Alright, first one to get this new 3VP-RS v1 Naked Light and installed it today. I chose to mount it in the console. FlyzEye does extremely well with packaging and instructions/labeling:
Even threw in some extra batteries, a thank you card, and their logo decal, very cool and this is what I love about this company, just going the extra mile.
Install was super quick and easy, maybe 7-8 minutes, just followed the above instructions. The adhesive on the back of the mounting bracket is super strong so make sure to use the masking tape to mount the light where it will function optimally before sticking it on. (I accidentally pulled the adhesive backing off and the bracket stuck to the actual light due to the magnetism, but I got it off, close one!)
The lighting plate itself is very solid, as is the mounting bracket, and is really well made. The actuation magnet and functioning of the switch works flawlessly when opening and closing the console lid. You can tell a lot of time and effort was put into this little device. The LEDs themselves are very sufficient at lighting the entire console, but not too bright that it hurts your eyes.
FlyzEye used a function from there V2/V1 models in that you can actually pull the light off from the magnetized bracket and use it Independently instead of just where you mounted it, making this unit even more functional, which I like a lot. However, the only negative I have with this is the mounting bracket. The magnetism between the actual light and its bracket aren't as strong as FlyzEye's V2/V1. The light wants to slide on the bracket too easily and I feel like a few good bumps would knock the light off. (Hasn't happened, just speculation). I would like to feel a click in or more firmness from the mounting bracket to ensure it won't fall off. Also maybe add a cover over the body to cover the batteries and throw a FlyzEye logo on that! Would also protect the reed switch when pulling things in and out of the console, I don't think it's that fragile and don't know if covering it would effect the functionality, but just an idea.
With all that said, this is an awesome product, and gives you great light into the console area without switching in the map/dome lights. I will be getting one for the glove compartment too. Thanks guys and keep up the great work.
Not so great iphone pics:
The shadows in this pic are from my cd case sticking up in front of one of the lights, these lights do a perfect job for this space.
