    A very nice light.

    posted by gasbag11 on 03/21/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very good fit and finish. Glass lens. O-rings on head and tailcap and a GITD O-ring on the lens. No blemishes or scratches anywhere. Comes with a sleeve for an 18650, and a 3XAAA battery holder.
    Cons:
    Won't tailstand because there's a lug where the lanyard attaches, but that's not really a con since it's shown in the photos. ...

    Great idea

    posted by gasbag11 on 08/26/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The idea behind this light is great. Unfortunately, the light itself is not. It is almost impossible to focus both lights at the same point without them moving, or moving when you touch them. Both lights (4 leds) combined have an output of about 5~6 lm. Too...
    Cons:
    Batteries were extremely hard to put in. One of the contact springs got bent and had to be straightened.

    Not impressed.

    posted by gasbag11 on 08/03/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very nice looking. Glass lens. Switch (reverse clicky) feels good and works reliably. O-rings everywhere. It's an excellent "thrower" because it has a very deep reflector. Fit and finish are fair. (for the price)
    Cons:
    It has "next mode memory". If you turn it off in high mode, it will start in low mode when switched back on. If you w...

    Almost a great light!

    posted by gasbag11 on 07/31/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Well made with a nice even finish. Glass lens. Aluminum reflector. O-rings everywhere. Switch feels and works good. Deep reflector so it has decent "throw". The "spill" light is very slightly "ringy" but still usable, and is no...
    Cons:
    It has NEXT MODE MEMORY! An annoying and stupid mode system IMO. It changes to the next mode every time you turn it on. If you ...

    Nice!

    posted by gasbag11 on 07/31/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Well made and very well finished. Glass lens. Double O-rings head and tailcap. Good switch with reverse clicky. Color is very nice. Could be 200 lm. but I have no way to measure it. Deep reflector gives it good "throw" for a small light. The "...
    Cons:
    None.

    Great for kids

    posted by gasbag11 on 07/11/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Seems well made, for the price. Works great. 3 modes. Different blinking speeds and different colors. Also changes colors when you wave it. Has a nice long multi-colored strap. Had a little plastic tab on the side to keep it from turning on. Just pull the t...
    Cons:
    None that I can see.

    Good looking light

    posted by gasbag11 on 07/11/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    For the price it's fairly well made. The finish is nicely done. It's about 2 ~3 shades darker than the photos and looks even better. Feels solid and the switch feels good too. Has a glass lens. Reverse clicky. It's a decent "thrower". Maybe 15~20 ...
    Cons:
    Not 50 lumens. Maybe 10~12. No O-rings.

    A cool little light

    posted by gasbag11 on 07/11/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nicely made like my other Small Sun lights. Seems sturdy and well finished. Has a glass lens and smooth reflector. Tailcap button is recessed and has a nice positive feel. Brighter than I expected, and it's a decent little "thrower". Probably abou...
    Cons:
    No O-rings, but that's not a real con for this type of light because the head extends to make a little lantern. The keychain is...

    Leaping Lizards (frogs actually)

    posted by gasbag11 on 07/01/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    All plastic but well made and sturdy. The light is surprisingly bright. It will stay on if you hold the button down, but does flicker a little each time it croaks. Looks and sounds pretty realistic. Plenty of light for a keychain light. Well painted too.
    Cons:
    No cons for the frog, but the keychain is a little flimsy.

    A tiny light show.

    posted by gasbag11 on 06/28/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    One of the best little "fun" lights I've bought at DX. Seems pretty sturdy. Hold down the front button (near the lens) and the laser comes on. Click the other button once, and the flashlight comes on and stays on. Click it again and the "ligh...
    Cons:
    None that I can see.
