Is Eagle Eye still around?

I searched for the Eagle Eye X2R and found it only on banggood. I found the aliexpress product page, but the aliexpress store page is empty.

Is Eagle Eye still around?

Eagle eye is still active on taobao. I guess they are not interested to ship internationally now.

That’s too bad. They have good lineup of budget flashlights with micro USB charging.

It’s a pity because the X2R was my best seller at work Sad
Maybe the Zanflare F1 will be the new one ? I don’t really like it though

I tried the S9… DOA
I still don’t know if it will be a good alternative, but I do like the aesthetic better than the F1 for sure.

I agree. The Sofirn SC31 is an excellent noob light

The branding is Mezzol, but yes, the X6 is still a beautiful light, good candidate for an Osram white flat

So their name is now “mezzol”. I preferred “Eagle Eye”. But as Shakespeare would have said, that which we call the X2R, a tube shaped flashlight w/ micro USB under any other brand name is just as damn useful and convenient.

It is a pity that they do not offer XHP70 for X8R-A

There are not many compact flashlights on the market with the XHP70 diode, so the appearance of Mezzol X8R-L aroused my interest. Mezzol is a rebranding of the Eagle Eye already familiar with its budget flashlights. Additionally pleased with the power from 21700, the presence of a neutral CCT and built-in charging. The price is also nice, about $ 35.
Initially, the manufacturer made the Mezzol X8R-L with a slightly wide head, while releasing a fellow Mezzol X8R-A XHP35 with its head wide in body. In the correspondence, I asked if they could make a compact head (it would be more correct to say – a replaceable reflector in the case) for the XHP70 and the manufacturer was easy to lift by releasing an additional compact head. In my opinion, it turned out to be a suitable candidate for EDC, quite compact, in the hand it is very convenient.

Reflectors:

Management is very simple. Short clicks on / off, hold scrolls through the modes from low to high, double click turbo, triple click strobe, electronic lock hold for 3 seconds. The button is tactilely pleasant, it is mandatory to block the flashlight. I have only one complaint about the modes – there is no moonlight. But in general, the set of brightness modes in my opinion is optimal.

The button has an indication. Blue glow – battery more than 50%, red – less than 50%, blinking red – running to charge. Charging process – red indication, end – turn off the indication.
The charge current of 1.8A can definitely be used by a flashlight, possibly more, it is stated up to 2A. The voltage at the end of the charge is 4.18v.

Temperature behavior. Air 23 ° C, no cooling.
1200Lm – 49 ° C after 10 minutes and 56 ° C after 20 minutes.
There is thermal control, operation in the region of 62 ° C, brightness decreases smoothly.
The stabilization of brightness seems to be absent. Schedule of 20 minutes and the launch of a turbo, do not look at artifacts, this is my fuss, not a flashlight.

How it shines (I apologize for the white auto balance):
X8R-L (NW) and Sofirn SP33 XHP50 6000K

X8R-L + Sofirn SP33 XHP50 + Convoy S2 + SST40 5000K

PWM

IMHO. In its price category, a very interesting option, an alternative to Convoy S11 and Sofirn SP33 XHP50.

Sorry for my poor english.

For Mezzol X8R users. Check tail cap spring. I found it to be poorly polished and highly scratches the battery.
