    Nice, small, feels solid

    posted by panicmechanic on 03/11/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small size, will fit into the smallest light body. Can be taken apart easily, looks capable of switching the loads it's rated for. If problems occur, small parts are quickly exchanged.
    Cons:
    Can NOT be soldered onto while assembled. 100% chance of destroying it if you try. Had to wait for ages before this was in stoc...

    Nice neutral tint, doubles as a heater

    posted by panicmechanic on 02/02/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Has good brightness in neutral white colour. The lenses on the individual leds spread very evenly and at a wide angle, no individual spots are visible. So this would be a plus for room lighting. Two of them on either side of a really big heatsink would repl...
    Cons:

    Much better than the price suggests

    posted by panicmechanic on 07/28/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small enough for most pockets, good storage idea for hook, weighing is accurate to 10 gr. (well, at least the values correspond with those from my other scales). The thermometer seems to work alright, just tested it once, don't really need it.
    Cons:
    Do we need a con? Yes, maybe the battery cover. It slides too easy. I use a strip of textile tape attached to the inside of the...

    Nice small driver for one or two 3 Watt emitters

    posted by panicmechanic on 02/04/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small form factor, could be built into sleek lamp housing for home or garden lighting.
    Cons:
    Build quality just acceptable, see pics of pcb. A bit pricy.
