Trustfire AK-91, 15*XM-L, 4*26650, 105.13 USD. I am sure I have seen this light before but cannot remember the model.

Maybe this one has been around a while under different names, but I like the looks of this FandyFire M20:

http://www.fasttech.com/products/1/10007862/1689102-fandyfire-m20-1-cree-xr-e-q5-3-mode-80lm-neutral

Looks like a AAA-version of my favorite EDC TrustFire F20, complete with pocket clip. It doesn't say if it's compatible with 10440s though. Only 3W from a AAA; that will be a lot of drain on an alkaline... Innocent

This light with a 10440 (probably with a driver replacement) and an XP-G2 emitter upgrade would be a fun little EDC project...

Here they are kids factory MT-G2’s under $100;

http://www.fasttech.com/products/1/10007958/1700400-ultrafire-t91-1-cree... at $79.04
Looks similar to a Small Sun Zy-t13 but it is different.

And at $116.37;
http://www.fasttech.com/products/1/10007959/1700401-ultrafire-m51-1-cree...
This one reminds me of the Olight SR51 but uses 3 18650 instead of 2.

Pretty cool looking.
Thanks,
Keith

FT listed some new flashlights and asked myself: Why does the shop list new flashlights with a XM-L and not the XM-L2. Take a closer look and notice, that these have a XM-L2 (silver ring around the LED dome and not the green of the XM-L).

These are two flashlights, which design looks nice or are known formerly with older LEDs: FandyFire A9-T60 1*Cree XM-L2 3-Mode 800LM Cool White LED - you will find the Ultrafire branded in a few shops with the XM-L T6. "Here is a review":http://budgetlightforum.com/node/22051 about the XM-L version. The reflector is 8-9mm deeper as the Ultrafire C12 (similar to the C8) - this must be a nice thrower. Price: $18,38 (with BLF 5% less). My link - non aff-link

FandyFire MINI-T60 1*Cree XM-L2 3-Mode 700LM Cool White LED Flashlight black / 1*16340 (CR123A) - ignore picture five with the bad centered reflector - this should be a put togthere error of someone. This flashlight is also available in other shops under the Ultrafire brand with a XM-L LED. Price: $21,82 (with BLF 5% less). My link - non aff-link



   

 

And some not budget lights (with pictures), but with a MT-G2 and one also with a XM-L2 available.
UltraFire T91 1* MT-G2 P0 5-Mode 1200LM Neutral White LED Flashlight black / 2*18650. Price: $79,04 (with BLF 5% less). My link - non aff-link


UltraFire M51 1* MT-G2 P0 5-Mode 1500LM Neutral White, 3x 18650. Price with MT-G2: $116,37  the M50 with 900 lumens  XM-L2 CW $107,59 (with BLF 5% less). These will arrive with a case (similar as the ThruNite cases) . My link - non aff-link. Muto reminds it of the SR51. You can get the SR51 XM-L2 (bulk version, without filter, case and only one battery carrier (2x 18650 or 6x CR123A) - but you can buy the second for under $5, if you want both) for a great price at the moment: With the coupon code BLF $59,79 from Banggood. I think this is a much better buy as the M50, because the half price and you loose only a case. My Link - non aff-link. I put in the Bangood link, because it fits pretty well and the price is awesome.

Its a Crelant 7G5MT. I don’t know why they rebrand it with Ultrafire. Sad
Maybe Crelant is out of business.

Or maybe it’s just a good copy. I’d buy original instead simply because it’s cheaper. About FandyFire A9-T60 (it has XM-L, not XM-L2) – both TF and Ultrafire A9 are just copies of Tiablo A9.

FastTech really just post what info their distributor provides (including errors), though at least they make their own product photos. I would guess if they do not specifically say XM-L2 there is a chance XM-L could be sent. :~

I’m not sure if these have been posted, but FT has some cheap new 18650 lights like:

Gold/side switch:

http://www.fasttech.com/products/1/10007961/1700404-ultrafire-hy-a64-1-c...

There’s a black and gray one also.

These look like there mechanical side switchers (rather than electronic), so hopefully no parasitic drain.

K1TU2 1*Cree XM-L2 U2 5-Mode 600LM Cool White (beam shot looks more NW) LED Bike Light Euro plug charger. I like that it has a XM-L2, a Beam Diffuser is incl. and it comes with a 18650 battery box (without batteries - I think you need unprotected). Better a battery box, which can be filled with good batteries as a battery pack with unknown quality. I dislike the 5 mode. Price: $23,48. My link  - non aff-link

 

The next two are multifunction flashlights.
C3 Cigar Style 3-in-1 LED Flashlight & Mobile Power Bank & Battery Charger 1*18650 / Cree XP-E R3 LED / DC 5V/1A output / black (available in silver, too). The beamshot has a donut hole. The combination of red and black looks good (better as the silver version). It is made of aluminum, has a side switch and supported a battery length of 68mm. Price: $14,24. My link - non aff-link

You need music around you and a flashlight?
FreeMan X7 Water Resistant Speaker & LED Flashlight 1*18650 / microSD + 3.5mm line-in / FM radio. It supported micro SD up to 32GB, mp3 up to 320kbps has a FM radio. It has a Cree XP-E LED a 5 or 6 modes.

You will find more pictures and more specification there, too. Price: $34,82 (5% less, like every flashlight with BLF: $33,08). My link - non aff-link

Interesting homage to 5.11 Tactical. :~ A laser glove, so you can unwittingly damage several retinas at once.

The BD01 has a nice design.
There are also two other intresting products:
A blue LED drop-inUltraFire Cree XP-E B3 1-Mode 60LM 465nm Blue LED. $7,08 (5% less with BLF). Is this useful - I think for most people it looks only cool or maybe someone can use it for light painting. Some people wrote that blue light (I don't mean UV) is good for hunters (blood should look black under blue light and it is easier to notice on leaves, trees etc.). My link - non-aff link.


This looks also interesting. It is available as a 26650 XM-L2 with a 3 mode (high, low, strobe) and only 1,8A on high for $21,20. My link - non aff-link.
Edit: Have missed the difference sizes (between the LLJ-03 and 04) - first short look, I thought both were the same, only with different LED and driver. Sorry my fault and thank you for the tip.
If you want more power and change the driver, why don't you also change the LED and buy the cheaper XP-E version for $11,92 - a 14500 version and smaller as the 26650 (has the same reflector). Buy a 105C with 2,8A ($3,31) and a XM-L2, which you like for example XM-L2 T6 4D (4300-4500K) $5,24. Of course you need some thermal glue or paste and a little bit of time but you can get a great flashlight for only a few cents more as the ready XM-L2 product.

A lot smaller according to their listed dimensions.

The LLJ-01 is like a swiss army knife.

FastTech have these silicone 18650 sleeves to hold one cell, 1.13 USD each, various colours available. Not waterproof but will prevent shorting. It doesn’t state if protected cells will fit.

It annoys me that I’ve got error reports still pending as far back as 2nd December 2013, they just can’t be bothered to correct mistakes in descriptions.

FT listed a Niteize product and a few in the last days. In the mini tool thread some people like these and now after listed the third I post these here, too.

1. 2. 

3.

One flashlight with a similar size as the HD2010 and the Shadow SL3.
809 1*Cree XM-L T6 (picture shows a XM-L2) 3-Mode (high, low, strobe) 600-Lumen Cool White Rechargeable LED Flashlight grey / 1A output mobile power bank. The size is simlar to the Shadow SL3 or HD2010, which use a 26650 or 18650. If you use both the chance is high, that one of these will fit. Price: $25,99 (5% less with BLF).

The description says – “Battery type: Fixed”. Not sure that it uses 18650/26650 or that the battery is easily accessible/replaceable.

Authentic MNKE IMR26650 3.7V 4000mAh Rechargeable Li-Ion Battery (2-Pack) 35A continuous discharge. Price for a pair in a plastic box: $22,10 (with BLF $21). They are genuine MNKE cells - FT confirmed this. Some people in the fasttech forum wrote, that $22,10 for a pair isn't a bargain price in the US (the price in the US should only $1-2 higher). I don't know, if this is true or not, but here in Germany the price for good 26650 are much higher. The UK prices for good 26650 is also higher as someone wrote. Please don't discuss the price here.
