I think that the USA warehouse idea is pretty cool. That is one thing nice about TMart, stuff gets to San Diego in about 3 or 4 days. I'll have to order something and see how long it takes...

 

OK, nevermind. Every item I tried to click on I got a "This page is not available" warning.

 

Now I found some stuff that it lets you order... THey have a Trustfire Z1 cheaper than what I paid for mine, might have to get another.

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

I'm thinking about buying this light tonight but I don't see much on a Google search. Saw a couple of YouTube vids and one question on CPF but no real reviews. Anyone know anything about this light? I'd really like to try the new DX USA warehouse and this light caught my attention...

I've got lots of bright ideas.

I've got the 502b version that Agenthex referred to.  It has a larger hotspot than my solarforce XML dropin, but is visibly less bright (the SF is smooth, this is orange-peel).

I did get a bad switch in mine that would not take a fully charged battery though.  I had to run them all down slightly for it to work reliably until I replaced the switch on the unit.  Other than that, no real flaws.  clean anodization, no chips... won't tailstand though, and came with dirty, unlubed threads.

Overall, I'm happy with it.

I went ahead and ordered the light I linked to above last night. As of right now it does not show they shipped it yet. I'm crossing my fingers that this one gets here next week. I ordered another light from the regular DX that supposedly shipped on July 25th but I still don't have it.

I've got lots of bright ideas.

devman, does your 502b have a separator (ie wall w/ a metal button) between the battery compartment and the drop-in compartment, or is it straight-through (like most p60 hosts)?

It's the straight through one.  I didn't get a separator with it (actually, I've never seen one)
