I’m wondering when they are going to list this one.

http://dx.com/p/fandyfire-hd2010-xm-l-t6-5-mode-1800lm-3-led-white-flash...

Although I am probably going to buy the Fandyfire SRK soon.

I’m a junky, I mod lights so I can sell lights so I can buy more light to mod so I can sell lights to buy more lights to mod.

That one is a really bad design.  No thermal path so it burns up.  You don't want it.

Thanks for letting me know.

I’m actually planning on buying the Fandyfire King from Fast Tech. It will be my forth order from them. They have been great.

When are they gonna figure out that most people buying this want it with a U2, or U3, or XM-L2, or at least a NW T6?

It arrived today. Has “Fandyfire HD2010” logo. And the weird thing is that the PVC pipe, 26650-to-18650 sleeve was glued. Can’t take it out. So I could only use 18650 on it.

Is the 18650 battery tube glued in or just a tight fit? 18650 and 26650 are the same voltage. The only difference is that everything being on a level playing field a good 26650 battery may be capable off delivering more current than an equal 18650.

If the BLF code is still good (5% off), it’s only $28.61. Mine is on the way on the fast, slow boat from China.

Hey Babe, check out my new light!!

Did anybody notice on Fasttech’s page that this light only draws 800ma on high. Listed in the OUTPUT WARNING above the price. I have a Fandyfire HD2010 from lightscastle and it lists the draw at 2300ma, has a bigger hotspot than the Tangsfire HD2010 but otherwise they look like they were built in the same factory. Maybe they ran out of 2300ma drivers and substituted them with 800ma drivers, I’ve seen this happen many times with other parts.

Damn, I have one arriving in the mail and when I ordered no such warning was posted. I would never have ordered if I knew it only drew 800ma.

Total – $242.77

Not bad, a $242.77 budget flashlight I can sell over at CPF!!!

Sure it was not just one or a couple with that low output? Could just be a case of bad ground?

I think we need more confirmation on what's going on with these lights only pulling 800mA. We need everyone that receives on to test theirs and report back. The ones that only pull 800mA could be random.

I don’t think it is random – they have this posted:

Quote:
0.8A~1A current output * read the warnings section Output Warning: this light has an exceptionally low current draw (about 800mA on high). While this extends battery life (runtime per charge), the LED in the light is not driven to its full potential. In other words, you may find the flashlight somewhat dim compared to similar Cree XM-L lights.

If driver swapping is needed, I may want to change to one with regulation and without blinkies. what other driver works with the hd2010 besides the east092? Will this work?

Not with the stock driver retaining ring. You'd need to use the P60 pill method or something similar. Details on that have been posted. 

Those "2300mAh" specs are crap - it's direct drive.

It’s weirdly glued to the pill. So I could screw the pill just by turning the pvc pipe. You can imagine.

Anyway, the warning message of underdriven only came out just a few days ago. And when I ordered the warning wasn’t there. How do I check if mine was a ‘good’ one or a ‘bad’ one?
