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

    Pros:

    -Great value
    -Really nice drop in module, it flashes when cell voltage drops to about 3.2V, and then turns off.
    -Nice typeII quality, thick feeling and very uniform. anodize.
    -Quality feel and heft
    -Tailstands with a nice anti-roll bezel
    -Bezel is $urefire compatible, and with the brushed aluminum ring looks stunning.
    -O-rings everywhere
    -Clean/smooth lanyard holes

    Cons:

    -Bezel O-ring is too loose and does not engage sugly between the body and bezel.
    -Tailcap current conducts through the threads.
    -"Sticky" feeling click switch. When I push on it, it makes a "creeking/squeeking" sound.
    -Tailcap does not fit my SF-6P, so the light overall is not entirely SF compatible.

    OtherThoughts:

    -With a non-IMR 16340 cell it draws .95A.
    -Run times are about 20-25 minutes from Ultrafire blue 16340 cells.
    -Ceiling bounce comparing it with my other lights, I would way its right around ~160 Lumens.
    -I added copper foil around the drop in module to help conduct heat.

    Bottomline:

    Great value overall, happy with my purchase. For $13 I am really surprised at the quality, heft and solid feel.
