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

Pros:
- The design of the product is well thought of. - Inclination is adjustable - 2 useful settings, ~50% and 100% settings - Keeps your hands free when working - Strap fit well on me
- Works with both alkaline and rechargeable Ni-MH
Cons:
- Battery compartment is worst I have ever encountered. When the battery holder is put inside the battery compartment it stays there forever. The inside of the compartment is made too tight and also holder have no way of grabbing hold of to remove it.
Other:
I have two of these and both are equally bad regarding the battery compartments. I have modified the inside to allow the holder to slide more easy and also the holder itself was outfitted with a hook.
Bottomline:
When batteries are in place it works well.
Only get it if you don't mind doing some small modifications on the plastic battery holder and inside of the battery compartment
