    100 Lumens, and they mean it.

    posted by jamska on 05/26/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Visibly much brighter than my 900 Lumen lights, and the shiny reflector is a great combination with the LED. Nice spread of light rather than a piercing beam.
    Cons:
    I learned to hate the 5-mode clicky switch in less than a minute. You can't immediately tell when you turn it on if you are at...

    Good complement to SKU 12761

    posted by jamska on 06/23/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Previous post was spot-on about the tight beam. This light has a smooth reflector that provides a very tight focus. It is a great spot light, if that is what you want. I have the SKU 12761, and it is the opposite -- broad coverage. Both are great lights...
    Cons:
    Tight focus is only a CON if you don't want that.

    Just OK, not great

    posted by jamska on 06/18/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It works fine. Good build quality. Comes in a nice box.
    Cons:
    This light is sort of big. The HID bulb throws a lot of heat and the light gets warmer than an LED equivalent. It takes 15 se...

    Pretty good

    posted by jamska on 06/08/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works fine Quality light. Works well on 2X CR123 or (if they fit) one 18650 - no difference in output.
    Cons:
    Not all of my protected 18650 cells fit in this light. I tried 10 cells, and only 3 would go into this light. I don't have th...

    Works great

    posted by jamska on 06/07/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good charge rate without overheating batteries. Easy to understand independent LED indicators. Universal A/C input voltage (OK, you may need an adaptor since it only comes with a US plug style). Simple in operation. Power cord is flexible and high quality. ...
    Cons:
    Only charges 18650 batteries, but maybe that is really a Pro if that is all you want to charge.

    This sucker is really bright

    posted by jamska on 06/06/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Works great. More of a flood that a spot, so you see everything, and it is so bright that it completely saturates everything with light. Nice clean white light, little if any blue hue. Long run time.
    Cons:
    Huh?

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

    Pros:
    Nicely built, good constant-on switch (like a flashlight), comes in a pretty box.
    Cons:
    Nowhere near 90 milliwatts output Measured output at 532 nm: 38 milliwatts Measured output at 1064 nm: 6.2 milliwatts Lightly f...

    Some of these lasers don't have IR filter !!!

    posted by jamska on 12/05/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Really IS 30 mw output at 532 nm(measured on Coherent Laser-Mate Q).
    Cons:
    Limited usefulness without the IR filter. There was no IR filter in the unit that I last received, but previous units had the ...

    Technical Data

    posted by jamska on 11/09/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Has IR filter, easy on batteries, efficient, good switch (unlike the 5 mw unit I got). Well focused. Low laser spread (sorry, I didn't measure spread or beam size). Neat toy.
    Cons:
    At this price, too many will be sold into then hands of idiots who have no understanding of the eye damage that can be caused b...

    Excellent super bright laser pointer

    posted by jamska on 11/02/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This laser HAS IR FILTER !!! Therefore, it is nowhere near as dangerous as the 5mw laser that does NOT have the IR filter. This laser is about 4 times brighter than the 5 mw laser.
    Cons:
    I can't think of even one.
