    Does what you expect but be a bit careful on 230V

    posted by Thyra on 11/16/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very convenient to test out E14 bulbs when most lamps in the house are E27. Useful adapter when you need to replace an E27 bulb but only have E14 bulbs handy. Pretty well built. Well yes, there's plastic - high temp material and that is standard today.
    Cons:
    The white round plastic isolator doesn't reach up quite high enough to be sure that the metal of the bulb can't be touched, par...

    Good value, durable light

    posted by Thyra on 09/14/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Quality light: Perfect anodizing, gold-plated battery contacts, lubricated o-rings, nice shape, will tailstand due to recessed switch, positive click-feel of tail switch. Sure this is a bright light for its size. Head can be removed and pill+LED stay there,...
    Cons:
    Beam not clean, dark ring around bright hotspot. Would have been better with an OP reflector. Reflector has not been tightened ...

    posted by Thyra on 12/31/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Rated temperature -20 .. +120ºC Stackable. Has areas for labels. Useful* inside dimensions: 40 x 100 x 60 mm Outside dimensions: 50 x 120 x 83 mm *container has rounded corners, I measure as if I wanted to put a box inside so it has to be a little smal...
    Cons:
    The labels (on the lid of the container) are hard to remove. I used a hair drier to soften the glue, then I could pull them off...

    Amazing little tool, better than expected

    posted by Thyra on 12/31/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Excellent feature set: Blue and yellow flame, integrated stand, piezoelectric ignition. Refuel port is easily accessible, fuel switch is flat slider type to prevent accidental activation. Good looks, solid feel plastic and metal parts. Packing is cardboard ...
    Cons:
    Nothing wrong with this product but just to write something: The label "503TORCH" doesn't stick too well but who cares.

    A tool that needs some rework before, then it's OK

    posted by Thyra on 12/31/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's a versatile hex driver as you'd expect from looking at the product photo. A short end and a long end, a handle which is made of rather hard plastic material which makes it easy to remove oil. It has a hole thru it so it's possible to attach a string or...
    Cons:
    The quality of the tool is mediocre. I'm not saying the steel won't last, it's the many little things that can be done (and hav...

    Pros:
    Bright and good color temperature. Bottom of star PCB is isolated from chip. Excellent for upgrading older lights, because optically compatible with Luxeon III. I have bought ten or more over the last months and was able to upgrade many of my own and my fri...
    Cons:
    Received one of at least ten that I bought, where the bond wires didn't contact the die so the device was lost (obviously by th...

    Great quality optics for Cree XR-E

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

    Pros:
    Quality acrylic glass TIR optics (collimator), precision-molded, nicely locks onto Cree XR-E (sku2394) If carefully aligned, these perform equally well on the LUXEON Rebels !
    Cons:
    Nothing. Just a great product.
