  • Poor quality control

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

    Pros:

    Good threads on the body, nice design, good finish and easy turning threaded parts. P60 sized pill makes it easy to upgrade.

    Cons:

    Light worked only intermittently for a few minutes then died completely. The problem is the LED was only held onto the heatsink/board with a sticky piece of paper laying over top of it. Maybe other ones are soldered but mine was not. When it quit, if you pushed the LED with the lens off the flashlight it would light up. Because of the poor contact I think the LED got too hot and the clear domed lens on the actual LED fell off!!!

    OtherThoughts:

    DX only wants to give me a $6 credit or send the light back. You can't buy a replacement drop-in for that price and probably the same low quality drop-in.

    Bottomline:

    I wouldn't buy one of these without more reports, the other one isn't good either, or if you don't mind adding your own drop-in, but its not very cost effective then.
