    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - Bright ;
    - Good looking ;
    - Light (without batteries) ;
    - 2 modes ;
    - Cheap ;
    - Led is correctly centered in assembly ;
    - Nice flood/throw ratio ;

    Cons:

    - Threads not smooth ;
    - o-rings look like they wont be effective, do not drop it in water... ;
    - Hot. Very hot on high mode use for ~10 minutes ;
    - I think this is direct drive (fade) ;

    OtherThoughts:

    - Little "donut" effect, but having orange-peel reflector hides it a bit ;
    - I will use it mainly on low mode, high mode makes the light too hot ;

    Bottomline:

    Nice 1x18650 P7 light, give a lot of lumens for a reasonable price, 2 modes is nice so you can use in low mode and go to high when you need it, but not for too long.
    Won't regret my buy, its a great flashlight for the price.
