Pros:
A good unit to fit in the surefire. Powermodes are handy. After refocussing a nice throw. No heat-dissipation troubles. Usable for many things like bikelight, in cars, boats and even home, to build your own led-moneysaving-lightsystems. In that case, replace the driver with the DX 3W 110-230VAC driver.
Cons:
The lightoutput is, when used 2X CR 123 MUCH HIGHER than with one 18650 or 17670, the driver is not indifferent for changing voltage within its range.
Other:
For using it in flashlight the modes are convenient, for other applications it is not. A small refocussing by turning the driver more loose gives much better throw.
Bottomline:
A basic part to make many lightapplications possible. Light is pure white (6000Kelvin) and produces almost a continu-spectrum what TL and energysaver lights don't do, they only give mostly 4 smallband colours.
