    Only if you need them

    posted by FlightInWinter on 07/31/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    These convert 2 AA batteries to a D-Cell whereas sku.22596 converts 1 AA battery to a D-Cell. These will give you more amperage capacity.
    Cons:
    The plastic hinge feels REAL cheap and I doubt that it will hold up to much of anything. The batteries wobble inside until yo...

    Smaller Than Expected

    posted by FlightInWinter on 07/27/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Shipping was very fast on this item. The light is quite bright for its size. It will easily light up a small bathroom. Useful during a power outage or on a camping trip. Small enough to pack into your kit. Seems to be fairly well built. Black areas o...
    Cons:
    It's much smaller than I expected it to be, but most things are these days. I uploaded some pictures so you can see the scale....

    Big Crooked Sticker

    posted by FlightInWinter on 07/25/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These are inexpensive and serve their intended purpose. Fits the screws on many pocket knives.
    Cons:
    They plastered a big old sticker crooked on the plastic cover. Even the one in the demo pics is in crooked. I was able to pee...

    Worth the Price

    posted by FlightInWinter on 07/23/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Threads are clean and effective. No real fear of cross-threading. Light is fairly bright for a AAA flashlight Fairly sturdy build. Looks like it will hold up to some abuse.
    Cons:
    The tail clicky feels a little cheap and I doubt it is water proof.

    Red is Handy

    posted by FlightInWinter on 07/23/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I bought 10 of these to start with. They are brighter than I expected. Bright enough to light your path a few feet in front of you and bright enough to tune your radio or even read a map without ruining your night vision.
    Cons:
    The switches on 3 of mine didn't work but you can still squeeze them to make them light. The non-working switch is a pain and ...

    Worth the Money

    posted by FlightInWinter on 07/14/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Fairly well built. Not on par with a Romisen but better than I expected for the money. The threads are deep and clean but the contact plate in the tail seems cheap. Rear clickie is firm and definite. Doesn't feel like it will break any time soon. The head...
    Cons:
    Neither the threads nor o-rings were lubricated but that's to be expected. O-rings are very thin and flimsy and are easily dist...

    Strong and Reliable

    posted by FlightInWinter on 07/14/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is stronger than you might expect. The cutting edges are pretty sharp as delivered and is hollow ground so you can put a razor edge on it if you want. The steel is pretty good and delivers an impressive shower of sparks from a ferrocerium fire start...
    Cons:
    The little pouch that comes with this is cheap plastic and will probably tear soon. Get a formidable business card holder as a...

    My Newest Favorite

    posted by FlightInWinter on 07/14/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    All three lights that I purchased were identical in quality and performance which was excellent. The edges are all smooth and well-finished. The matte finish is consistent with no flaws. This looks and feels like it should cost more than it does. I had...
    Cons:
    Strobe mode is fast and annoying as expected. If someone broke into your house and you shined this light in their eyes in stro...

    Good Light Even If Not What I Ordered

    posted by FlightInWinter on 07/11/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Appears to be very well-built. Will tail stand. Hurray for that crowd! Nice, consistent finish. Threads are clean and tight. OP reflector. Can't get to it to tell if it's aluminum or plastic. Very clean beam with no artifacts. Perfectly round. LED is m...
    Cons:
    When mine they arrived, one of two would not work until I took it apart and cleaned everything...and cleaned everything again, ...

    posted by FlightInWinter on 07/11/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The knife seems fairly strong. Clean lines.
    Cons:
    The blade is a bit narrower than I was expecting. The steel is obviously 440 or much less and I wouldn't expect this knife to ...
