Decent quality.
CONS
Only comes in two per pack.
Ordered this twice. First time I put up a ticket, same thing happened the second time. Only two heatsinks come per order.

Bright. Nice beam. Good spread. Rear red light corresponding to light mode out the front. Doesn't get too hot. Works with one or two 18650s. Simple, straightforward UI.
CONS
Rigid plastic which holds the bands together makes for an awkward wear/feel. Kinks in the emitter housing makes for a poor screw-in feel. Angle adjustment not very fine. Plastic angle adjustment notches could wear out quickly. Wouldn't recommend using the charging port. No real low mode.
I take this out on the water when crabbing. I don't have to worry about whether it gets damaged cos it's cheap. Yet it is still plenty bright enough for the task and has a really nice smooth beam which is great for close quarters work. Has it's niggles and is nowhere near as comfortable as my Nitecore HC50, but is still great value for money.

Tint is perfect for dedoming. (comes out around 4B tint after dedome) Really cheap.
CONS
Not the best MCPCB for heat-sinking.
I bought this mainly to reflow a new emitter onto a Noctigon Copper MCPCB after the previous attempt at dedoming failed. It worked perfectly.

It works. Pretty powerful (clear). Can adjust angle.
CONS
You'll probably need another cable. Volume Control is purely for USB playback. Frequency setting buttons are hard to press.
It might get in the way of your gearstick if it's too close. Sometimes the frequency resets all the way back down. I found setting a frequency and turning it off (by pressing the circle) and back on again saves the frequency.

Feels good. Thick plugs. Heavy coiled cable. Flat black. Strong strain reliefs.
CONS
None found.
Looks like a cable that I'll be able to use for a long time to come.
