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

Pros:
very bright at high 0,85A it outshines my 14500 Dexlight (running @ 1,25A)or my Rexlight and my Fenix P3D. The coating is very good (better than standard HAII)You (almost)can sharpen a knife on it. the build was better than expected (led had a heatsink double springs. glow in the dark switch rubber. glass lens. good centered Cree (not yellow 4 bond wires). stable lightoutput
Cons:
It will roll of a table
Can't stand on it's back
You have to press the switch pretty far and hard and there is a lot of play (I prefer a faster tighter switch)front threads are a bit rough.
uses PWM on med and low (pretty high but noticeable)
rough soler job at some places (but OK)
Other:
I like the crazy fast strobe (your pets will hate you for it)
Bottomline:
with a fresh battery:
low: 0,25A
med: 0,55A
High:0,85A (but brighter than others on 1,25A
great light!
