    Pretty perfect for that price

    posted by Patrik28 on 12/12/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Small size - Build quality was good - Led-driver seems to be good, it draws 1.3A from full 18650 Li-ion cell. - Single mode - Lightpower suprised me, despite the small reflector
    Cons:
    - Sometimes the reverse clicky power switch tends to be stuck. It won't turn the led on or it will left the led flickering diml...

    Good DIY flashlight

    posted by Patrik28 on 11/19/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Excellent appearance/quality (so far the best of my three earlier C2 models) - Threads + fittings are in quite good tolerance (only the pill rattled a little) - Can be customized with 14 mm silicone caps, SKU: 5498 - Included almost every part but...
    Cons:
    ... The pill arrived without the brass-ring. You have to find or lathe the ring by yourself to fit a driver-pcb. Therefore two ...

    Not 1.2 A driver (2x amc7135)

    posted by Patrik28 on 11/17/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - No fancy modes, just on-off driver - Provides 700mA for Cree Q5 (actually this isn't a good thing)
    Cons:
    - You have to add a third amc7135 into the empty place on the pcb to get a 1A capable driver. But there is nothing to do to get...

    Handy gas torch

    posted by Patrik28 on 04/02/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Good gas capacity (lasts a couple of ten minutes). - Clear/visible gas tank. - Ergonomic size. - Very heat spot flame. - Quite easy to use (ignitor is tricky sometime). - Great prize.
    Cons:
    - The ignitor is weak. It needs at least 2 strokes to ignite (sometimes even 10). - Build quality is low. It seems that the to...

    IBM 08K8210 replacement charger

    posted by Patrik28 on 04/01/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Replaces original IBM AC adapter perfectly. - Quiet (very small noise is audible if you put ear against adapter). - Outstanding price. An original AC adapter is much more expensive. - Seems to be very durable.
    Cons:
    There are very few cons, but here's some: - The original IBM AC adapter has a Velcro-strap to bind easily the cords. This one ...

    OK quality cells

    posted by Patrik28 on 03/26/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - I bought 3-pack for replacing old cells in Thinkpad 600 battery. The runtime is now about 3 hours. Enough for me, despite if the battery capacity isn't real. - Price-ratio is great. New battery for less than 20$ (3-pack).
    Cons:
    - There is no solder-tab on minus pole. But it is possible solder a tab if you have good lead-tin and flux. Of course, you have...

    OK strap

    posted by Patrik28 on 03/19/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Strap adjusting is done by non-lockable plastic piece. Easy and fast to use, but during use, gradually slides away. - Build quality is average. The textil-part width varies a little bit and it looks like used. - Dimensions are the same as with original Ni...
    Cons:
    - Price is high, because there are better (original like) quality straps on DX. - Very white color. Will not match with many ha...

    Great little flashlight

    posted by Patrik28 on 03/18/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Lightpower is quite good. Not really 230 lumens, because 150 lumen flashlights will beat this. I would say this is ~100 lumens. But still good light for its size. - Lightshape will throw dimly even 30 meters, but spill is weak. This is not perfect for ve...
    Cons:
    - Glowing power button is more decoration than useful. It is too dim and requires bright light to charge. - No sealing between...

    Good carrying starp

    posted by Patrik28 on 03/17/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - These straps are really well made. All parts are fine grade. No extrusions on platics or loose strings on textil strap. The straps could be even genuine. There are Nintendo and Wii marks on plastic parts. - The straps are multipurpose, I put one to a fla...
    Cons:
    - I can't think any.

    Pros:
    - Tiny size - Good build-quality - Reasonable price
    Cons:
