Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
-The machining and finish on this is almost perfect -Nicely balanced -O-ring and simple cord lanyard included -Hard anodized finish - WHAT a nasty (even mean) short flashlight, an AMAZING fotoncannon, at short distance almost as dangerous as a laser. Throw is (untill now) unbeatable High quality housing. It is an odd experience when you see this work. * Amazingliy bright sturdy design Fits in hand well great for showing off
Cons:
*Become hot after 1-2 min but doesn't go higher than 50C after 5 min *If battery doesn't have flat top, it will scratch driver. Inverting an unprotected battery could be extremely dangerous *No lube on the threads *Hard to disassembly * -The threads holding the two halves of the flashlight together are not lubed, so a thin coating of silicone grease should be applied to help prevent galling. - As the top is screwed down, the flat part rubs against the battery terminals and the plate gets scratched very quickly.
Other:
Nice flashlight , top of the bill with an unusual form wich gives more light than a headlight from a car even equipped with HID
Bottomline:
Great light for the money. Buy this and you'll definitely have "bragging rights". Just don't leave it on high unattended.
