5 minutes mod to my B158.

Changed the led for a XP-L hi 16mm noctigon from intl-outdoor, removed the driver and connected the led directly from the contact plate for direct drive as i only needed max output.

I also removed the Klingon protrusions on the body with a lathe since i don’t intend to mount the B158 to anything, lost 26 grammes in the process and the light is much nicer to hold.

I contacted them also to remove that chunk to 30 mm and to made me 50 pcs of them but I got no response.

I don't find them as serious company any more.

Uniquefire here I come Smile

They are far better company to deal with.

They just don't have that good lenses... Yet Smile

And I really don't get small flashlight manufacturers like Brinyte... Someone wants to order  OEM and ODM of B158 and they don't even response to mail?

Maybe 50 pcs is not a lot but they should consider that as a good start of business, and then maybe we could talk about larger moq.

So yes Brinyte your costumer service and your way of doing business sucks.

These are some great results to get over 300 kcd! So far it's KKW, djozz and l-a reporting on this. My B158 is still not here, bout 4 week from shipped. I'll give it another week or so, but thinking it's lost. It's rare to go over 4 weeks for me here in NY.

Could someone or all who got the de-domed XP-G2's over 300 kcd please post a tailcap amp reading? I don't see one anywhere, unless I missed it somehow. I assume djozz is doing a hot dedome, and l-a is doing a gas dedome, not sure bout KKW - probably hot dedome?

I'm very interested because I've been getting from 3.9A to just over 5A on S2 2B's - it seems to vary greatly, and I thought the S2 2B's did better than the S4 2B's, but maybe the S4 2B's put out the same or more light at lower amps?

I mean, I don’t agree but that’s my opinion. They’ve been very responsive to me, answering all of my questions… Getting the bare pills… Asking me for suggestions. They even sent me an email wishing me merry Christmas. What email address are you contacting?

Which leads me to wonder what any company requires for a custom order? Is 50 enough? They require quantities of 50 to get the price to $22.99. So I wonder what your willing to pay for custom machining work to the lights? My feeling would be that it’s going to be more than $30 per light to get custom work done. Have you contacted other companies about doing this?

I contacted them at customerservice@brinyte.com

Edit: It is not custom machining. I am not asking them to rework me old stock of B158 flashlights. I am asking them for small cosmetic change in new series they would made for me.

They are flashlight manufacturers with cnc machines and everything right? It is even easier and faster to made my version without that nasty and unnecessary chunk  than  their B158 chunk and unnecessary mount version.

I would not need mount/manufacturing process is easier and faster and whole light would be 30 gr. lighter. So price should go down with this process and not up.

So putting old stock lights on a machine to remove or modify them should make the price go down? Alright, I absolutely don’t agree with that but I’ll send you the email of the person I’ve been dealing with there. The email above is CCed on all the emails, but I’ve never received an email from that address. It is possible you’re being sent to a spam filter.

And considering you said they suck without having actually talked to anyone there, well…

I’ll just PM you the contact and hopefully you can get it sorted out. I however don’t expect the price to go down, for any sort of modification to existing stock of their flashlights. That’s like me asking for a custom engraving for free from a company, because they’re actually REMOVING metal.

Mhanlen,

You did not even read my answer... So read up again:

It is not custom machining. I am not asking them to rework me old stock of B158 flashlights. I am asking them for small cosmetic change in new series they would made for me.

Edit: I cant find them as serious company cause they are not answering on my emails. I have sent more than just one mail.

Well agree to disagree. I don’t want to get into an argument. I did read your response and understand it. I gave you the address, so see what they say before declaring they are a bad company. I know my work email often sends items to the spam folder… And considering it is NOT the email I’ve dealt with I can’t say what the situation is.

I am not attacking you man. You are not Brinyte.

But again... Is it a problem for flashlight manufacturer to made small cosmetic change on new specific costumer order? They don't need to rework anything. They just need to made new batch. You saw what I mean... That is far easier to do than existing B158 model with additional unnecessary mount.

So if you or other guys disagree with that? OK Smile I accept... I think this is just right way of doing business.

So if they can't do that or if they demand extra large MOQ they do not have their own machines. Someone else is doing that for them.

Ok fine. Email them first. I have had many many emails not returned from manufacturers. I’m done talking about it, this is between you and Brinyte not you and I.

I highly doubt Brinyte owns their own 4-axis cnc machines. They design the flashlight and sub it out to a machine shop. The machine shop sends it to the annodizer. After that the assembler than to a warehouse. Brinyte recieves them complete, most likely. May not ever touch them, who knows. There is no way they can do what you are asking. You will have to sub the work to a real machine shop local to you.

Have you considered that they just may not be interested in small batch custom work based on their unique design and resold for a higher profit by someone else? I bet the response is different if you contact them and just say you want to buy 50 of what they actually offer, rather than expecting them to jump to sell 50 done “your way.”

See how Nitecore, Fenix, or Maglite respond to the same request. Not all companies are set up, or interested, in changing how they produce the lights.

They’ve been uninterested in offering hosts or cheap bare pills. To me this says they just aren’t planning on making hosts or OEM orders for other people part of their business model.

I feel like maybe the email wasn’t getting to them. I gave him a known good email address, so I say wait before we pass judgement. I know there are often holidays too, that we’re not aware of. So if he still doesn’t get in contact with them after that, maybe then everyone can start getting mad. I have seen the wholesale prices for these lights, and the quantities needed for the price points, so I’m not optimistic that a modification of an existing design will yield a cheaper price than what we got with this group buy. But there’s no harm in asking, right?

To KKW,

"After 3 years developed, Yeguang Technology changed to use “Brinyte” brand, focus on hunting and diving powerful led flashlight, especially OEM and ODM customs service."


You see they are specialized in this. Same like Uniquefire. They will machine and do whatever you need. MOQ could be problem. 50 pcs is small order but smart thinking would be to accept this order cause just 1 worker can make this in less than one day on 1 CNC machine, and if they accept we have a base for future cooperation. I can for example order twice per year next 2-5 years.

With some companies I am dealing with there absolutely  no issues with this service. It is in their best interest to earn some $.

Good info. I’m betting it’s either a high MOQ and 50 doesn’t cut it, or they don’t cannibalize their own designs if you don’t hear something by the end of next week.

On the off chance they might see this thread you could consider deleting “this company sucks” if you actually want to do business with them.

I will if they will respond. But after trying to contact them with same questions with 2 different emails several times during week or two with no response they really deserve that epithet.

Their B158 is really good. I did not said that their flashlight is bad Smile

Edit: They responded on 04.01.2016.

Familiar ? Smile

That light is more different than the B158 than it is the same, the only component that could be considered possibly the same as the B158 is the battery tube. The lens, head, tailcap, and pill are all very different, even if functionality is similar. Are you just guessing they’re made by Brinyte, or do you know for sure that they are?

I do like the idea of the 70mm lens, but the price is outrageous if compared directly to the B158.

KKW,

You did not get the point of this. Point was that same light can be done on different way.

This is ebay link is very popular light redone. But even you did not recognized it. Smile

And you have it at home Smile

Yes it could be redone. It would be simpler to machine a plain tube than with the lobes and tapped holes added but still the same multi thread zoom, seals, and head threads. You might have more success presenting them with numbers for a group buy than saying hey, make this for me and you’ll sell enough to make money.
