Chinese Stainless Steel version of a Maglite with Cree?

Look at this!

 

 

Pretty cool for $67, you could spend a lot more modding an aluminum Maglite

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

I think its awesome.  Not quite as cool as an XM-L Mag but I think it's killer good looking.

Which is part of the charm!

 

I EDC a particular one of my small torches becasue its heavier, not practical for carry, but it just feels soo solid!

A lot of quite convincing LED Lenser clones have poped up recently, I wonder if they are being made by the same factory that makes the realy ones.

Almost certainly they are.

 

One shift for the "official" production. Two others for the ones that don't get the brand name.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

Which is why you will soon see the much coveted "SolarFoys" light, as well as the soon-to-be-released "LewisFire" P60 clone. Maybe even an "UltraDon" coming in the future...

Doesn't seem to far from reality. I was looking at "Angelfire" and "Spiderfire" lights on ebay, looks like they are just Ultrafire lights with the name stamp changed.

And recently I've noticed they only have to change one side of the name stamp, they leave the other one that says "CREE" alone.

Ooh while we're off topic, When you look at the Utrafire logo just above it there is HWA (some sort of squiggle)WYS...does anyone have any idea what that is?

 

*On topic-ish*

I really do like the finish on the silver LED Lensers, their kind of silky smooth in a really nice way.

DX sells it for @ $10 less

http://www.dealextreme.com/p/pop-lite-p73-cree-q5-wc-160-lumen-optical-lens-led-flashlight-3-c-39462

This sucker sure is a thumper, too! 10.65" long and 2 lbs of stainless steel. It really would feel good in the hand! Way too much money for what it is, IMHO.

It also reminds me of a giant version of the Romisen RC-A6

http://www.dealextreme.com/p/romisen-rc-a6-cree-q5-wc-130-lumen-led-flashlight-grey-2-aaa-16845

Which, in turn, reminds me of a "personal" vibrator.
