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

Pros:
Small size. Really handy, and nice spot. Just 3 modes, High, low and strobo. GREAT! I prefer than 5 modes. Good power, nice flood. Great looking. Has o-ring on every thread. Español: Tamaño pequeño. Muy manejera. Luz homogenea. Es bonita. Tiene juntas toricas en cada rosca. If this flashlight has a good heatsink will be near perfect. I have two of this light, but last recived dead after few days. I think will be because bad heatsink desing.
Cons:
Not very fine threads, doesn't look very durable. Really bad heatsink desing for a P7. Aluminum is quite thin, does not feel solid in your hand. Feel cheap in your hand. One of two dead after a few days. Probably driver, I need to check. Not grease in thread. Clean and grease. Thread of tailswitch are very short. Risk of cross-thread. Español: Las roscas no son muy buenas, no parecen muy resistentes. El disipador es realmente malo para un p7. No hace contacto. El aluminio es muy fino, no se siente solida en la mano. Se siente como una linterna barata. Una de las 2 que pedi ha muerto al cabo de unos pocos dias. Creo que es el driver, tengo que comprobarlo. Las roscas no tienen grasa. Limpialas y engrasalas. Las roscas del tapon son muy cortas y algo dificiles de enroscar, ten cuidado o puedes roscarlas mal y romperlas.
Other:
Bottomline:
Probably, if you can fix the heatsink desing, and take care of thread (grease it, please), this flashlight will near perfect. Really handy, with great power and spot, and 3 mode. But if you not fixt it, go for another. If you spend a few dollars more you will buy a better lights. Español: Probablemente, si pudieses arreglar el problema del calor, y tienes cuidado con las roscas (engrasalas, de verdad), esta linterna podria ser casi perfecta. Muy manejable, pequeña, con una buena potencia y buena luz, ah, y 3 modos. Pero si no puedes arreglar los fallos, vete a por otra linterna. Por unos pocos dolares mas puedes encontrar linternas mejor acabadas en todos los sentidos.
