    Works for me

    posted by Xiejol on 06/22/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I have a flush unit from another vendor and bought this for my wife's car. It fits fairly flush, has a nice light that makes it easy to find in the dark, and works as advertised. No problems with my unit, build quality is solid. Nice snug fit, no rattlin...
    Cons:
    Might be a little more flush, but for the price you can't beat it.

    Good for use on your handlebars as sidelights.

    posted by Xiejol on 05/06/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Fairly bright LEDs that can be seen from a decent distance. The modes are nice and the batteries are easy to replace. The unit wraps around your handlebars or other mount points easily and stays in place. I use these as sidelights (running lights) on my ...
    Cons:
    The design is a push-on design where you push on the clear dome. I have found that it is easy to accidentally turn them one wh...

    Great dropin replacement.

    posted by Xiejol on 05/06/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    I have two older R2 dropins that have modes and jumped on this one when it came out. It fits perfectly into my 6P body and shines nice and bright. It is a great thrower that I use nightly for tracking my dogs and looking for stuff in and around the house....
    Cons:
    Not really a con, but you might have to wrap it in copper tape or foil to get good thermal conductivity.

    Works well as a replacement ring.

    posted by Xiejol on 05/06/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    My wife broke the ring on her phone so I bought this as a replacement. It fit perfectly and looks great. The ring was well made and snapped and held in place just like the original.
    Cons:
    The ball was not exactly the same size, which caused my wife to have to scroll a lot more. We put the original ball back in bu...

    Nice bright little light.

    posted by Xiejol on 05/06/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Three very bright LEDs. Large button that requires deliberate pressure to push. No accidental turning on or off. The unit has a reflector built in and comes apart easily enough with a coin or tool. Batteries fit in easily and the modes work as advertise...
    Cons:
    All three LEDs are the same, the top one is no brighter than the other two. I'm not sure what the purpose of the clear lens an...

    Thank you DX!

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

    Pros:
    Only one cable to connect my iPhone 3GS to my car. Before I had a separate USB cable and audio cable. With one plug on each end of the iPhone it made a mess in my car and it was hard to find a place to keep the iPhone while driving. Now I have one nice n...
    Cons:
    The cable splits into the USB and audio cables a little too far from the end for my tastes (24 inches, or exactly in the middle...

    You cannot go wrong with this.

    posted by Xiejol on 05/06/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Easy to use. I use mine with my alcohol stoves instead of a lighter. I can light my stoves from several inches away instead of sticking my hand down the windscreen and burning myself. The thickness of the rod is nice, I would be hard pressed to break it ...
    Cons:
    My first one had too much paint covering the striker. All I had to do was rub it against a brick to get the paint off. Not re...

    Great pocket light for the money

    posted by Xiejol on 04/08/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nice bright light. Very lightweight. The clip is extremely useful because it is small enough to clip into a shirt pocket or pants pocket and I can attach a lanyard to it if I want. The beam is bright with very few artifacts. Battery life is very good wit...
    Cons:
    Not a tail-stander due to the protruding click switch. It would be nice to be able to point it at the ceiling without having t...

    This thing is stupid-bright!

    posted by Xiejol on 04/07/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This thing is incredibly bright! It is definitely a thrower, and a good one at that. Build quality is good, everything felt nice and tight. The beam is clear, the reflector leaves no noticeable artifacts. I tested this along another Q5 and a SureFire 6P...
    Cons:
    AAA holder rattles a little. Not a good flooder due to the super bright hotspot. Threads need some lubrication, they ground a...
