Yes that’s the official Ultrafire shop in China were you can find out if you got a real Ultrafire product or pay full retail if you want to get a real Ultrafire product.

I am already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth.

And where you can pay $45 for a 504B with a XM-L drop-in. I had no idea Ultrafires were so expensive. No wonder there are so many fakes.

Are you very sure? I’m ever the skeptic when I see this site come up.

Here are my thoughts:

1 – You would think UF (“Ultrafire”) would have a better looking website. I may be a little too critical being someone with internet marketing background but I’ve see grandma’s blog page looking better…

2 – I would not put “beware of fake products” on the front page of the company website, whether retail or not. I understand conterfeits is a major issue with these flashlights however it’s just plain unprofessional and bad marketing to associate negativity directly or indirectly with your company.

3 – The “About Me” link (s/b About the Company) doesn’t give any background on the company or person running this company. This is where UF should assure the readers we’re dealing with the legitimate UF.

I want to know when the company started, where the head office is based, and maybe a mailing address if available. Where are the products are made? Who runs it? Who are the major suppliers and distributors if any? Most company website gives you this information. I would expect the same especially if they’re telling the world “I am the legitimate UF company” especially in a market full of conterfeits.

Just my 2 cents.

Purchase at your own risk.

The about me (or lack there of) kinda turned me off as well. Otherwise I actually like the lay out of their site. I like Ultrafire (except it is like a box of chocolates) but am concerned about fakes. I need to ask them where they are shipping from and who the heck they are (about them). Maybe others will chime in.
