What's wrong with this picture?

I ordered a Yezl M6 XM-L...my first 18650 light + charger and batteries.  It was delivered quickly, all things considered.  Of course I was excited to get this thing fired up, so I dutifully charged the batteries, checking voltage as they went.  I was pretty impressed with just how stupid bright this thing was!  But, as it was sitting there, it looked like the body wasn't straight.  I checked the bezel to glass measurement all around, and it was identical.  It looks like the body was maybe cross-threaded into the head...I tried to unscrew the body from the head but it only will go maybe 1/4 turn and it stops.  I emailed cnqualitygoods today, I'm looking forward to seeing what they have to say.  I realize this isn't a high-end light, but as far as budget lights go, for me, it's on the high end and I'd like it to be right.

Ouch! Yup, I'd definately try and get a replacement.  Aluminum galls like crazy once cross-threaded...

This requires a full replacement in my book. At least a full body at no cost.

I would agree.  I did get a response from Ric/cnqg this morning, and said that he couldn't see any problems with it but that if I felt there was a problem, I could ship it back and they'd replace it if there was a problem.  I wonder how much shipping to China is?  I don't want to wait another two months, sheez!

Stupid bright is just short of supernova, if I'm not mistaken Surprised

The delivery was actually rather quick, I placed the order on 2/27, and I received it about a week ago - nothing to complain about there.  So you're liking your N-Light then huh?!!
