I know DX lumens claim is all over the board, but why are some XM-L lights rated at 1,200 lumens, 1,000 lumens and the ones on here @ 510 lumens? Do some have better drivers? They're all listed as T6 so what gives?

The ones stating the 510 lumens also stated they are driven at a regulated 1400 ma (1.4a) while the 1200 lumen claims are driven at 3000 ma (3a)

Dx shXt me. My order was "packaging" for weeks and then I ask to cancel it - so they post it. I'd rather pay a few dollars more at KD and manafont etc.

sorry not  really off topic as I ordered my xml light after seeing a "whats new at dx thread". Still waiting.....Frown

Both links won't work for me for some reason in both IE and Firefox.

I think this is aimed at the TR-1200/WF-500 type of lights rather than Maglites - it seems a little on the large side for a Mag dropin. The Mag head is a little under 52mm inside diameter. I think. The Mag replacement lenses are 52mm in diameter and are larger than the inside diameter of the Mag head. If it will fit in a Mag head you'd either need to use a 5 or 6D since it gives a minimum voltage of 5.8V. It would probably run for a very long time on full output in a 6D but that is hardly a pocket light.

 

But it is quite possible I am wrong - it wouldn't be the first time.

Don: I think you're absolutely right about the dropin being for UltraFire WF-500. If you look closely you can see the threads at the end of the reflector which is the way you install the reflector in the WF-500. And the contact springs looks to fit the WF-500 to.

To bad about the flashing modes though...

4D mag?  There are a lot of options for that one as long as you don't mind a bit of dyi. A pretty simple one would be the 5xR2 drop-in from dealextreme for about $33

Those Ultrafire 504 XM-Ls for $20 seems like an outstanding deal.  I couldn't build one for that; the stainless bezel ring alone is $2.50 at Solarforce and figure $10 for the host.  If Manafont came on here with a cash-back campaign that netted an XM-L drop-in for $7.50, think there might be a stampede?  These may or may not be the quality of a Solarforce but even so . . . am I talking myself into this or just pointing out the obvious?

Very good find, either way.

No referral links and nothing embedded . . . ever.

What we lack is good flashlight bodies (P60 and others) for cheap! At 5-6usd i would instantly get a few 504B or similars. But no1 i think is interested in seeling those with just 20% markup...

I know it's not going to happen but I wish they'd just knock it off with the box sets. The box itself makes shipping uneconomical for most HK-based retailers, which in turn unnecessarily increases the price. The batteries are almost always unprotected and/or of questionable quality and the chargers tend to not exactly inspire confidence. *steps off soap box, stops preaching to the choir and grabs another slice of cold pizza* Wink

I'm with you on that one Oxy Moron, but I'd bet that Average Joe does like the box set and it's a way for them to increase their profit margin.

I sometimes look for lights with box sets if I am buying them for the friends or relatives. It may sometimes make it economical too, as I tend to buy Black-Flame Trustfires as 18650 and a more decent charger instead. Ok, that charger thing sounded like I'm handling a bomb. Maybe just protected cells and a crappy charger I could get.
