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

Pros:
-Looks very nice. -Very nice size. -Extremely bright. -Ratio of flood and throw is good. -Uses 18650-cell, so cheap to use as you can recarge cell(s). -Cree MC-E led, which is big +
Cons:
-Gets quite hot quite fast. At 7min I had to stop testing, as it was so hot, that I was afraid it will not be able handle the heat much longer. -Lense holder and some other parts were loose, but easy to fix. -Dark spot in middle, but that is inevitable with this led with some types of reflectors.
Other:
Brighthest led torch I have at the moment. It is not my first choice to camping trips or something like that, but otherwise it is perfect, as long you have fresh cells or you can recharge them somewhere.
Bottomline:
I recommend this to anyone who needs compact and powerful torch!
