[Review] Nightwatch NS53A single cell 21700 pocket rocket @ 9900lm

I've had a NS53A (one of the NSX3 lights) for a few months now and thought I'd write a review on it. https://davestechreviews.wordpress.com/2020/05/24/nightwatch-nsx3-ns53a-... It's my first proper review, so any feedback or questions about the light are welcome.

Really nice and in-depth review. The only thing missing would be actual output numbers.

Thanks for your detailed and valuable review. I ordered four of these a few months ago, received one promptly and my supplier told me that there are no more in the pipeline. I am glad I got one of these red hot little screamers, and I absolutely love it!

Thanks. I’m going to have a go at making a calibrating shoebox and I’ll see if I can make some graphs.

I’ve added some runtime graphs to the review: https://davestechreviews.wordpress.com/2020/05/24/nightwatch-nsx3-ns53a-... (scroll down lots).

These are using a cereal box integrating “sphere” but should be good enough to give rough numbers.
