    Really want one that works!

    posted by fastenuff on 12/23/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Excellent idea! I want one of these! In fact I want many in all flashlight sizes!
    Cons:
    The ball joint that is supposed to hold the flashlight where you want it is too weak. My tank 007 m21 flopped around and would...

    Finally a cheap 18650 headlamp!

    posted by fastenuff on 09/21/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Plenty bright. Uses the awesome 18650 rechargeable Lithium battery. Flood to throw works fine. Low mode is significantly dimmer than high (I have had many lights that low was barely noticeably lower). Other than the problems listed below the design is ...
    Cons:
    Hinge looks weak and does not have enough adjust-ability. Mine either was a little to high or low. The battery compartment was...

    Decent knockoff for the price

    posted by fastenuff on 09/21/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    All of the general functionality of the inspired original (an excellent light). Black is a nice color. Hook a light almost anywhere, and for reading this is the best design out there!
    Cons:
    Not as bright as the original. not as tough as the original. I gave mine to my four year old and he broke the switch on one l...

    excellent utility light for camping or dark closet

    posted by fastenuff on 09/21/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very good build quality, nice rubberized coating. Great options for hanging, by the hook or magnet. Nice strong neodymium magnet, hook rotates 360 degrees. 3 led flashlight or multi led utility light.
    Cons:
    I would prefer 3 AAs rather than 3AAAs. This would give 9 times the runtime. Screwdriver needed to access the batteries. Onl...

    Dropped the ball!

    posted by fastenuff on 11/12/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Does what is advertised. The adjustment mechanism is not overly loose like the 18650 version. Instead of just sliding like on the big light you need to twist it.
    Cons:
    I buy cr123a for two reasons, bright and small. While this light is plenty bright when run on 3.7v cr123a rechargables (not so...

    Pretty good light

    posted by fastenuff on 11/12/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This light does exactly what it is supposed to, it goes from spot to flood very nicely and any place in between. Plenty bright and smaller than many other 18650 lights.
    Cons:
    The adjustment from spot to flood is accomplished simply by sliding the head forward and back on the body of the light, which i...

    Very cool product!

    posted by fastenuff on 11/12/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These are great. I have lots of bare notebook drives lying around and I use these with an adapter cord for quick, cheap external drives, no need for a screwdriver. They have little legs on them so air can flow beneath and cool them. They have a good, hig...
    Cons:
    Could be a little cheaper, but still a good deal. One side of the drive has no covering, but that could help cool the drive.

    Cheap disk protection with two pockets

    posted by fastenuff on 11/12/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap and they hold two disks, I bought these as an alternative to the paper envelopes, which only hold one.
    Cons:
    A bit flimsy and there is no flap to hold the disks in, so they could fall out if you are not careful, which kind of defeats th...

    Wow! P7!

    posted by fastenuff on 11/12/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Extremely bright, I do not know if it is four times as bright as a P4 light, but very bright. Enough O rings in the right places to be waterproof, although i have not tested it. Two 18650 batteries should give over one hour runtime, I wouldn't buy a P7 t...
    Cons:
    Came with unlubricated threads throughout. I do not understand the extension tube, can someone explain it? The pill is screwe...

    Good Idea, needs better packaging for shipping!

    posted by fastenuff on 11/12/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small and bright, makes a good addition to your cell phone.
    Cons:
    Two out of three of mine came with low batteries due to being squished during shipping and the batteries are not made to be rep...
