On the higher end of budget for this type of light, but noticed that ITC is selling a zoom light with a Cree R2 on sale for $15 at the moment. I have not been able to fidn any info on it. A 3XAAA isn't really my preference, but if this is as good as the Solarforce that ITC sells it may be worth it anyway. Anyone try one of these? Any comments?
I am really not a fan, the 'zoom' is pretty useless, the beam looks horrible and the build quality is sub-par. perhaps this model is totally different but everything from reflector to light up clicky etc. is the same :S plus i am not a fan of 3 AAA lights.
It seems like this one is getting pretty good marks from people who bought it ..http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.44573 I like edi-t lights they have some quality feel to them . I can't personally vouch for this light but for 12 bucks .. I'd say buy it on the quality of the edi-t t6 that I have purchased before .. it's on my wish list too..!! There is a guy on cpf who collects these zoomers and has everyone ever made ..You may wanna hunt him down or like I said .. for 12 bucks roll the dice
I should note that it's phenomenally easy to modify these lights to take 18650s, and to rip out the crappy tailswitch and replace it. I don't know if this is the place to do it, so I'll throw up a thread in the Modding section
