    Bright!

    posted by wushudrew on 06/10/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This thing is bright! Its brightness diminishes with the battery's charge (obviously), but I use rechargeable batteries so its a non-issue. The build quality of this thing is great - it feels sturdy and the metal casing really adds to it. Included strap is ...
    Cons:
    If its not screwed together very tightly, it wont work. Have to do this every once in a while because the threads loosen just a...

    great value and performance

    posted by saltyegg167 on 08/17/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    great combo light allows you to either run on one single AA or 2 AA for better run time and more brightness with the extention tube (included). The 5 modes works well and the light is very bright! this is a water proof light with a clicky switch in the back
    Cons:
    nothing to report in this section

    Pros:

    5-mode Cree, very useful light

    posted by jabart7 on 01/31/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good choice of brightness levels for high/med/low modes. High is very bright, esp with 2 AA batteries. Starting at Medium seems a good choice. Interface is user friendly once you understand the process, but not very intuitive for the first time user. I li...
    Cons:
    Strobe and SOS not very useful and makes the switching more complex. Switch is very touchy when on so you can get unwanted mod...

    Works Great!

    posted by demented_demon on 01/04/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Good Construction I think the Flashlight needs more lubrication for smooth removal of the parts but it's just me, Can always get some Heatsink grease to the job from DX, It's very Bright, Probably brighter than my 12 Volt Dolphin Torch.
    Cons:
    It doesn't remember the last Setting you Used.

    Pros:
    My best flashlight....
    Cons:
    Starts with the next cycle where switched off! Bothersome: Why not start either always in medium mode, or remember the last mode?
