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

Pros:
- very good build (feels indestructible) - reasonabl bright light (especially with 14500 battery inside) - considering emmiter and size - will work without flickering AFTER MOD (read on) - suprisingly small - has glowing ring (so you can find it in dark)
Cons:
- tail switch very badly designed (can cause flickering) - can get hot (but that's normal)
Other:
you can AVOID flickering and make it good even for protected 14500 cells by shortening spring in the tail clicky.
Bottomline:
very good light, and after shortening spring it works without any problem on AA and protected 14500. I carry it around all the time.
