    posted by kubwa on 04/23/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cool looking container. Waterproof. Small enough to be a handy size, does not look out of place on your key chain. Nice anodized finish inside and out, comes in different colors.
    Cons:
    It would be nice if you could order the color your liked. The key ring supplied is way too big, a much smaller one would look b...

    Replacement tail caps

    posted by kubwa on 04/23/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    With a little modification these tail caps will fit most clicky AA LED flashlights . Great replacement for Ultra Fire SS C3. At 10 tail caps you can't beat the price.
    Cons:
    If the green color of the tail caps was more intense they would look cool even if they are not glowing. I would have liked the ...

    cool replacement part

    posted by kubwa on 04/23/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Fits most AA LED flashlights. Great replacement for my Ultra Fire SS C3. At 20 O rings you can't beat the price. These O rings have more uses than just in Flashlights.
    Cons:
    I would have liked the Phosphorescence or glow time to be longer, but it is reasonable. The O rings could be a fraction thicker...

    Practical and affordable

    posted by kubwa on 04/23/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Durable stainless steel construction. Big and strong enough to cut even my thickest toe nails.I like the shape/design of the clippers. Great value, smaller chromed clippers at local outlets are twice the price.
    Cons:
    Not a big con with this clipper, but the nail file area could have been much larger and better placed.

    fantastic survival/camping tool

    posted by kubwa on 04/23/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Extra ferro rod length makes setting alight to tinder much easier. Works when wet. Orange color makes ferro rod easy to find in backpack or if dropped in grass. Great value, exactly same ferro rod is three times the price at camping and survival outlets.
    Cons:
    No cons, great survival tool.

    Reliable fire starter

    posted by kubwa on 04/22/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Functions as intended, makes tinder lighting quick and easy. Makes starting fire in humid or wet conditions very fast and easy. Solid block of magnesium will last for years and start hundreds of fires. Good value, the same magnesium block is twice the price...
    Cons:
    The flint for sparks is a little small, could be twice as thick. It might not last as long as magnesium block.

    Nice little compasses

    posted by kubwa on 04/22/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great compass for general direction finding and stop you from getting lost. Small enough to have on watch band, hang around neck or clip to backpack or clothing. Great price for two pocket compasses, just one can cost ten times more.
    Cons:
    A little too small and inaccurate to be used for orienteering etc. but great backup compasses.

    Essential for reliability of LED's

    posted by kubwa on 04/22/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Silicone grease works as intended. Grease is sticky and not runny like some other greases. Small strong container is more durable than tubes and less likely to be accidentally squeezed out if kept backpack.
    Cons:
    Not a big con, but there could have been twice the amount of silicone grease for the price charged.
