I ordered mine from TMart on 7/12, and it was in my mailbox today 7/18, and arrived in perfect shape.
Mine is the Ultrafire, gray color, with an 18650 it pulls 2.2A.

The beam is amazing; very similar to my TK41in spill, brightness, color and hotspot size, and that is running an 18650.

I may have to invest in a couple of KingKongs and see how they do.

If they just had not put the blinky modes in, it would be a near perfect torch.

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

Mine standard only pulled 2.7 amps with a couple of different King Kongs. It was still amazingly bright though. The spring in the tailcap was only dry soldered onto the board. It may be worth checking it out.

Yeah, me too.  This could be handy information for many of us!  Actually, how about some details on doing it like where to get the brass ring (or how to cut down the P60 pill to fit)?

I have had 6 HD 2010s come in for driver swaps plus the one I have now. The one from Lightmalls was the only one with no defects so far. The reflectors on the other were all dirty or had spots, the coating on the other had scratches or nicks also. It also was the cheapest as $38.90 but took the longest to get here 5 weeks. This was my first purchase from Lightmalls so I am not 100% sure about them.
There are also 2 different shades of gray the Tmart one is a light gray and the IO one is a dark grey.

im also looking to pickup one of these – tmart looks to be the best price @33.52 shipped… unless someone can find a better price?? Smile

any comments about running a mnke 26650 imr? if this light is direct drive on high i dont want to fry the emitter with an imr (i have redilast 18650 protected and panasonic 18650 unprotected as well i can use)

edit: i managed to do some searching myself and found a tmart 8% coupon (code is INSPIRE if anyone wants it)

i signed up for their newsletter etc and got 50 points

total = 30.34 shipped Smile

Would you mind keeping the wrong flashlight?

Got my HD2010 from Tmart today. The usual nicks and dings in the finish that others have mentioned. At least with the light grey finish they aren’t quite as obvious. The reflector on my copy seems good with no marks or scratches and it’s quite clean. There was no insulator between the back of the reflector and the wires to the LED, so tightening the bezel caused a predictable short.

One o-ring broke while taking the light apart but they are all crappy thin ones and will be replaced anyway. Tail cap was tight but had a bit of flicker when shaking the light. Tightening the pill into the head fixed it. No lube anywhere on the light.

Massively built – it feels heavy in my hand. Not much brighter than my KD C8 on a ceiling bounce, but boy does it ever throw the light down range. This is my first thrower, so I have little to compare it to. But it lit up a large building quite well at 167 metres. This was in a city park surrounded by street lights so it would be even better in full darkness. Can’t wait to get down by the river with a fully charged batt. Silly

Has anyone found nice black ones without any marks on the finish?

I ordered the Ultrafire HD-2010 from tmart.com, and just got it in the mail today. Is it supposed to have “Ultrafire” etched on the side as all the pictures of reviews show? Because mine doesn’t. And now I’m confused :~

I’ve actually found UF version (TMart) later. So, here you go: gray (brown on pics) and black.

And as I said before, you can buy a black TangsFire for about 30 @DD (with 10% off coupon, of course :bigsmile: )

TMart for mine as well. I just received a second gray model, I prefer this color to black. The second one had a minor defect, the o-ring on the cap was broken, but it functioned fine.

Which color did you order? I ordered from Tmart the black color one just because I read alot of posts where the gray ones were nicked. Mine had one slight nick and had the Ultrafire printed on the body. Good purchase, good thrower.

That’s a first I heard of this. Mine (black) has Ultrafire HD2010 written on one side and CREE XM LT6 on the other side.

It might be a clone. Clones may be why some people are claiming to have HD2010’s that don’t perform as well as others. Fwiw, I got my black HD2010 with Ultrafire labeling from Tmart, sent from China.

mine just says cree xml t6 as well

there is no label on the other side

It’s not clear if Ultrafire’s ever made a HD2010….

Who makes the ‘original’ HD2010, if there is one at all?

Fair enough. I don’t see one on ultrafire.net.

The low mode should be lower.

My black one from Tmart was sent from NJ to MA, took ~ 4 days, maybe less? Had Ultrafire and CREE markings.

I have two HD2010's. The first one was a TangsFire that would not pull 3 amps at the tailcap and the latest one from Tmart USA is an UltraFire that pulls over 4.5 amps at the tailcap. The drivers appear identical. The only real difference looking at the two is that the UltraFire is more of a gloss black and the reflector while looking at it appears shiny, when the flashlight is on the reflector appears misty. I have tried washing it gently with detergent and hot water but did not clean up at all.

I purchased a Lightmalls Ultrafire HD2010, and boy does it perform. It pulls 4.6A at the tail on high (King Kong 26650), and does not have a single scratch on the body or the reflector. Nice threads also.

I highly recommend the lightmalls HD2010. It says it is rated at 600lm, but it actually puts out a lot more!

On one slat it kinda sez….‘HWA/HX(K?)S, UltraFire, HD2010”. I can’t tell for sure. Thing is the lettering looks like a restrike or something because you’re definitely seeing ‘double’. lol

Other slat sez, ‘CREE XM-LT6’. This slat’s lettering is ok. Besides the funky print it works aces so far. Had to clean real good though with CRC 2-26 before it would function right. Else this sucka would’ve gone RMA.

Drawing more current in direct drive (emitter hooked straight up to cell) is not necessarily better.

i can tell just by eye that mine is pulling way more than 3a on high, i would guess comparing to some of my other lights my hd2010 is putting out over 1000otf lumens
