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

    Pros:

    Very bright. Noticeably brighter than XRE Q5 in similar setup/drive current. I have been running mine for awhile now without any of the problems other members have posted.

    Cons:

    It does get warm. I would be worried to run this for extended periods of time (>30min). The heat transfer from the dropin to the body probably isn't that great since it is just metal on metal (no thermal paste), so with the body getting really hot, I know the LED must be scorching.

    OtherThoughts:

    I have not run this light for more than 15 minutes at a time because I am worried at how hot it gets.

    Bottomline:

    Get this light. For $14 it is a great "wow" light. Very impressive output.
