The right direction but poor execution

This light looks so very, very promising.   54mm head, 1*18650, side switch, nice lanyard and a great price.

Sadly the plug-in charging port, plastic reflector & lens plus a (probably) hollow pill ruin it.

It is so very much in the right direction but the poor execution kills it.Cry

I wonder if the MRV reflector would fit? Its a bit reminiscent of the old Tiablo A10.

Unlikely because this light is a far larger head.   The stats say it is 54mm.

Gotta admit I was tempted but then I decided to sleep it over since I already have a ton of new lights on the way. I think I'll wait until the first reviews show on the DX forums in a few weeks. My mail carrier hates me already - no need to make it worse. Big Smile

Im with Oxy on this one. I kind of want it and almost did it last night but I think I will wait. I dont think it's a bad light for the price. My mother in law needs a new light and the side switch is a big positive.

My guess is side switches will make a big comeback in 2012 ..they need a new thing  ...sometimes an new push of an old thing seems like a new thing .
