I got this lil guy today. I LOVE it so far. The only thing I want, is a NW emitter in it and it’d be tied with my ZL SC600w for favorite light.

Speaking of SC600, check out the size of the EC2 in comparison. Impressive.

Nice Smile
Whats the output like on the EC2?

Two, 5 mode XM-L drop ins from Erik. As Gordon Sumner said, “Bring on the night, I couldn’t stand another hour of daylight”.

I remember a time, when I searched for lights to fit my needs. Now I search for needs to fit my lights.

I like the look of that. Are the rated lumens realistic?

If possible, could you do an outdoor beamshot please?

Cheers
Matt

The UniqueFire F12-A arrived this morning. A full review is coming but for anyone on the fence between this and the TrustFire Z8, go with the Z8.

I got APEX ST6 from Ric.

Simply beautiful light. Go and grab one while the group buy is still active.

More initial impressions in the ST6 thread.

Have got mine too. I can second that, it’s really nice looking. I just love stainless lights.

I enjoy seeing what you folks get in the mail almost (emphasis on ‘almost’ LOL) as much as getting something myself. so much so that I failed to realize that Monday I received a Shining beam S-mini XPG that I absolutely LOVE. 360/165/9.5 Lm . Still love & EDC the Balder SE-1 but have now added the unobtrusive, ‘light in a tube’ S-mini too my EDC arsenal! Hey, 2 pockets, 2 lights (oh, & 1 around my neck).

Nice to see the low is fairly low and medium useful for a battery saving high.

Yesterday I got a Z5 clone with 1x18650 from eBay

 

Pros:

- Cheap

- Build quality is good (for the price)

- Has everything I love in my Z5, but in safer format & easier to mod

- Not too small, fits my hand perfectly

- KD 8x7135 V2 3040mA driver fits like a glove (=> instant mod!)

- no flashy modes (with KD driver)

- totally unnoticeable PWM (with KD driver)

- Moon-Med-High with memory (with KD driver)

- XM-L is surprisingly bright with 5mA and runs "forever" (with KD driver)

 

Cons:

- Driven low (about 1.5A) & bad modes (with original driver)

- Hollow pill (but with nice amount of thermal paste)

- Beam has ugly outer rings when zoomed in

 

=> Screams for driver change, but is very good after that

(I'll order at least one more)

I hope it’s not to late

I have that soldering station and love it to death it’s awesome and I have used quite a few high end units.

When I bought mine last year people were reporting the wires were improperly routed and the units would burn up.

It’s very important that you open up the panel on that soldering station and make sure the wires are properly routed.

These Hakko tips from KD fit perfect and are very reasonably priced. Only order one or two because they randomly ship the big cutting tips for some reason.

I’m doing a run off between the S-Mini (high 360lm)& the e1320 5 mode on mode 4 (about 350lm) using the same kind of batt (cgr18650) fully charged. neck & neck @ 45 minute at this point. The winner shall receive a gold medal. LOL BTW, they are holding at 113 f (45c) so no heat issues.

Hard plastic battery case bought to hold the growing collection of batteries I have recently and relentlessly accumulated in the past few weeks.
Trustfire X100 +batteries/charger which I just had to have. This is by far my most expensive purchase but since I really needed some 26650 cells it made allot of sense.

This also finally came in from way back when it was talked about on here. Great light and it came with both the 4aa and 26650-18650 adapter.

I got an increase in child support payment from PA Domestics. Went from 2 kids to only 1 and the payment went up a little. WTF???

Hifi can be budget, can be non-budget Sad Slowly working my way through to the budget beaters of the audiophile end.
The white ones are LSK M4 – budget kit speakers for a balanced performance from a small budget ($99 each, $200 a pair at the time) Not too bad at all, but low and high extensions are rolled off to say the least, but present in a very tonally balanced and are easy to listen to.
Bamboo built one stained dark cherry is the Ascend Acoustics Sierra-1, Extremely clear with huge soundstage, and very good low end extension (very good candidate for a 2.0 setup). Slight midbass depression IMO, but reviewers described it as midbass transparency… but other than that an AWESOME set of speakers. cost me 25% more becasue if shipping to australia, but still worth it.
And the sub was just received (still in plastic wrap), Rythmik F12SE, servo sub, with the feedback control to improve accuracy and speed. Regardless, a small 12” cube with better extension (and quantity) than an existing 12” isobaric box thats twice as big! Its the quality of the bass is phenomenal, and the onboard parametric equaliser is what sets it apart from most plate amp subs.
ATC loudspeakers look very very fancy!

Sorry for the off-topic nature of this post, I shall bring it back slightly with a new light source in my room! With integrated blue led glow becasue neon isnt cool enough, however I prefer the warm tint at night though….;) (oh and that LED light was an old headlamp that I made, now re-used as a under-bed light, now illuminating the driver so I can see the cone movements through the grille. Brightness adjustable from dimmer than tritium to some 200 or so lumens, enough to get hot)

@ okwchin

Nice setup. I knew i’d seen that sub somewhere before, the drive unit look familiar. I’ve heard great things about the Rhythmik gear.
I had a pair of ATC scm19’s, then scm50asl’s, and now some more industrial PA-65’s.

Sorry for going off topic also.
Here’s a funny light/electrical tester. Its a Fluke LVD1

Here’s a beamshot of mine. Check out the beautiful beam Big Smile

Cheers
Matt
