    Hmm, I don't know

    posted by DukeTh on 09/26/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - The rope has a nice, black satin-like glaze. - When compared to other ropes from the same type, it's a bit cheaper (depending on where you live, I guess). - The rope is stronger than you might think, I think it can hold the 140 kg advertised. I haven't us...
    Cons:
    - When it's used on a rocky surface, the rope damages more quickly than you'd like.

    Useful

    posted by DukeTh on 09/26/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - The product is cheap. - The build quality is quite acceptable, though on the other hand I wouldn't be surprised if the hinges get a bit worn over time. - Very, very useful for protecting your 18650's. Why not spend that extra money on a good protective ca...
    Cons:
    - The case is definitely NOT water proof, so if you're looking for a waterproof case, go for something else. It does protect yo...

    Good thrower - the real deal

    posted by DukeTh on 09/26/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    There might be better throwers on DX that I don't know of (which is probably true), but I sincerely doubt that there other lights with the same value for money as this one. - It throws a lot of light. In my opinion, the effective range is about 120-140 met...
    Cons:
    - WHY, WHY, WHYYY the strobe and SOS modes? DX/producers would sell much more lights if they would remove those crappy modes w...

    Value for money

    posted by DukeTh on 09/26/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    In the land of batteries, there is no such thing as "what you see is what you get" (at least, not on DX). Well, these batteries prove that in this case, what you see IS what you get. - Good value for money. - A lot of reviews and expertise on this...
    Cons:
    - They might get a warm hot when charging.

    Very nice indeed

    posted by DukeTh on 05/23/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - It's very lightweight, mine weighs only 65 grams with AA fitted. - Almost the complete surface is covered with "grip-texture" - The glow in the dark switch is a nice feature - Switching between modes works flawlessly - For it's size, the brighte...
    Cons:
    - I wouldn't miss the strobe/SOS modes if they hadn't been there. But if you use it as a survival light (considered it's sturdi...

    YES, YES and YES

    posted by DukeTh on 05/09/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - It's cheap. And with cheap, I mean cheap. It's nothing compared to regular scales out there in stores. - It comes in a (I guess fake yet) nice black protective sheath. - The scale is easy to work with. - As other reviews suggest as wel, it's actually p...
    Cons:
    - Maybe it should come with some calibration weights (but only if the calibration weights are accurate, of course).

    Useful outdoors

    posted by DukeTh on 05/05/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - It's relatively cheap, compared to what you pay over here (Europe). - This model is one of the larger models on DX, which makes it more easy to hold, and it lasts longer (because firestarters use to wear/"run out", because each time it loses some materia...
    Cons:
    - Although it's cheap, it's still a bit more expensive than other firestarters on DX. - I'm not quite sure how long the plasti...

    Excellent, just as sku.4063

    posted by DukeTh on 05/04/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    All in one kit!!! - First of all, this kit covers both extra flints as a long wick. - The wick has a copper mesh core. - Plenty of stones. - The stones last long. - Compared to the prices I pay here in Europe, it's awfully cheap.
    Cons:
    - I'm not sure whether the wick will last as long as a normal Zippo wick. - The blister packaging looks cheap but who cares. - ...

    Oh. Yes.

    posted by DukeTh on 05/04/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - It's cheap. - There is a "925" silver stamp on it. - It looks very nice, the stripes give it a classy look. In the words of other reviewers: "it doesn't look cheap".
    Cons:
    - I'm not sure whether it really is (coated) silver. I must admit is has more of that silver color, than of stainless steel or ...

    Definately worth it

    posted by DukeTh on 05/04/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Of course, this scale won't be able to replace a professional scale. However, I find this scale very useful though! - It's awfully cheap. - Pocket sized, definately - Although the manual could be a bit more elaborate, it's very easy to use. - It comes with ...
    Cons:
    - There is no calibration weight. Although with DX, you could always wonder if the calibration weight would be accurate... - Th...
