Can anyone confirm that the Unifire is regulated?

You mean the UinFire from fasttech?

Yes.
No I can’t say if it’s regulated or not. I just wondered if you saw a UNI-Fire version in addition to the U-IN-Fire model. but I guess you just typo’d the name. Actually Uni-Fire would have made more sense for a name than YOU_IN_FIRE! J)

I received my fasttech version of this light and I would not recommend it since it has next mode memory.
PyTech, is the one you got from fasttech the UINFIRE B68 3-Mode? Do you know if it’s regulated?

Also for the “Next mode memory” is it possible that it’s (the same as my Trustfire Z8) where it goes to the next mode unless it has been off for 3 minutes? (after 3 minutes it just re-sets starting on back high). IMO next mode memory is useless and silly if it times out after a few minutes.

My Uinfire arrived yesterday from FastTech. I’m disappointed with it compared to the single mode version I have – the beam has many artifacts and taking the lens off reveils a couple of dents in the metal surrounding the LED chip. Also when you switch it on it starts on high, switchoff and on and it goes to low, off and on to strobe, but no matter how long you leave it off it remembers what it was on previously and takes you to the next mode the next time you switch it on.

On the plus side it’s nice to have a low mode when using a 14500 cell as on high it is too bright for up close use.

My understanding is that all sk68 clones with 3 modes are “next mode memory”… Please prove me wrong!

Look at this http://wallbuys.com/Product/Ultrafire-CREE-XML-T6-3-Mode-200lm-Zoon-LED-FlashlightBlack-1xAA-14500—6682

Are they for reals???


This wouldn’t provide much better light on aa? Or would a XML on aa outperform previous clones?
