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

Pros:
Rated this one a 5/5 - its a great torch and works with my 18650 batteries. Beam is damn powerful on full power - using it to light up a PC's innards, its too bright. Soft mode is better. The strobe function is very attention getting, and pulses the torch at full power. Comes with a AA battery adapter
Cons:
I cannot see any except the threads are a bit difficult to get together after you put in a battery. Wont tail stand unless you remove the lanyard.
Other:
Its a light, and a damn bright one on full power - I'm always turning it down to half mode when working on PC's.
Bottomline:
Get one - my friends call it the aircraft landing light coz it is so bright. Strobe could be handy in an emergency situation.
