  • Nice P60 host

    posted bygearhounds on 04/18/2010

    Very nice even glossy finish, alum bezel ring, and almost recessed enough tail cap. Fits well in SF V70 carrier, anti-roll bezel works well. Bright when powered by 18650 with good runtime. Tail switch is typical so-so quality reverse clicky, tail... Read more

  • Nicely made light

    posted bygearhounds on 09/16/2009

    Very well made, great finish, clean threading, reasonably bright for a 3 button cell light. Tint is not bad at all. Cheap to feed when you get the batteries at DX (50 for $4.85! sku 60). Tasteful logo lettering looks sharp. No complaints, except a... Read more

  • A nice option, could use tweaking

    posted bygearhounds on 08/01/2009

    XP-E emitter, easy drop in for P60 ready lights. Mode memory for last mode used. Nice tight spot with sufficient flood. OVERDRIVEN! With a single Li-on, don't know how long it will last. Driver board a little hinky; when activated, has about a 1/4... Read more

  • Great bargain

    posted bygearhounds on 03/09/2009

    Great batteries, DX finally packaging tightly so no loose, discharging cells. Literally only 10 of these were at 1.59V, the rest at 1.6-1.62V. Uniform in size and without defects. Nary a one! Mine came with a piece of cardboard tightly taped in so... Read more

  • Nice streamlined P60 host

    posted bygearhounds on 01/28/2009

    Streamlined medium weight light that comes with what appears to be sku 11836 Super Bright R2 drop in. Finish seems very tough and is a nice black matte finish instead of the pictured shiny polished one. Threads are well cut and are clean of all be... Read more

  • Great economical option

    posted bygearhounds on 01/26/2009

    Great little 2 channel charger and at the right price. Foolproof design that charges the batteries it was intended to with no issues. Even an unprotected battery left on well past the green light will only go to about 4.21V. Multimeter shows as to... Read more

  • Even better deal with the price drop

    posted bygearhounds on 01/15/2009

    As usual, very bright with CR123 or RCR123 batteries. Works in a variety of P60 ready lights with no mods. Perfect white tint with no naked eye changes in tint between the 10 I ordered. Out of 10, a couple displayed less fine worksmanship with or... Read more

  • Very nice

    posted bygearhounds on 11/24/2008

    VERY bright with a standard alkaline AA, and my Energizer rechargeables. Outstanding close to mid range performance. Very well built with an even finish and all threads clean, tight, and free of burrs or anodizing. Beefy construction that provides... Read more

  • Slight blem but functional

    posted bygearhounds on 10/27/2008

    Good finish and all threads clean and smooth with almost no play. Smooth reflector with no flaws. O-rings throughout, nice beefy pill, reasonable mass for heat sinking. Mine had uneven rim on the front bezel ring; leaves a slight gap between the a... Read more

  • Great DYI kit

    posted bygearhounds on 09/18/2008

    Very nice kit, tightly machined threads with no sloppy looseness, clean even finish, all O-rings included. Threads are bright and free of anodizing where necessary for maximum electrical conduction. Truly only need a driver and emitter to get mass... Read more
