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

    Pros:

    + nice C1 body;
    + nice black finish and true glass lens;
    + True XML;
    + black o-rings present, perfectly fitted and lubricated;
    + true 1400 mA driver NANJG 101-AK-A1, originally has 5 modes, but can be modded to 3-mode (Hi-Mid-Low) with only bulb of solder;
    + due to LED datasheet, seems like 510 lumens almost true(maybe 400-450 in real life);
    + almost perfectly aligned modes (~10-40-100%);
    + wide bright hotspot without artifacts;

    Cons:

    - bad heat transfer - typical P60 hosts problem;
    - not perfect tailcap thread;
    - SOS and strobe modes are useless for me.

    OtherThoughts:

    This is very nice torch. Good for modding, and really good for instant use out-of-the-box. Apply some copper\aluminium foil to drop-in, lube threads and o-rings, maybe mod the driver and you will get nearly perfect torch.

    Bottomline:

    Buy it. For 20 bucks you can't go wrong. Quality\price ratio is very high.
