26650 Light with 90° Rotatable Head Spotted on Ebay

I just happened to spot this 26650 light on Ebay which touts a 90° rotatable head.  I didn't see anything about a magnet in the base which would make it really useful.  $15.99 w/free shipping.  Anyone want to get it, try it, and report back?

I think it may have a T6 in it? Smile The clip looks a bit weak/strange…I doubt it is strong enough for a 26650 light.Have you ordered one yet?-Rick

Ha!  Yeah I thought the clip on a 26650 light was a bit strange.  And yes the advertisement of being "T6" was a bit over the top!  (I suspect marketing a "U3" wouldn't be as successful on Ebay to the casual buyers.)  I am wondering how well it tail stands with the head rotated.  If it doesn't tailstand well, doesn't have a magnet in the tailcap, and the clip isn't sturdy enough to hold it somewhere then what good is the light?!!!  I'm not getting this one, but I know others like angle lights and this one is unique in two ways (rotatable and 26650).  I have an eye on a Keygos M10 clone right now.  My light spending budget is cut down for awhile Sad .

Ah, yes!  I saw the camo one on Ebay too.  Never saw that thread either (that I remember).  So it doesn't sound so great. 

Is there a magnet in the tail (guess not)?  Does it tailstand when rotated?  Is the clip sturdy enough to support the light?

Ya, mine too!I kind of went overboard with the TN31, BS Terminator, and the EA8.I’m getting back into EDC lights now, just got the Xeno E03 XML2.The tint of the T63C in this light is great!Have a good one Garry, finally getting warm again!-Rick

if you have a doubt then skip it and get keygos M10 clone, it’s an UltraFire.. cheaper than keygos M10 and have slightly longer reflector than M10a and it put out a nice output too.
i got it from poozoo and very fast shipping too ( 10 days including weekend)
i liked it so much , i decided to order another one :bigsmile:

sorry didn’t see that question, i do have another keygos M10a, but i already sent it to “Dr light” Tom E to be modified with 4 Amp driver and U3.. so it is brighter than ultrafire keygos clone.. however.. here’s some pics

UltraFire ( keygos clone is on the left) Keygos M10a is on the right

Reflector comparison: C8 on the left Kegos M10a is in the middle and Ultrafire ( keygos clone ) is on the right

Thanks for those images!  So it looks like I may wish to stick with the original M10 for a floodier beam.

No magnet. Tailstands, but very wobbly. Clip is quite ok, not great.

I have the camo thingy and I got it to tailstand by swapping the switch boot. Once that’s fixed, it stands just fine.
I also tried to improve the terrible heatsinking, but I’m too embarrassed to describe it. Short answer; it didn’t work, so I’m trying something else.
I did swap the lens for a standard glass one I had here. Much better. The one it came with is not even clear plastic.
I’d get that black one if I didn’t already have this. I will probably jump for a decent 18650 or 14500 model someday. A little more portable than this one, which will probably end up in the truck.

Welcome the night.
