    Cheap Bright and Good

    posted by snv8888 on 04/14/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is more for the DIY person who wants to build or fix a broken LED torchlight. Very bright considering it's 14k mcd. Almost on par with the 22k mcds. Bought this to make my own laptop light taking power from the usb ports. The remaining spares will go ...
    Cons:
    No cons. But it might be a con for people who are not in DIY projects.

    22000mcd is about the brightest

    posted by snv8888 on 03/25/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    22000mcd is about the brightest LED you can find for this 'old' type (nichia) design. For the price deal, you get 10 pcs and the amazing thing is the batteries are provided in each unit. All came fully functioning and I what i consider very bright for a ti...
    Cons:
    The keychain rings look and feel a little too skinny. Something more robust might be a good idea to up the quality factor.

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

    Pros:

    Cons:
    Quality wise, the neoprene is about the same as a lizard skin. Velcro however is a little hard and stiff. Didn't like the sewed...

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

    Pros:
    The price on DX compared with some countries within the EU is really good. It's the genuine stuff. Get a few and you'll be saving quite abit! Stronger and tougher than elephant glue.
    Cons:
    If you have used epoxy glue before, this item has no cons. However, if you are not into DIY, having to mix the two different pr...

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

    Pros:

    Cons:
    - No memory mode (always resets to higest mode). - Useless handstrap. Too small for wrapping around wrists - medium and low mod...
