    Strong magnets

    posted by nginx on 08/24/2012

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

    Pros:
    These are some really strong magnets considering how small they are. Very useful if you happen to have a hobby charger and don't want to build custom cradles and battery holders. Been using them to charge all my 18650 batteries. They are also very handy f...
    Cons:
    Kinda fragile. Don't drop them by mistake or they will break. The price could have been lower.

    Nice little watch to show off

    posted by nginx on 04/26/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Runs off 2xCR2016 as opposed to one. This means you won't have to change batteries as often. Just two buttons, less clutter the better. One is for displaying time and another for setting date & time. No other fancy functions. A great watch to show off...
    Cons:
    Very limited usability during day time as LEDs are barely visible under the sun. But if you want to buy a watch like this, you ...

    Best single 18650 flashlight ever

    posted by nginx on 04/26/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very very bright on High mode. This is the brightest flashlight I own and you probably won't find another single 18650 battery flashlight that is brighter than this. The High, Medium and Low modes are evenly spaced. Low mode produces a decent amount of lig...
    Cons:
    Should have come with a lanyard clip at this price. It increase usability significantly. SOS and Strobe modes again. Gotta cyc...

    Great batteries for the price

    posted by nginx on 04/26/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A pair for 9.90 USD is a great deal. Works very well with my Ultrafire KH-T60. So far no problem of PCB tripping due to high current draw. Came in a nice plastic battery case.
    Cons:
    One of the batteries came with ripped skin and exposed metal which can cause short circuit. Needed to buy insulated tape to pat...

    Does what it's supposed to do

    posted by nginx on 04/26/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Comes with EU plug which is great. Price is very reasonable. Works just as expected i.e. charges to 4.2V and then cuts off automatically to protect against overcharge. Also charges both batteries separately which means you can charge one or both batterie...
    Cons:
    If you remove batteries immediately after green LED comes on, then voltage of battery will only be around 4.15V. It is required...

    Fits my bike and flashlight perfectly!

    posted by nginx on 04/07/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very easy to use. Just put it on the handlebar, place the flashlight in slot and strap on the velcro at both ends. Done. This also means you can remove the flashlight from mount within 5 seconds when not in use. Rubber padding absorbs a lot of shock which ...
    Cons:
    Probably not a good choice for fat and heavy flashlights. Hard to use with flashlights having tail cap clicky as it requires o...

    posted by nginx on 04/07/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Simple device, no complicated circuitry involved but works as expected. It is able to fully charge my Nokia and LG phones without any issues. Doesn't get hot like other 1 or 2 cell chargers due to lack of any boost converter. USB plug is highly convenien...
    Cons:
    Build quality is terrible. Feels rickety and is certain to break the first time you drop it. Shoddy workmanship even in the int...

    Probably the best AA flashlight out there today

    posted by nginx on 03/20/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    1) Incredibly bright for an AA flashlight. Probably the brightest single AA flashlight out there today as can be testified by others as well who bought this light. With 14500 battery, the brightness doubles and easily exceeds 300 lumens. 2) Runtime on...
    Cons:
    1) A lanyard clip could have been included with this. 2) The tailcap clicky requires a hard press to turn on the light but y...

    Perfect for camping or emergency lighting at home

    posted by nginx on 03/12/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    1) Takes in 4 AA batteries and last a very long time on the 4 LED mode. On 24 LED mode, it still lasts around 25-30 hours which is amazing. 2) 4 LED mode provides more than enough light to do just about any task while camping. The 24 LED mode is great if y...
    Cons:
    The magnet on its back is weak. You shouldn't rely on it to hold up to its weight even if its a flat smooth static roof to whic...
