    Pros:

    Very nice flashligt body, i really like the design, seems to be pretty sterdy, comes with pill, o-rings and wriststrap.

    Cons:

    poorly manufactured pill gave me lots of headache, the brass ring that holds the driver pcb was to big, so i had to file it down quite a lot. when i pushed it in by force it bent and i had to file a lot more.

    at the top side of the pill the wires get stuck between the pill and the star causing bad thermal conductivity.

    OtherThoughts:

    I guess you get what you pay for, hopefully the more expensive bodies have better manufacturing tolerances and are better designed.

    Bottomline:

    overall a fun diy project, but be prepared to modify it to get it to work properly
