Wonder hoe hard it would be to make adapters for 26650 and 18650. Well I have 18650 to 26650 so I guess I would just need 26650 to 32650 and put them together.

This thing could run off everything AAA,AA,C,D,18650-32650 with the right spacers.

$59 is to me, actually a really good price for this.

Wow it’s under $60, definitely worth a buy for that price

I’m glad I’m not the only flashlight collector out there, I was beginning to think I was strange.

Where do we get a spacer so I can use my 26560's in it? I guess I can use two O rings.

1” (internal) diameter PVC pipe should be a nearly perfect fit.

Like the cell versatility. 1xD is unique. But AA carrier does look weak. With the X3 carrier this would be pretty sweet.

Wallbuys is more than likely not an authorized dealer since the price is so low.

This sometimes is an issue if there is a warranty claim. I have had companies not honor the warranty for an item because I didn't  purchased the item from an authorized dealer. Claimed the item was counterfeit.

yeah that crossed my mind too. theres been quite a bit of that type of thing going on. not sure I care about warranty so much, but the business practices sort of make me feel less eager to give them my money. might just go with HKE. not sure yet. might just get a xinTD X3 and skip this one… cant decide…

I have both on the way . The X3 will not fit any protected batteries, from what I understand. Check the thread. 

 

Never mind saw your post.

yeah thanks for the heads up.

I started out all about protected cells, but now I have as many unprotected. if most of your lights have low voltage protection it shouldn’t be much of a concern. just use common sense.

the unprotected green panasonics have been great for me. panasonic PDs and samsung 20Rs are great for high amp applications. I still like AW IMRs as well. if you are a little hesitant to go unprotected IMR can be a good compromise.

That’s nasty, I wouldnt buy a product from a company who behaved like that ever again.

Authorized sales and warranty coverage are typically tied. If not, how would mfrs know the items in circulation are legit? They can’t track and control quality of items that are sold on an unauthorized basis (not trackable). This is not some big travesty to the consumer. It’s pretty standard and makes perfect sense if you think it through.

We have all seen fakes and clones of popular lights (even clones of clones!). It is in the best interest of the mfr AND the consumer to have authorized dealer networks. It is the only way mfrs can maintain control on the items in circulation.

Everyone loves to demonize mfrs and vendors as some kind of greedy assholes, but there are reasons these practices exist. More often than not the primary goal is maintaining a quality product for us – the consumer.

I haven’t had any problems with Wallbuys aside from not liking there microsecond events, so I placed an order for one. I want a 1D cell light and I hope more companies start making them.

Good to know thanks.

I agree, hope more 1D models follow.

Got my SD10 today. The lumen rating seems accurate, nice in bright on a D cell about 200. AA battery carrier is cheap and plastic. The X3 battery carrier will work. The front contact is fine but the rear negative contact is spring on spring so that might have to be modified to keep them from entanglement. 

Oh I took a protected 26650, wrapped a length of para cord around about four times and it fit fine ,no rattle.

I have it in this holster:

It fits very well but the belt attachment is a little poor!

Thanks for the feedback. I got one on the way. Smile

Overall, the SD10 sounds about like we expected. Pretty solid. Shame about the AA holder. Hope Hank sells the X3 one seperate.

I take it the light did not come with a holster? Any accessories included?

A pic beside an EA4 would be great Wink
