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

Pros:
Very bright, similar brightness of my Fenix P3D, but more than half the price.
Assault Bezel what I am looking for, it is really sharp.
Cons:
Built quality not 100%:
The Driver circuit come loose after 2-3 times drop, can be easily solder back, sandpaper/file the brass/copper body, then solder the driver PCB.
The smooth ring was broken when I received it, but can be repair with a super-glue.
SOS mode is actually SOSOSOSOSOSO not SOS SOS SOS
Other:
You can run very long with 18650, I tested strobe mode, more than 4 hours and it is still blinking before I charge it (not protected), so it could strobe of maybe 6-7 hours with my 8 years 18650 taken out from HP Jonarda PDA.
Bottomline:
It works and very bright to keep as a light in your car.
As your safety strobe for car parking on the round site.
