Your english may not be good, but at least you know what's important to us.

The low mode should be lower.

This is a pretty good deal. It's a 18650 zoomie, under $10 shipped w/XM-L2, decent pill. The switch is not looking good (sealed up, no retainer ring), but not surprising at this price pt.

My similar Sipik SK73 is a hollow pill(ow), 17mm DD configured driver, and has an aluminum retainer ring for the switch, so it's easily serviceable. I'm unsure what amps this driver in the Dealmetic light will do.

I have problem checking out. When I choose International Air Mail (No Tracking), it says “Shipping option is incorrect, please choose a valid shipping method”.

cross reference, they started a new topic:
http://budgetlightforum.com/node/33200#new

says there the IT folks fixed their shopping cart.

I’m still hoping for a picture of the other side of the pill, to see how flat the surface is that the LED is on and have some idea how it transfers heat away.

I keep trying to purchase by non-member checkout.
I add the light to my cart, change to free shipping option,
then on the bottom “non member checkout” I enter email address
and click “paypal” but it keeps putting me back to an empty cart with the
message “There are no item in shopping Carts,
Check out CANNOT be completed.”

Please tell me how to purchase this light with paypal.

Have you had any confirmation from Dealmetic yet?

I ordered two this morning and got a Paypal confirmation of paying but it doesn’t say what for and no auto email from Dealmetic, I even emailed them asking for confirmation but as of yet haven’t heard back.

Fair play to Dealmetic they have replied saying order processed and ready to post out.

Hope their delivery is faster than Lightscastle, if this comes as fast as their getting it ready to post I’ll use them again :bigsmile:

I got one of these in. It is a true DD - high amps on a good cell. Wow, great deal, pill top is a full 7mm thick - unheard of the the budget world at this price! The tailcap assembly can be opened - I drilled two holes into the plastic, used a needlenose and was able to twist it out. Copper wired up the spring - she is cranking now Smile.

Ordered #2 - great deal!! XM-L2, thick pill top, high amp DD driver - can't get much better for a small 18650 zoomie.

It's the ZeusRay - weird name, but...

It's the type that has a very wide flood, which I like - beats the SK98 in flood width, and much wider than the Sipik SK73.

Thanks Tom, because of you I have one on the way and will probably buy more. I don’t think there’s a better performing zoomie at this price. It’s an amazing deal.

I ordered on 8/11 and got it today 8/21, I never got any emails from Dealmetic,
I like it, its a little brighter and the flood is a little wider than my no name sk98.
It does get hot if its on high for a few minutes. In the picture the front of the flashlight is 12 inches from the wall.

My 2nd was ordered 8/19, got here last week - think early - I was away on vaca. Some sort of record - 8 or 9 calendar days? This one looks good as well so far. Didn't finish the mod of the 1st one. I spent a bit of time purusing thru AliExpress offerings with their discounts  back then, and nothing even discounted could compare to the deal on this light - that's why I ordered another Smile.

How hard was it to get the pill to come out?
I’m just short of using a hammer and nail, because twisting with needle-nose pliers isn’t budging it at all, the aluminum around the holes just deforms when I twist really hard.

Oh boy. Both mine came out with just using a needle-nose, but it took some force to get it moving from the "stuck" position. Think I used my HomeDepot rubber gloves to get a good grip though - finding these invaluable. Here you can see the holes are fine after removing the pill:

Finished the mod to the first one. Put in a Nanjg 2.8A with adding 3 350mA 7135's, so total is 3.85A, custom programmed with modes: moonlight-6%-32%-100%, XM-L2 U2 1A on a 16mm SinkPAD, 22 AWG wires. The SinkPAD is sanded down to about 1.2mm (from 1.55mm) so it's closer to the stock 1.0mm thick aluminum star, for focus, and then it's screwed down. The stacked 7135's are on the battery/spring side because of lack of space in the pill, so I left the stock Nanjg spring to protect the 7135's. It's doing about 900 lumens @30 secs now in full flood, tailcap measured at 3.7A at best. I copper wired the tailcap spring which helps, but still can not obtain max output for the switch.

Couple of noteworthy things with this mod:

  • Not able to achieve ~3.90A out of it (doing just a test of the bare pill), just 3.7A or so. I think I got an emitter problem - maybe the reflow, maybe damaged from the reflow
  • in full zoom-in (for max throw), there's a weird shaped bright spot in the corner of the beam pattern near one of the 2 wires on the phosphor. I proved it's not  reflection or property of the lens, so again, seems like something wrong with the LED.
  • Even with the copper wired tail spring, the tailcap assembly loses output. I can swap in my Sipik SK73 tailcap and get higher output #'s, about 950 lumens.

I'm getting convinced the new XM-L2 U2 1A has some damage. I know I rushed the reflow by using a torch from underneath the SinkPAD. I should swap it out - thinking this is causing lower amps from having a higher Vf than normal, and the somewhat higher resistance in the tailcap effects it.

I tried a replacement cheap switch from FastTech (clicky-switch) that made no difference. I even dis-assembled the switch, adding some solder thinking it will increase the flow path, but also made no difference. Wish I could measure resistance under load...

Still for what this light is doing, 900 lumens in full flood, and the nice set of modes, I'm pretty happy with it. I'm using it with the SK73 switch and it's doing pretty good.

I wish I could fit this switch: omten-15a-250v, but it would require some work, and may still not fit. This proved to be a better quality switch when I used one in the SupFire F3-L2 zoomie (http://budgetlightforum.com/node/33210).

Mine came yesterday must be a record 9 days to the UK , Lightscastle took 84 days to deliver the torch I got from them

Nice little torch the flood is better than my Sk98 but the zoomed in is about the same size (quite a bit brighter though) I was hoping for a smaller zoomed square

Just trying it indoors (10ft) the square is about 50% bigger than the hotspot from my Tangsfire C8

Nice small form factor for carrying

OK, I’m giving up on removing this pill. It’s going to be a stock light for now.
I ordered another of these lights just now, hoping the next one yields to mod.

mmph. And I’m going to try to keep my comments in the newer thread from here on:

Mine arrived this morning, didn’t really want a zoomy, as my last experience with one was not great
Anyway I thought I’d give it a try and buy one, partily because the vendor listened to far more experienced members than me and made the torch better because of it, plus it’s nice a vendor actually listened, so thought I’d show my appreciation, as others have and buy one

Not a bad torch at all and ten times better than the 4 x the price nightsearcher one I bought before I found BLF and saw the light so to speak

I think it should be good back up light for caving, where a lot of the time you need a floody light, but sometimes u need a spot to look down a long passage or shaft

Now I just need to make it a bit brighter Big Smile

Try putting it in the freezer overnight.
Being that different metals expand/contract at different rates it may come loose as it thaws.
Worth a try.
