I like aluminum, don't get me wrong. But the benefits of titanium under harsh use conditions is ideal. I don't care so much about the shiny factor, it will look stonewashed soon enough. You should have seen my old Ti pd-s and Ti clicky.
^ Yeah, well thats because you have a reliable mailman who delivers your stuff on time! My mail-guy will come at 10am one day, then not come til 5:30pm the next day! Its 1pm now, and he still aint here...... I probably wont see my 2 D25's(A and C) til tonight....... If he manages to get it here today at all.
The treads are pretty stiff, what is the best lube for this kind of light?
I agree about the threads not being so great. Mine wanted to strip on the tailcap end, and the washers fell out, and the switch isnt attached, and it was very tight, causing the threads to want to strip again. Then I noticed you can put the batteries in through the head instead of the tail cap, and it has longer threads, and doesnt have washers or switches falling out, so I think its better to install the batteries through the head.
As far as lube, you have to use the right kind. I used a little bit of soy based, thick lithium grease. But not much, and I didnt get it on the battery or anywhere other than the threads. Thats important. I wiped off any excess lube. But to be honest, I am not sure that lithium grease is or isnt the best lube for this type of situation, but it has worked for me, and I use lithium grease for all kinds of stuff, with no problems.
got mine today,,LJ is aweome at shipping!!what can i say,,a very nice ti light at a great price.got the cool white and its nice and bright not too green and the finish is surprisingly good.this is my first ti light and im very happy with it.
my views on the light are in par with the other members' opinions. hopefully i will flip this light for what i paid including s+h.
my 15 dollar 1 mode rominsen rcc3 r2 serves my the micro cr123 compact purpose. in reality, i have to edc something bigger.
in other words, with Liion we can produce
That's a total of 3 different brightness levels as opposed to "5" (moon, low, med, high, turbo). Note: Since in reality the MED's are slightly different, we get 6 different brightness levels with CR123A as opposed to "5" or "7" (Hi2 = Hi1).
Well, 3 is better than 2. And 3 is for sure better than 1 (=direct drive on all modes). And none of the blinking modes is lost with LiIon's. Altogether not perfect for EDC (with LiIon) but not too shabby in my books either.
So does the general consensus of owners reflect a positive note? I think my light is fantastic. how did anyone unscrew the tail end of the light? I would never have tried to replace the battery any other way but unscrewing the head.
Yeah I think it is a very nice light, I have the D25A. Other than the stiff threads, which I ordered some grease for, I haven't seen any problems. (thanks beach honda!!) For a single AA this is a very impressive light!!! I wasn't expecting the walls to be thick like my titanium jetbeam, they are not the same light. At a third the price one should not expect it to be.
