yeah typically the fakes have different tailcaps etc on them and are pretty easy to spot..this guy sells a ton of other solarforce stuff that i've never seen faked..the new tailcaps with stainless steel especially..I think his merchandise is legit but i'll know in 2-4 weeks if it's fake cus mines already been posted..if I had any doubts I wouldn't have ordered one..

http://kaidomain.com/ProductDetails.aspx?ProductId=11189 is a fake..solarforce never has a flat ss bezel of a tailstanding cap on their l2m unless it's a special promo off the direct website..you can look at the l2m I posted it's as genuine and on par to solarforce-sales site..

OK, so thats pretty interesting. 

What dropins and reflectors I can fit in?

Can i put drop in and reflector from Ultrafire 501b? 

 

yes it takes a p60 module..so any drop-in from ultrafire or solarforce etc will fit in..this light allows an 18650 or a 16340 (or 18350) to save space..an xm-l module will not be powered to full though on the smaller configuration..I haver a nice 3 mode xpg running at 1.7a that I will use in shorty mode..

Wow, this head http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140612586133 would be nice to have with an XML Smile

yeah it would..the x9 head would be pretty close to the size..if you want a thrower get a trustfire x9 and put a 2.8a driver in it..it's like a lazer beam..x9 head is 60mm this is 72mm so 12mm difference..

I have X9 and Skyray STL-V2 1Xt6

2,8 driver is incoming, without driver is X9 nothing special. But X9 has smaller reflector than STL-V2 (that Skyray has 59mm lens diammeter, X9 3-5mm smaller diammete).

But that solarforce (I have read it only know, but it seemed to me like that before) has 7cm wide had, so i would be better thrower than all of these lights.

So, SOLARFORCE L1200 > SkRay STL-V2 > Trustfire X9

Trustfire X9 would be significntly weaker thrower because of 1,5cm less wide reflctor and thats huge difference in flashlights.  

 

yeah I guess..I don't know how much better the xm-l can throw though over the x9..i'd have to see it to believe it..even if you look at the 980l reflector difference between the x9 it's a huge difference, but the x9 only throws slightly better..I don't think you would see a difference between a 59mm head and 72mm head..love to be proven wrong with a beamshot though..

Yeah, these are only my theoretical conclusions because I dont have proprerly driven X9 yet.  

But X9 and STL-V2 have similar reflectors, and this one is whole centimeter wider. SO I still think that would throw much further. I think 7 cm reflector would be perfect for XML 

 

980L. Im not acquainted with that light, but now I've searched it. http://www.qualitychinagoods.com/ultrafire-980l-flashlight-charger-32600...

8 cm head diammeter?? Wooow. And it throws only little further than an X9. Wooow again Smile Than Im very hapy with my X) (still waiting proper driver though) .

And I cant wait to compare properly driven X9 with SkyRay STL-V2.  Of course shape of the reflectors matters too. 

no the 980l doesn't out throw the x9..(980l is 4cm head, x9 is 6cm head)..it's very close though for the size difference..the 980l is tiny vs the x9 in terms of head, but the difference in throw is very close..so  for the extra 2 cm you get marginal extra throw..x9 with another 1cm on the head would be even less difference..I think the x9 is at the top of throw for an xml due to it's die size..

Than it must be a matter of reflector shape, it these thing you are talking are true. 

Because C8 has 45mm head. And Im sure (and Ive seen beamhots too, here on the forum), that X9  will outhrow it significantly

my 980l destroys a c8 is terms of throw..x9 would also..shape of reflector is definitely a factor..so width is not the only variable..
