    Excellent alternative to sealed packs

    posted by EdFromOhio on 05/08/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Biggest "Pros" are that 1> This allows you to use known quality cells, and 2> When the cells are charged outside of this housing, you don't have any balancing issues. Compact design, easily replaces sealed packs.
    Cons:
    Loading them is a little weird. Be sure to follow the small red instructions on the inside of the housing to know which way to...

    Excellent batteries for a great price (on sale)

    posted by EdFromOhio on 05/07/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Excellent value 18650 protected cell. These are top-quality, and when on sale, for less than questionable "x-Fire" batteries. Got them at 40% off which made them a steal.
    Cons:
    A bit larger than 18mm x 650mm so you might have troubles in a tight-fitting application.

    Great battery, if you ever receive it

    posted by EdFromOhio on 05/07/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    One of the best batteries currently made. Doesn't overhype the mAh rating - it simply delivers. The price, when it's on sale for 30% or more.
    Cons:
    Larger than 18mm x 650mm due to the protection circuitry. The price when it's not on a true sale.

    Great concept, terrible execution

    posted by EdFromOhio on 04/17/2014

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

    Pros:
    Accepts many inputs. Compact.
    Cons:
    Basically, all of the important specs are wrong. Advertised: 640x480 native resolution, actual 320x240. Advertised: 500 lumens...

    Overall, a great battery pack but not 8000mAh

    posted by EdFromOhio on 02/03/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    High capacity, works with many of the bike lights sold here, comes with a nylon pouch. Much higher capacity than most 18650 packs.
    Cons:
    Actual capacity is not 8000mAh as listed.

    A nice light, but with some flaws

    posted by EdFromOhio on 01/20/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very nice looking light other than a scuff mark in my bezel. Easy to use electronic switch as opposed to the more common mechanical tail switch. Compact design.
    Cons:
    Not as bright as other 5 x XM-L lights I have, probably because this says it's driven at 2300mA instead of the more common 2800...

    This is an awesome little thrower

    posted by EdFromOhio on 01/17/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Somewhat compact design, excellent fit & finish. Lots of light for such a small light.
    Cons:
    A little too big to toss in your pants pocket. Maybe a coat pocket, though.

    posted by EdFromOhio on 01/17/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nice packaging, decent capacity, good price.
    Cons:
    Not close to even the "actual" capacity listed in the advertising, let alone the manufacturer's claim of 900mAh.

    A very bright, tiny light

    posted by EdFromOhio on 01/17/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very, very small. Very bright for the size. Uses AAA batteries which are very common in the US. Simple 1-mode for non-flashaholics.
    Cons:
    Machining is a bit rough, but it's functional.

    Slightly bulky but works good

    posted by EdFromOhio on 09/24/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Fits in a small pocket, on a belt or even in a pocket. I've held it in my hand while walking and it counted my steps. Reliable so far. 4 out of 4 working with no problems, although I did order a spare because the price was decent.
    Cons:
    A little bulky. Can't pick the color you want. Not waterproof. Takes 7-10 days for these to leave the warehouse. Why?
