Cheap & small Fits the usual 16mm stars & 17mm driver Deep pill to allow thick driver GITD rubber boot actually glows
CONS
Reflector has alot of free space inside the host Poor quality lanyard Reflector base is more suited for XR-E emitter Not able to tailstand Don't seem to be quite weather-proof.
I got this little host to try to build my smallest EDC flashlight. It was able to fit the most common 16mm star & 17mm driver, so it was a plus for me since I had plenty of spare parts lying around. The reflector has alot of space when it is inside the host, so alignment was quite difficult. I used some aluminium tape to increase the diameter of the reflector's head so that it doesn't have too much space to move around inside. The reflector's base is build for XR-E emitter because if you are using any other emitters, your wires will have a good contact with the base of the reflector. This can be solved by using the gasket adhesive but you will have some limitations to the focusing that you want because of the gasket thickness. The battery tube & the tail cap is combined in 1 piece. I am not a big fan of reverse clicky so I will be changing it with a forward clicky soon. You will need a long sharp head tweezers to be able to reach the base of the battery tube to remove the switch. My copy is not able to tail stand because the rubber boot is protruding slightly. I put in a XM-L with a 8*7135 driver with 3 modes. Due to the depth of the reflector, this little flashlight cannot throw very far but the flood is pretty impressive. And running this at 100% (in my case 2.8A) can cause the flashlight to heat up very quickly due to low amount of metal. All in all, I am impressed with the size, price & the quality of the light that is thrown out.

+ Spins more than 5 mins out of the box. + Does not wobble + Replaceable R188 bearing
CONS
- Mine has several stain marks & some were not able to come off after cleaning - Not sure if it brass or some other metal
For this price, this spinner outdo most spinners several times its price. It is very small & compact so it slips into my pocket nicely. It has a good weight on it so it really does spin very well & long.

Comes in pack of 10
CONS
Could be cheaper
Original usage is to increase the height of batteries with flat top. I managed to find some use when I am building my P60 dropin modules. They are able to fill in the empty space of the driver-side pill & this will increase the thermal mass of the pill.

PROS
-Square threads for both tailcap, bezel & bezel ring. -Anodizing is pretty well done. -Bezel is quite heavy, good for heatsinking -Driver cavity is deep enough for 2 sided drivers & still able to use the retaining ring.
CONS
-New version does not have a removable pill, making it quite tricky to thread wires through it. -Tailcap retainer ring is very difficult to remove, hence not able to change the switch. -Battery tube is a little too short for 2 x 18350.
Build a MT-G2 with 4A & it gets warm fast when on high mode. The reflector gives it a very bright hot-spot & usable spill around it. Other than the non removable pill making it difficult to thread the wires, everything else is pretty awesome with this host. It is relatively cheap & extremely well made.

Extend height of pills
CONS
Both inner & outer diameter are not accurate
I bought 3 pieces & being a 17 to 17mm ring, they should sit on one another nicely BUT they don't. I have to use a hammer to press them onto each other & after all 3 are seated on each other, the 3 rings doesn't seem to be rounded properly. To make things worst, the rings bend under excessive force. I bent 1 of the ring quite badly that I couldn't use it anymore.
