    Excellent batteries!!!

    posted by DDN84 on 12/24/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -They are somewhat slimmer than my grey TF18650 2400mAh (1 grey cell doesn't fit in 2 of my flashlights, but these black/red cells have no problem at all) -Genuine capacity of at least 2400mAh, hold their voltages extremely well at high loads. I have a 5A M...
    Cons:
    None at this point

    posted by DDN84 on 02/11/2009 Certified Owner

    Pros:
    -Very compact, looks quite nice -Not expensive -comes with a lanyard and holster -On 14500 battery, it is direct drive, probably as bright as one can get from a P4 -On 1 AA battery it lasts for several hours -2 good o-rings -glass lens

    -The light flickers out of the package, I use a paper clip but the issue isn't completely gone. I wasn't surprised when it flic...

    Great budget thrower!

    posted by DDN84 on 01/10/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -Bright and efficient Cree P4 -Accepts 2x 16340 (RCR123) or 18650 (17670 too if you have), all my trustfire cells fit without any problem, very versatile. -Quite bright (when running on 2x 16340 cells it is brighter than on a single 18650 cell), overall bri...
    Cons:
    -Using 2x16340 will rattle a little -being designed as a thrower, the hotspot is too small to use up close. -anodizing is nice ...

    Excellent product!

    posted by DDN84 on 11/18/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -Work with my 4GB SD, 4GB SDHC and 8GB micro SDHC (with adapter) -Quickly recognized in windows xp -Write speed is very good, I got 15.5 MB/s with my 8GB micro SDHC level 4 card (with adapter), read speed is even faster -Plugging in and out of the cards are...
    Cons:
    SD cards are thin but large so this adapter will probably take space of more than 1 available usb port.

    Fantastic light!

    posted by DDN84 on 04/07/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -This light is very bright on a RCR123A battery, initially brighter than RC-F4 but as it's direct driven (no busted circuit I guess), the brightness drops overtime. The overall output is awesome, a tight and smooth hot spot for decent throw, yet very bright...
    Cons:
    -It's quite big for a CR123A-sized light (large head and long body). -Because it is direct driven, it can't provide a constant...

    This is one of the best lights I have!

    posted by DDN84 on 03/22/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -It's very very bright (according to some reviews on CPF, it gives ~3400 lux@1m) -Takes from 3v to 8v so can be used either with 2x RCR123A or 1x 17670 batteries -Fits well with Trustfire protected RCR123A cells. -The anodize is excellent, looks expensive -...
    Cons:
    -reflector and lens are glued to the head -hotspot is not that well defined -has problem fitting protected 17670 batteries

    Good charger for a good price

    posted by DDN84 on 02/29/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -It's a must have for your torches, charges many types of lithium-ion rechargeable batteries. For its versatility, it is cheap. -Does not get hot at all, stay either cool or slightly warm while charging (depends on your room temperature and ventilations) -I...
    Cons:
    -one of the LED on my charger wasn't put in the right position, looks off the track :/. But at least, it still works -It makes ...

    Good battery

    posted by DDN84 on 02/26/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -Decent price -safe since it's protected -works as a replacement for 2xCR123A in some cases. (The diameter of each cell is slightly larger than CR123A, I'm guessing it's about 0.5mm bigger) -the build quality is pretty good
    Cons:
    -a bit too big (in term of diameter) -takes long to recharge (mine takes over 4 hours) -the capacity is much likely to be overr...

    Great toy!

    posted by DDN84 on 02/02/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -Good range, about 190 cm -price is cheap for its function -sensor detects motions well -very smart, only switches on led in low light condition so batteries won't run out because of too many motions during the day. -auto-off after about 15 sec of no motion...
    Cons:
    -battery compartment is tight, making it difficult to insert the batteries. -No ON/OFF switch -falls quite easily, needs better...
