New headlamp at DX, Nextorch Viker Star

Was just browsing DX new stuff and this appeared:

In description Q5 but it seems to be R3 emitter according to this:

Seems promising with that 3xAA setup and newish emitter. It also seems to have magnetic control!

 

The downsides are also obvious; regulation seems to be quite poor, although runtime not that bad.

I bet it has more of a spottish style beam, also features a SOS-mode...

 

Price: 31$, post if you have this or happen to test it!:)
