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

    Pros:

    Item works as stated. If you were to get the wiring mixed up like say wire 2 and 4 on one end, then it will show that by which light sequence goes on.

    Saves tons of time instead of going somewhere to plug your cable in and test for it. If you crimp to make your own cables or are fixing a cable, it does the job

    Cons:

    Plastic housing is thin, but fine -- its not drop resistant.

    Battery doesn't fit properly -- EASY FIX: You'll need a box cutter or an Exacto blade

    Opening the battery compartment cover which goes down -- we'll call that direction South. You'll notice on the West, East and North sides they have a lip for the compartment cover. Trim only the NORTH lip off so its flat/smooth. Now your 9V will fit snugly in.

    OtherThoughts:

    Once you have the battery in, the casing is pretty solid.

    Bottomline:

    As well, the people that complain about the quality you're welcome to purchase the item locally at 10 times the price - theres a reason why we purchase from DealExtreme.

    Also this is a global economy now, 70% of the items we get are made in China or the components or the casings. Doesn't mean buying it locally will be any better quality than buying it on DE.
