Pros:
BRIGHT! I'm happy using this as a bike light. Nice hotspot and side fill, lights up the path or road.
Cons:
Gets a bit hot, so be careful how you mount or use it. I don't mind the extra modes but I run it on high, that's what it's for! :D
Other:

Bottomline:
BRIGHT! I get 2 hours of great runtime using 2ea. 3.6v RCR123A Li-ion rechargeables. It still works after that but the beam is noticeably weaker.
