I wonder if that's what they'll actually ship if you order it. If it is, I'd really like to get a couple and try them out. I was about to order some drop-ins from Manafont - guess I'll wait and see what kind of reviews these get. Good find charlestt!

Cheapy but add some decent driver since the stock 1 mode would hardly be my preference. Those two combined might get expensive...

I don't think you'll be able to tell. I like how the claimed output has jumped dramatically from 1000 to 1300 lumens, even though the best the T6 and U2 can do at 3A is 975 and 1040 lumens. I could justify the claim of 1000 as being the maximum emitter lumens rounded up to the nearest 100, but 1300 from 1040?

Should be identical except that one produces 7% more output.

All Solarforce models with U2 are fake (probably Spiderfire, some of them don't even have any logo).

BTW, SkyRay S-R5 was a low quality knock-off of the Lumensfactory Seraph SP-6.
