And finally the Trustfire 14500 900 mAh flames. Capacity is quite a bit less than advertised, but that seems consistent with other reviews of these.

So my current verdict is buy with confidence. Let’s hope FastTech can keep this up.

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

 Ahh, ok, thanks! I thought I saw her posting the coupon code here, but maybe not in this thread, but didn't recal details on how it worked.

Thanks for the tests.

So I ordered the TF 3000 which are actually the 2500, was a bit confused first but I like it that they advertise it as it is in reality. Wanted to buy these forever but with all the fakes outside I was afraid…
Has anyone tried the package option or gift wrapping, I was tempted to try it out but haven’t.

What I miss in the shop is a wish list or note list whatever, I have to remove the things I don’t want to buy permanently out of the shoppingcart before I order. But most of the time I have dozens of items on my watchlist, just waiting for the right moment.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

My delivery arrived today, one trustfire t2, four Samsung 2600 unprotected cells, can’t check voltage, my tools are ten miles away but thirteen days from order to receipt of goods in December is mighty damm fine as far as I’m concerned.

The t2 is a nice little light too, shame the missus likes it, I might have to give it her after its got a nanjg and nw emitter and get myself another 8)

When I first signed up in late November that had wish list functionality and I still have access to the initial list I created, but I noticed “Add to Wishlist” has now disappeared from all the product pages so no new wishes for me I guess. Sad

If so, they have one. Right below the ‘Verisign Secure’. When ya click on it the star turns gold and that means it’s added to it. Then ya just go to ‘My Account’ and there they all are in vivid color. Shocked

For example…..

https://www.fasttech.com/products/1/10001750/1127402-12-aaaaa-1-mode-800...

Btw, a suggestion for FastTech. Make the ‘WishList’ button A LOT bigger. Wink

Hmmm, that’s not brilliant…

To be fair its probably a manufacturers picture but it doesn’t instill confidence.

I guess we just need to keep an eye on what comes in, and if unsure ask before you hook things up, there’s plenty knowledgeable on here, no point burning stuff up for want of asking the question.

Doesn’t work with chrome on iPad, but thanks for the info. I hadn’t seen this small buttons.
I like the drop down menu for similar items, that is very good!

This is terrible and unfortunately it’s not a manufacturer’s picture (most of them are actually unable to provide photos at the standard we require). We’re now on the look out for these and will try to screen the bad ones out as much as possible.

Like @Lumatic suggested there is a small star with the words “Add to wishlist” next to it. It’s right next to the specifications table.

We hear you, and it will be likely moved to the buy button in the next update.

The site is supposed to works best on Chrome, which is the primary browser we use in the office. Let us know if you notice quirks. Thanks!

Jasmine-FastTech - would be great if you get the latest CREE LED's, U3 1C's, XP-G2's, etc. You have a T6, but no idea what it is?? We need the tint info listed, as other vendors do (1A, 3C, etc.). Your prices are great!!

And try to stock neutral white versions (like the XM-L T6 3C) since those are of higher demand here on BLF.

Ordered a few little things on 4th. Sent on 6th, arrived this morning. Everything as should be, well packaged, great communication, and remarkably fast for the time of year. I’m happy. Be nice if they had Keeppower cells Wink

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!

One tested. Charge -> full, then discharge with 1A down to 2.70V with iMax B6:

2443mAh!

Perhaps it was first the discharge, so after some cycles it should be same as every time about 4200.

Considering FastTech rates them at 4000, I think it is right on considering variances in testing methods/meters.
At $8.23 each shipped, These are probably the best deal out there in a 26650.
JMHO, YMMV
Thanks,
