New single emitter 4x18650 light at DX:

 

Looks like a thrower version of APEX 5T6. Very interesting design.

Oh dear me! I am enhusiastic about this already.

Deeper head than the Apex for a deep yet wide reflector.

My wife is gonna kill me now. And I blame you _ the _ LOL!

Must mod, must mod, must mod mod mod mod!!

The head is only 70mm I think. The 86mm is probably at its widest => the handle.

put a side switch right under the leading edge of that handle, make it black and I’d pay much more than they’re asking 0:)

You’re probably right. There are couple of Ultrafire 1226’s on aliexpress and the description says: “Size(mm): 175(L)X70X65

Love the design, hate the color, switch replacement and tiny head. Make it 100 mm + black + sideswitch Smile

I sure wish the head was as wide as it looks like it should be.  At only 70mm it's only a tad wider than an HD2010.  So much potential with just a few changes!

@ pulsar13: Where is the electronic switch? I cannot see it.

And to the guys who wants a bigger head? So do I. But the cost would take it completely out of my league price vise. @ 50 it could be the best poor mans thrower ever when considering that it is 4p1s battery setup which means I can put older, more cycled cells in this light rather than also having to splurge on 4 new batteries as well.

We can't really tell for sure if it's 4S1P or 2S2P can we?  DX specs says 8.4v, but you can't trust that.

if 4p, would need to mod battery config or find a 3A+ boost driver. Aside from big money for a taskled driver, there is not such beast afaik.

From aliexpress I can see it is parallel battery config. 4P1S.

That (4p) with an electronic switch on the side… I’d buy it instantly and swap the driver.

I know what you mean, some of these sites make it darn difficult to figure out their photo links!  I've learned a few tricks recently.

I think you guys are right… that’s probably a normal clicky switch, which is reasonable since listed current rating is only 1.8A.

Unmodded, this will be a spectacularly underperforming light for the price. But of course – it’s the modding potential that hooks. Wonder who’ll cave in first.

You can probably count on it being the normal 5 mode driver with pseudo-direct drive on high, somewhere around 2.5A
