2011 is only 2 days old , but the itch

Yeah , the itch to buy a new light is hitting hard , especially since I havent bought anything all year !  

Im looking high and low , to see whats new .. and interesting .  

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….

Same here, but I'm gonna wait until my Quark Mini shows up until pull the trigger on anything new.  On the other hand, I got offered a killer deal on a nice Jetbeam.  Hm...

The Nitecore D10/11  is tempting ... I want the infinitely variable one ..  Lightake has the D11 , but ?? is it two mode or variable ? 

Oh dear oh dear !  Also the MrLite X4 looks interesting [?]

I think I might enjoy window shopping for a little while ..

Same here. I have 5 orders containing 8 flashlights, flying around somewhere since more than a month. All with stupid China Snail Mail!

There are not so many 16340 sliding zoom lights around. At least not for this price.

Eze, did you fill a claim with PP ? if not any seller dumb enough to send a 50 usd flaslight without registered mail deserved it. If later arrive you can repay it. Suerte!

I made just two small orders this year and plan to stop the spend since almost all , around 15, buyed last december did not arrived yet plus two from october. Anyway most are emitters, reflectors and such to improve some nice cheap hosts which I already own , job wich I think is much more fun than keep untouched expensives torchs.

I started a dispute last year.. ok, 12/30 Silly but I didn't receive any answers yet..

 

I'm waiting one of the 6usd TR-801 from ebay (I think from HK), this Quark, and a Quark Mini AA Ti that I bought 15 days after the first one

El servidor es medio malo, y las páginas no cargan la mitad de las veces, cuando tengas un rato volvelo a intentar que está bueno el ambiente. Cada un par de días aparece alguien nuevo, así que funciona el sistema de registro de usuarios (mal, pero funciona).

 

Sorry for the offtopic

i was looking at this one too ..I'm not a huge 16340 fan. but this one is oddly interesting ..and rally who doesn't love a zoomer "Zoom Zoom".. the only other 16349 I own is a smallsun zy-c-55..    It looks just like the sipik with a side button and a spacer to run either  a AA or a 16340  http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.50171

I've taken the plunge on a Cree XM-L T6 5 mode 2X18650 at KD. My excuse comes down to having a few unused 18650's, and being plain old curious about these XM-L's.

I'll let you know how it goes.

The last one is very nice.. if i could use 10440 with that one, I would buy it.

 

Anyway, i'm in love with this one http://www.cnqualitygoods.com/goods.php?id=1036 but i haven't find any more information, and it's pretty expensive..

I was actually able to delay getting a NEW flashlight by picking up a couple of 14500s to play with in my existing lights.  All I can say is WOW to the Sipik SK68 on a 14500.  It is a serious pocket rocket.

It appears to be a clone of the Jillite J2 design. They are quite a long way from cheap.

http://www.jillite.com/front/php/category.php?cate_no=93 

Yours for US$267 for the fancy one down to $151 for the "cheap" one. My Korean reading skills don't exist so can't say any more.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.
