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

Pros:
I don't like unnecessary modes but the memory function on this makes it a cool feature instead of a nuisance.
If it was attached to a bike, the slow strobe would be good and the fast strobe is really good for drawing attention, so it would be great for emergencies.
It's a bright as you would expect.
Cons:
It was hard to find a good casing for this. It was slightly larger than I thought (although, to be fair, the dimensions are given) and I ended up filing it down and putting a thread on it (to properly heatsink it) but having done that it does a fantastic job.
Other:
It is well built and sturdy - perfect for modding a lower powered torch, although I found most torches that it fits are more expensive than an equivalent ready-made torch.
Bottomline:
It's good!
