Hmmmm, thanks. I was thinking he had said just a few post back he “should do one”???
I’ll check it out, cause I always love his reviews. Thanks again…… Thumbs Up

Edit: Never mind that was a comment about doing a “mod thread” in post # 180. I just misread it.

It's a little ironic they give a light to a modder to review. What do they expect? smile

They got a good review that helped me decide to obtain this Manker; I have been pleased with it too. Smile

Yea, I really do like it as well. It just feels like quality, and it's small, compact, and can be made quite powerful. I was really intrigued by the U11 too, and got one couple weeks ago at a great price and am really impressed with it.  It's another light that feels great in your hand, has a very similar style of the U21, plus has the portability to carry with you all the time. I always liked compact 18650 lights that can easily be EDC'ed, but also has some throw - the U11 is that light. So mine survived bout 2 weeks before I had to find out how moddable it really is.

Unfortunately, those batteries have been “nerfed” , so typicaly for China producers…not that bad actualy yet nerfed
The capacity now is arround 5000mah( 5400-5500) before yet the int resistance rised and ofc max amp values dropped by 200-300ma
Even so its equal to Efest 4200 Pirple, yet noone can guarantee us future nerfs

It has also a new code…..At least those coming from GB

Boy, that's some bad news... But never heard the expression "nerfed" before. I really was thinking the LK's were an upgrade to the "Powerizer" 26650 cell that for dropped by the seller couple years ago - best performing 26650 cell at the time. Me and Dale might have been the only ones into them, or least reporting on them. The labeling looks very much the same between the two, so might have been the same source.

Wonder if these from RIC are still the old style: http://cnqualitygoods.com/goods.php?id=2250

 

I use these LK's in pretty much all my single 26650 lights, and then some - tons of lights.

By that time i used to play that game with a Paladin, a shitty character but impossible to kill too, rofl

“Nerfed”, LoL! Remembers me of my much earlier times of playing dumba$$ online “role” playing games.

Those units seem good on the pictures Tom E but, how do we know what batch of cells they're stocking?

Potentially alternative source of “unnerffed” units: Authentic Soshine NCR26650 3.6V 5000mAh Rechargeable Li-ion Batteries

I have had good results from Soshine 500mAh batteries I bought last year; they are protected and well under 70mm for use in series.

These cells are good, but they are bigger than specification which can be a problem.

Received one 26650 Liitokala from gearbest. Put it through the Lii-500 capacity test and after 19 hours it shows 5266mAh but at 3,55v...

I don't understand, is it safe to use? Also it doesn't fit in to my Shadow JM35.

Update!

Test/Review of LiitoKala INR 26650 5000mAh cells. from our beloved CPF fellows

 

Even considering cell “C” came from a different manufacturer (PLB vs Hengji Battery), the cells are well matched.

If you can fit a tad above 130mm of battery lenght on a 2D tube, I don't see why not.

Remember to install a 2S battery management board if under-discharge protection is required.

Old good kind is back , the last 2 orders that i got came to be from the good old ones

I`ve tested them agains the newest Efest purple model and Li 26650 performed better with our fet dd drivers

Yet, they dont perform great with buck drivers, for instance Efest 5200 or Soshine 5500 works better with them
