I have purchased an Ultrafire C8 U2 from lightmalls.com, and what I got was definitely not fake. The quality of the product was amazing for that price, and also the driver did pull over 3 amps, so there would have been over 1000 lumens being put out.

Just read my review of that light.

I contacted them and said “it is your mistake” pay the shipping cost I will send all crap fake items you sent me back, but they declined, and they said “you paid the price of cheap version you have to pay more for original…” so I said I do not care about fake bateries you sent me I don’t have problem with them, ship me original Z5 with registered mail (the one that you can see pictures in their website) I will send that amount to your PayPal when I get the real item, they already declined that too.

Ok, their shipping was fast, just 10 days. Very fast honestly!

I also ordered 2 x Ultrafire 502B from them before this happened and I liked the items!
No problems! I am happy with that order.
I got what I saw in the pictures! It draws 1.3A (maybe because of my old batteries taken from laptop) but it is not important , it already gets really hot!

Honesty is the best policy especially in business trade e-commerce etc.!

I want to get what I see in the pictures, I want to get products as advertised!

They say it is original, they put in their website pictures of original items but they send fakes! And they do not accept their mistake! If I was happy with my first order probably I would place many more orders from them.

Finally, let’s say I am wrong official UltraFire website can’t be wrong:

I bought an Sipik 68, an UltraFre SK68 clone and a Smiling Shark AA zoomie with square knurling from them and like all of them so much I ordered more.
The SS has a moving pill, but the screw ring has fins on it, and I like it cause it is so odd. I added heat sink goo and use only AAs in it. All dim out gracefully over a couple of hours time, so you never get stuck in complete dark, like old flashlights did.

Flashlight designers should look at lighthouses and pottery.

“Warnina” That’s so full of fail.

Sorry for your luck, thanks for the warning.

You’re welcome.

It is ok just some money, I have one more order coming from them but I think they are fake too.

Actually I am lucky as this happened in right time before I placed another order from these liars.

I was googling I also found this:

http://www.ultrafire-shop.net/page3.php

I am trying to remember to avoid Lightmalls, but I am not so sure about ultrafire-shop either. There list includes sites that we like better than we like them. As far as I can tell, UltraFire is about the same as no brand name, so what is a fake UltraFire? They didn’t bother to pay $0.001 to use the name?

I have ordered directly from Ultrafire-shop.net and there is a very large difference in quality of the product. I believe they are the original Ultrafire as I too have done some research. If you by Ultrafire anywhere else it is likely to be fake.

Sorry for dragging up an old topic

Remember the SRK disputes I had?
two vendors were really bad in these cases.
Not responding to questons before the dispute was started
They said they would put me on the blacklist
They claimed the emitters to be Cree despite the clear pics.

Both used the name Jack
This seemed odd, Jack could not be a very common name in China

And just now I recieve tow messages in AliExpress, from these two vendors, the same body text

So I wanted to warn, but found this old thread already warning, so thought it would be better to just add it here.
