Cree zoom for under 5 bucks?

It says CREE in the title and in the description. Seems too good to be true, but Im thinking about taking a chance on it.  LINK

If it is a cree it would be P4 at best. Those are notoriously overdriven and die rather quick. Often there is not even a driver! The host quality is a joke, so it is heatsinking.

You can get the same light for ~4,2$ here: http://www.buyincoins.com/details/zoom-focus-3-mode-aaa-cree-led-flashlight-camping-light-product-2780.html after 15% discount code. Its like 95% chance that this does not have cree emitter... The quality (if its the same as c30) is so so, cooling can be a problem - anything above 0,8A can be problematic... But for the price its not a bad light.

I just ordered it from the ebay seller in my link.  I will update when it arrives.

 

Edit:  Buyincoins sent me a receipt after I checked out on ebay, so this must be the same thing as UDO posted above.  Now I am depressed I spent 70 cents more than I had too haha.

Probably a dropshipper. I've had that happen a few times and, as a bonus, discovered a few new retailers that way. Wink
