    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    These lights seems to be bright, of what I can tell. I haven't and will not put these in a car. I plan to isolate them with some clear resin and make a focus assist light for my underwater camera. I noticed that it is quite hard to shoot underwater in the night without focus assisting lights.

    I believe these are bright enough, and they seem to be just a tad too small for my Nikonos SB-105-strobes, but close enough.

    I think these are cheap.

    Cons:

    None so far. For car use, I think they are quite useless, but pimpin' my ride has never been my thing. For a close-up focus assist light I think they are perfect.

    OtherThoughts:

    Car accessories aren't my thing, but photography is, so this seems to be a nice thing to hack. I might make a focus assist with these some day for surface photography also.

    Bottomline:

    For something they aren't desinged for, they seem to be agood buy!
