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

Pros:
-good build quality -feels solid, heavy and expensive in the hand -glass lens -not one cheap plastic part -metal reflector
Cons:
-hard to solder a case connection to the pill with regular soldering iron, needs a few tricks to do that -cr123a batteries (DX) shake a bit, but contact / conductivity to spring I hotglued in place is good.
Other:
-excellent host for lasers. I made a phr built (see photos). -maybe buy another one for more great flashlight style builts?
Bottomline:
for $10,90 , you get an expensive looking and feeling host for nice diy projects.
