    s'ok

    posted by Flav_3 on 04/16/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A ok flashlight for an ok price. Stupid bright for a palm sized light. Accepts many 18650 sizes (fat/long/protected/unprotected/button top or flat). Defn a plus in that category. Easy to switch modes, just double tap the reverse clickie switch. Has m...
    Cons:
    Assembled in a hurry with none or minimal grease on any of the threads, especially the ones at the head. Had to tighten all th...

    Good thermal glue

    posted by Flav_3 on 02/26/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Pure white, sticks well. The thinner the layer, the faster the set time. Greatly improves thermal path Good for potting electronics since it does not conduct electricity. Does not run like some of the other cheaper silicone glues. Comes with applicator.
    Cons:
    As always if the price was better this part would be blank. Other than that, nothing else. This stuff really impressed me.

    DX is sending the wrong ones

    posted by Flav_3 on 01/14/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This will be a review for the 700mA board since that is what dx sent out. It is essentially the same product but with one chip difference. Quiet, constant and easy to solder to. Will run an array of emitters. Does not get too hot.
    Cons:
    I got the ones with only two chips and also waited two moths for arrival. DX did the right thing and fixed the problem though.

    Ehh...

    posted by Flav_3 on 01/14/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The price is about the only good thing here. Also the protection helps with the ease of mind, although I'm not sure how well it works since I didn't test its parameters.
    Cons:
    The deceiving title of 1200mA DX changed its description after I purchased these to the much lower capacity. But not the title...

    Monster thrower

    posted by Flav_3 on 01/14/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Throw, and Tons of it. I'm only using this reflector with an xml(an over driven one) but it has more throw than any HID I've ever seen. I can only imagine what it does with a dedomed one. I have lots of land around the house and at 500 ft this lights up an...
    Cons:
    1. Lack of pill 2. Extreme care must be taken of finish as it will damage fast. 3. Conductivity (this is true with most metal ...

    Cheap

    posted by Flav_3 on 01/14/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap in both sens of the word. I've used one syringe a few times already and still haven't emptied it. As far as how well the thermal transfer is, no clue since I have no way to test it. Not runny nor too thick for use under led stars, pc components etc.
    Cons:
    The syringes come more than half empty. Also I'd suggest retracting the plunger after use so it does not leak. Can't think of ...

    Works well with XML also

    posted by Flav_3 on 11/08/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    this is the OP(orange peel) style, which means more spill and less throw, but trust me when I say that this throws WELL. and gives a very good amount of side spill for when needed up close. With a well driven and well sinked XML, light can reach few hundr...
    Cons:
    Scratches somewhat easily....although most aluminum reflectors do, use a slight damp tissue to LIGHTLY clean if really really ...

    thumbs up

    posted by Flav_3 on 10/21/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Another satisfied customer of this product. I'm using it with an 18650 Cell to power an xml led in a p60 reflector ( sku5937). Fits perfectly in the pill and very easy to solder. Does not heat up almost at all after long use and produces no noise.
    Cons:
    Only con...if at all is the size of the leads. But did not bother me since I used it with an xml and this is well underdriven s...

    why not less for a bit lower price.

    posted by Flav_3 on 10/21/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I honestly only needed one of these but the price is pretty good so I went ahead and ordered these anyway. Not too thick so it won't gap the bezel from the rest of the head. Nice and clean and came scratch free despite the poor packing . Will have enough on...
    Cons:
    Poorly packaged. DX just threw these loosely in a small bubble wrap bag. They rattle around inside the bag hitting up against e...

    so so with xml

    posted by Flav_3 on 10/21/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Decent reflector for the price. Came with no scratches or major defects. Will fit an array of lights and/or projects. Considering purchasing more, however DX should include the spring if pictured, mine also did not come with one.
    Cons:
    NO hotspot(very minimal) with an xml. This is a FLOOD reflector, and for its size pretty good....could also be a pro. Made enti...
