regular one?

Yes, the pro version
Out of the nearly 75 drops I participated in, 6 turned out to have issues- which translates to roughly 8%. Quite happy with the other drops, but the occasional "turns out it's unavailable" or "turns out it's something different" does leave a bad aftertaste
As others have mentioned, they shipped the regular Glo Toob AAA, not the Pro AAA. Specs on the Pro are better (longer run time, better water proof depth) and it has a slightly different design.
I also got the email before receiving my order, and options were a full refund with $5 credit on next Massdrop, or keep your order with a $10 discount on each unit ordered. Original drop price $19.99 each. Ordered 2, and with shipping to Canada at $5.25 ($45.23 tota) and no taxes, each one cost less than $16 Cdn after the discount ( - $20) and exchange rate. I think Massdrop handled this properly, and am happy with my order at the final price.
edited to add: I should note that getting the regular Glo Toob AAA in Canada, I'm looking at $30 and up, and significantly more for the Pro. Amazon.com charges a lot more to ship here, and amazon.ca has higher list prices.
Yup, Massdrop or Nextorch (not sure which) messed this one up as for which one we were supposed to get. I signed up for the PRO, but the regular works just fine for me. It should also be noted that Massdrop reached out to us to offer us a full refund plus $5, or a $10 discount on a $22 item. They did mess up, but I feel like they took care of us, so I'll continue to shop here.
Just got the email from massdrop about this being the non-pro; Based on this review, https://tacticalreviews.co.uk/wp/?p=1918, the non-pro has a different switch (loosen/tighten cap, versus the pro's keyring), worse WR (60m versus pro's 200m), non-pro has slight PWM/strobe effect (pro has none).
To be honest, if I had known this was the non-pro version, I would not have signed-up. I don't understand how this fundamental detail could have been so misunderstood, in the product listing. Feels like massdrop are starting to become a victim of their own success. Also very disappointed.
I also got the non pro model. Very disappointed.
I just received mine and they are not the Pro model as advertised. Not at all what I wanted or ordered. Would not have purchased the gen 1. Will be sending back. Change the ad. This is not the correct descriptio.

Received mine, also not the pro model. Contacting support.

Already did and haven’t heard back. Amazon prime has the white for $26 and all the other colors at $29.??. If you need them quickly. Sucks they didn’t get it right.
I use one in hotels. I clip it to something in the bathroom and leave it on low at night. That way when I wake up somewhere unfamiliar in the middle of the night I can differentiate the blue light coming from the bathroom and not walk out into the hallway buck naked, locking myself out. Again...
Anyone have any diving experience with these? I'd specifically like to know if the brightness can be dialed down to a dive-friendly level on the lower setting.

not really, i keep the one near my gauges on low and it doesnt mess with my night vision that much...i had a green one on low on my tank and it didnt bother me but i had some comments about me looking like the mothership coming in to take everyone away. so i swapped it with my other read one. i keep the green for my bags or inflatables. any of them on high are very visible at night in fact to conserve the battery you could keep em on low and still be visible by the boat. or from shore.

Awesome. Cheers
Battery life from 5.5-27 hours??
What is most realistic

The battery life / runtime will depend on whether the Glo-Toob is on High, Low or Strobe. Fyi, if their runtime rating adheres to ANSI FL-1 flashlight testing standards, then runtime [Hours] is defined as the amount of time, rounded to the nearest quarter hour, until output drops below 10%. I would also assume they performed their tests for each mode using a brand new alkaline battery each time to arrive at those values. So, I would guess, Low = 27 hrs, High = 5.5hrs and maybe Strobe = somewhere in between since High & Strobe has the same lumen rating but Strobe *may* draw less since it's not on constant.
In real-world situations, runtime would obviously vary depending on whether the battery is alkaline / lithium / NiMH / NiCd (assuming voltage range allows for different battery types) and whether the battery is new / old / partially depleted, ambient temperature, etc. Personally, I would say YMMV, take those numbers as a general guideline and carry spares with me.
I hope this sort of helps. Sorry for the long-winded response, I was a Flashoholic in a former life. :)

depends on what you use it for and on what setting...i use my red ones for diving on low. ..still havnt had to change the battery ..been about 2 years so far.
With only a single o-ring, I'm not sure I believe the 200m depth rating.

"realizing 200 meter professional waterproof effect". from nextorch web sight. not sure what a professional waterproof effect is...but any who. http://www.nextorch.com/en/index.php/products/153
an LED in a acrylic tube could withstand alot of pressure. 200 meters isnt improbable. 60 meters would be pretty much the max depth for recreational dives, without Mixed Gas. but mines gone below 230 feet ...no issues.
How many lumens are these? I always think it is good for lights to list the lumens in the description but these don't have any info in that regard.

Thanks, that link was helpful.
id go with the white amber or green then.
I use a Glo-Toob on my backpack in the city at night. Helps not getting hit by cyclists or cars. Cool item

I have white and green versions. I mostly use the white.
Yeah, these are great emergency lights. I use my red Lithium Glo-Toob on my bike at night and used to carry around a green and white Lithium Glo-Toob in my messenger bag. I find the green is a bit brighter (than red or blue) but still preserves your low-light / night vision.
Awesome. I have one of these hanging on my dogs leash - hands down the best "don't hit me with your car" light I've been able to find (she hasn't got hit any cars).
