The HD2010 I received from them is unbranded and black.
Its great. Don’t have a DMM—but I am very happy with the output on 26650, and I only use it in short bursts anyway.

Back when these HD-2010’s were a bit more popular, it seemed most that were shipped to BLF members, no matter who was the retailer, most seemed to have a lot of chips and minor damage to them which didn’t appear to be from shipping. Like they were this way prior to being shipped

Can anyone tell me the physical condition this FastTech version arrives in?

Is is super bright and throw a long ways?  Then it's probably a good one.  You could also measure the current draw at the tailcap.

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.

Good call…. Just checked on the one I ordered… 2300 ma… Whew!

Mine arrived today. The bad news is it’s an under driven one Sad . Good news is the fit and finish is WAY, WAY superior to the Ultrafire one I received last month from Lightmalls Smile . The LED tint on this one though is slightly purple Sad . Think I’ll just swap-out the driver and LED. When FastTech gets the driver issue resolved, I would recommend this one! Cheers everybody, may all YOUR flashlight buys be good ones! Beer

Hey Babe, check out my new light!!

I just ordered a HD 2010 here, http://www.tmart.com/UItraFire-CREE-XM-LT6-8W-1300-Lumen-5-Mode-LED-Flashlight-Gray_p135765.html Shipping from the New Jersey warehouse was really quick, since I live in NJ. It does have the East-092 driver and it is really bright. My dmm only goes to 2 amps so I haven’t tested the current draw. It appears that this is a direct drive light and should only be used with a protected cell. Please let me know if this is correct or not. I just ordered 6 unprotected cells from KumaBear, here on BLF for this light, but now I will need to use them in my other lights. Now my question is how do I determine if any of my other lights are direct drive? Thanks in advance.

Yes 17mm driver, but has a retaining ring that doesn't allow for components on the rear of the driver.

Dunno if you guys saw my numbers on a HD2010 with XM-L2 on a SinkPAD:

HD2010, before w/U3 1C, at 4.09A (KD V2 w/3 350 7135’s added):

- 986 lumens start, 945 lumens @30 secs, throw: 63 kcd

HD2010, after, only change of XM-L2 U2 1C on a SinkPAD:

- 1360 lumens start, 1329 lumens @30 secs, throw: 91 kcd

For reference, stock HD2010, same battery:

- 4.7A measured, 928 lumens start, 853 lumens @30 secs (no throw #)

** using KK ICR26650E fresh off the charger, unprotected

NOTE: the XM-L2 numbers were good at least for the first 30 seconds. Testing so far seems to indicate the XM-L2's draw more voltage than XML's, so the battery drains real fast, amps/output falls off fast.

 The mod'ed HD2010 has a brass pill press fit in, and 5 5/8", 18 gauge copper discs inside the alum pill.

I was reading your thread earlier today. Good stuff, thanks for sharing! Think I’ll de-dome a U3 when I change out the LED. Can’t wait to try the acetone de-doming method. Also, I’m gonna try to get a machinist buddy of mine to replicate the pill in copper. All you folks inspire me, thanks. 8)

Hey Babe, check out my new light!!

Hey guys,

I’m getting ready to order this light from Tmart. What battery would you recommend?

Thanks for your help!

You'd be much better off getting TF Flames from Fast Tech.  The TF Flames from T-Mart have been found to be fakes.  I'm not sure if T-Mart has changed their supply to real ones, but I wouldn't chance it.  You could even get the HD2010 frmo Fast Tech too.  Don't forget coupon code "BLF" for 5% off.

Thanks for the quick response. Do you recommended protected or unprotected batteries?

The main reason I was considering Tmart, is because I need this for a camping trip next weekend.

From what I understand, FastTech ships from China and Tmart ships from the US.

It depends where you live.  Iirc, Tmart ships from Florida.  My last order with their US option took about a week.  Fasttech generally takes about a week, but it ultimately depends on what US Customs does with your package.  They might let it right through, or they might sit on it for a couple months.

The low mode should be lower.

I would recommend a protected battery, especially if your a newbie with Li-Ions (there are dangers specific to Li-Ions and they need to be handled properly). My few T-Mart orders have taken about a week (minimum 5 days).  My FastTech orders have been about 2 weeks on average (I wouldn't count on having them in less than 2 weeks).  There are some US sources for trusted 26650's I'm sure, but others would have to chime in with links.  Just beware that there are a lot of fakes out there!  And actually, your runtime with a good 18650 wouldn't be that much less and you could carry spares.  Good 18650's would be easier to find from US sources (though prices will be higher).

Oh, and welcome to BLF too!

Just got a TMART HD2010 in, ordered late Thursday, delivered Monday. I'm in NY and they ship from NJ, so pretty close. Must say it was in great condition, and had the old direct drive East-092 driver with impressive #'s on a TrustFire 26650 5000 (~4 amps, 900's for lumens, 56 kcd throw).

Here's the order/shipping info:

I ordered my HD2010 from Fasttech on May 20, 2013. My tail-cap draw was 2.5 amps and had blinking modes so I knew when I ordered it I was replacing the driver with V10+ 2.7~4.5V XML-T6 2-Group 3/5-Mode driver SKU 1250101 (supposed to be a 5 amp driver) and the LED with XM-L2 T6 3C on a SinkPAD. It now draws 3.2 amps on a protected Soshine 26650 and on unprotected Pana 18650 3400mah. It pulls 4.2 amps on a Efest IMR 18650. I no longer buy protected battery’s because all my problems have been with the protection. My drivers are protected and so are all chargers so why do I need double protection? Most of my lights are modded and I’m using Efest IMR cells in them for more current. IMR cells don’t need protection. I read in this forum that the East driver is no longer made. It’s great Tom found one still in stock.
