Woah..If your taking requests? How about 17mm drivers input 4.2 -6V Output 5.6 amps
and some 9, and 12 amp drivers? They would see little or no shelf time and you will be inundated
with orders..

Aren’t we talking flip-flops? They seem pretty laid back. Big Smile

FastTech should carry the basic Nanjg drivers we all love so dear - the Nanjg 101-AK-A1 and 105C in particular.  Would be great if they could carry the same driver's as Kaidomain's KD V2 line (the 3040mA, 2280mA, & 1520mA) with their selectable modes.  Selling the AMC 7135 (350mA and/or 380mA versions) current regulator chips would be a big plus too.

So far, the site is stellar. I have never seen a China site so well done. Crossing fingers.
best price i've seen on the 3K flames..please let me know if they are legit when you get them? thks
Will do, but JohnnyMac should be getting his first... just watch this thread I assume.
cool stuff! if they're real that's a great deal..
Yesterday I came home to a package from FastTech containing ten 14500 TrustFire protected Flames and four 18650 protected TrustFire Flame 3000's.  The 14500 were packaged  2 to a 4-cell plastic carrier and the 3000 Flames were packaged 2 to a 2-cell plastic carrier.  They all appear to be genuine with the proper dimensions and holographic labels.  These were my first 3000 Flames and they are about as long as the Xtar cells.  A super tight fit in my charger.  All of the 14500 cells arrived with 3.86v of charge and one pair of 3000's were at 3.85 and the other pair @ 3.67.  All of them charged nicely so far to 4.19v.

Super bargain!!!

Great news Johnny!  Didn't you order TF Flame 26650's too?  Those in a separate order?

I did not, Garry.  I did order a pair of 16340 Flames from LightsCastle to see how fast they ship though.

Dang, I swear you said you did.  Well, would you assume the 26650's are genuine since the 14500's and 18650's appear to be?  Also, I didn't realize the TF 18650 3000's were on the long side.  I guess they've always been this long?

JM - How long did it take from order to delivery?

As I recall hearing from others, yes.  They are a little longer than the 2400 flames, especially with the protection circuit.

Interested to hear about 3000´s capacities and even more, max. Amp capability…

Unfortunately the one thing (ok, one of several things) I don't have yet is a good hobby charger for cycling cells and measuring capacity.  I'm pretty sure that HJK or someone else here has already tested them.  IIRC it's around 2500-2600 real capacity.

I’ve just ordered some Samsung 18650s (6) to see how they compare. I do have a hobby charger and I will confirm if they are real or not when they get here.

Hmm, I think I should order a third set some time…

First set of mine (from Manafont) were pretty good. Almost 2400 cap and GOOD capability to give current, well over 4A.

Second set had less capacity, than regular TF Flame 2400´s, they also gave current worse than any other batts I got Sad

Maybe I should try again…

DIY componentry and other such popular gadgets that has a bunch of reviews and stars associated with said items and just carry all of them. Big Smile H) Same goes for stuff on Manafont, Kaidomain, CNQ, Intl’ Outdoor (not so much, they’re my second favorite right now as they really try to do things right and that’s why I send them business too) and Dino-Direct for starters. Plus others. :bigsmile: I mean this will just cut to the chase. Then that’ll also force them to spruce up their sites, photos, descriptions, customer service (in some rare cases it’s fine-enuff as is), and most of all delivery speed to get to the obvious higher-bar you’ve established here. Then everybody wins because everybody has to improve and keep improving. This is how life works in the major retail leagues. It’s challenging but it works.

Competition is the best leverage-improvement incentive tool ever devised for business as originally conceived, implemented, and continuously supervised by your ultimate bosses, John Q. Public Buyers. Shocked Wink Cash

‘Course the personal one-on-one feedback you’re getting here is well just priceless really.

I placed an order for UV-S5, but cocked up the order thingy, so it thought I wanted 3 not 1!!
Totally my fault but wouldn’t let me reset for some odd reason, unless that too was something else down to me(VERY likely!!).
I contacted Fasttech and was blown away by the awsome quick response and helpful manner in which it was dealt with and sorted.
It is by far and away the best service I have received from a site of this nature, or any other come to that, so f/t are assured of my future orders.

Ordered Fandyfire UV-S5 and TF Cree XM-L 3800lm as separate orders on Nov 30th. Got emails with tracking no. on Dec 3th for both shipments. Let see how long it will take for these to reach Finland.

Fantastic site, great prices and absolutely great site layout.

Just wished Fasttech would have also Blackshadow stuff available Smile

I run 3k’s in my Dry and on DD they will pull 5.4a for a short period of time then drop..great cells through and through..max capacity is around 2500-2600mah as i’ve seen tested..real world use they go for a long time..

Some other great chargers, which could be promoted (it would be great, if you can offer an EU charger version – not only the US Version with an EU plug) :

- XTAR WP2 II
- Efest BIO Charger

Light up the darkness.

Jasmine - Is it just a coincidence that you happened to add 3x 17mm drivers to your inventory within 24 hours of members asking? Im starting to understand the business model and the company name. Fast.. . Can you stock Eggs, Milk, Razor blades, and Red Bull while your at it? lol

Please ask your crack tech team to add detailed specs for

the 3 x17mm drivers?...no rush

 

 

 

Thanks Jasmine
