  • "Cool" Flashlight with a tendency to overheat

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

    Pros:

    For just under $34 this is a bargain. This is a very, very solidly built Flashlight which produces an impressive amount of light. All threads are nicely cut, with (mostly double) lubricated O-rings in every joint. Good beamer with with moderate spill. I especially like the Titanium Grey finish.

    Cons:

    Thermally this light is not very well laid out, causing a tendency to overheat. However, there is an easy way to alleviate this problem by filling the void between the emitter/reflector subassembly and the Flashlight body with Aluminium foil. Approximately 2 meters of standard kitchen foil can be squeezed in for improved heatsinking.

    OtherThoughts:

    Build quality is really worth five stars if it weren't for the heatsinking issue. But as said, this can be overcome.

    It's quite heavy. I would have liked it if it had come with a clip for carrying the light on my belt when not in use.

    Bottomline:

    At this price, this light is pretty amazing. If you want it to last for a long time, make sure to fix the heatsinking issue.
