PROS
Many different colors and modes Replaceable batteries Rather cheap
CONS
Too big for some glasses One out of six had drained batteries
Everybody likes them and it's quite fun to see all those lights moving around as people walk with their drinks. Each time you press the little switch it turns on and off with a different color: red, blue, green, red+blue, red+green, blue+green, all three steady and color changing. That allows for each person to easily spot it's drink based on the color. However they are bigger then i expected and wont fit in smaller glasses. I ordered 18 of them and 3 had drained batteries. Be sure to order extra cells (CR1620 SKU1173000). So far i've used 8 on one night and they worked as expected. The next day i found out one had liquid inside though... Overall a fun little gadget i would recommend.

PROS
Beautiful Price Real glass Unique pieces
CONS
May break
I bought a few of those SS + glass drip tips and i'm very pleased. The glass part is unique from one to the other. And what i like most is the transparency and depth of the colored glass. It makes it looks more like a jewels. It is quite beautiful in the light. A really unique drip tip at a very reasonable price.

PROS
Small Bright Uses AA or 14500 batteries Dimable Can tailstand Removable/reversible clip Good build quality Light weight Side switch
CONS
Dimmer only acts between 'mid' and 'high'
With a reasonably well driven XM-L2 this EDC AA flashlight is one of the brightest and one of the smallest i have. The build quality is very decent with well machined threads and a glass lens. With a regular alkaline AA battery it is quite surprising, but once you load it with a Li-Ion 14500 it is impressive. The beam is well balanced with a good throw and a nice flood around. As airbag mentions it in his previous review, you can access an 'extra low' mode by pressing the switch for a couple seconds when the light is off. This is convenient if you don't want to cycle through the other modes to get a bit of light without waking up everybody around. Although the dimmer is convenient, i'm a bit disappointed that it only acts in between the 'mid' and 'hight' modes - you can't really dim it down to a very faint level. This is not the cheapest AA flashlight you can find, but it is a very well built, compact and bright one. You know why you spent extra money on this one, and i'm glad i did. I definitely recommend this light.

PROS
Cheap Nice looking
CONS
Poorly adjusted parts Loose spring Rattling 'switch'
At first i liked it a lot. It is a nice and rather small mod that goes well with chromed atomizers like the Protank and others. But it proved rather unpractical and somewhat annoying. The bottom spring under the battery is loose and will fall out whenever you change the battery. To get it back in place you have to blindly drop it inside hoping it will settle in the right position. But the most annoying part is the so called switch. There is no switch in fact... you have to 'pump' the top portion down like on a bicycle pump to fire the mod. Although it could work it happens that the parts are so poorly adjusted that it sort of rattles - no smooth at all. Overall i've stopped using it and would not recommend it regardless of the low price.

PROS
Cheap Rather well built Uses common AAA batteries Throws a decent amount of light for the size
CONS
A bit long
This small, one mode, single AAA led flashlight is well worth it's price. It is rather well made. Both front and back ends can be unscrewed and the threads are sealed with O-rings which should make it reasonably waterproof. It's small and light, and will fit easily in any pocket, bag or glove compartment. The clip is simple but strong enough. It produces a fair amount of light for the size and will certainly prove handy in many situations. Overall a good buy.
