What I had delivered last night….
The Lightmalls Ultrafire C8 XM-L U3 & a Solarforce L2

My initial impression.. While the Lightmalls C8 is brighter than the XinTD V3. The build quality just isn’t there. The UF also has a secondary ring around the outside of the beam. As Si would say… HEY! , you get what you pay for Jack! Nice light for the money though. Highly recommend this to someone looking for a good C8.. Dinners ready post some beamshots tonight.

Is the Xintd long for a C8? Or is the LightMalls C8 shorter than the average C8?

Definitely looks it next to the L2. I haven’t bought any C8s yet so that surprised me.

I thought an xintd c8 was in the 30 – 40k range? I could be wrong there though as an a60 should be 50 – 60k….

STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU SHOP ELSEWHERE!!!
MISLEADING ADVERTISING, ARROGANT AND RUDE CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!
ALL OVER $5 WORTH OF BATTERIES!!!

I ordered 2 Boruit headlamps from lightmalls.ca on 1/5/21

With a website that ends with “.ca” one would think it was a Canadian site, not so.( They are now lightmalls.com, they dropped their “.ca” website)
Only after ordering was it revealed they were being shipped from Shenzhen, Guangdong province China That, was misdirection #1
Package finally arrived 1 month later on 2/5/21

Both packages had crushed corners, so i carefully opened and discovered no damage to product However, this is where the trouble started 1 of the headlamps arrived without batteries, so i rechecked the ad. It stated “2*18650 battery”. According to their customer service, this means it TAKES 2*18650 batteries and those DO NOT come with the purchase.BTW these are 3.7v rechargeable batteries… Not something readily available in Canada When questioned regarding their “misleading” advertising their customer service rep claimed i threatened them ( which i did not, i Only stated that my reviews of their business would reflect the transaction appropriately), they had “ dealt with people like you” before and did not “accept” my threats Several emails later it was agreed they would send me 2 batteries, however, it was Chinese New Year and all shipping was closed and they would address this when they came back They “ addressed” it all right The ads now state “Does not include batteries” which was not stated at the time of the transaction I have been told i can order new batteries from their store OR they would ship me batteries with my next order
A wise old man once said to me “ water…is at once, the most yeilding of elements…yet the mightiest of eroding forces” By selling us cheap and inferior products, refusing to stand behind their misleading business practises ( BTW, Paypal has no recourse for Chinese products)… We are slowly having our Canadian standards of business eroded away

Do a quick search for “lightmalls.ca reviews” and see for yourself.
BUY CANADIAN!!
BUY NORTH AMERICAN!!

PURCHASE FROM LIGHTMALLS.COM AT YOUR OWN RISK!!
