What I got today ! Fri 18th Mar - 2011

I went to the letter box , just to check , since I hadnt heard the Postman .

To my surprise , there was a Package from the Good old USA ! My Nitecore Ex10 SP [ XP-E R2 Emitter ] has arrived . [ Darn fast too - Something for HK post to aspire to ] 

http://budgetlightforum.com/node/1585  

Its nice and compact for a tail clicky RCR123A light [ About the same size as the Ultrafire WF-602C ] 

I also odered the clip [ Love EDC with clip ] , as I like to carry with the light cliped to a pocket .. And the clip is very much up to the task , one of the best clips I have come across .

The small screws were a little fidly , but with a bit of fidling , the clip was attached . 

The UI [ user interface ] is different for sure [ from the usual 5 mode lights ] . And takes a little getting used to [ a bit of fun ] .

ATM the button is a little stiff , but with use , I expect it will smooth out . [ I expect its a little stiff as the light seems very airtight and pressing the button seems to compress the air inside ]

Build quality is excellent [ as one would expect from Nitecore ] , and you can really feel it using the light [ Ok maybe I can understand why some folks like expensive lights ] 

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….

Good looking torch. Did you buy that one off of Boaz? So, the question is... How soon before that r2 turns into an xml? Smile

Edit: I just read the sales thread where you thanked Boaz for the fast shipping. Question answered. Now, about that xml...

I was thinking more along the lines of XP-E R5 actually ..

But first I will have to find out how to open it [ head ] , if I can do it  without killing it . 

I know a few people have moded the light , but if memory serves , quite a few have been damaged as well ..

And from what I see so far [ review in a few days ] set up for the clicky is tricky [ tricky clicky ] .. 

I will check to see how other folks have done it , and if its worth trying .. [ + This is my first Expensive ? light in quite a few years ]
