    Mind blowingly brilliant, compact, and very high quality

    posted by Ruggy on 10/06/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Extremely well designed. The four 18650 cells operate in parallel, so there can be no dangerous reverse charging of the cells and also no flickering of the light if the unit gets bumped. The finish appears to be gold-tone anodized aluminum, with a nice be...
    Cons:
    Not a "con" really, but the button is very easy to press and I'll need to get used to the prospect of unleashing so m...

    Good but not "microfiber"

    posted by Ruggy on 09/19/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    low-lint or lint-free. Inexpensive. Can be easily tucked into a crowded camera bag. Good for cleaning a camera lens in a pinch. Might be good for cleaning in a very tight area where a large cloth wouldn't fit.
    Cons:
    These are not what we in the States normally refer to as microfiber. Microfiber cloth usually grabs dust so aggressively that ...

    Use TEFLON TAPE to stabilize floppy lens

    posted by Ruggy on 03/24/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great value. Cuts black trash bags across the room, lights matches. Head is adjustable, focuses beam down to a pinpoint. Lightweight but sturdy aluminum and plastic contruciton. Gentle clicky switch, recessed to that you're less likely to activate it. ...
    Cons:
    The adjustable head is very loose and sloppy! Minor QC issue. It is very sloppy in all useful focus ranges. However I fixed ...

    Leather-perfumed VINYL case

    posted by Ruggy on 03/04/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The clip holds my belt firmly. The flap is held closed by magnets. Cover flap has slots for business cards. Good appearance.
    Cons:
    This is NOT leather! It is vinyl which has been sprayed with leather scent! Incredible but true. I am not kidding. And once...
