    Handy light for the money

    posted by greedx on 01/14/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very bright light on full power. Red LED is actually great for sneaking out of the tent in the dead of night without waking anyone and without tripping over anything (just a pita to flick through the other modes to get to it)...
    Cons:
    Poor QA (or shipping damage?) - 1 of the5 I bought had screw that secures battery compartment thread striped and cannot be done...

    Poor QA but excellent once working

    posted by greedx on 01/14/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    First one has been very reliable, good consistent light output etc. Hopefully, now I've fixed the tailcaps, the new ones will be as good.
    Cons:
    The first one I had to do some work on heatsinking but was otherwise ok. The latest ones were all DOA out of the packing. Tail ...

    Great all rounder

    posted by greedx on 07/18/2010 Certified Owner

    Pros:
    - Good flood - Constant brightness as battery discharges - Doesn't overheat - Has o-ring seals - Makes a good bike light (among other uses) - Memory feature works well (just as well)

    Great adapter/mount

    posted by greedx on 07/18/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    "quick release" removable mount is good so you can use torch away from bike, or save those critical few grams when riding in daylight, or to stop someone stealing it, or just so it doesn't get damaged if you stand the bike on the bars to change a ...
    Cons:
    While there is useful rubbery spacer material for the mount to the bars, there isn't anything for the torch side of the mount. ...

    Love the irony

    posted by greedx on 07/18/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Battery capacity is genuine (measured) Protection works (tested) The ironic packaging (colourful pictures of flames on a battery with protection circuit) is great :) What else is there to say about a battery? These represent very good value considering that...
    Cons:
    None really, except that, as with all li-ion cells you should *not* charge these and leave stored fully charged as their capaci...
