    Nice. They are great little lights. You can run 14500 batteries in them too if you want to really push the LED

    I ordered 4 as well. One review on the lights said they get pretty hot with the 14500 battery. May want to watch for that.

    Heat shouldn't be a problem. Just treat the batteries with respect. They aren't your everyday battery. They can explode with a fury if they are damaged :eek3:

    I've used these with 14500s for a long time and haven't found heat to be an issue. It does depend on usage though. If you're going to be using the light for 30 minutes at a time, heat could be a problem. I'd say more typical usage would be a minute here and there wouldn't you say?

    Sounds like something you wouldn't want kids playing with or even near kids.

    Absolutely not. The LED itself is extremely bright and can probably damage eyes. Adult only flashlight for sure! Not a toy!

    I have a few of those. They can be temperamental at times. Sometimes I can charged two phones, other times only one works.

    It depends on how much they draw. Both ports can power 2.1 amps but if one device is drawing heavy on one port, the other won't get much juice.

    No. Same phones. Just sometimes they work and sometimes they don't. I speculate that its the rotating plug and the contacts getting worn. I use it when I travel and depending on where I am plugging it into it gets spun alot.

    Wtf. That's lame. I got an email a few days ago saying my order is delayed. I wonder if I'll get canceled too.

    Anyone have any good links for deals to watch for on Black Friday/Cyber Monday?

    Specifically, I'd like to get a bit of a deal on an iPod Touch, but am interested in it all.
