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

    Pros:

    + Perfectly sized. Every single one of mine arrived exactly the same within a couple of thousands.

    + CHEAP! A great value

    + Clear glass, and minimal optical refraction. Not lab quality, but close.

    Cons:

    - One of mine had a chip in it. Packaging is to blame here.



    - Packaging was minimal at best.



    - Some edges were sharp--watch those fingers kids!

    OtherThoughts:

    The packaging was really terrible. Pink bubblebag with the glass put inside, wrapped up in a rough tube with tape put on it. I'm going to guess this is the reason why one of mine had a chip in the side of it.



    And some of the edges were sharp--enough to cause a minor cut on my thumb. This was only on 2 of the 9. I am not counting the chipped one.

    Bottomline:

    Great deal. Buy some now, so that if you come across a 24mm flashlight you can replace the plastic with real glass. No more scratched/cloudy plastic!
