Which XPG Drop-In

Hi All,

Following on from my previous post, were my  Kaidomain Ultrafire WF-502B XPG R5 died. It seems I am having no luck with Kaidomain in getting a replacement drop-in module.

So the question is which XPG R5 drop in module would you recommend? I read that the itc_shop from ebay has quality drop-ins? Has anyone bought from them?

I have too. ITC is one of the better dealers from HK. All other than americans have to pay

2$ in postage there. Dont mind that, they ship registered, which is safer and faster.

 

Their dropins are all quality items, so if you want that, have a fine comm with the

vendor, and wnat to get them fast, use ITC for solarforce products.

Thanks

Another silly question here. The original flashlight I bought was the, Ultrafire WF-502B 3.7V~4.2V CREE XPG R5 WC LED 5-Mode.

Does this mean that the drop in module I buy needs to be in the same V range of 3.7V~4.2V ??

No. You can choose anyone you like. If you choose a max 8.4 volt you can use 2xRCR123A batteries in it

Aww shit, I just bought that. Let's hope their quality control is so poor that they let a good one slip through.

 

How did yours die?
