Pros:
Excellent lamp. With a battery 18650 weighs 160 g in total. Rubber tape around the head soft and of sufficient length, the rubber part that holds the lamp excellent. Very well siting on my head. Excellent switch.
Cons:
No memory driver with three degrees-300mA, 1600 mA - which is too much, and blinking is useless. I replaced the original with driver Sku 6190 http://dx.com/p/5-mode-1000ma-7135-circuit-board-for-cree-and-ssc-emitters-6190 so I have 40mA, 200 mA and 1000 mA. It is a very simple operation.
Other:
At maximum power -1000mA no overheating lamps.
Bottomline:
Excellent lamp.
