Ordered 6x Samsung 2800mAh cells on 28th December, got them today. Planning to test them over the weekend, I’ll report whether they’re genuine & up to specs, or not.

Sigh… price increase already beginning. Sad

These were $0.69 for 3+ orders just a couple of days ago when I bought them, now they’re $0.80 for 3+.

Didn’t last too long.

It’s just grievance over how quickly price picks up. It’s not even over “honeymoon” period yet.

 Just ordered a TR-J18 and the FandyFire UV-S5, and 2 TrustFire 26650 4000mAh’s, using GOTECH coupon code. Great prices!! Biggest lights I have now are the Crelant 7G9 and the FandyFire STL-V2, so this will be a step up.

i also ordered the same things as you.. love that TR-J18 it’s really bright.. the catch is, you have to use the extension that came with it to see the full potential of that light ( hint: it’s brighter than Fandy fire UV-S5) :bigsmile:

Oh – thanks! Guess I have to order another pair of 26650’s to have 3 for the best power? I got King Kong’s but they are unprotected, used for single cell lights. Should order the TrustFire 3000 flames (2500-2600) for the UV-S5 anyway, great price on those as well. I got a bunch of protected 18650’s, but up to 2 of the same kind. I do have 4 EagleTac 3100’s, but using 3 of them in the 7G9.


i ordered 2 pairs of 26650 just for this light Smile

Fasttech – How about starting a thread and giving us BLF’s a heads up when your about to
release an item?

question – anyone have this light/power supply?

The same light without battery included takes 3xAA or 26550. Im
wondering if this is the same? Can i replace with a high Capacity 26650 and
use the USB?

It looks as if you would need to pull off the circuit and attach it to your battery in order for it to work.

I ordered a Sipik SK68 from your company and it arrived quickly (considering where it came from) and in perfect condition.  I just put in another order this morning, as I am quite happy with my first experience.

It is with great reluctance that I have agreed to this calling. I love democracy. I love the Republic. Once this crisis has abated, I will lay down the powers you have given me!

The 10% promo code ends Dec. 15.

Any chance you can have a permanent code for BLF members? Many merchants do that.

It could be less than 10%, of course….

Or it could be 15% Wink

I haven’t got much I want at the moment. I’ve spend about $800 on flashlights in the last 28 days. I can’t justify any more now but the 10% is nice.

- $150 of those have gone to these guys Smile

Saying that, if they get some HID’s they will get more money… come on buy some big reflector HID’s and you’ll get my money. PLEASE!

I don’t see any option to change the currency to anything other than USD. Adding the option for Euro and GBP would be a real help for those of us who tend to work on optimistic conversion rates only to bottle out when we add up the basket contents.

Don’t be a chump, be a chimp!

Received 2 x TF Flame 2400’s today.

I think they are Legit, precisely the same outlook as in genuine ones.
I have no time today to do a discharge test, maybe at weekend.

Arrival voltages were 3.62V and 3.50V, which I think are preeeetty Low.
Plastic case was included!

Nope, I said I’m doing it on the weekend. Silly
I checked voltage, though, they all were in 3.78 – 3.81 range.

Sorry for replying you guys late — we are really swamped, by new products.

We’re still relatively new and the fact is our process for handling new products isn’t as streamlined yet, but it’s definitely improving on a daily basis. Orders are shipping on schedule, and it is the number one priority regardless of how many new products are waiting.

We’ll seriously consider that. It’s likely going to be flashlights only though. The GOTECH coupon applies site-wide. We will update here after Christmas and New Year holidays.

We hear you. Give us some time and they will show up :).

This should be up today.

Thanks for the suggestion. We’ve read that BLF likes dealers to keep things in one, or as few threads as possible — we’re a little nervous opening new ones.

I’m personally subscribed to this thread and I read everything. I’ll try to do a better job keeping up with everyone’s questions.

Jasmine - I noticed the GOTECH coupon discount wasn't applying for more than Qty 1 of an item, at least not for the full 10%. Is that how it works or is there a problem? For example, for SKU 1066607, I chose Qty 2, price is $10.88 and total price shown is $20.66, discount of $1.10.

 Not sure if anyone else knows or sees the same issue.

i e-mail them.. and this is what they said..
we put out this coupon on CPF and explain that the first item is 10% off,
i guess you might get this coupon on other forum but somebody forgot to mention about the how the 10% off works

i said.. fair enough..thanks

Just got my first order yesterday. Couple of lights, TF flames in 14500, 18650 (2400 mAh), 26650, and some of those Samsung 18650 ICR’s. Everything looks great, all batteries shipped in hard cases expect for the 26650’s which were in sealed ESD bags. Since were all waiting for discharge tests, here’s my 18650’s compared to some “real” flames from DX a few years back (so they are a little worn) and some “fake” flames I got from DinoDirect last year. Only have on of the Samsung’s done (and it was only charged to 4.2V, need a new hobby charger), but the other took the same initial charge, so I expect the discharge to look the same. Also threw on a line for a Tenergy 2600 mAh protected from the set I picked up last year on eBay.

Looks good to me! Working on the 14500 and 26650 graphs next.

Here’s the Trustfire 26650 5000 mAh vs. the 18650’s. Only have one done and capacity on the first discharge cycle came out to 3884 mAh. Pretty close to the 4000 mAh most are seeing from these, so this looks legit.
