$5.93 T6 from wallbuy. Worth to buy?

Thinking of buying this light as it is inexpensive and if I ever lose it, I will not be sad.

Just wondering where can I find review for this torch? It seems so generic.

I’m thinking of buying it as well, cheap and aaa-compatible, could always give it away if i don’t like it. Maybe i’ll buy two and give one away anyway.

Haven’t seen any info about it neither, didn’t someone buy it when their first flashlight promotion was posted here? I almost did, but bought some others instead. Like the uniquefire c108s u2 that i really like, and recommend that you get now that it cost $10.xx

It came up $10.odd for me, no modes listed, the 3aaa compatibility is interesting, but looking at the size of it, I’d be more tempted to buy this in nw myself.

I remember seeing a xml t6 led module cost 6 buck alone. Or anyone can correct me?

So how can a shop sell a xml t6 torch including shipping for 6 buck?

Either, its not actually a t6 emitter, or its a real crappy host. And not really a desirable xm-l.

As I say it came up $10.odd for me. At $10, I would save my cash and get the one I linked, its $18 with a nw emitter, but its worth twice the asking price I saw in your link – decent threads nanjg driver, selectable mode groups nicely tinted 3c xm-l. Good switch, dual o-rings at both ends of the tube.

All in all, it WILL be a much nicer light, I promise you.

Fasttech has T6 module shipped for $3.50 after discount last time. I’m sure the factories can get it for $2 or even much less.

But the wallbuys sale are what it is – pretty much no profit introductory offer sales. It’s working. Smile

i don’t think at this time they’re thinking about profit.. it’s more for advertising. they betting on future orders.
the more customer base.. the more chance you’ll score more sales in the future..
the way they look at it.. they have to pay advertising somewhere.. and these promotions are the best for both:)

The only way to do a great work is to love what you do.

I sent in a 'reservation' for 2 of them. For $5.93/ea, I figured it would worth a gamble.

I’ve leant mine to a friend along with just built c8 upgrade, his Mrs took them home all wrapped in bubble wrap and delivery boxes, he’s not yet rang me so I’m getting edgy to be honest. They’d best come back in the same state they left or there will be serious trouble or a demand for cash. Flat Stare

Yep, that gives $5.43, I still stand by my above comment, I’d save the cash and get the dd light, if you want an AAA/lithium light, get the ultraok thrower, I’m just nit feeling this one.

Great…thanks. Can you add the items to this thread as you add them to the WB promotion?

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

I spent a lot of time searching, i could not find a review of this light on BLF or anywhere else (a BLF style thorough review)

With free shipping they should be bleeding if many people choose to buy this item alone
.

I was curious and checked www.hongkongpost.hk/eng/postage/index.htm, the site for mail. Which mail are they using? Air or bulk or land? Either way it quite expensive

I assume they will only sell a predetermined volume

I’m curious if it will take 26650 batteries, there is a sleeve apparently for 18650s so its a possibility

I bought it from wallbuy some time ago for the full price and got it delivered just before Christmas. It is definitely a very good deal -> solid build,nice beam without artifacts + zooming (very floody), can tailstand, gitd switch cap, works well on both 18650 (I don’t have 26650 but I measured the internal diametr of the light tube which is 23mm = won’t fit I guess) and AAA. The only minuses are flickering on low mode, kind of memory function that pops up next mode, plastic lens and no sealing ring at bezel.

Hi, does it have any labels on its sides? Like it’s an Ultrafire, or Fandyfire or anything?

So does it zoom to very focused or just small zoom?

How many 18650s needed?

Sorry for the many questions.

I think that the fact that this light uses aaa batteries and is so bright, with such good throw with those, makes it a good addition to those of us interested in battery availability.

My question is, when demonstrating the light to friends, does it make any difference if I use the 18650, or the (Tenergy LSD) aaas, is the brightness the same with fresh batteries?

It's not the same brightness with 3x AAA and 1x 18650. With a 18650 is much more brighter.

Light up the darkness.

Is that because it is unregulated, plus aren’t the two battery options delivering the same 3.6 volts?

If a light is a quality light, and well regulated, would it always deliver about the same light regardless of if aaas or the 18650 were used, or if the batteries were partly drained?

That’s a decent light but for the money I’d go with

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1NV0M04965

at just under twelve bucks, it’s well made, and can be either a floody or a thrower with a simple adjustment. can use aaa’s, but is much brighter with 18650. bought my first one a while ago, and was so happy with it I bought one for my entire staff.

I also have the tr3t6, and trj12, but this little light is the one I always carry since its lighter and can do the job of a spotlight and a floodlight, and only uses one 18650 making it easy to carry spares. I’ve ran fenix 2600mah’s, and tf 3000mah’s (protected cells, and even okd unprotected laptop 18650 cells with no problems, and good runtime. fenix 2600’s (protected) seem to run the longest, but at $19 a pop, they’re hardly ‘budget’. tf 3000mah cells last almost as long and are much cheaper.

and yes that’s right, the + connector is quite prominent on this light, so it can actually run unprotected scavenged laptop cells, without the battery rattling around or flickering.

and it has no PWM. HI med, and lo are flicker-free.

I like my trj12 awful well, but there are times when its just too big, or battery life is too short, which is why I always have one of these on my belt.
