OK - I've had this light for about a week now, and I must say it is a bit brighter than your average light.  It puts light everywhere!  Great tool to have indoors and out!  Because it doesn't have a "warm-up" time like an HID, you get instant fun!  Haven't tried any of the smaller wattage bulbs yet - but why would I?  ;)

Another note:  I obtained the "turnkey" package which included the multivoltage charger - great for charging the "Torch" battery pack, but as a bonus, it can used to charge my Mag85 (9AA) battery pack and the batteries for my ACRO X990!

No pic, sorry but very happy to check in with mine.  Pewter, grooved, turn key package.  Look folks, this the THE definition of WOW light.  My friends have literally said WTF is THAT!!  HID is great, and I love it, but this is a serious toy, and one every flashaholic should aspire to.  :thumbup:

You guys make me soooo jealous.  I'm so far down on Mac's "to do" list, that he may never get that far, and, has suggested same.  :'(

Well, here's hoping, and, enjoy!  :)

Can't wait to here the stories - I've been trying to find my Maglite belt clip holder - again this light is a great sleeper - even with the added flutes/fins.  Especially when you say - "oh there must be something wrong with YOUR Maglite - perhaps it needs batteries?"

Last night, I didn't get to play as long as I wished - but hopefully I will have some more downtime later this week!
