    Good for bike use after the 90 degree mod

    posted by theikki on 03/31/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Quick to use - Holds surprisingly well - Strong contsruction, doesn't care about heavy vibration in arctic weather - Good for attaching a lamp in bike handlebar (but needs some modding)
    Cons:
    - Needs some cutting, gluing and re-attaching work to be useful for bikes, the holding slots are parallel by default which does...

    posted by theikki on 03/25/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Very bright, especially for the size - Uses AA batteries, rechargeable OK - Good size for attaching to bike helmet - Good big flat spot, no hotspot - Simple switch instead of some 9-mode, easy for frequent use (a low-power mode I could use however)
    Cons:
    - Mixed feelings with build quality: the aluminium casing is beautiful but the button functionality and zoom slider tightness v...

    Very strong for any contact and near-contact needs

    posted by theikki on 03/25/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very strong hold when contacting another magnet or plain iron, very difficult to pull away (easy to slide however). Pretty strong hold between two of these even with a couple of mm in between.
    Cons:
    Would like thicker (and more powerful) versions. Sure u can stack these together but sometimes it's not the same thing.
