I though you followed us here to correct our grammar and spelling lol.

ThorFire had the VG10s on here for like $10 but it was an exclusive deal for BLF members you had to PM Thorfire on here.

$15.99 is still heaps cheap its a great light.

They have a 20w Cree light coming up on special buys at Aldi next Saturday, i am trying to work out what LED will be inside considering Cree make no 3v 20w LEDs unless its using a boost driver?. 1500 lumens for $30 with an inbuilt battery isn’t bad. (Besides the 3v XHP50.2)
The two modes is average but it can be used as a phone charger.

Pre spooled with mono line. Big Smile
4000mAh battery. Not if its an 18650.
I’d say the specs are Chinese.

Just noticed the pre spooled with mono line lol. Some one will get sent to chamber for this! Hahaha

I was thinking its probably got a 26650 or two 18650s. I have seen a few lights from Aldi using XML2 and XPG2s never bought one i always wait till they are clearance and i miss out.

“Cree T6 LED technology, 90000 lumens! Only $9.95!”

;p

I’m guessing 2× 18650; only needs 2.5-3A or so then, should be easy enough with something 6V. Not a bad price.

Haha, it’s the LH351D 5000K 90CRI. The model number looks a bit like “dogfarts”; SPHWHTL3DA0GF4RTS6. It’s got the same die size, so it’d drop right in for a nicer beam.

Also saw that Aldi torch tonight: XHP50 and a strangely looooong battery. Assuming it’s two 18650s in series wrapped up. So ~3.3A, nice.

Omg it really does look like dogfarts!!! Isn’t that LED super hard to get a hold of? Be awesome in the Emisar lights, great tint and CRI.

Nah, I bought some from that site and they shipped from the US, took 3 days or so? Maybe 4. I’m tempted to buy 25 or so; I’m putting a Lexel driver and aux board in an MF01 and will probably swap the Nichias out with dogfarts Smile

But yeah, I’ve been tempted to get a D4s lately, and put some in it, and also get a third FW3A when released to have one in all three options Wink
