  • Excellent value

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Bright and a good flood for close up work.

    Focusses well to a small spot.

    Quality on the whole very good, doesn't look or feel cheap.

    18650 are excellent Li-ion rechargeable batteries which deserve to take over all high drain applications, cheap too!

    Cons:

    Tilt is more or less only up or down although they are well chosen so this isn't really a complaint.

    Tilt mechanism appears flimsy although is better designed than one on a much older unit I had which broke after three years.

    There is no dimmer function on the unit I received although run time is very good on high and recharging is simple and convenient.

    OtherThoughts:

    US plug although a small adapter is available for pennies on DX. I have a smart charger for 18650's from DX anyway and will probably use this as it works reall well.

    Bottomline:

    There are many other units similar on DX but don't be put off this one just because it doesn't run on AA or AAA as 18650 Li-Ion are the best there is.
