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

    Pros:
    This is a great toy! Hours, days, maybe YEARS of fascination, once you set it up and top up the water when it needs it.
    Cons:
    It's a cheap toy, whaddaya want? Sealed glass with the volatile fluid inside, made the trip from HK to Toronto just fine (maybe...

    Nice bicycle headlight (etc.)

    posted by normofthenorth on 07/07/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very light and comfy. Pretty bright, esp. first two modes (steady on & all flash). Great battery life so far, probably better with the other ("hunting") modes, which aren't as bright. I've found the fit very tight for AAA NiMH cells, but not i...
    Cons:
    Build quality is cheap, and battery fit is extremely tight. After a while the center cell started popping out when I went over ...

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

    Pros:
    Like the other reviewers, I love this gizmo! It seems to work just right, straight out of the package. I also bought one of the battery-operated ones (CR2025 button cell) here, and it only worked a short time. (Replacing the battery only helped for a VERY s...
    Cons:
    None so far.

    A brilliant charger -- but FUSSY!

    posted by normofthenorth on 05/10/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    4 smart independent channels -- no problem charging 1 or 3, or 4 very different batteries. Best easiest "clamp" for AA & AAA I've ever seen -- it just works! (I have a diff. older one with a hinged size adapter that led to wiring failures.) Be...
