    Cons:
    - The three additional dials/hands are just for show, not really a "con" unless you hope that a <$5 analog watch h...

    Pros:
    Changable combination Reasonably solid construction Nice size Three of these linked will secure my bike seat and rear carrier bag to the bike frame

    The movable lock mechanism on one of the three I bought just barely held on to the carabiner that it couples over, and I did a ...

    Pros:
    Solid glass lens, over 3 1/4 inches in dia. Sturdy plastic housing Adequate lighting, with slide switch
    Cons:
    It's not an LED, it's an incandescent bulb! The bulb on one of the ones I ordered was a bit misaligned in the mount, but a litt...

    A long, loooong flint

    posted by Gamleged on 01/21/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    . Cotton-stuffed body holds a lot of lighter fluid . Screw-in striker cap has an O-ring to retard fluid evaporation . Has a long flint embedded in a channel in the side, should last a good many camping trips . Nice mini-clip to attach to keychain
    Cons:
    No retainer for screw in/out steel striker/wick, be careful not to drop it where you can't find it!

    2 LEDs light up your life, substantial red laser

    posted by Gamleged on 01/14/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    . Two LEDs are clearly better than one, on this keychain unit . The red laser will print a visible dot on a white target 1/2 mile away, it's notably stronger than you'd expect . Unit and carabiner seem substantially built
    Cons:
    . None noted

    Compact and very, VERY bright

    posted by Gamleged on 01/05/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This small lamp has a satisfying heft to it as the internal 3x AAA cartridge adds weight. The attached strap is large enough for my large hand to slip through. The "frog-eye" lens zooms freely to provide a room-filling spill with a barely discern...
    Cons:
    The spot looks nothing like the ad photo, it's a BRILLIANT, squarish view of the chip, complete with printed circuit paths. The...
