Ultrafire LZZ-06 AAA light with pocket clip 0.9-4.2v

Definitely like the looks of it!! Nice light for giveaways?

I'm actually not sure if is new, but can't remember seeing it before.

Yep, I saw that it was added recently, but they sometimes add older lights as well. Just like the olight s80..

So I'm not sure if I have missed that light altogether or if it really was just recently released..

It’s a good question…
I have no Crelant, I can not really comment.

Removable Ultrafire sticker? It might be a nice light for modding.

i think they look good!
i’m not sure, but i think i’ve seen them somewhere else as well, a little bit cheaper?
wouldn’t mind reading a review of one, to see if it’s worth the money asked for it…
(i already have some aaa-lights, so i don’t really need/“need” another one…)

I thought they were nice too, I ordered the purple one on the day of first appearance (the black one was not listed yet), and two weeks later I received a mail from dx that it was on backorder. It was the same day that the blsck one appeared on the dx site, so I changed the order to the black one. And yesterday I got the mail that it was on backorder. So dx lists lights that they do not have. Well, I will just wait for it to come now.

This is not my common experience with dx though, I have bought many new listed lights from them that I received fast.

How bright is it in comparison to a Sipik SK68 and does the brightness change from Li-Ion to normal AAA?

Works on AAA alkaline: high, almost high, strobe. Output is less than ITP A3 (xpg R5) but throw is better (because of bit wider and smooth reflector and of xpe).

Also works fine on EfestIMR: high, high, high with faint strobe Undecided, nice fat output with really good spot.

Bezel is SS Cool . Reflector is aluminium, under the reflector is a insulating/centering piece of plastic that does the job well, no pill, led board sits on a black anodised shelf that is part of the body, driver needs a tiny solder blob in the middle of the battery+ pad to fit the flat top Efest battery. The o-ring that seales the head from the body needs to be thinner, even if lubed well the head twists too stiff for comfort. The spring at the bottom of the tube is stiff and short (good for conductance) and can be reached because the tail cap can be screwed off for some reason.

It works well enough stock, and also I think it is a nice host: everything is servicable and I see no major desgin flaws.

A few days ago, I did a mod with the Ultrafire LZZ-06, in the post are also a few more pictures of the light (driver, pill).

Just placed an order for one of these, looks like it’ll make a handy little addition to my laptop case Smile

Just received mine, and it has at least 3 modes.

High , Low (actually medium) and strobe.

Switching between modes is not so easy, as it stays in the same mode often..

Need to figure out if more lube will help, or maybe less..

Edit1: Oh..I just reread Jozz s post, saying that the oring is a little too thick.

Not bad for under $8

Edit2: I just cut the spring a little and it helped somewhat. Probably a different oring would improve it even more.

Just received mine. I can only find two modes – high and strobe, but it’s impressively compact and very bright on an UltraFire 10440 (blue).

Gets hot quick though!

If you look carefully, there is an 'almost high' as well, between high and strobeLaughing

(just started modding my second one Smile )

Got one too.
I wouldn’t use 10440 though, as it (like mentioned) gets hot, which is not light but heat.. Wink

It’s always a surprise which mode you’ll get…
Mostly it starts on high though.

The screwable tailcap has no reason to be screwable…
strange..

It's light if it gets hot enough. You never heard of incandescent flashlights? Laughing

Decided I needed one of these until the Walbuy's coupon didn't work and I noticed they now charge for shipping.

You can get one from AliExpress for $5 in different colors.


And you will probably have better luck than buying from WB. I haven’t received mine yet, as the logistics company the seller have used messed up the shipping. I got a refund though and he resent me the light anyway as a compensation for inconvenience.

Nice find.  Thank you Pregulla Smile

EDIT: Gonna take my chances.  Aliexpress has covered me in a past non-delivery.  Ordered a set of 3 black.

I haven't seen a driver diameter here or in djozz's mod thread.  Anyone know of a good replacement driver for Ni-MH usage?

 

EDIT2: Anyone know if this driver will fit?

I did a second mod on the LZZ-06 (http://budgetlightforum.com/node/29825), the driver size is mentioned there. It is 13mm, so the nanjg 102 should fit Smile .

Excellent.  Thank you djozz. 

P.S. Can't believe I forgot about that second mod.  It's so cool.

Thank you Pregulla for the info in Post 25 above.  The vendor came through with flying colors.  I just received 3 black Jexree Mini's today.  Ordered on August 7th.  They were beyond super well packed.  I can only describe them as crazy well packed.  I think they could have been dropped from a plane and landed on a solid rock with no damage.  I kind of felt bad throwing away all the bubble wrap and 2 boxes they were packed in.  All 3 were in perfect condition and work great.

They look the same as the light in the OP except no sticker and a smooth refector.  They have very good output stock.  At about 2 feet (guessing) they read 1,600 and 550 lux (Direct beam to meter) on high and low, respectively.  A TruNite TiS measured 1,200 lux at the same distance.

Compared to a TiS:

  • Tubes are the same diameter.  The Jexree's head is about 1mm wider, but the reflector is close to 2mm wider.  Jexree is slightly shorter.
  • Beam of the TiS is smoother.  Jexree has a smaller more concentrated hot spot.  Jexree has slight artifacts on a wall, but they are not too bad.
  • Jexree includes a very nice clip.  Doesn't come off or even move when extended out.  Holds its place  and doesn't rotate unless you purposely push it directly from the side with the intention to rotate.
  • Jexree tail stands slightly better.  A slight wobble will topple the TiS, but the Jexree will recover and remain standing.
  • Tint is almost the same.  Jexree is slightly cooler.  Nice white with no apparent tint.
  • TiS' knurling is far superior.  Jexree's is not grabby.  The clip, head and two body groves make up for it though.
  • Guessing the Anodized finish on the TiS is superior, but I don't want to test.  The Jexree's finish feels pretty decent though.  Seems like it will hold up well.
  • The Jexree is a little wonky with mode changes.  Luckily it starts in high mode.  Generally, changes modes in the following order: High, Low, Strobe.  Sometimes it changes modes in different order or keeps returning to high.  Looking at the driver on the light I have, it appears to not be well seated.  I need to pull it and reseat it flat in it's bay.  I think that will fix the issue.

 I just ordered nine more in various colors for gifts.

EDIT: Reworded the last bullet after noticing that my driver was loose and did not fit in its bay.  I attempted to force it in place, but it got stuck at an angle.  Was at work and had not files to get it properly sized and seated flat.

The driver looks pretty decent.  It's PCB is red and appears to be labeled "LG68".  Has 3 good sized capacitors.  Inductor labeled "3R3".   Mode chip labeled "ECA1R".   Diode labeled "S6 82".  Has 2 stacked resistors.  Top one is labeled R300.  Quality of construction looks pretty good.  Has a copper ground ring (Not just a trace).

My Google-fu is weak today.

EDIT: The driver appears to be far more sophisticated than this driver.  I'll try to post a picture tonight.
