I ordered one of these from Meritline a month or two ago. I got it recently, but haven’t had much time to test it yet. Just a few minutes playing with it before my wife rolls her eyes at me. “Another gadget from Meritline???” she says to me. Oh well.

It’s definitely a thrower— the focus is a little too strong for my intended purpose of using it for mountain biking. From a foot away, if I shine it at my arm (during normal indoor daylight conditions in a room with filtered sunlight), the bright spot whites-out my vision momentarily, before my pupils adjust so that I can see what’s being illuminated. (I’m brown-skinned).

If you’ve got specific questions, throw them my way and I’ll check the flashlight out.

Thanks for the ‘welcome’, JM!

I had a closer look at the flashlight last night. It is “Rong Li” brand. Barrel claims 1600lm (lol!). Mine doesn’t have the “caution hot surface” mark that’s shown on the photo.

Glass lens (uncoated, I think). I (intentionally) popped the lens out, and when I pushed it back in, I was showered with a spray of tiny bits of glass. :-/ …The glass didn’t break, though— just bits that chipped off around the threads.

Lots of decent O-rings where you want them to be. Solder quality looks good. Knurled body isn’t as grippy as I would have hoped. Plastic reflector (2/3 smooth, 1/3 textured closest to the emitter). Plastic reflector-centering ring. Green button in the tail (full press for on/off, half-press for hi/med/lo/strobe/SOS). I don’t know how to remove the pill, so I didn’t try.

Beam quality: big ring of flood with circle of narrow throw in the middle. No rings, other than the bright dot in the middle. PWM is obvious on “low” setting. Not noticeable on medium.

Heat dissipation: I’ve got it running right now.

My Ultrafire C8 just lost the driver or LED. For $9 I might as well just buy this and have a new light. I can keep the old C8 for spare parts assuming everything will swap out like tail cap and lens etc.

@f42: It pretty much depends how well it is driven. If it is somewhere near 3A, 1000 lumen are possible (at least OTF), but probably it is more like 600 lumen.

I ordered it on the 12th of August, and so far I didn’t recieve any notification.

Okay I got mine today. THANKS to BLF, I always check mine over especially to make sure everything is okay, and in this case, it was NOT okay. The star foolishly is held in place by pressure from the reflector. The pill cannot be screwed down all the way or the reflector does not press the star against the pill. I know it sounds weird but you’ll see what I mean when you get yours. My pill was screwed in all the way, so the reflector was NOT pushing the star down so it was floating without touching the pill. So if you turned this on without fixing the floating star, I would imagine (as I have done in the past) you would see some smoke and by the time you figured out what it was, the emitter would toast.

Fix is pretty easy. Just pull the pill. They used like a 1mm drop of thermal grease (NOT thermal adhesive/plaster) so the star pulls away from the pill spontaneously without the needed reflector pressure . Wipe the grease off. (This is what I did anyway. Maybe someone else has a better idea.) Added a small glop of fujik. (Probably have to pop the driver to get the pill out enough to really do a good job with the plaster.)

Put the pill back in, but don’t screw it down all the way. Maybe two turns up on mine. Put delrin spacer on top of star. Reinstall the reflector so that it pushes down on the star and holds it in place. I assume I can screw the pill all the way in once the fujik dries? Will it hold a balky star by itself? I’m afraid that the reflector might melt or deform from the star heat.

Mine’s all fixed now. Takes a while to get warm, but it does eventually. Looks pretty bright but I need to wait until dark. Sorta like a C8?

Anyway, don’t turn the light on before you fix that loose star, or I would think the emitter will toast and you’ll have a nifty host instead of a flashlight. Wink

Hope this helps.

As I said, I may have done something wrong here. This is just the way I fixed it. There may be better ways. I’m only a few months new to all this flashlight stuff.

Not in my case. I’ve sent them an email one week later. They told me that it was sent already and changed my status directly to “Shipped”.
If everything is OK my HD2010 should be here next week Silly

>>>>>Aluminium melts at 660°C.

Hahhahhah! I wouldn’t worry if the reflector was aluminum, but mine is genuine chromed Chinese plastic.

And just as I feared, the heat did cause the chrome to fall off the reflector where it contacts the white delrin spacer on top of the star, so that’s why I used the Fujik. Now the Fujik is holding the star in place (and NOT the reflector pressure), and I can back off the reflector just a hair so it’s not in direct contact with the hot star. Hopefully this will stop the heat from further loosening more chrome plate. Can’t screw the reflector too far out because that will screw up the spot focus.

Since the heat caused the chrome to fall off the plastic reflector, I thought it wouldn’t take much more heat to loosen the chrome plate in the actual reflector dish, which is only a few millimeters from where heat has caused the chrome to fall off. Once the chrome falls off even a small part of the reflector dish, a damaged reflector will pretty much kill the light.

I agree that this isn’t the best way to hold the star in place. Is there some better way to do it without Fujik?

>>>>>>Fujik has a higher thermal conductivity than normal silicone, but it’s still a lot worse than non-silicone thermal compounds.

I was told to use Fujik to hold balky stars in place by BLFers on several other lights in other threads. Should I have used something else? The grease isn’t enough to hold the star in place.

I have several lights with funky white rings on top of the star. The white ring did not exert enough pressure to keep the star in place. No other choice but to use a thin layer of Fujik to hold the star in place. Unless there’s another trick? Without the Fujik to hold the star in place, one star was smoking in a sipik — and one in a Ultrafire roasted and died.

For this light, you could screw the reflector all the way down and skip the fujik (or equivalent), but I still think the heat will deform the cheap plastic reflector or cause the chrome plate to fall off the plastic reflector. Of course, I could be wrong and erring on the side of being too safe. I have a tendency to do that a lot. Wink

Have you got a c8 with an aluminum reflector? If so, why not see how it fits, I picked up two for about $8 might be better than worrying about the plastic one.

If it does fit, shoot us a pm, I’ll post you one if you like? Their supposed to be xm-l reflectors, but my c8 xm-l conversion has ground to a halt in favour of fitting the u2/driver in an edc host.
