    Great little flashlight

    posted by LASERgenGibelli on 12/05/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's a great and beautiful flashlight, great for your DIY projects since you don't have to waste money buying the led and driver board that you won't use on your project. I used it to build a 1,2W 445nm blue laser pointer and it works great. It has a great ...
    Cons:
    It's a little bit too small and makes poor heatsinking.

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

    Pros:
    These are very nice! I actually purchased an Aurora c6 light before i ever ordered these, and these showed up with the same body. The pictures show an all black host, but the two that i received both said Aurora on one side and Cree on the other. Check out ...
    Cons:
    The lights say aurora on it, which could be a con if you wanted a blank host, but i think it looks good and am happy with it!

    Cons:
    the included heatsink is pretty thin for a good heat dissipation so this one is a goner ... build your own and you won't miss ;...

    Pros:
    I realy like the size of this housing, also the shape is nice, fits great in to anyones hand. The threads are well tapped and the seals are ok. Clicky seems to work as it is suposed to and is sealled nicely. Reflector provides an excelent throw and a nice ...

    Installing the driver pill isn't great. It takes a small, fragile, ring that has to be pushed in to the fitting. If the size ...
