Looks like it's not available anymore at Tmart.

Can anyone post some recent links to HD2010?

This is what I see, both at $35:

Is there any difference between the two? Are both direct drive on high?

I have the UF HD2010 incoming form easylightbuy.  I'll update this thread when it arrives.  I was looking at 2x26650 and the new Sky Ray king 4x18650... and they just seemed too big for me to pack-carry.  This light will be replacing my 2D MAG ROP incan builds (Fun DIY builds, but theyre just too big and heavy).  So we'll see how this goes Cool

$35 shipped is the best price I could find, for a light with this feature-set.  I kind of prefer the gun-metal gray too.

I finally received mine from DX and I have to say I am still impressed by this 26650 light.  It has a very wide and deep reflector which throws very well.  I like it better than my XM-L DBS.  Quality wise it's a little rough especially finish wise, but I don't care since I paid only $35 for it and it does what it's supposed to.  Here's a quick and dirty video I took of it indoors cycling through the 5 modes.  I'll try to do an outdoor video later.

So you can use an 18650 charger for 26650s?

If 26650 fits in the charger, then sure. It's going to take longer to charge 26650 than 18650, but it should work without problems.

Cool. And that battery gives more runtime or current? Runtime, right?

Correct. Do a search and read up on king kong 26650, people say it's great. I haven't tried it myself, but I'm seriously pondering the thought.

Correct & correct on both accounts... depending on the specific cells in the comparison.  To generalize across the board (26650 -VS- 18650 pros/cons) however would be incorrect, as there can be exceptions.  Heres the charging setup I have been using for the last ~1.5-2 years.  I have had no problems with over / under charging, cell capacity or longevity.

Kramer, would you mind measuring the inside diameter of the tube as precise as you can? I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

Thanks, I wonder how bright this really is compared to the other triple xm-l lights out there. I guess they use a drop-i like this:

Theres some pics floating around the www and its just a spring loaded drop in with no thermal conduction path for the heat.

Hmmm,

So if you had a free choice between the FandyFire HD2010 (3 x LED) and Shadow JM-07 Pro, which one would you choose? (Which one is brighter and has better runtime?)

which better? Gonna buy one of these. Big Smile

I would get the first one.

I am not a fan of spring floating drop-ins, with no heat transfer path for the LED.

Hopefully this wasn't a mistake, but I just placed an order for the FandyFire HD2010 Cree XM-L T6 600LM from DX because I had to have it in the color black.  I also opted for the EMS shipping for an extra $17.00 to New York. Hopefully it won't arrive with to much damage, or better yet, none at all.   

I was going to give TMART a try, but it cost $49.00 from them, and they refused to ship it in some sort of box to protect it, added to the fact, they won't sell it with the 18650 to 26650 battery sleeve.  So I figured, why give them all this extra money when they won't even make an attempt to satisfy me with a little extra careful shipping or toss in the battery sleeve that every other retailer gives you with it.  So much for TMART trying to get BLF business.  Well, not from me.

Hi, I wonder if a C8 pill will fit in the Fandyfire? Can someone please try?

I ordered the grey version from Tmart and it came in a box and included the battery sleeve for it. I doubt the person you spoke to knew what they were talking about.

**EDIT**  My commentary below is based on my experience with the Ultrafire HD2010, not the Fandyfire version.  I am not sure the drivers are identical in these two lights.

No I do not believe a double sided 8x7135 driver will work.  The light uses a standard 17mm diameter driver, but the retaining ring looks like it will interfere with the SMT 7135 chips.  I have a custom programmed 3.5A (10x) board incoming form another member.  I'll probably get to work with a dremel and press in a cut-down brass pill from a P60... solder the new driver into that.  Others have had good results with this procedure.

Several others have told me that ~3.5A is the point of diminishing return on the XML, so I'll stick with that for starters.  I am not expecting to gain Lumens from this mod, its more to gain regulation, efficiency and loose the stupid disco modes.  The 7135 chips are crazy efficient, nearing 100% as Vbatt approaches Vf, at these drive currents Vf for the XML is around ~3.5V.  All these numbers align near-perfectly with the battery space LiNiCoMn cells I am using.

Heres the stock driver:  Actually this is a REALLY nice driver.  Its a direct drive FET, controlled by an atmel-like EPROM.  It uses high frequency PWM for the low modes.  It doesn't have mode memory, it starts out on HI every time.  Which allows the user to skip past the disco ball and go straight from LO back to HI, with a ~3 second soft-press.  Of all the OEM drivers I have pulled and scrapped, this one here is one thats worth keeping for use in another XML light some day.
