    New Review JIL-Lite CR2 DD UP

    Hi,

    Don't think this is a double post!

    This is the Direct Drive version of the excellent JIL-Lite.

    Similar to the regulated one I reviewed the other day.
    But shorter, cheaper and longer running! May be a better emergency light that the 1.3W but has less WOW factor.

    The runtime caught me out and I had to stop at 13 Hours.

    I'll have another go in the future. When I can work my new meter properly.

    Thanks

    Mark

    Possibly the smallest, longest running, cheapest one!

    I think.

    Or how about toss a coin?

    Both are very good lights for the money.

    Re: New Review JIL-Lite CR2 DD UP

    I've just updated my JIL-Lite with the addition of this excellent little FluPIC PCB. See Here :- http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...ad.php?t=95886

    It now works as a fully adjustable light with multiple modes and features.

    See this operating instruction sheet :- http://img403.imageshack.us/my.php?i...upicv212lq.jpg

    WOW. Is my first impression to this upgrade. This is now one TINY keychain light with more features than you can shake a large stick at.

    I'll do a proper review when I get chance.

    Thanks
