I hear you… but maybe there’s a little ebb in the tide hopefully Smile

“We are the manufacture of Ultrafire collection,and here declare that we had not manufactured over 3000mAh above for #18650 rechargeable…” “Official” Ultrafire website: http://www.ultrafire.net/shownews.asp?id=60

and from another website (google/bing translation) for what its worth (makes some sense though):

“UltraFire trademark applications for registration and corporate Lu Shuying Hong Kong, subsidiary Shenzhen Huafa Technology Ltd company name. Company’s official site http://www.ultrafire.net the domestic application of the trademark had not entirely approving, without legal protection, so now the manufacturers are in the use of its trademark, and why online flashlight, batteries, UF everywhere, why prices vary.”

Ultra-fire never was able to brand✔ the name (it seems)

We understand that here at BLF… “UF everywhere” (Ultra-fire everywhere)…

For what it’s worth.

But I get you poster… whenwas the last time we saw a company that said, “hey, that’s not 92 octane you’re putting in your tank…”

I like fasttechs descriptions for the batteries……. many of them have disclaimers for lower mAh… good job fasttech!

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

Yeah, we'd like to know current on High (or whether it's direct-drive or current regulated) at the very least, and mode spacing (i.e. 100% - 50% - 10% or whatever it is) would be helpful.  Without knowing the current on high we don't know what the drive could be used for and would have to chance buying it. 

Thanks,

Garry

Really happy to see such good feedback on this site!

FastTech is really raising the bar in several areas, IMO. The pictures are great and accurate, and the descriptions make a clear effort to be honest instead of parroting slogans.

Westerners will consistently pay a bit extra for this honesty and communication. I hope you continue in this model, look forward to buying from you!

Well I changed my order of 6 x Samsung 18650s and changed it to 8 Trustfire Flames – assuming they are legit. ~2600mAh of power that works in some of my cheaper flashlights is better than 2800mAh of expensive batts that don’t work.

I then looked on there just now and spotted the 7 LED bug eye monster and thought I had to buy it. I then spotted it took batts that I dont have so ordered some of them.

The batt order was placed yesterday, I cancelled it at 11:30 UK time, received an instant gift voucher for the amount I spent and then bought a different order. 1 hour 10 mins later I had confirmation of shipping with shipping number for my new order.

I’ve just placed the order now – 7:45pm UK time (06/12/12) for the 7LED crazy thing and the batts so it’ll be interesting to see how long they take.

Well I ordered a pair of TF Flame 26650's (can not beat that price!) and this 2 mode 17mm driver.  I can't make any promises on when I can get around to testing it and reporting back on current draws though.

Hi Jasmine, welcome. It is nice to see your company taking an interest in us flashlight nerds. Smile I think you will find good feedback here.

I ordered a Fandyfire UV-S5 (King clone) from Fasttech a couple weeks ago. It arrived in less than 2 weeks, which is a new record for foreign vendors! Speed and service like this matter and can make the difference between eagerly ordering again, nervously ordering again, or avoiding altogether. Other vendors [:cough: manafont :cough:] could learn alot from Fasttech on shipping speed.

It was this speed in which I received my order and Fasttech’s pricing that brought me back about a week or so later. Had to get the Rook to match the UV-S5, naturally! At it’s current price I just couldn’t help myself. Smile

If Fasttech keeps this up and continues to price items this aggressively they will continue to have a repeat customer right here.

I like copper

Ive made 3 orders so far and 2 of them have arrived already.

I find this both a awesome and bad, awesome because that sort of speed is almost unheard of from an asian based seller, bad because that buy, button is a little bit too easy to push.

Any chance you could get the balder HD-1 in to go with my soon to be ordered nitecore i4?

If its v1 at $24 it’s only a buck less than Amazon (v2 is $28 on the river)

Might be a great deal for those outside the US?

Pretty easy to tell, just look at the stickers. Yellow = V2

‘appear’ when I’m about to buy something. What I like to see is, ‘it is’. So despite the above confusing posts with circles and arrows which I don’t have the patience to wade through, I nonetheless will send a PM to FastTech to get unequivocal confirmation that indeed the ‘appears to be a V2’ is absolutely nothing but a V2. That’s the way I do business. Steve

I ordered three pairs of “3000mAh” Trustfire Flames. I’d be happy if they keep on like the original 2400s. $4 a cell is hard to beat

But of course! Also, among still others, was the 4A 4 group ramping driver that so far only I-O carries. Guess what? They have a line on it already and may be carrying it. Smile
