The batteries and charger don't look so great.  Don't know about the flashlight or LinkDelight.

Its crazy that the batteries/charger are only $2 more. I've been looking at that so many times.

Wow that looks pretty nice.  Note that YOU pay shipping, so you might see cheaper prices than say dealextreme.

Also note that there is a good deal of exaggeration.

It aint 4500 lumens.   Its 1.5 amps per XM-L, which is about 400 lumens.    The TK70 uses 3 amps per XM-L and its 3 combine to hit 2200 lumens. (733 each) by way of comparison.   So expect about 2000 lumens, not 4500.

Secondly I dont know of any 3800 mAh 18650 battery.  They are at about 2500 to 3000 mAh currently. 

So keep in mind that they do lie a bit more than most sites.  I especially like the 1200 lumen(!) single XP-G diving light.  I mean really? 1200 lumens?   It actually maxes at about 1 amp at 300ish.

 

That said, this looks like a pretty good light.  Certainly a reasonable price for the light plus cheap charger plus the batteries.

TF R8-A3?  With XM-L?  Man if it really has xml in it and it goes kinda DD on 14500, that would be a Xeno killer! With a clip no less.  I love the R5-A3 xpg.

Is this old news?  Seems this light would have it's own thread.
