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

    Pros:

    +P60 host

    +Small-ish size. Strike bezel adds size I don't need.

    +Romisen seems to always have good build quality.

    Original module worked fine on 2 X RCR16340, 1 X 18650 (dimmer), 2 X CR123.

    Emitter had a SSC like green-ish tint, only noticable next to a Q5-WC though.

    It made for splendid CR. YMMV tint lottery and all ;)

    Original module also had hella heatsinking on it, most I've ever seem on a P60.

    It was ribbed al the way down to the base and was actually to large in diameter to fit into another P60 host. (wish china would standardize a little more)

    TF protected 18650 fit fine.

    Cons:

    Glass lens is quite thin (compared to more premium lights) and I would have expected better from Romisen.

    Bezel ring is also thin and seems light it might dent and break glass if it took a header. OTOH, glass is cheap :)

    NOT TWO MODE :(

    O ring shifts if head is disassembled and you need to pay attention when putting it back together.

    OtherThoughts:

    Between the thin bezel ring and fact that the O ring likes to get all wonky, I sealed the head (bezel ring to lens to head) with a little RTV.

    I upgraded the P60 module and don't see myself taking it apart again anytime soon.

    YMMV

    I added sku 11074 and sku 5907 to make a 9000+ lux 18650 oriented project.

    VERY impressive and good runtime.

    Bottomline:

    Handsome light.

    Versatile voltage input.

    Romisen rocks the low dollar light house !

    nicest heatsinking I've seen on a P60 reflector.

    I'd buy again in a minute.
