Pros:
Really bright, no idea on the lumens, but then again neither to they, the box, literature and description on DX all say different things. Batteries are decent and keep it on full brightness for over 2 hours. Light is well constructed and solid
Cons:
Battery compartment is not the best. Has a rubber cover but not a tight seal and I wouldnt trust in the rain. It doesnt hold the batteries securely and they can come loose.
Other:
Not used the charger. I might work fine but is so light, there cant be much in it and i wouldnt trust it. Recommend getting quality 18650 separately and using that
Bottomline:
It has its flaws, but for the money its a great piece of kit
