    Fun toy for a little Star Wars fan

    posted by datilderek on 04/17/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I bought this for my 6 year old son, because he loves Star Wars, and makes light sabers out of paper towel rolls. I figured that a light-up light saber woule be even better. When I first gave it to him, he was thrilled, and spent the night jumping around ...
    Cons:
    The batteries were installed backwards when I got it. There is only one color avilable. Please make one of these in red!!!

    Good value in HAIII light

    posted by datilderek on 11/09/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The light is very solid feeling, with good throw and a wide spill beam. My protected Tenergy and AW 18650 cells fit in this light without any problems. The HAIII on this light is a close match.
    Cons:
    On my current light, there aren't any reals cons that I wasn't expecting. I know that the C2 doesn't have very good regulation...

    D-mini quality at a good price

    posted by datilderek on 10/08/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Equipped with a Q2 CREE LED (four bond wires visible), nicely machined parts, even though they do not look like the current offering from LumaPower. Comes with both reflectors... OP reflector is a must for this light. The head, light engine and switch are...
    Cons:
    Not brighter than my original P4 D-mini, fingerprints and dust on reflectors, spare reflector is packed loose in box.

    Good caliper for the price

    posted by datilderek on 08/30/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very solid feeling tool with easy to read display. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality level when I received the caliper. The measurement repeatability is perfect, and the caliper reads zero when closed. The caliper fits nicely into the case, and s...
    Cons:
    The battery cover is easily dislodged, and could be lost if not careful.

    Good value, surprisingly bright

    posted by datilderek on 04/30/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This light is nicely machined for $6.50, and the threads are smooth. The light is somewhat regulated and brighter than I had expected. The reflector is plastic, but is smooth and free of obvious defects. The beam does not show any read artifacts, either.
    Cons:
    The beam has a blue tint that is common with the LED/star combination. Mine arrived with scratches on the head, and silver fle...
