Nice..

But aren't #2 and #3 the same?

And #8 is AA? Looks more like cr123

I am also wondering about number 8,
I just know the cr123 version of this light
I have number 7 on order…

I haven’t seen number two yet, but I know someone here machined this knurling by himself…

I believe 2 is the newer version. Longer in length and knurling type. Price is about the same though.

I think #2 has a fixed reflector, i.e. not a zoomie.

I found a good ‘buy it now’ deal on #7:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/390841620308?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3...

$4.91 free shipping

[edit]
1× 14500 only! not AA !
Makes sense though, with that 3mm ‘direct connect’ charging port.

I’ve owned #5 before. It’s larger than SK68 and not as bright. I also prefer push/pull zoom rather than ring.

Just received this one:

It’s the floodiest AA zommie I’ve ever seen, the beam is more than twice wider than SK68. It’s a bit dimmer when focused. The lens optically seems to be similar to SK68. It’s larger an heavier than SK68. Not bad overall.

It’s Yupard light from Aliexpress nice little light that can be resistor mod for extra bump.. I change the LEDs to XP-E2 on noctigon and switch the lens with 19“mm aspheric and now it out throw my SC03 significantly Big Smile
the reflector are plastic so you can use thicker wires and no worry about shorting Wink

The only way to do a great work is to love what you do.

My opinion:

  1. and #10 the worst flashlights i never bought. #3 is a great deception in all ways.
  2. a sipik sk68 clone is a must have in a collection for the price.

I have the same than Peregrulla, it’s not bad for the price paided but the flood isn’t a circle it’s between a circle and a square…

I agree about #10 “Police 3Watt”.
It’s pure crap..
But, probably depends on which manufacturer makes them.
The body fits 16340 though. In other words: It’s drilled out to the max…
  1. is also available from various manufacturers, with various ‘construction solutions’.
    Some have a ground down default lens, some have better suited optics..
    It is on of the slimmest AA zoomies available though, and in grey / silver I quite like the looks too.
    They come with 1 or 3 modes.
    It’s a gamble.. Sad

Some suggestions, pictures are links:


AKOray 1xAA / 14500
$6.— at CNQualitygoods
———————


‘Fake i3s’ 1x AAA
$4.71 at Wallbuys
Yes, it’s brown… and only available in brown…
O, I mean “tan”, as they put it..
“Faecal” anyway..
Cute though!
———————


1x AA / 14500 Weird little light. $9.15 at TomTop
———————


1x AAA SingFire SF-348 Super Mini Torch $7.26 at DealsMachine

———————

Some tips for modders:


Cheap fake C3 $2.74 at ebay. 1 or 2x AA
With one of these you can extend 2 sk68s for 2x AA. Big Smile
It’s even rather nice quality (not the intestines though..)
———————


$3.42 at ebay 1x AA
A horrible light as is, but a very nice body! Sturdy and well built 4 parts body (tailcap, tube, head, bezel).
Has a glass lens too.
Great as a host, fits 20mm TIRs incl their holder perfectly.

No #2(non CREE emitter) are fixed and #3(CREE emitter) are zoomies !

My preference goes to #2 for a further throw without the convex lens since most of us already own SK68, if you want the versatility of a zoomie without the bulk of the SK68 then #3 is a great alternative.

My new favorite thread!

I found #16 thanks to djozz at http://budgetlightforum.com/node/29494#comment-570239
It has a much nicer flood and zoom than the SK68s, and on his suggestion there I found I can swap amber LEDs in easily.

(and I’m hoping the price drops; cheapest so far seems to be http://www.dealsmachine.com/best_141829.html
Some places (DX I think) show an old and new version of that light for sale side by side, slightly different prices.
Maybe somewhere in this list: http://m.dx.com/c/flashlights-lasers-999/led-flashlights-901/aa-flashlig...
or this one: http://m.dx.com/c/flashlights-lasers-999/led-flashlights-901/14500-flash...
