Yezl Z1X CREE XM-L T6 $29.99

The

Yezl Z1X CREE XM-L T6 is expensive at $29.99 +postage.

 

Would better if it was $19.99 including postage.

You mean this one? It looks like a darker Ultrafire A10B with XML in it. I mean, not a bad size at all. Modes look promising. I can barely hold myself Smile

I think I am going to cancel the XPG version from Kaidomain (back-ordered for 15 days now) and get this...

Mmm... interesting. The same body they used for Q5 and R5.

BTW, how2, Yezl actually make good quality flashlithg, so that price is quite good. For $19,99 with T6? Dunno if Ultrafire or Trustfire would make it for that price.

Isn't 2.5A too hot for this body?

Wow....this is torch looks pretty promising.  It's the first one in awhile to catch my eye from the factory.  2.5 amps is completely doable in this size as long as the thermal issues are addressed (thick pill, good contact, adaquate thermal paste), and as long as it's held in hand.  Definately not one you'd want to tailstand in high till the batteries gave up.  As for the price, hell, it looks like a bargain if the quality is as good as some of there other lights.

Must be more than 600lumens. This one  BTW, has a bezel, wider aperture and a smooth reflector different than A10B. Might be a better thrower than A10B + XP-G I have now.

Damn damn damn....Just ordered one Tongue out 

And I was on my way of making it a week without any new light purchases (homebuilds don't count!)

Thanks for the headsup, How2

Nope...I am a cnqualitygoods virgin.  I hope they're gentle, possibly a nibble on the ear to distract from the pain (of paypal!).  

Honestly, we'll see how it goes.  Just placed the order, so in 45 days I'll either have my torch or be the proud owner of my first paypal dispute.

Cool. I'd hate to see you suffer alone so I'll see if I can't order one when i get home from work. I could have sworn my Paypal account called my cell phone and said "use me."

First post here (Hi all!). I had to order one. I'd been looking at the Z1 for a few weeks and then I see one with an XM-L @ supposedly 2.5A! What was a guy supposed to do? Hopefully I'll forget all about it and then be pleasantly surprised in a month. Laughing

What would the difference be between the one the OP mentioned and this one?

That 50W 4500 lumen HID is calling my name.

IMO it would be the looks but that's just me.  The Z1 looks so much better but the M6 probably throws a lot farther and dissipates heat much better due to the huge head. Surprised

Aloha jb1, I'm just going from what I can see in the pics.  I don't know anything at all Embarassed about the inner electronics part of them lights but I'm pretty sure someone around here does and will give a better and more technically detailed answer.

That's cool fishinfool. I'm really new to flashlights but from the pictures, it appears to have a bigger reflector. I appreciate the reply.

jb1 - Yup, the Yezl Z1 is very similar in size to the trustfire tr-801. A very compact 18650 light.

 

The one you mentioned will be closer in size to the KD c8 xml, with a much bigger reflector, head and overall size

 

Here is my Z1 in my hand for a size reference. I'd consider my hands average size lol. So the light is very pocketable and compact for a higher output 18650:)

mizjif, thanks for the pic and the description. I'm leaning towards the M6 now. Until I start receiving some of these flashlights I have ordered, I have no point of reference for actual size and more importantly, beamshots. Crap these things take forever to get to the U.S.   LOL

It used to bother me quite a bit also but after a while and since there's really nothing I can do about it anyway, I just try and forget about it.  And when it finally shows up in the mail (usually after several weeksFrown) it feels like I got an early christmas or birthday present.Smile

Once I get a couple in to start goofing around with, the wait on the rest won't seem so bad. Of all the hobbies I could have picked - flashlights on a slow boat from Hong Kong. I need another hobby to occupy me in the meantime.  LOL

+postage does seem a bit much, but what a cool light! I wonder how much shipping is to the US? Stop talking about this thing guys... Im starting to want one!

Now that's an expensive hobby.  I would know because I had over 20 guns and rifles in Alaska and I was always broke.  Buying bullets for target practice got pretty expensive but shooting guns was pure fun for me.  Except when doing it during the winter of course.Laughing
