    You get what you pay for!

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

    Pros:
    Zoom feature allows for more throw.
    Cons:
    Fragile - the plastic tabs that hold the light to the headband break very easily, and then it's pretty much screwed. It's also...

    The best bike mount on DX

    posted by waffle on 11/08/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I have a couple of mounts from DX, but these are the best. They attach easily to handlebars, and they're easy to use. The grip on the light is effective, too - it's the only one I have that doesn't seem to come loose after a while. It's also the only moun...
    Cons:
    There's no sideways rotation. Build quality is adequate, but not fantastic.

    You do get what you pay for

    posted by waffle on 11/08/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's very cheap, and it works reasonably. You aren't going to buy this over the original for any reason other than price, obviously, and the price is great.
    Cons:
    The battery just doesn't last all that long. I have an aging original battery that I was hoping to replace, but this battery d...

    Cute!

    posted by waffle on 10/01/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The best thing about this light is its massive spot when zoomed right out. It's a big bright circle. Even if this light didn't have its adjustability, it would be worth looking at for that alone. Of course, the main draw is the focusing, which certainly ...
    Cons:
    The zoom mechanism feels a bit cheap. Overall build is pretty cheap really. The lanyard it comes with is better than most bud...

    Fits JetBeam Jet III Pro

    posted by waffle on 10/01/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I was pleasantly surprised to find that this fit the Jet III Pro, which apparently has a reputation for only just fitting other cells. I went out of my way to order a certain premium brand of 18650s as well, but discovered that these ones fit anyway.
    Cons:
    None that I've noticed so far.

    About as cheap as these things get

    posted by waffle on 09/17/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I haven't seen these cheaper anywhere else - even ebay equivalent V2s triggers are considerably more. What's more, this receiver takes AAA batteries instead of the CR2 batteries they often require, which is a plus for me personally. Range seems to be good,...
    Cons:
    Build quality is cheap, as you'd expect for the price. Contacts were a little unreliable, and it took a bit of fiddling initia...

    Flexible

    posted by waffle on 09/11/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This charger handles a variety of cells, but for me, the fact that it supported 18650 and 16340 alone was enough. The battery compartment contains a spring-loaded sliding tab that contacts the lower battery terminal, and thus adapts to the length of the ba...
    Cons:
    It feels a bit cheap, but seeing as it doesn't cost a great deal, one can't really complain about that. Really, I haven't noti...

    Better than I expected!

    posted by waffle on 08/29/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I didn't expect this to be easy to use. At this price, I figured I'd get something functional but poorly designed, but no, this is actually pretty good. Setting times is performed via a thumb wheel on the side, which you click inward to move between secon...
    Cons:
    Nothing significant.

    Another great Romisen light

    posted by waffle on 08/28/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small, and extremely flexible. Like the Romisen RC-N3, another great light, this will take a 16340 battery, or two AA batteries via an extension tube. Unlike the RC-N3, though, this will also take a single AA as well. The trade-off is brightness - 1xAA m...
    Cons:
    It's a little dim in 1xAA mode. 2xAA and RCR modes are significantly brighter.

    Perfect size

    posted by waffle on 08/28/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Fits my 160GB iPod perfectly. I just wanted something to put the iPod into when I packed it in with other stuff in a bag, and these socks certainly fit the bill. Cheap, nice range of colours.
    Cons:
    I can't really thing of anything bad to say about these, especially for the price.
