Does any1 own this Smiling shark SS-004?

The light in question is to be found:

http://www.everbuying.com/product39341.html

If someone knows a better dealer that would be even better.

I know it is an osram led, and that doesent bother me at all (at that price point, atleast). I want to know if has a driver or it is direct driven and what's the runtime if someone measured that. Also if one managed to disassemble it... can the driver be reasonably easy swapped and if a 17mm fits?

Thanks in advance.

It's a 2-mode light (high-strobe), so I'm pretty sure it is not direct driven. I'm also pretty sure it's is easily moddable, don't know if the driver is 17mm though.

You sure it's 2 mode? There is another with a cree emitter and stated as 2 mode. I'm looking at this one clearly osram.

Hm, no I'm not sure.

These links say so, but then again they say both lights have a cree led, but on neverb one of them clearly has an osram.

Time to find out what can go wrong. Bought the one and 2 protected trustfires 16340 along and used a 6% discount found on web...................... and.... got robbed.

The piece of shit paying system on neverbuying is beyond absurd.

I stated i want EUR. Billed in us dollars and with wrong amount! It should be 8,88€ instead of 12,4USD...

According to google 8.88 eur is 11,5usd

Can't be arsed to open a palypal dispute since the transaction was already completed to cancel it. At 1 time i was able to do it, this time not. Courious though, on every other dealer page paypal asks for 1 last confirmation... or it is a feature of paypal express skipping all the confirmations... hence the name?

Anyway 1usd isn't worth to mention i guess my amex card will charge for currency conversion and add their 3% on top.

Random daily advice...

Get a mastercard. AMEX is really a POS card. And neverbuying is still holding strong by his nickname.
