Even though SKU was correctly printed on packet, what I got was 28awg wire, which is useful to carry just signal level/toy stuff, not at all suitable for high current applications. Fasttech customer care rocks though, they promptly refunded once I contacted them with proof. Everytime I interact with their customer care team, I am amazed at their speed and professionalism.

PROS
Good build quality and heatsinking
CONS
Integrated pill means difficult assembly process
I used this host with a cyan luxeon rebel led on sinkpad. Beam pattern is balanced between floody and throw, with small bright hotspot, surrounding corona and wide spill. If you are going to use this for a normal (white) flashlight, XML/ MTG may be better choice than XP-G/XP-L/Nichia 219 (you will get larger hotspot with large die leds that blends to spill better).

Using this in India to run a BQ-CC17 eneloop charger meant for North America. The fit is tight.

PROS
Dirt cheap
CONS
Poor tolerance
I had identical looking lenses (lens and holder fully assembled) from a US reseller (StevesLED), they had higher price, but much better quality. These fasttech ones came with lenses and holders separate, but (i) the press fit assembly was a royal pain in the back for some of the lenses (due to protruding plastic molds and poor tolerances) (ii) Poor centering of the cutout in white holder meant 1-2 lens were unusable (iii) Scratch marks deeply embedded into the mold of almost all the lenses (scratches were not due to transportation, I can tell by viewing and touching the top surface)
