  • Very short glow duration!

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

    Pros:

    Direct replacement for the caps used by many of the flashlights sold here at DX. Makes for a nice contrasting color, especially on black flashlights (I actually prefer this color to orange or red).

    Cons:

    These things remind me of the GITD hands in my Armitron watch: bright initial glow, no stamina. Seriously, in order to get ANY kind of glow you pretty much have to shove them right into a 60W incandescent for about a minute, and even then, the you'll be lucky to get 30 seconds worth of full glow after that.

    Nope, sorry, as far as GITD performance goes, it's a wash. Again, these make for a nice contrasting color setup with black flashlights, nothing more.

    OtherThoughts:

    These caps (as well as those in other colors), have a molded center post inside to negate the need for a spacer between the cap and the clicky switch. It's very likely that you'll have to trim a millimeter or two in order to achieve an ideal fit for your particular application. Trimming the post is actually easy: you just have to turn the cap inside out to expose the post, trim it with a straight edge cutter (careful!), and then turn it back outside in.

    For the record, these will fit the UF C3 and 606A. In fact, with the 606A, it's virtually a much-have upgrade, given its mediocre "OEM" tailcap setup.

    Bottomline:

    Get these if you're looking to spruce up the appearance of your (black) flashlight. Just don't expect much in the way of any usable GITD performance.
