Yes, There is a XM-L2 U3

Well, I ordered a little C8 off of Aliexpress, and it said it was an XM-L2 U3, well I got it today, and it is so marked on the opposite side of the Ultrafire Nameplate.

Was still uncertain, but I saw this:

So, there are some U3s out there..

Will, try my Ali tonight…

It's in the updated Cree calculator.

The low mode should be lower.

it seems to be a useful tool, but the fields won’t populate, there doesn’t seem to be a calculate button

"It is critical that there is a credible academic source for the growing and important discipline of Alternative Facts. This field of study will just keep winning, and we knew that all the best people would want to be on board. There is a real risk in the world today that people might be getting their information about science from actual scientists."

It works fine for me. It auto populates and recalculates.

The first column works ok for me, second one sometimes, third one is dead…. So it probably depends on browser settings.

I'll install my XM-L2 U2's Noctigon's asap.  U3's will come out the day after.

Good news ! But now I hesitate to buy one high-quality flashlight because Cree might come out with a U4 in 3 months and L3 serie next year. Big Smile
Also don’t trust unknow chinese vendors, its very hard to tell the difference between bins and obviously lying augment the sells.

If you think that from U2 to U3 is something huge than relax, it's the usual 7% difference. Secondly the first the green tints show up like 2S and and then 1C and 1B. For me those tints make the 7% mean zero. I think that CREE won't come with a new bin until the next 6 month at least.

I don’t think they’d even make a U4…

I’m guessing the XM-L3 will come out in 2015.

Correction: The reflector is Smooth.

Jenny Zeng replied:
“The reflector is the Smooth Aluminum reflector.”

(The Web page has not yet corrected.)

EDIT:
Now changed to:

“Reflector: Smooth Aluminum Reflector”

Haha, you can thanks me for that.

This is the light I request to be made for me, then I tell them it would interest many people. Silly

Excellent store, you can also ask for a deeper C8 reflector and 8×7135 LED Driver.

Thanks.

Is the C8 reflector deeper than the C12 reflector?
How do I ask for the C8 reflector and 8×7135 driver?

The version with 8×7135 driver is one of the other listings on their ‘store’ pages.

I don’t have both yet but it seems to be the same but maybe some versions are different. There is also many other flashlights with bigger and deeper reflector.
You can contact them by messenger or message only if you are a aliexpress member.
