    No-brainier if you need a card holder

    posted by Boondongle1723 on 11/04/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Exellent price. Looks as good as more expensive brands. Build quality is good, not exceptional.
    Cons:
    Nothing in particular. Not sure what metal is used in the construction, but mine has acquired one scratch and one dent so far. ...

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

    Pros:
    Nice enough for everyday use. Comes very sharp. Has an interesting look. Feels good in the hand.

    Decent cheap case

    posted by Boondongle1723 on 09/18/2010 Certified Owner

    Pros:
    * Inexpensive * Unusual design * Tight fit

    Great pocket knife for all around use

    posted by Boondongle1723 on 05/19/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    * Very sharp, and ceramic blade should hold its edge longer than a steel blade. * Very smooth opening action. Can easily be flicked open with one hand. * Very lightweight when compared to a steel knife of a comparable size.
    Cons:
    * No thumb knob for one-handed opening (see my note above, though about one-handed opening). * Wood is a bit rough, could use s...

    Brightest 10440 light I've found so far

    posted by Boondongle1723 on 05/19/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    * Brightest light I've found in the 10440/AAA form factor at a decent price. Outperforms even other Tank007 lights I own. * Good finish and texturing. * Carabiner clip offers multiple methods of daily carry. At first, I was thinking I'd connect the light to...
    Cons:
    None that I can think of.

    Nice little light

    posted by Boondongle1723 on 05/19/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    * Very small size, easily fits in your pocket. * Acceptable brightness with AAA, though a 10440 gives a noticeable increase. * Good knurling and finish. * Wrist strap is actually large enough to go around your wrist, which often isn't the case with cheap, ...
    Cons:
    * Can not tailstand. * Not as bright as other AAA/10440 lights.

    Decent light for everyday carry

    posted by Boondongle1723 on 05/19/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    * Can use 2xAAA, 1xAAA, or 1x10440. * Clip is secure, and removable. * Decent brightness. * Good knurling and finish. * Very pocketable. * Can tailstand.
    Cons:
    * Current regulation is a bit low...I'd rather see more light with a smaller runtime. Even with that, the current is a bit high...

    Decent deal, mediocre quality

    posted by Boondongle1723 on 05/19/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a decent enough tool for the price.
    Cons:
    The build quality is a bit mediocre, but if you only need these every so often, you should be fine. If it's something you'd use...

    Cheap slow charger, useful for low mAh batteries

    posted by Boondongle1723 on 05/16/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    * Charges batteries slowly. This is important for batteries with low mAh ratings and/or low charging rate ratings. While this does mean that it'll take more than a day to charge a single 18650, it is perfect for prolonging the lifespan of small batteries li...
    Cons:
    * I've already stated it as a pro, but this charger is very slow, which is fine if that is what you are looking for. However, i...
