    Good cam, low price

    posted by carrier82 on 08/13/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very good quality, small size, image quality comparable to more expensive cameras like JVC. Video and DC drive auto iris interface, at least the DC drive interface works and has been tested.
    Cons:
    None I can think of. Maybe the bundle lens could have auto iris so would be more usable outdoors, but then perhaps the price wo...

    Basic holster for 2AA, maybe 2CR123

    posted by carrier82 on 01/20/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Fits my 2AA lamps like Fenix E20 and Maglite 2AA bezel up and bezel down, but grips the flashlight better if put bezel down. 2CR123 lights like Pelican M6 are a bit too short for this holster in my opinion, I would go for the shorter 6 inch version with tho...
    Cons:
    The build material does not seem to be very tough. I accidentally cut a piece off the edge of the holster when I was unwrapping...

    Good protected cell

    posted by carrier82 on 01/20/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    While the cell is quite big when compared to other (cheaper) 18650 cells, this means there is quality also. You cannot make cells smaller without compromising something like the protection circuit or cell capacity. I have my confidence in this cell because ...
    Cons:
    Positive node has a weld point in it. If the plastic wrapping breaks it might short circuit the cell when inside a flashlight.

    Decent flashlight

    posted by carrier82 on 01/20/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Brightest of my 1-emitter flashlights. Not too small and has edges to prevent rolling off table. Can be upgraded easily with many compatible drop-in modules.
    Cons:
    Mine has quite a blue tint, a bit too blue for my taste. Machining quality is not very good, had pieces of metal inside the ref...

    Bang for the buck

    posted by carrier82 on 01/20/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Quite sturdy appearance, wont break apart too easily. Has two individual charging channels and two leds to inform the charging status so one can charge only one cell at a time if so wishes. The led is red when charging and turns green when charging is compl...
    Cons:
    I don't think you can charge LiFePO4 cells with this charger.

    Decent NiCd battery

    posted by carrier82 on 01/20/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Does what it is supposed to do. Performs better in extreme cold temperatures than NiMH batteries. Seems like the 2500mah rating is quite near the truth. NiCd is supposed to handle over charge better than NiMH.
    Cons:
    Has memory effect. Did not come in retail packaging shown in the pictures but simple plastic wrapping. Has chinese written all ...
