They take 18650 cells and the longer ones fit more of them.

A similar looking light is sold on Amazon. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07TLVK7MZ?pf_rd_r=41ZERZ4ETYGHA8RDPT04...

The reviews seem ok but I can’t tell if the cells are replaceable. Seems the back part is aluminum so it should shed heat decently.

I bought one of the 22cm ones with 36 led’s, also ordered a pack of 4000k 2835 leds. Planning on swapping out all of the leds the driver for something anduril based.

Thanks Agro.

I like this one! Are there any models with harder shell (aluminum, steel etc?).

9V battery(6F22) is very common battery that can be bought in almost every type of store and people(especially older generations) would probably like to have this one in a house or for emergency situations.

I would be very interested to see what type of driver this light could have?

It’s a knockoff of the Pak Lite, which has been around for 20+ years. It’s expensive but indestructible, with a 10 year warranty.

More Photons!

New UV light with dual green buttons. Design is not perfect but at least it is quite original.

Coming from Maxtoch is probably a well built (like a bomb) light!
They have some interesting models (most of them on the throwy side), so this may be one of those too!
Biggest problem with their lights (as with some Amutorch/Shadow lights) is the UI (normally with memory, without ML levels, and with longer press for OFF).
Despite this, their lights seem pretty reliable!

I got a few Maxtochs, worked with Amanda in the past. Their anodizing is 2nd to none. They specialized in hunting and searchlights - mil and services.

This one is more SP36 size with the 3 cells, not 4.

Bomb F1... Perfect for a grenade pouch, as I've used for Q8's!

14500 OR AA zoomie on sale for 19.95 (discount after you add to cart). No idea if it’s any good.

118mm length


118×39mm
XHP70
Large Brass switch

Expensive, but I thought it looked kinda slick. Same length as TC20 with a thinner head diameter.

The xhp90 is not from cree, it’s a smaller unknown company that makes a 4 die led on a 9mm x 9mm base. I hear they can’t take much amperage. Maybe 5 to 8 amp.

What about these:

What is a P90? And what is a XHP90? 


The first one above can do 3500 meters, not bad for a $43, 32 mm head diameter light! winksurprisedsmile


Nice find!

That 1st one is similar to the one I posted, interesting too with the added display screen feature.
It appears to have the exact same UI with hidden Turbo/Strobe/SOS.

It’s also listed on aliexperess…
