One of the reasons I haven’t purchased anything since my Wizard Pro… Awesome headlamp by the way. Almost perfect. Just wish I would accept primary cells as a backup source.

Same here. I’m waiting for a better shipping price before placing my order. Anyone know how often items are shipped from the US warehouses and therefore the shipping price is $10?

I believe it used to be able run on CR123A cells, but no longer advertises that feature. I suspect that is due to the addition of onboard charging, to prevent users from attempting to charge primary batteries. I would not be at all surprised if the light actually runs fine on them, but I don’t know if anyone has tested it, which could risk damaging the light. If it does work without harm, you would certainly want to be careful not to habitually attach the charger.

Hello!

Is it a new blackout light?
Edit: if you don’t know what a military blackout light is then you’re probably not going to get the joke.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackout_light They are made for slow movement, about the speed of a bicycle. If you’ve ever driven in a military convoy with black out lights with a guy peeing off the back of the Jeep…nope if you have to explain it it’s not going to be funny.

PLEASE BECAREFUL OF ARMYTEK

I’ve been one of their biggest fans in the past and often posted about them. I bought about 40 Armytek lights mostly used for testing purposes. Recently I ordered the Barracuda Pro from them and they shipped me the Barracuda Non-Pro. Because they looked identical, I didn’t know I had the regular. I ran the test and found the output to be far below spec so I emailed them to report the defect hoping for an RMA.

I was speaking with Olivia Brown. In the beginning when they knew I bought so many of their lights, she said, You’re our VIP-client and I’m your personal manager! Once I reported problems, I get no replies from this “personal manager”. They ignored me for over 2 months after repeated emails. Then I mentioned I just found out the one Armytek sent me is the regular and not the Pro version and she finally answered and said I have the light for over 2 months so they’re not going to send me the Pro version I ordered.

WTF, Armytek. This is how you treat one of your best customers? I’m never going to buy another Armytek light and I warn anyone who intends to buy their light, if you have problems, ARMYTEK WILL IGNORE YOU.

Send this to the Armytek rep on here. If enough of us make a stink about it, they should do something. That really sucks.

Thanks. I’m not even mad because of being cheated one light but I’m pissed at the principle. After being a loyal fan supporting them, this is how they treat me back. If they can do that to me, they will definitely do that to their non “VIP-clients”.

So many things can get in the way of a transaction…absences, language barriers…I doubt it’s malice, just mismanagement. That’s what life has taught me. And there are two sides to every story. But damn, I feel for you. That tremendously sucks.

And speculate with their prices… Wizard Pro price in Poland was recently changed from 60$ to 90$ because why not.

This is not good. Just for the heck of it I looked at their website and the store website and they show that pro in Warm White as out of stock on both places. I wonder if it’s possible that’s related to the response. If you paid up for the pro then their response is totally unacceptable.

Yea I’m guessing they didn’t have stock of the Pro WW so they just decided to send me the Regular WW and hope I wouldn’t notice, which I didn’t originally because they look identical. Luckily someone in this thread told me the Pro has two turbo modes but mine had one so that’s how I realized Armytek sent me the Regular instead of the Pro. I can’t believe they’re not willing to fix this for me.

Yes, you can choose Turbo 1 or Turbo 2 at Pro Version only. But you can identify the pro Version very easily. Pro has XHP35 Hi instead of XP-L Hi LED, and you can use it with one or two 18650 because the battery tube has two parts only at pro Version. Last but not least they add a small “pro” at the head…
