I just got one off ebay <$3, i am shocked how good this thing is. I really like the pull push zoom feature (always wanted a light that does that). It looks like there’s slight updates to many flaws previously described (cleaner, and better machined?). I put in a lithium battery at 3.7+ volt, its very bright, and heats up with prolonged usage. Poor CRI as its very white, but I don’t mind. This gives my $60+ emissar D4 a run for its money. apples to oranges, but I, too, would highly recommend this to any/everyone.

C8+ (osram mod) - FT03 (pending repair) - Chaselight (hack dedome) - FW3A (W aux TIR) - Sofirn C8T - Emissar D4 (W aux TIR) - Convoy S2+ - Sipik (rip) - Solarforce L2

Good to hear that this classic light still attracts new fans and even impresses an owner of a D4 Smile
