    Getting Another One

    posted by zippyzappy on 04/19/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    They last as long as the original. This is my second battery. The first one I bought was back in April 2010. It is finally about half capacity. My original factory battery lasted 1 year before it needed replacement. At $5.01 it would be criminal not to buy ...
    Cons:
    It does not last forever. Since these Li-Ion batteries only last for 300-500 charges, you need to get them every year or so. Th...

    Big But Small

    posted by zippyzappy on 04/19/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Well seeing how these things keep getting bigger and cheaper, there are no reasons to complain. This is the fastest and biggest card I now own. It does transfer quickly compared to my Lexar class 4 and others. The greatest thing is that it works as advertis...
    Cons:
    The adaptor it came with came apart the first time I used it. But who cares.... The adapters are like pennies, no? We all have ...

    Just What I Expected

    posted by zippyzappy on 04/19/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    They look nice. The color scheme makes you think they cost a lot more. Capacity is true. These fit very well into my charger and lights. No slamming or prying needed. If they were just .o15" longer, then I would be trying to find a bigger charger. Not ...
    Cons:
    You can't put them in the fire. They run out of power when you use them. They need to be charged up when they are empty. Only p...

    UltraFire On The Cheap Is Great!

    posted by zippyzappy on 04/16/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I am very pleased with the color output. I was expecting greenish or something awful for the price. Greatly surprised! It has intense lumen ability. It plain smokes my $54 P3D-Q5 and all my older generation hand held LED lights except for my Magic Shine b...
    Cons:
    Next are the drawbacks to this light: 1) The 'pill' is loose, loose, loose. 1a) Fix by disassembling the pill from the reflec...

    Good For Helicopter Blades

    posted by zippyzappy on 09/01/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works perfect out of the box. Pop in the batteries. Push power button. It lights up with a cool blue scree. Auto zeroes. A- weigh you go. The tweezers are great for small parts. It is accurate enough to weigh 1 mm by .5 mm screws. If you own a chopper, don'...
    Cons:
    The measuring plate is only 1/2 inch wide. Whatever you are going to put on this must be balanced on top of a squared spacer. T...

    Fun AND Durable

    posted by zippyzappy on 09/01/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This helicopter is perfect for any novice. It is quick to charge. Easy to fly. It withstands most impacts. Just be sure to cut the throttle before impact. I have a 4 year old son who can fly and land this without trouble. To fly this in the house or garage,...
    Cons:
    It is made out of metal that bends when it falls hard. Rear propeller is a joke. Use slow cure glue at the hub to blade connect...

    Simple and Accurate

    posted by zippyzappy on 06/30/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    When I first put this to use, I was really impressed. Put batteries in. It immediately auto zeroes. Weigh your stuff. Tough little unit. The weighing platform is about as big as a nickle. It would be difficult to damage because it is protected by the cover ...
    Cons:
    Small, small, small. It is the size of my wallet. Not that it needs to be bigger but I might lose it in my tool box. I will kee...

    Perfect For My Needs

    posted by zippyzappy on 06/30/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    First thing I have to say is: Finally a light that is worth buying, not 'investing' in. Second thing is: This light has everything a normal night enthusiast needs. It's simple, bright, has a great spill beam, decent mount, light weight and small. All this i...
    Cons:
    Fast rides in pitch black require two lamps for safety. Cruising or hiking you need only one, plus a mini backup just in case. ...

    Bright and Focused

    posted by zippyzappy on 06/27/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nobody that I have read about has upgraded their TacTikka. Well I just had to mod both of mine. Original output and color gave me a headache. Not so with these. Bright spot and better color. Build quality is great and so is the reliability. I use these regu...
    Cons:
    Since the output is better they pull more juice. My runtimes have dropped about 20%. That is to be expected though. More power ...

    Not Exactly What I Expected- BUT Very Bright

    posted by zippyzappy on 06/27/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I tried to mount this baby in my TikkaXP but to no avail. So I mounted it in an encapsulated star mount in another flashlight. To put it simply, this bad boy is bright white. Lumem output compared to Lumiled was staggeringly different. Almost put it on par ...
    Cons:
    Upon initial inspection of this high quality LED, I found that the soldering joint on one side was obviously over soldered. Aut...
