    Buy two for the half dome holders

    posted by srinity on 08/14/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I use both a sponge and a 'half dome' filled with these metal coils. (Mine isn't from DX, but it looks similar to sku.34154) My original ball got all gunky with solder, so I ordered one of these to replace it. It works just as well as the original in 'cle...
    Cons:
    A bit small. I don't know if my original holder is bigger then the DX one (I doubt it), but one of these only fills it up half...

    Versitile, So-so build

    posted by srinity on 06/02/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Extremely versatile. The spot mode is almost as good as the recoil thrower DX sells, while the flood is extremely smooth over a very wide angle. Low and High modes are reasonably separated in terms of brightness.
    Cons:
    No memory mode. The strobe mode on this model isn't to useful. Build quality on the model I received isn't all that great. ...

    Cheap way to buy a 501 host

    posted by srinity on 06/02/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a cheap way to buy a 501 host if you are looking for one.
    Cons:
    The red K2 isn't all that bright. While I love Lumiled's products, the DX Cree flashlights are all brighter.

    Generic Workhorse

    posted by srinity on 06/02/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I have at least four 501 bodies, and around 8 drop ins for them. My 501s are stashed around the house, and are my general "goto" light when I need a flashlight. The R2 drop-in in this light represents a great in-door light, useable throw with a ...
    Cons:
    Not for use outdoors past 50ft or so. Get something brighter. "Specialized" batteries can sometimes be a pain. Make...

    Kaboom!

    posted by srinity on 06/02/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I received the edition with the coil spring contacts. Easily fit 2x CR123A protected cells. Charger is very cheap pricewise.
    Cons:
    My charger blew up on the first use. (Transistor Q1 popped, gave the nice horrid smell.)
