    With only single mode it can be a bit bright for some close up jobs but you can adjust the focus which spreads the light out. T...

    posted by trademe101 on 02/27/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Cons:
    - Apple logo is cut out, looks cool, but it means the logo can get scratched. - Its harder to install than expected. Came with...

    Good air blower

    posted by trademe101 on 01/30/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Big size. Great quality finish, looks good. Nice and soft to use. Small clear plastic pipe around metal tip to protect your target. Blows a good amount of air. Has a valve on the other end, so that it can suck air from the valve end and blow out of the nozz...
    Cons:
    Valve on other end occasionally sticks, but give it a flick and its back. Seems not quite as powerful as compressed air

    Button requires more force than I expected, but not too bad. Not as handy as I expected, because flame is a little tooo hot for...

    Cool little light

    Mine was made of softer metal, not shiny. It gets kinda dirty and rough more easily but no big deal.
