Thanks Tim!  It's a very nice charger but it would have been even better if it had all of the C9000 features.  I've been conditioning a dozen Tenergy 10k D's so it's been very busy right out of the box.

Is yours more than 3 yrs. old?  That's how long, I just read, the warranty is.

BTW, what nimh D batteries do you recommend or prefer to use the most? 

Yes, if they ever upgrade the C808M to have the same features as the C9000, it would totally kick @$$.  Mine is about 3.5 yrs old so sadly just outside of warranty period.  I had purchased it along with AccuEvolution 10000mAh LSD D-cells.  These have been absolutely fantastic and while I've never conducted any discharge tests, they are used in my power tie rack and charged maybe once a year.  They are now serving duty in a Rayovac 3D lantern as I just picked up 4 Tenergy Centura 8000 mAh LSD D-cells since I've read good things about them.  I'll let you know how they hold up in the long run but for the price, I think they're pretty good value.  The AccuEvolutions are very pricey.

I'll post the C808M tear down over the weekend.

Cheers,
Tim

 

Thanks Tim!  I've got a dozen Tenergy 10k mah's and will see how they hold up in my old 2d xenon lights that my dad likes to use.  They have rubber ends so they don't break when he drops them which is all the time.  Frown

I just received a knife (Smith and Wesson Bear Claw) that I ordered on Ebay from a Chinese seller and I received it today just 9 days later!

How that’s possible I don’t know but I’m not complaining. The seller was ibestoffer4u by the way.

What I got today was a very old and neglected project finished. My 18650 P-60 drop in headlamp is now complete. It is the most comfortable, most powerful, most useful headlamp I have. I started acquiring parts for this build about a year ago and finally finished it today.

1. Small Sun ZY-1801A headlamp.
2. Two Ultrafire headband light holders.
3. One Ultrafire 501B.
4. One Ultrafire 501B pressure switch with tail cap combo.

The finished results in all it’s glory. It has incredible brightness and run time it’s super comfortable and it takes any P-60 drop in you want to use. I can also swap the 501B tube for a 501A tube if I want to save weight and run an 18350 instead of an 18650.


I am already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth.

I got a neutral XM-L Balder SE-1 from CQG. Bit odd, the clip seems the wrong way round. It’s as shown on the photos on Ric’s site, but different from the reviews here, and on Intl Online. I think it’s because the battery tube is on the wrong way. Trouble is, I can only get the tailcap off – I can’t shift the head. Nice and floody light with a 14500 in it.

Also got the Intl Outdoor P60 drop-in. I wanted the neutral version, but the one I’ve been sent looks pretty much the same as the Manafont UF 3 mode drop-in – if anything it’s whiter. I’ve emailed Hank.

I received my P-60 drop-in (from you Erik lol) & an using it in a 501B (also from Erik). I“m loving it. I actually use mine in a niteize head band. I put the light forward toward the tail cap & the weight from the front of the light holds the head at the perfect angle. I just did a run time on med with a Panasonic CGR18650ea & got 5 hrs. of bright light from the P60. I could drop it one level (still plenty of light) & get around 10 hrs. Very good indeed. This drop-in has a very pleasing tint, nice floody hot spot with a artifact free corona.

Thanks, I spent a lot of time focusing the reflector so you get a perfect beam. I glad you like the drop in, you should get many trouble free years of service from it if you take care of it.

I bought a brand-new (without box) Fenix E21 on eBay tonight for $24.95 shipped.

It’s the CW version, which is exactly what I wanted since this will be used as a bike light. I find that the way that cool white beams reflect off of things is better for this purpose.

Anyways, I think I got a really great deal for less than $25.

I“m not sure I follow you Woody when you say “I can“t shift the head”. Do you mean you can“t “remove the head”? I have the SE1 from LH with the “head up” clip & I can remove the head but can“t turn the tube around as the guts are glued inside the end of tube. I got this one so as to clip on my ball cap (plus LH ships faster) & then I ordered the one from IO with the head down clip (LH did not have this one). This has become my EDC because of the very nice NW beam, 14500 brightness & it“s small lightweight form.

Sorry, I meant I can’t get the head off. Maybe I’m just a weakling. Not too bothered though, and as you say, handy to clip on to a cap. At first, I thought there were a load of things I don’t like – clip wrong way round, no memory, starts on high. But it does have a very nice beam on 14500 (haven’t tried eneloops yet), and for some uses, starting on high isn’t a problem, so I’m quite happy with it.

Oh, and Hank is sorting out the drop-in problem. He’s a good guy.

Received my Skyray King today. I can see what the fuss is all about with this light. Shame about the lack of body colour choice but the side switch more than makes up for it. Batteries charged and fitted and can’t wait to try it out tonight to compare it with my Fenix TK41 for throw at 75 metres (the nearest white wall from my front garden).
It was the longest day in the UK two days ago so it will be quite a while before it gets dark tonight but at least the nights will be closing in earlier every day, Hooray!!.

Don't worry. It's just the new design. See my post here.

Thanks the. I must have seen that thread before I ordered it, but forgot about it. It would have been good if it went on both ends, but never mind, it’s really growing on me. The clip is a little weak, but the light still looks better with it on.

Got my order from dinodirect today, I got a 5 mode Uniquefire solarfarce L2m , some extra ultrafire 16350s (that are longer than the 16350 that came with the flashlight even though they are supposedly the same unprotected ultrafire 880mAh 3.6 V batts. Flat Stare ) and a free fridge magnet/bottle opener, everything seems to work great so far.

Got home today and large box at my front door. Maybe a gift from The Shadow. :bigsmile: err no. Damn it- What has my wife been buying. |( Checked the label. It’s a parcel for my neighbour. Crying Damn it. Take the parcel to my neighbour who opens the door in a skimpy negligee.. Wink …….. No- not really. Tired She is old and has a moustache. :Sp Damn it again. My postman sucks and now I wonder if he delivered a parcel to the wrong person, that belonged to me, would they give it to me. I can only hope. :~

Well i just got two deliverys from Exduct. Yesterday I got an android mini PC unfortunately with some intermittent bad power connection. Can use usb for power, but then you lose the possibility to connect a mass storage device. However, quite quick delivery with HK post, took 13 days. Today I got a Navy k602 from them. Delivered with CN post in just 12 days. Very impressive knife I think. Came razorsharp and nicely built.

Today I had a nice little package in the mail

Two of these black 980L clones from ebay vikicompany (Buy In Coins was on the package label)

These two are nicer than my first bronze clone.

The bodies are almost identical to the original 980L

Alloy bezels instead of stainless, but I expected that

No springs on drivers unlike another someone got that broke off

Brighter than my bronze clone

Threads lubed, good O rings

Tail-stand ok.

5 Mode, defaults to high

Decent lanyards if you like that sort of thing

Nice feel to the switch

Nicer beams and tighter hotspot too. No bad rings or artefacts. There is a minute dot not as bright in the centre of the beam, you can only see it when you move the light. I doubt it will be visible in use. One in particular has a smaller smaller and brighter hotspot than the other. That one has a tighter beam than my original and it looks to be brighter too. The colour is whiter than my 980L, which has a nice warm tint.

Al in all, I am very happy with these two lights. They are much nicer than the other clone I have and I think they are 95% or more of the original 980L

Forgot to add, they are branded UltraFire T6-13 on the head, similar to the originals marking. The ano is a little more textured and shinier than the original too.

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
