Pros:
i bought this because i currently have a black C3 which i like a lot. puts out around 650 lux on a 1.2 NimH
Cons:
you have to take these lights apart and clean them because there is loose metal inside all of them which probably is residu from making the threads.
i ordered 2 lights and they looked like they both gave out white light.
however compared to eachother and other lights they are different but not that much.
O-rings are dry
threads are loose

O-ring which is suppoed to seal of the head does not do a very good job because there is space between the inside of the head and the o-ring
You can solve this by buying SKU 7319
this is a 18mm o--ring which fits nicely and is a bit thicker than the standard o-ring.
Other:
buy SKU 7319 also to make it water resistant
this is a 18mm o--ring which fits nicely and is a bit thicker than the standard o-ring.
Bottomline:
after cleaning out the light and replacing the o-ring you really got yourself a good light.
you need a very small needlenose plier to open up the light(remove the parts) so you will need this
