I’m still considering this light, but would’t use it without a clip and I don’t see a clip offered as an accessory.

Which of the two stock LEDs is more neutral or warm?

Thanks.

Also considering that ChengInn 18650 light, but it also doesn’t come with a clip.

What light are you mentioning? The OTR i3 or the other OTR from Fasttech I linked?
It it is the i3, it has a pocket clip. If you decide to purchase it on AliExpress, send the seller a message.
If the other OTR, I don’t think it has a clip at all

Same question, is it about the OTR i3?
If so, the options for it are XML2 U3-1A / XML2 U3-5C / XP-G2 R5-1A being the U3-5C warmer than the U3-1A (cold white). My option was the U3-3C and it was more Neutral.

Nop, this one doesn’t seem to have one. Maybe a Convoy clip can be attached to it (not the screw-in clips, though).

I was referring to the I3 for the clip and emitter options.

I don’t see any optional accessories listed for the I3 on the aliexpress website, so I guess I would have to message the seller to find what the options are.

I would also have to buy a battery, so I’d also message the seller for battery suggestions.

I would likely chose the warm white option, if I buy one. I’m tired of cool white zoomies.

Thanks for all of your information and suggestions.

Ahh, ok ok Smile
Well, I guess that if you send a message to the seller, even if it costs you some more bucks, he will include the cell and the clip. You can mention that you are from BLF and that you’ve seen this review as well Wink
The OTR 16340s are good cells. If you don’t change the driver for a FET or “more powerful” one, that cell or a Sofirn 900mAh cell will be enough. Still, you have the recently launched Vapcell 16340 800mAh 7A cells that will give you probably the best option for the light. This will also be the best option in case you use a FET or “more powerful” driver

About the tint, if you chose the 5C I guess you won’t be disappointed. Next steps I will do in mine is to put a Luxeon V 4000K to make it warmer. And the other step is to replace the burnt driver Facepalm (don’t ask, don’t tell!!) Silly

In any case, ask the seller for that before making the order Wink
Hope this helps!!

I think it is still available Wink
And I think they will not be able to do something less thicker than this. I just sent message to the OTR contact and will be looking for his reply Wink

Or this?

Hey MascaratumB!

Nice find mate! BTW the one that is aliexpress linked does it has glass lenses on? They did not stated which lens do they use and since head has “short walk” they are probably acrylic lenses. But one problem it has 44$ of shipping cost!!! I mean WTF Facepalm Probably some mistake from seller?

Anyway that Ali light would be ultra find if it has glass lens because it is budget 10$ light Thumbs Up

BTW that 18650 OTR Fasttech ligth you linked has a bit dear price…, and I am not sure what to think on that glass lens retaining ring…
Can you talk them into price cool down? Smile

Free shipping to Poland.

luminarium iaculator, I suggest that you ask them whether it’s a mistake or not.

I believe this one uses acrylic lens, not glass!

If you are talking about the ChengInn, that must be a mistake, as I only would have to pay less then 10€ for the flashlight.

Indeed, but I’m not sure about the lens and the pill quality, which are the only things keeping me from buying it as I would like to mod it and still get a nice beam.

About the retaining ring, are you talking abou the external ring? I see nothing wrong with it except that it may get trickier to take it out, eventually, without some grooves. But I see no problem with it! Below the lens there is a reflecting “gasket” (sorry as this is not the correct term) as on the i3!

About the price, sorry, but I don’t contact Fasttech! If you find any coupons maybe it get a bit lower. But I wouldn’t count too much on that…

That OTR 18650 would be better deal that is sure… Probably 35$ is for whole set (light, battery, charger). I think they could lower it something below 20$

PM sent.

The OTR i3 itself is more expensive than that.
Also, the OTR Z821 (18650) from FT is a complete kit. I believe that just the flashlight with no extras (meaning: no battery, no charger) would still cost about 25€.
OTR lights are not that cheap in all the places you buy them. Even with coupons, they don’t get much lower than 20€.

If OTR Z821 meets mine criteria I will try “ 100pcs lot order” and they gotta lower price…

That why I hope OTR is serious flashlight company and not just OEM and ODM reseller.

Modded my i3 some days ago Wink
Put a screw-in clip and it works just fine!

Currently it has a 15mm driver with Crescendo + reverse clicky switch + a XPL-HD CW Led on a 16mm Copper DTP MCPCB!

The modded light looks good MascaratumB. Thanks for sharing.

I’ll likely buy one of these lights, some day.

Thank you Wink
If you like small zoomable lights, this is the way to go! Easy to mod, you’ll just need to be careful and use a single sided driver!
Other than that, put a good Led on it and do the same I did with the pocket clip and call it a day Wink
