    OK, but overhyped

    posted by caerlon on 05/04/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -clicky switch (not to common on 1xAAA sized lights) -Q4 LED w/deep reflector, behind a glass lens (as opposed to Gerber Infinity, Fenix E01, etc) -*very* lightweight -acceptable build quality -sturdy pocket clip -can use either 10440s for insane outpu...
    Cons:
    -not really seeing the fabled Akoray quality. thread quality is very overhyped. yes theyre squared threads, but with a lot of p...

    You get what you pay for.

    posted by caerlon on 11/14/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -Solid exterior build quality and mount -Looks decent, no big 'Made in China' written on it (not written anywhere in fact). -Lenses actually look coated. -mount is solid, and can be reversed to fit an air rifle/22 style dovetail. -It worked... but see ...
    Cons:
    -the large dial should be giving you 4-5 different intensities of green and red but every setting is the exact same intensity. ...

    It works, but might not be ideal for A2DP

    posted by caerlon on 07/21/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -very inexpensive: even at discount online electronics retailers USB bluetooth adapters usually start at $15-20 plus shipping. -it works (see cons) -very low-profile, so its ideal for laptops
    Cons:
    -might not be ideal for A2DP: no matter what I try I am getting brutal stuttering and lag and cutouts when trying to use A2DP w...

    Cheap throw upgrade.

    posted by caerlon on 07/21/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Dramatically improves throw. Very easy to replace your stock P60 reflector: simply unscrew the old one and screw in the new one. These can also be used as a base for your own DIY projects. This design with the solid brass base is by far the best to work w...
    Cons:
    Spring is loose inside the bubble wrap packaging so it may migrate into the reflector during shipping and cause scratches. Dep...

    The most rugged of the WF-50x series

    posted by caerlon on 07/21/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    At the time of this writing I've owned all of the WF-50Xx series. While this one is the most expensive and no-frills of the bunch, I would actually highly recommend it if you are looking for an inexpensive, rugged light design. Its a quite obvious clone of...
    Cons:
    I would prefer a recessed tail switch, and a smooth reflector. The smooth reflector is easily and cheaply remedied by ordering...

    -very poor quality metal chain/keyring -- you might want to look this over and maybe squeeze some of the links together better ...

    Underrated little light

    posted by caerlon on 07/10/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -cheap -Q5 emitter - great light output especially from such a small light -looks good, good build quality with good anodizing and machining -tiny: smaller than a Gerber Infinity Ultra -good light output -waterproof (see cons) -GITD tailcap -tail switch, no...
    Cons:
    -missing an O-Ring behind the lens. not a big deal: as usual, disassemble your light when you receive it, blow out any metal fi...

    Best value in a mid-sized flashlight

    posted by caerlon on 07/09/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -This is probably the best value you'll find in a mid-sized, standard duty flashlight. -Compared to a Fenix TK10 (similar light) which costs nearly 5x as much, it is brighter, and offers more functionality by way of the 5-mode switch (see cons). -Looks goo...
    Cons:
    -mushy amorphous black tailcap... i highly recommend you replace this with a new one. any of the 14mm tailcaps will fit - i rep...

    Not a bad deal

    posted by caerlon on 07/08/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -the R2 module alone is worth $10, so you basically get a P60 host for another $5 - so when you read my 'cons' keep in mind I am reviewing basically a $5 flashlight. -CHEAP -very bright, decent runtime -it works -waterproof (see cons) -fits 18650 sku.5790,...
    Cons:
    -low quality anodizing, and some of the machined edges like the crown are unpleasantly sharp. the build quality, finish, machin...
