    This Light is BRIGHT!

    posted by ColdSteel on 10/06/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This light is incredible. The build is fabulous, the light output is staggering and it makes for an excellent addition to a bugout bag. The best PRO about this light is that it puts out a lot of light from an AA battery. This and a bunch of alkaline AA batt...
    Cons:
    The downside is that for indoors the human eye doesn't need BRIGHT, and this is too bright for standard indoor use. So a low se...

    Pathetic With AA

    posted by ColdSteel on 09/20/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Light can use AA if you're in a pinch or don't have 14500 batteries lying around. It also is fairly bright, has multiple modes and glow in the dark "O" rings.
    Cons:
    Pathetic if AA batteries are used. The glow in the dark switch isn't bright enough to be practical.

    Much Better Than Expected

    posted by ColdSteel on 08/22/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This light provides a great deal of spill and works well with alkaline batteries. It provides even more light with the 14500 battery, but plenty with the AA.
    Cons:
    The wrist strap is ridiculous, but can be removed.

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

    Pros:
    Light is a brilliant white with good throw and acceptable spill. Construction seems to be very solid, and the light is able to use both rechargeable/lithium 123A batteries and 18650 rechargeables.
    Cons:
    The light does not come with instructions, and there's nothing to indicate battery polarity nor how to access the two modes. Th...

    Handy Device, but What About Refills?

    posted by ColdSteel on 03/31/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Writes very well as a pen, always a plus! Handy as a backup data device, especially photos. Easy to carry.
    Cons:
    Multi-files write slow. Inkwell for pen is very short to allow USB room. No apparent refills for pen.

    Best Deal on the Net

    posted by ColdSteel on 11/06/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This light is the brightest light in my collection. Throws from here to eternity with plenty of sidespill. Beam looks like a round spotlight. And it's a real MRV.
    Cons:
    As wonderful as this light is, and regardless of how good the light is, it's not the most practical. It's a good tactical light...
