    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    -good build quality
    -feels solid, heavy and expensive in the hand
    -glass lens
    -not one cheap plastic part
    -metal reflector

    Cons:

    -hard to solder a case connection to the pill with regular soldering iron, needs a few tricks to do that
    -cr123a batteries (DX) shake a bit, but contact / conductivity to spring I hotglued in place is good.

    OtherThoughts:

    -excellent host for lasers. I made a phr built (see photos).
    -maybe buy another one for more great flashlight style builts?

    Bottomline:

    for $10,90 , you get an expensive looking and feeling host for nice diy projects.
