  • warm tint, good for trail use

    posted byfrills on 01/06/2011

    This is an affordable P60-compatible drop-in module. It has mode memory, and will remember the last mode it was in before being turned off. The output of this module has a very warm tint, rivaling an incandescent xenon bulb. The light cast by the... Read more

  • Classy and solid

    posted byfrills on 06/14/2010

    The handle is made of real, resin-impregnated wood. It makes for a warm, comfortable grip. The blade has a modified spear-point shape with a highly polished finish. Combined, these factors make for a very classy-looking knife. This knife was razor... Read more

  • Well-built

    posted byfrills on 04/27/2010

    The light has some sturdy construction and heft with a battery tube wall over 3mm thick on average. (approximately 2.5mm at clip attachment point, 3.5mm thick at knurling, 3mm elsewhere) The checkered knurling is reasonably aggressive and provides... Read more

  • SF P/C/L compatible host with XP-G

    posted byfrills on 01/26/2010

    The XP-G emitter is substantially brighter at high current than an XR-E/XP-E. Smooth beam with negligible ringing even with the SMO reflector, a bit floodier than XR-E/XP-E. Working mode memory, comes back on in the last mode used. Tailstands even... Read more

  • Slim light

    posted byfrills on 01/19/2010

    Very compact as far as AA lights go. It's barely wider than the AA it houses and about as tall as one and three quarters of them. Has some variant of Diamond Dragon emitter, which creates a smooth beam with very little ringing despite the smooth a... Read more

  • Tight beam, eccentric driver

    posted byfrills on 01/19/2010

    The polycarbonate optic concentrates the light into a tight beam pattern. Works with AA, 14500 or CR123. Decent output on CR123 primary, around twice as bright as AA. Extremely bright on li-ion, well over twice as bright as AA. Appears to go into... Read more

  • Small holster for AA and CR123a lights

    posted byfrills on 03/19/2009

    Good nylon and stitching for a cheap holster. D-ring attachment point for a carabiner. Button snap belt loop for convenient attachment and removal. Good fit for many 1xAA or 1xCR123a lights. Button snap on the belt loop may be a con for some as it... Read more

    Good quality nylon and stitching for a cheap holster. Fits most 2xAA lights, bezel up or down for secure fit depending on thickness. D-ring for carabiner attachment. Slide-through belt loop, so it won't ever come undone on you. Belt loop being may... Read more

  • open top holster for mid-size lights

    posted byfrills on 03/19/2009

    Good build quality for a cheap nylon holster. Metal D-ring attachment point for a carabiner. Slide-through belt loop, so it will never unsnap on you. The elastic sides have a useful amount of stretch without being overly stretchy. Belt loop being... Read more

  • cool-looking light

    posted byfrills on 02/15/2009

    Good output. Solid aluminum construction. Cool camo pattern. Grippy latex finish. O-ring sealed. Solid tail click switch. It's a P60 host and will accept drop-ins. Takes 18650 or CR123 cells. Latex finish also tends to scratch easily, revealing a... Read more
