Pros:
This review is based on comparison to the Neutron 1A, both with blue HK 14500s.
surprisingly, this light's ceiling bounce appears nearly as bright as the Thrunite. This is impressive seeing that the Neutron recently tested at 450 actual lumens out the face on 14500. That being said, i feel the "350" rating of the G10 is quite accurate.
color output does not seem green, blue or magenta, but a Pure white.
This light definitely out throws both my D10 and my Neutron, all on 14500.
Cons:
no initial issues
Other:
glad that the manufacturer advertises this as taking 14500, although i plan on watching heat carefully because one can only imagine the XPG is being driven quite hard to keep up with the XML in the Neutron.
If it dies on 14500, i'm not even out 15 bucks and the fun factor was worth it.
Bottomline:
would Surely be with the best output/throw lights on selfbuilt's 14500 capable 1AA roundup.. at about 1/4 the price.
