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

    Pros:

    Ridiculously bright Q5 emitter. with 14500 batteries. Near-perfect beam, one of the best I've seen from a Cree with minor imperfections. Awesome build quality - no flaws whatsoever in mine, built FAR better then my Minimag LED. Solid, with no rattle yet fairly lightweight. Glow in the dark rings\switch a nice touch. 6 modes perfectly implemented.

    Cons:

    Light gets slightly hot during use. Clip isn't as nice as some others. So small it gets lost fairly easily.

    Bottomline:

    If your looking for a powerfull smallish light sub-40$, get this light. Every person I showed it to was amazed at the brightness. The hotspot is fairly large but very, VERY bright. Made the mistake of looking into it when I first turned it on - the spots didn't fully clear up for hours. It lights up a wide swath the forest 100+ feet from my doorstep, bright enough to pick out small animals like rabbits and our cat in the middle of the night. Runtime is great on the 14500 batteries; for 12$, you can get a charger and a 2 pack that will last a long time.
