Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Cheap and easy to use. Can use both, the AAA and the 18650 batteries. Its light, easy to work with, has a strong beam. It works great with my GP Rercyco rechargables!
Cons:
There is only one power toggle, and you controll all light modes with it. The problem is, that every time you want to use it in a specific mode (for instance full power) you have to go through all other modes as well (clicking that one button). It does not remember the last setting you had, when you turned it off...
Other:
For rechargable AAAs, it's nice to have a charger, that can charge single cells.
Bottomline:
Fot the price it offers a great bargain. You don't necesserely have to buy the 18650 battery, sience you can use the AAA bateries, available in any country in any store.
