    One of my favorite products, with one flaw

    posted by AbeFM on 03/25/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very bright, very impressive flashlight with minimal outer dimensions
    Cons:
    I'm on my third or fourth one. It's very picky about battery size - they put the LED in backwards, so the spring is on wrong si...

    Makes a great baby toy!

    posted by AbeFM on 08/24/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Rocks! I liked it enough myself, but when I gave it to my (then) 4 month old niece, she went crazy for it. I'm not saying I'd submerge it in water, but, it held up to all sorts of eating and drooling on by the girl. She was mesmerized by the colors, it's t...
    Cons:
    Like all of these, the modes could be laid out different.

    Nice scope with CLOSE focus!

    posted by AbeFM on 06/27/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    First off: This focuses REALLY close. 10" claimed on the side of it, I measured 29cm (11.5") on my unit, but perhaps it's a bit better if you try harder. That's really awesome! I've had many of these spotting scopes, you can't see something across a 10' (3...
    Cons:
    The focusing action is decent, this is a minor complaint, but you can feel stuff moving around, in a couple spots it's just a T...

    Works well so far

    posted by AbeFM on 09/21/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Killz da bugz! Lots of dead little gnats and such. Unfortunately, there aren't many bugs around when I got it, so I can't tell you too much on what percentage it gets. Certainly no bug guts or anything like a zapper, it doesn't command the room. Kills sm...
    Cons:
    As mentioned, it's noisy! Not terrible, but enough I wouldn't want it where I was sleeping. Larger, well insulated bugs (small...

    Fantastic!

    posted by AbeFM on 09/17/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This worked amazing. Certainly NO ONE expects a utility knife to shock them. I got a guy who's brought in a pen and a lighter and all sorts of normal shock stuff. Due to it's large size, you have a firm grip before it goes off, so it gets you very well. The...
    Cons:
    Everyone's right! It totally shattered when the poor guy dropped it. I'm even having trouble putting it back together - I did, ...

    This thing is awesome!

    posted by AbeFM on 09/16/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This thing really works - to the people who think it won't, have you *used* a swifter? I have to stop and clean the pad once in a while, though it still seems to clean, because it's so filled with dirt I didn't know was there. Works amazing on cat hair. Ent...
    Cons:
    The charger is awful. It seems to come off the charger still dead most of the time. A smart charger would make this worth 50% m...

    As advertised, Bright - but too fast!

    posted by AbeFM on 04/21/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    It's really pretty bright! I was concerned it would be too dim - and it won't light up a room, but it's much brighter than other DX RGB lights I've bought. Seems well built, and the lens over the front helps. There are many bulbs in it, which spreads the l...
    Cons:
    The R-G-B cycle time is WAY too short. Perhaps 1.5-2 seconds? It's plain distracting, I put it on at night to take a nap with t...

    Light Doesn't Change Color!

    posted by AbeFM on 04/20/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    It really looks as silly as they claim! Is that a pro? The light seems decent, even in my well lit office, it shows up nicely, and the front face seems to send the light in different directions. Plus, battery powered? Cool!
    Cons:
    OMG! The f'ing light doesn't change color on it's own?? Who makes a RGB light which just sits there being blue? Huh, while sho...

    Great Little Light with loose cap

    posted by AbeFM on 07/24/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This light is really bright, and once I solved the turning-on-in-pocket issue (if that's what it was) the battery life has proven to be quite acceptable. It's very small and lightweight and yes, even tops my old standby DE AAA light from years past.
    Cons:
    The head of my light comes off constantly. The first 4 batteries lasted me maybe two days. I finally squirted some RTV inside...
