I like the option to remove the extender tube for single 26650 operation, being this doesn’t have a huge head it would be very compact in that form.

I also saw it here:
http://www.easylightbuy.com/palight-d3×-3xcree-xml-u2-led-6-modes-2680l...
And best price here:
http://www.aliexpress.com/item/dALIGHT-D3×-3xCREE-XM-L-U2-LED-6-Modes-2680-Lumen-Flashlight/824231091.html

I submitted a product request for it to fasttech.

A different PALIGHT was reviewed by JohnnyMac: the ““JohnnyMac approved” PALIGHT XHM-900LS U2
It appears PALIGHT is a decent quality brand. (thanks JM for another excellent review)

It's available at Lightscastle too for quite a bit less.  They were a favored vendor here for a little while before Fasttech stole all their thunder.

The low mode should be lower.

Oh yeah, I’m liking that a lot.  A side clicky would be better


Yeah I know, like this one:

Another really nice looking 26650 light I’m interested in, too bad it doesn’t have the triple emitters!

Actually it’s available for a little bit less than Lightscastle from AliExpress (Link was posted in my OP)

Don’t buy or link to Easy (HARD!!!) Light Buy as they are ripoff artists.

I can’t believe nobody has this light yet. I really like the design, but I just know the driver is gonna be one of those sucky designs that force you to cycle through the obnoxious blinky modes. And there are not a lot of choices out there for a 2 cell, 3 LED driver without the blinky modes.

Spoke with a local dealer in Vietnam regarding this light, he said it wasn’t good and discontinued it, although getting constructive feedback is near impossible due to the language barrier. It appears to be a C8 sized head with 3 emitters, judging by how shallow the reflector walls are in the middle I’d say the light would put out very poor throw with a large spill beam, probably the same kind of beam the 3 emitter bike lights out there put out. So perhaps a good bike light rather than a flashlight…

You bring up a good point. I like floody lights but that funky reflector is gonna have an ugly shaped hotspot. I don’t think it will be as good as my Fandyfire G36, with it’s perfectly round, wide beam.

Your username takes me back to junior high. I had a “Who killed JR” t-shirt :bigsmile:

Funny thing is, I’m no where near being a Dallas fan. I had to accept my nickname JR through submission thanks to my friends who refused to accept my name was anything but JR, not helped by the fact my initials are JR and apparently I look like JR. He’s obviously a very handsome dude. Wink

Found a beamshot of the D3X on Aliexpress. It’s real ugly.

If this is like the smaller Palight, then the modes such since it starts on High and Turbo is between strobe and SOS. Not exactly a very useful configuration.

Yeah.. and the fact that the 6-mode Palight I have has no mode memory. Most of the time I just use it on high, since it always starts on high Silly

Lights out! That's when things get interesting...
