You are correct, I had forgot the XHP35 HI is a 12v led. I was thinking it was 6v.

Thank you for clearing that up “ hIKARInoob “ , I was confused again as usual. Beer

Cheers man! And don’t worry, I’m confused all the time. Big SmileBeer

I do have another Question while we are on the subject, if you don’t mind me asking.

If a light comes with a 2S2P and 4 batteries for a XHP35 HI led, can you add 4 more batteries 2S4P ? Keeping the total voltage the same while increasing capacity without damaging the driver ?

Yes you can.

But you would have to make a longer battery tube.

If you do make a battery tube, perhaps you could sell it in a group buy.

An example is the Manker MK35 (2S2P XHP35). With 2S4P voltage remains the same, so the driver sees no difference besides a bit less voltage sag with 8 cells. But this occurs within the working voltage range, so no problem here.

Sweet Thumbs Up

You guys are Great. I will make the battery tubes for two other lights ( MT07 and MT35 PLUS ) that need this. But the MT07S will stay because I need it smaller for every day carry use. I do Appreciate your enlightenment, I’m still learning.. Beer

I have ransacked my box inside out, and it is definitely not in there. Silly

I have taken a photo of the inside of the box when sending the email/message to BG support, as I am sure they are likely to ask for a photo.

Mine is the XHP35 HI version.

Guys It has been more than a week since I reported my "missing metal belt/claw" issue to BG on 04/06. Since the last email from them on 05/06, asking me to wait, two further emails sent to them over the last few days are being met with silence. I also sent a message to the BG rep here a couple of days ago, but he/she hasn't responded to my message either.

Can I please ask those of you who ordered this flashlight on this GB to indicate which flashlight you bought, and if you received the "metal belt claw" (see photo below) in your package. It will help those of us who did not receive one when taking this up with BG. Thanks!

Oh that’s just great! Facepalm
I have ordered mine on May 21, 2018 right after stocks were depleted. At this time the status was “pre-order” and until yesterday, shipping was expected for June 12, 2018, i.e. today. Today I checked once again and guess what… I have a new button called “apply refund”. The MT07S is now indicated back to “arrival note” and “coming soon” whatever this is supposed to mean.

I have a real bad suspicion that this situation is somehow in conjunction with Haikelite’s financial situation and Terry’s cryptical words about Haikelite not paying their bills…

“[…]Forgot one thing…. Good luck with believing Haikelite… and good luck getting them to send you anything. I do not care what the openly claimed. Ac fording to 5 different emails from Dale himself. BangGood and GearBest owe them over 40k each. I will happily forward that to anyone that wants to see it. […]

“[…]Think about it…. why do you not see any of these new models for sale on Chinese websites… THE DO NOT PAY THEIR BILLS…. not me… […]”

Source: http://budgetlightforum.com/comment/1330641#comment-1330641

I don’t know what I should believe right now, especially about Terry’s last words before he became banned here. Of course, we need to be very careful about truth and lies concerning the dispute between Haikelite and Terry White. But there’re always two sides of a story, right? Anyway, I have a bad feeling about the MT07S ever coming back on stock again.

I too am getting a little concerned. I see the “Apply Refund” link now too on my order, but as usual, you can’t actually use it. When you try to submit it you get a cryptic message “Can’t refund”. I’ve NEVER been able to submit a refund request using that stupid link. I don’t know why it’s even there, it’s completely useless. Guess I’ll start emailing BG customer service. That should go smoothly… NOT!

Unless Martin can offer some info on whether we might ever actually get our lights… I’d love to get it, but I can’t wait indefinitely. It’s already been 3 weeks.

Brilliant idea CNCman !!

 

i would definitely buy custom machined extended tubes for these lights, and the size/thread compatible MT09R 70.2 TA Monster Triple, which could REALLY benefit from some dramatic capacity improvement options and much better weight distribution from a longer tube, even if still using 4 cells...

 

like the Otherwise excellent BLF Q8, I find the centered mass of the ubiquitous quad 18650 cell arrangement a bit much for real world use in a relatively short body length. In the Q8, which is a KISS 4P configuration, sometimes  I run only 2cells at a time to avoid wrist fatigue to reduce weight. Sometimes I wish for the modularity genius of the BLF GT to be able to run either 4 or 8 cells with its extension tube, the added weight giving a huge usability runtime improvement.

 

I suppose I would prefer an extension tube for more comfortable weight distribution, with 4 or 8 cell options. I know with your machining background there’s a way to design this, and I would gladly make it worth your while, even just some simple prototype work.

 

please PM me for details, as I am very interested in the possibilities, 

 

Thanks !!

(Sigh)

 

Really sorry to hear about your situation, FlashTom and CoolJB.

 

I ordered a white NW XHP35 MT07S on 5/24, and received it on 6/7, paying a few bucks for the Expedited shipping option, and it had the exotic braided paracord both pictured on the BG site and as above. I am very happy with the light, but I cringe at the negative experiences others are having with problems ordering and the whole SC26 fiasco... I can only hope these get resolved somehow, but now I’m leery of HL/BG for the future. 

 

I still I’ll stand by the otherwise very good quality of build quality and performance of the 2 HL I do have, yet these negatives affecting others is not a good omen.

I just checked the stock situation on all versions of the MT07S. They are all OOS and on „arrival notice“ right now without any predictable date for stock replenishment.

Damn I waited to long to jump on this deal. I didn’t think haikelight would go belly up they seemed to do well. Really wanted a xho35 one. I have a 70.2 one. Might buy a second 70.2 if I can find one. I’d like to MOD one with the ta driver and keep one stock

Blf has changed a lot since I've been here. Lots of snow flakes and easily offended over nothing. When the forum use to be great and people joked around and could take a joke. It's a forum it's not that serious. Let's make BLF great again!

I do not doubt you will get your lights.

It’s the same thing which happened with the BLF Q8 during the Christmas shopping season: there were over 6000 preorders, and every time, the preorder date got pushed.

It’s probably the same thing which is happening with the MT07S: it racks up a lot of preorders, and boom! preorder date gets pushed.

Thanks. I placed my order on 5/22, 2 days before you, and still missed out. I didn’t pay for expedited shipping. Is that the reason I missed out? Sad

The plot thickens – NW version shows “In Stock” now and you can buy it instead of preordering… Still no shipment confirmation for me though.

24 hours processing

Seems like no problem there. Banggood ALWAYS shipped items within 24 hours when that sign was up.

Today I received my MT07S XHP70.2 NW. So far, everything looks fine except for two imperfections in the reflector, see picture below. I hope these will not have any negative influence on the beam. Is this normal in terms of manufacturing tolerances or a reason one could seriously complain about?

Normal. As long as it does not manifest itself in the beam, it is okay.

Just ordered a black nw xhp 35 thanks for this deal. I was pretty bummed out about it, it was looking haikelite was in trouble. Glad to see there making new product. I checked yesterday and it said in stock 24 hours processing time. Wife got it for me for my birthday today.
Using mad Maxs aff link of course. This will put those new vtc5s to good use.

Every once in awhile a light will come with a minor imperfection in the reflector or finish. Just part of mass production. I see it with the convoy host every 1 in 10 host has a blemish like that on the reflector I’ve never seen it make a difference in the beam

I tried out my MT07S and found out that mine has some quality issues:

  • The reflector has two minor imperfections, not really a problem but ugly somehow

  • The dome of my XHP70.2 has a scratch on it

  • The side switch blinks blue even with almost fully charged (4.09V) protected Imalent 18650 cells. According to the manual it should not start to blink before the capacity is down to 50 percent.

  • This is a common problem I’ve discovered. You can “reset” this fault by physically removing the battery tube from the head (not just loosening 90 degrees) for a second or so, and tightening again. The light will turn solid blue again. However, after fondling with output the battery indicator will start blinking again as if battery voltage is below something like 3.7V (~50% capacity).
    You can see this problem in this video here as well:

    - batteries inserted at 6 min. 45 sec.
    - switch on at 7 min. 16 sec. ==> solid blue light
    - mode switching at 7 min.43 sec., and at the 8 minute mark he finishes cycling modes and the button isn’t solid blue anymore.

    Exact same issue with the SC26 (original version) in this video:

    I’ve done two driver swaps for the MT07S, and the problem is still present unfortunately.
