I didn’t realize the AliEpress retailer I purchased this light from was the same retailer that I purchased my Trustfire TR-J12. So I was really happy when Emmy contacted me with with the status of my purchase and should have it in a few days. She did a great job getting my TR-J12 to me in mint condition, so I’m sure this light will be as great.

I got all my stuffs from the same supplier, be it normal mail or using DHL. DHL is for my j18 to see which factory the good are coming from. “all are genuine”

i think Mr 2100 also got some of his stuffs from China East Face too.

Hi Cop, thanks for chiming in on this. That’s great news to hear.

Hi Guys,

China East Face is a great find. Did you pay $88.91 including shipping or were you able to negotiate a lower price? Note that he is quoting a bulk price (qty 3) of additional 29% off?

Regards,
Bob

P.S. Ric won’t touch these prices

Sounds great, but keep in mind we need to support guys like Ric- he’s a rarity in that he listens to what we want and then takes some action in improving the light offerings… by the way, what you gonna do with 3 of them???

STILL want to know the output lumens of this thing (said by the guy who doesn’t do anything to find out himself but bugs everyone else about it!!? 0:) ) Silly

Just to mention- this is the best forum, hands down

I think they may have been running a special for about 4 days, but I paid $88.91 for it. I felt it was a very fair price and I don’t think any other retailer would have matched it. I’ll know on Tuesday if it’s worth the price or not, but I love these 26650 lights, so I’m sure I’ll love it no matter how hard or soft it’s driven. It’s been my experience diving lights tend to be driven easier, but we’ll have an answer to that in a few days.

NOTE: As of now, the price special seems to be over and is back up to US $104.60 including shipping.

Hi gang,

Just got my TR-DF003 2×26650 3xCREE Diving Light. Man is this tailcap huge!
Briefly tested it in the house to make sure it worked and all seems great. The Trustfire 5000mAh batteries appears excellent and both came with a static charge of 3.65v. I’m testing the dual bay TF charger now.

The tailcap reading on HIGH mode was 1.92a using a different set of Trustfire 5000mAh batteries fully charged. I’ll post some beam shots and other photos later tonight for you all.

Also, anyone looking to purchase from this same retailer, I can assure you Emmy is really on the ball. This package was so securely packaged, it’s Trustfire box placed inside a heavy duty cardboard box that was virtually impossible to damage the flashlight.

Hi Pok, yep, that’s the number I got. As soon as the other batteries are charged, I’ll get a lux reading too. There may be a delay with the beam shots, it just started to thunder storm here, damn it.

Here are a few shots comparing size to the Trustfire TR-J12 and Fandyfire/Ultrafire HD-2010.

That’s thicker than i would have guessed. Tail cap looks like it doubles as meat tenderizer or a “STFU or else” tail.

I did find it for $84 shipped and a US seller. Im going to run it past Ric first. Thanks for the pics, let us know what you think of the finish etc..

Finish is surprisingly good on both my lights, no chips or missed spots, non anodized threads though. One light was greased and the other was not.
Each light has 10.. yes 10 O-rings! This light is at least double the output of my Malkoff triple Q5 mag rated at 700 lumens OTF.
They are heavy but it feels really good in the hand. Wish they would take one of the four fins off around the head to make room for a bigger hand.

That was really funny and probably the best way to describe the massive size of the tail cap. The finish or anodizing is flawless and I love the anodized tail treads so it can be locked out. The bezel easily removes to reveal a collar that can be unscrewed to get to the LED/reflector, but I didn’t go that far with it. My O-rings were not greased, but I did grease them before I did anything to the light because I didn’t want to risk tearing them.

Hmmm. One guy says the threads ARE anodized and the other guy says they are NOT. Standards or quality control issues?

I’ll post a photo of the threads to see if there’s a difference between them.

The threads have to be anodized on this light. Only by rotating the tail cap back and forth is the only way to switch modes. The only thing with all these O-rings is the rotation is a bit tight, but otherwise I really like it.

Also, LUX was 420 lux on HIGH mode.

Thanks Richie086. “Also, LUX was 420 lux on HIGH mode.” I wonder what that is in lumens?

300winmag – how about yours? Are they really NOT anodized?

On my particular example Trustfire dual bay 26650 charger that came with the light, it would only charge the Trustfire 5000mAh batteries to 4.10v. This charger has the 3.0v and 4.2v dip switch setting, and of course was set to 4.2v. So I removed them and have placed them in my single bay 4Sevens 26650 charger. At least I’ll be able to get them to a full charge now.

My bad, The threads for the tail cap “ARE” anodized, the threads that go into the head are “NOT” anodized. I had the head off one light and just assumed it would be the same on the other side.

So for the bad news…
The reflector module for one light is loose and I need forceps that have 2 prongs to tighten a ring that seals the glass over the reflector. I found a nice pair of scissors that fit perfectly but the ring will not tighten any more. So the people from “Online Store 711140” (the company I bought them from on Ali Express) told me if it is tightened all the way then there is nothing more they can do, they assured me it won’t leak though. But I can hear it rattling around in the light when I shake it…. I guess I just won’t move it fast.

And for the bad bad news…
One light died today, yup toast. I had them both on high for 5 mins while getting the positioning right for making my dive tray and the light with the good head just went out. I turned it off and back on, nothing. I removed the tail cap to take out the batteries and was assaulted by the nastiest burnt electronics smell I’ve ever come across.
After smelling it a few more times for curiosity sake I took the batteries out and swapped them with the other lights. Nada.
LEDs look fine, looking down in to the light I can’t see anything wrong. I am about to open a dispute with them.
EDIT: I for some reason cannot open a dispute, I guess when I contacted them about the rattling noise they knew I received the package so they closed the books for disputes. I will see what they say.

Richie086: Are you saying the chargers that come with the lights do not charge them to there full potential?
