Would be nice to get some update on this light before Pulsar closes his GB for M6…
Any thoughts on parasitic drain?

P.S. SolarStorm warrior II @ WB is now 53.03$ WTF Flat Stare

Mine arrived today. Freakin sweet!  Puts out between 2150 & 2200 OTF.  Hotspot is super sharp compared to the King and it feels much smaller than the King. Threads are clean, deep,smooth as butter, and fully anodized so you can lock Iit out for zerp parasitic drain. Just 5-10 degrees locks it out. The buttons are smaller than you think so good luck finding replacements if you dont like them. I like it better than the SRK stock.  The ramping feature lets you choose any output level for your custom mode. Long press turns it on and off so you don't have to cycle through the modes to turn it off. Maching is clean and crisp. The ano is even and consistent. The reflectors are clean and smooth. A real bargain for $35!  I almost forgot to mention the AR coated lens. Wink

Does it remember custom set level after lock out?

Yes it does. It also warms up super quick so there is excellent heat sinking for the LEDs.

For only $35 you get a 2000+ lumens light, that’s great JohnnyMac!

So how is the PWM of the lower modes?

Sounds like a much better option than underperforming Skyray Kungfooey too. BrotherHuang still hasn’t sent the light replacement he was supposed to and gave me a “tracking number” that shows me the time in China daily only…like thats supposed to show he sent a package or where it is…

I will let you know how the PWM is when I finish my cigar and go inside.

C'mon Johnny, you are supposed to say that it's horrible and worth nowhere near the $35.  Ugh, another item added to my FT cart.

LOL.  Nah...I'm nearly done with it. I'd also like to add that from high you can skip back to your preset and bypass the blinky with two quick clicks.

See any signs of Fandyfire's beloved red Loctite, or can you actually take it apart without an angle grinder and a oxy acetylene torch?

Sorry for the delay on the PWM report. It does have the usual SRK/Terminator PWM. I took the new dog for a walk with it and the only time PWM bothered me was whe I shined the light at the ground 3ft - 4ft or less in front of me and looked at the ground there while walking. Out further than that it wasn't an issue.

The tint is CW but not purple or blue. It looks good. Smile

Very cool. Thanks for the first impressions!

I wonder what the chances are of doing a FT groupbuy of this same light but in neutral white?

I can always check with Jasmine and see if FT can work something out with us.  Wink

I would definitely be interested in a neutral XM-L2 version of this for about the same price!

You must have a long cigar JohnnyMac. :bigsmile:

Does the SP03 is much bigger than the YL-U2 in size comparison?

Yes indeed. I took comparison pics with the SRK but will try to get some with the SP03 tonight.

I have already asked, but i was in the first stages; they said it´s ok, i must provide an approximate quantity for the wholesale price. I didn’t tell them they should send each item to the buyer, an so on.
I can ask for full details, or wait if JM asks jasmine, but another group buy should be nice Smile (In fact, i think we should start a group buy every week)

Mooooooo
