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

Lots of little extras:
-glow o-ring inside reflector/tailcap.
-metal reflector/pill is removable
-clip is removable
-clicky is removable (from inside )
-removable from pill (screws)
-smooth transition from spot to flood (no donuts)
- on AA the high and low are the same intensity
(Unable to confirm a difference with 14500)
-a larger than other AA lights
-reverse clicky switch
-very slight blue tint to the LED
-on AA's the lumens are more like 120 lumens
-hot spot is not as tight as EZAA
-Good light for moders as components are easily removed
-14500 is a nice option for the light
-anodization was same for body and tail cap.
-Clicky has a nice crisp feel to it, and is nicely recessed for EDC
Nice light, slightly overpriced, but worth the changes that can be easily done later to the light.
