Anyone recently buy BLF/X6 from BangGood? Any problems?

https://us.banggood.com/Wholesale-Warehouse-BLF-X6-SE-V2-XPL-HI-1400LM-EDC-LED-Flashlight-18650-wp-Usa-1031450.html?akmClientCountry=America&

Anyone know where to buy them? Out of stock.

I don’t see “KRONOS” on the tube anymore in their pictures. Other than that, they look the same but don’t know about the quality compared to the Group Buy version from 2 years ago.

I’m thinking about buying some for poop hit the fan BOB bag. It has great throw, low low beam, etc. I disconnect the lighted switch to save battery power. Any other ideas?

Disconnecting the lighted tailswitch by locking out via the tailcap-combo?
Good idea, I lock out all my (anodised) lights when not in actual use.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

No, remove / desolder resistor from tailcap circuit board.

I recently got an X5 that has Kronos on the tube.

Isn’t it much simpler to swap this switch with an ordinary switch+PCB you can buy almost anywhere?
FYI: your lighted tailswitch works fine with a Thorfire C8s, VG10 or TG06S without adding a bleeder resistor.
Also works fine with a Jaxman M8.

I suppose you’re right.

The lighted tailcap idea was neat but it bled the power out of my batteries faster than I preferred, therefore useless for me in any light.

In a future poop-hit-the-fan scenario, no waste is allowable, at least in my book.
