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

Pros:
- The build quality of the UV drop in is very good, it exceeded my expectations.
- Produces a perfect beam beyond 20 cm.
- Equally bright using 18650's and 16340's!
Cons:
- The build quality of the host is poor. it has a very stiff clicky and it is causing flickering due to contact issues in the tailcap.
- Donut shaped beam inside of 20 cm from aperture.
Other:
I doubt it really is 3 watt as it is equally bright as another uv light I've got that is rated at 1 watt.
Will show pee stains on your carpet.
Along with a lot of other things! *hint*
Bottomline:
The uv drop in is GREAT, the host not so much.
