    Steel Folding Knife Black

    posted by jpreto on 12/31/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great knife for the price, sharp out of the box, good lock up. I had ordered two knives. I took one to show my friend who is a knife collector and he thought it was a Bxxchmxde. I like the handle and the G10 provides a good non slip grip. The blade is ...
    Cons:
    For one of the knives I ordered, two of the three the clip screws were stripped and couldn't be tightened. I have contacted DX...

    Pros:
    I'm on my 2nd light Superfire 3W Cree Flashlight (1x18650) from DX Extreme. I have grown to like this light., The 2nd one is very bright and has a good throw. I run it on an Ultrafire 18650 battery. This light out throws other lights in the similar size...
    Cons:
    The led star wasn't fastened down to the aluminum body although it had some thermal grease under the star. It was an easy fix ...

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

    Pros:
    At the time it was a very cheap light with a Cree led. It is heavy and a solid build. Very bright. The clicky worked well.
    Cons:
    The fact it doesn't turn on when the battery voltage is low is a problem, mine came over 2 month ago. The head was very loose,...

    Ultrafire 3.7V 1800mAh LC 17670 Protected

    posted by jpreto on 07/03/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great battery and works as advertised. I like that it is protected. I use them in my Surefire 6P flashlights with the DX Cree dropins. The protection circuit prevents overcharging. The nipple on the positive end eliminates the need for a spacer magnet.
    Cons:
    none

    U2-Style 3W CREE 1x18650 Flashlight

    posted by jpreto on 06/25/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nice and bright 3W Cree flashlight. The textured reflector makes a nice beam with great side spill and enough throw to spot objects at a distance. I like the runtime with the 18650, very economical to run. Tough light, no bulb to burn out.
    Cons:
    No thermal paste under the LED, I added small amount, it wasn't to hard to do.

    The twist action is a little stiff.
