This light is SO FABulous!

http://dx.com/p/sofab-rechargeable-cree-xr-e-q5-180lm-1-mode-white-light...

Just wondering if anyone had tried this light? It is rechargeable, has a side clicky, AND has a 58mm head (bigger than the Jacob A60). I realize the charging function is scary to use, and it is only one mode and rated at 180 lumens but you never know….

Also, I never noticed the side switch X9 clone either.

While I’m at it, nobody ever has bought one of these newer recoils have they? Only $13.30 with supposedly a coated glass lens.

It has a built in charger, do you get the power cord for the charger? I have on order a similar light, the Keygos KE-303. I would have it now but it came registered and I was not at home. Have to wait for Monday.

That first light looks pretty long for just one (18650) battery.

Also, what’s with the new DX website? When I get it all in my browser frame the print is so small I’d need a microscope to read it.

Hold the ctrl button and use your scroll wheel to scroll up. Should fix it.

I believe it is longer because of the built in charger. What do you think of charging a Li-ion in a pipe with threaded caps at both ends?

I know but that increase everything and not just the font size so by the time I can read the print the overall page is 20 times too big.

DX is the only site where this is an issue and only the new version of DX.
