Pros:
This is a very nifty little light! It's small, lightweight and looks great. It produces a decend amount of light for the size and runtimes are great due to the 18650 batteries. I also like the look&feel of it! Much smoother compared to all these show-off designs around.
Cons:
The build quality could be a bit better. I.e. the o-rings are rather low quality and got squeezed out of the groove. Just use some silicone oil an you'll be fine... (And maybe order some spares)
Other:
I use mine mainly for biking. Combined with: - some solid 18650 batteries i.e. sku.20392 - a minimalistic charger i.e. sku.13820 - and a bike mount sku.31871
Bottomline:
I hat two Fenix P3Ds which I exchanged for these. The main reason was the incredible amount of CR123A primaries they used up. Using rechargeable batteries is a lot cheaper in the long run. With lights like these on DX there is no reason to buy extremely expensive Brands like Fenix. I just wish they made a decent headlight like Zebralight!
