XM-L T6 NW 1x18650 two group 3/5 mode Xiaozhi flashlight

http://www.fancyflashlights.com/goods.php?id=551

Please note I am selling the NEUTRAL version.

Pretty much brand new condition. Only inserted battery, lubed it, and ran maybe 5 minutes total. Very little use. No surface flaws. Nothing wrong with it at all. Ordered around New Year… got a little carried away with too many orders. Now this guy needs to go to someone that will actually give him some use.

Paid $18 for it, but took forever to arrive from Singapore. Asking $20 shipped. Shipping will cost me about $3-5 so I am still taking a small loss, not making profit. Will ship as soon as paypal clears so you don’t have to wait!

Yessir, East Coast [if that matters].

Not sure about the driver. I can tell you its original. Ashamed to admit, but don’t even have a DMM.

Ok, in the specs it lists 2.3A even though the picture shows "8x7135" which is 2.8A (with the 350mA AMC's).  Same thing on the CNQG site.  I'm not sure I like the mode spacing at 5%-15%-100% though.  I'd have to think about it.  Anyone else feel free to jump on in.

Funny, I was just today considering getting one of these with the Int'l Outdoor clip to try out for EDC.

Sure gords.  Tailcap readings on Low-Med-High and general comparison of beam brightness between them (high to med esp.).  No need to pop the driver out.

Yeah it’s not a bad light at all garry. I didn’t notice spacing was off, but barely used it so better to hear from Gords probly.

He probably had to excuse himself from the dinner table (what time is it over there?) to go out to his van where his tools are to work out there. Smile

EDIT - Ah, your only 4 hours ahead of me (dinner time).  For some reason I was thinking England was 6 hours ahead of my time zone.

I had to pull up, get james’ s passport sorted and do some shopping.

its difficult taking tailcap readings doing 70mph when your meters in the back of the van…..

anyway

2.79
1.35
.11

difference is noticable between modes.

it does get warm on high but as I keep mime memory low, its been no issue as low covers 90% of tasks.

TomE got some good test results on his with it scoring highest lumens of the edc lights he tested.

Both myself and Jack the clipper cannot recommend this light enough.

Ok, so that computes to 100% -> 48% -> 4%.  Good enough.

Your efforts were much appreciated!  Thank you!  Think of doing it "for the good of the BLF community".

This is the easily-programmable one, yes? I’ve been tempted to get one so I can play with its firmware… and maybe mount it in a custom-made water fountain for use as a strobe light.

I’m kinda thinking of doing a scaled-down indoor version of this, using a strobe light instead of a fast camera exposure: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uENITui5_jU

However, it’d also be fun to just have a handheld adjustable strobe light. I’d probably need an electronic switch so I could more easily adjust the flash rate though, so this host wouldn’t work well for that purpose. Perhaps a UF-T50 or Fandyfire Rook would be re-flashable?

Just received this light today!  Haterade shipped 'er out on Saturday - pretty darn fast shipping!  I'm at work and haven't lit 'er up yet, but the build quality is really really good.  It's fatter than I expected.  Will be comparing it to my UF2100 (for size).  Got the clip coming from FastTech to add to it (and I might have added about $20 worth of extras along with the clip Smile ). 

Thanks Haterade!

No S2 or S3, just an E1320 3.5A UF2100.

Ok just did a quick comparison to my UF2100 with OP reflector. This one is an all around nicer quality. Tint is much much nicer. The UF2100 looks purple next to it. However the OP reflector gives the UF2100 a much nicer smoother beam. This one has a definite hotspot with a little throw to it, whereas the UF2100's beam is spread out a lot more with a hardly noticeable transition to spill. 

Size-wise its not much fatter than the UF2100 (barely at all). It is quite a bit shorter. 

Is there an OP reflector available for this one? I'll probably at least spray it with clear coat.

My XIAOZHI has an OP reflector .

I think read in another thread that the XIAO- has an 18 degree reflector while the S3 has a 20 degree ...?

What I do

Hey Garry, I have the Xiaozhi ordered too, and that SS clip from FT (three of em actually; I fell in love with deep pocket clips). Looking forward to getting this one in to play with.

Welcome the night.

I have 2 Xiaozhi from back around Christmas. They have the feel of a real quality and durable light. I have had mine apart several times and do like how well its made. Glad you snaged that one up garry or I might have been broke again if someone else didn’t jump on it.
One thing I especially liked is the driver, it’s a 8-amc7135 with the attiny13a that can be reprogrammed with tido’s or dr.jones code to give you what ever modes you like. Ever since I got a Olight i3s from the 50% sale at wallbuys with the moonlight mode. I have been hooked on including a moonlight mode on everything I can reprogram. Mine draws about 4ma in moonlight mode. That mode could last for days even if the battery was almost drained.
BTW mine also has a OP reflector.

The UF2100 is brighter because it's driven at 3.5A and is cool white.  It's also floodier with the OP reflector.  The Xiaozhi throws a little further with the SMO.

Well what do you know!  I should have paid more attention.  This Xiaozhi does have an OP reflector!  Puzzled now why the difference between the beam patterns with the UF2100 I took a closer look.  The reflectors look nearly identical in OP-ness (if that's a word) and width/depth, however the UF2100 has a larger hole in the bottom and the LED dome is projected into the reflector a little further. 

I'd like to find spare reflectors to experiment with now.
