    Absurdly bright, long battery life, runs hot in hi mode

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

    Pros:
    The XM-L is a great emitter. Definitely bright enough for everyday use. Zooms from a pretty wide flood to a well-focused spot. Good size for everyday carry.
    Cons:
    Battery cap doesn't screw smoothly; it actually leaves aluminum filings every time you unscrew it. Plastic lens may get scratch...

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

    Pros:
    Works perfectly for display mirroring on an iPad 2. Looks a lot like the original adaptor. Seems pretty sturdy.
    Cons:
    Finish is a bit rough. The plastic seams don't quite line up.

    Does the job, but expected more for the price.

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

    Pros:
    Long probe. Seems to be more or less waterproof. Works up to 300 °C. Pretty accurate
    Cons:
    Response is rather slow. Display becomes unreadable if upper case gets too warm (from steam or the like)

    Nice keys, but a bit flimsy and too light.

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

    Pros:
    Has the best keys in one of these iPad keyboards that I've ever seen. They feel a lot like the keys on my MacBook Pro and includes the option and command keys, which are useful for symbols and shortcuts. Quite thin. About doubles the thickness of an iPad 2.
    Cons:
    Finish damages easily. Too light. No way to use the keyboard as just a cover.

    Pros:
    Very bright. Uses readily available AAA batteries and battery life is pretty long.
    Cons:
    Green finish has some mild imperfections and seems easy to scratch. Activation switch changes the brightness of the beam slight...

    High capacity, somewhat difficult to install.

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

    Pros:
    Much higher capacity than original battery. Comes with a short charging cable.
    Cons:
    Pretty difficult to install. The charging cable doesn't seem to work for data and is really short.
