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

    Pros:
    Very bright Clear white light (not "bluish" + not "yellowish") 3 useful modes (with different brightness: high/mid/low) memory (resumes lighting from last mode - which was when device was turned off)
    Cons:
    "SOS" signal is very-very slow for normal people to recognize what does really mean that strange blinking ... 2 unnec...

    Good upgrade, good driver

    posted by Culverjoe on 04/12/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The driver works flawlessly. Many cheap drivers flicker on lower output settings, or are inconsistent on how they changed modes, but this worked great! I pulled the driver out in favor of a two mode, and it was very nicely built. Two boards, lots of electro...
    Cons:
    driver only pulled 860mA. But not the worst thing in my G2 due to heat dissipation characteristics of the nitrolon housing. tw...

    works with my Huntlight FT-01

    posted by ponger on 07/13/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Fit my Huntlight FT-01 (Luxeon III T-bin) with protected 18650 easily after removing outer spring - Significantly brigher spot and spill than my Fenix L2D P4 with textured reflector - whiter tint than my Fenix (which is greenish) - does have mode memory, ...
    Cons:
    - mode memory suffers from classic "off by one" error (i.e. it starts in the next mode in the cycle as noted by previ...

    Good and Bad

    posted by 1dash1 on 07/09/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Reasonably well-built, no obvious manufacturing flaws, all 5 modes work, switching between modes by clicking the on-off tail switch worked every time, good white color, low and medium brightness okay, high is less than the Q5 single mode.
    Cons:
    (1) No memory, the light always progresses to the next mode when turned back on. It doesn't matter how long the light has been...

    First review for 5-Mode R2

    posted by Happyguy on 07/02/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    After repeatedly testing this dropin here are my results: - Good build quality (soldering etc) - I really like "usefull" modes so like High-Mid-Low (but see my comments on Cons) - Easy to use and fits in my Ultrafire / Romisen flashlights like als...
    Cons:
    - No memory for last used mode - No brightness difference of the modes Mid and Low, maybe the driver of my Dropin is defective?...
