    Nice illumination, horrible modes

    posted by ahains on 08/03/2007

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

    Pros:
    Very small, feels nice in hand, build quality feels solid with good threads, nice bright light.
    Cons:
    Description says the state memory returns you to SAME mode. In actuality, it returns you to NEXT mode. So if you're camping and...

    Waste of money, better options at DX

    posted by ahains on 07/31/2007

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

    Pros:
    Very cheap. Cree LED. Construction feels fairly solid. Lanyard actually big enough to put hand through.
    Cons:
    Not very bright. Clicky button has to go in a ways and has to be perfectly straight, or else you get a bad click and it doesn't...

    Great packaging, great batts, dirt cheap

    posted by ahains on 07/28/2007

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

    Pros:
    Packaging kept all batteries separate from each other so didn't have a problem with shorting out. 19 of mine were between 3.4 and 3.5 volts (most were 3.46), and 1 battery was dead on arrival (under 1 volt).
    Cons:
    Since they don't come in individual blister packs, you should either test them with a volt meter or else be prepared to have to...

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

    Very reasonably priced, and tested out at good capacity. I ran them through a LaCrosse BC-900 charger/tester, the following results are (1)original capacity, (2)capacity after "refresh" cycle 788mah,795mah 820mah,836mah 796mah,801mah 817mah,84...
    Cons:
    None.

    great light, great value

    posted by ahains on 07/26/2007

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

    Pros:
    Very bright, very small, very very cheap. I have an almost identical 9 led flashlight from harbor freight that I paid $5 for (on "sale"), and this one from DX is FAR FAR brighter. It blows the other one away, I'm extremely pleased.
    Cons:
    I feel the batteries move around slightly inside when in use, but I don't really care about this. It doesn't affect the operati...

    Excellent head lamp

    posted by ahains on 07/26/2007

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

    Pros:
    Wonderful color to the light, this is much warmer than any of my other LED flashlights (even my Petzl head lamp). Everything else looks at least a bit blue in comparison, this is my favorite one for color temperature. Brightness at low setting is slightl...
    Cons:
    One of the two I ordered didn't turn on at first. I gave it a tap on the side and it worked. After that it worked perfectly eve...
