Anyone buy and receive a FandyFire STL-V6 from Wallbuys?

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone else here has bought and received a FandyFire STL-V6 from Wallbuys recently, especially from their Instant Kill sales?

If so, please let me know?

I have a thread where I’ve described the problems that I’ve had with the one that I bought from their Instant Kill a couple of weeks ago:

http://budgetlightforum.com/node/22060

So far, RaceR86 has indicated that he got his from Wallbuys recently, and I’m assuming that was from an Instant Kill, but I’m wondering if anyone else got one from them, either from an Instant Kill or otherwise, and:

- Does it have mode groups (does tightening the flashlight head make the light have 3 modes)?
- How is the light performance (esp. lux measurement, if possible)?

Thanks,
Jim

Edit: It appears that they’ve updated/modified their web page, just recently, and have eliminated info about the 2 mode groups. It was there previously :(…

I received a FandyFire STL-V6 from Wallbuys Instant Kill they had on 17 May for 18.88.

It does not have 2-mode group that was advertised, just 5 mode.
Measured 1.4 Amps at the tail with new Panasonic NCR18650A batteries.
Light performance is decent but less output compared to a modified Small Sun ZY-T13 with a XM-L U2 at 3.1 Amps

I was alittle disappointed at first but I think I can live with it as is for now. I will swap out the emitter and maybe change the driver in the future.

I’m sorry to hear that, but thanks for posting this info!

I would suggest returning it back for replacement!
