PROS
Work great.
CONS
Need re-wrapping. Weld spots protrude, may scratch some lights.
These are as good as any fresh laptop battery pulls you are going to get. The double-sided tape attached is annoying as hell to remove. Using a iMAX B8+ hobby charger: 2289mAh discharge from 4.2V to 3.0V @ 1A 2531mAh discharge form 4.34V to 3.0V @ 1A Rewrap with this: (nowhere near as bright purple) https://www.fasttech.com/products/1323903

PROS
Sturdy, thick and large.
CONS
Velcro is always annoying.
Same standard bag you get at hobby stores. I have another one a third the size which cost me twice as much from a local hobby store, and it's the same build quality. You'd have to be charging 6 large packs in parallel to fill this bag. Placing the charger itself inside the bag is NOT recommended!!! This inhibits heat flow from the charger, will increase the risk of fire and could do some serious damage.

PROS
Solar not just a gimmick. Very decent runtime. Bright (very visible)
CONS
Needs to be put in sun (not Not the best build quality. Can't handle water drenching. Keeps 'drooping'
I have the exact same model, purchased well over a year and a half ago from a seller on eBay, so based on my experience with FastTech, this one is just as good, if not better. Still works perfectly fine! Biggest gripe I have about it is that I have a weird diameter seat tube, which means that the light doesn't fit perfectly, and as a result, the light begins to 'droop' and face downward after going over bumps and cracks on my less-than-forgiving road bike. A little bit of PVA glue does the trick just fine, try not to use super glue because it will make the plastic too brittle. One time I rode in very wet conditions without a mudguard, and the light was drenched in water. After it dried off and charged in the sun, it worked totally normally. It's completely made of plastic, most of it matte black and rubberised, but feels very decent, especially for the price. Light is bright and is very visible, great strobe modes. Very much recommended by me, would buy again if mine broke.

PROS
Light Easy to mod/adjust Aluminium
CONS
Not the best machining Needs more fins No screws
I used this to mount a Cree MT-G2 LED at >80% power (around 20W), and it held up well for at least half an hour, and after that it was pretty steady causing minimal heat sag. There are quite a few machining artifacts but it's definitely a lot cheaper than alternatives out there and was perfect for my situation. If mounting a serious power LED, get the one with more fins.
