Nitecore tm26 for $130, real deal or fraud?

So I stumbled across this seller on eBay, he has great prices on all the flashlight, but seems like he just started selling lights, his feedbacks seem to be ok with the other item he’s selling ( clothes, etc) there was 10 last night but its about to sold out, I really want to order one but I’m afraid it’s gonna waste time to get money back if its a fraud. What you think? Too good to be true?

WAY too good to be true.

He has some other flashlights that are priced just a bit too low vs competitors everywhere else.

Nitecore EA4 for $40... or the Nage 5t6.

Maybe it's possible, but at this point I don't see the value in buying the tm26, not with xmlu2 emmiters.  Grab the BS terminator from illumination supply... under $100, you'll have it days, and has similar performance. (More throw, less flood.)

One thing to note about the BS terminator, the PWM is pretty low on the lower modes. I found it annoying enough to not want the light.

If I was motivated enough though, I would have replaced the board with a DrJones driver running some slave boards. You can not only get rid of the low PWM but get some amazing UI. Throw in some copper bonded XML-2s in there and you have a super nice light.

I don't know why, but PWM really doesn't bother me all that much.  Not sure I'll mod mine, or sell it, but modding it would make for a super light.

Btw more are now listed.  I'm really sceptical of the slow shipping, given the $30 price tag for shipping.

Thank goodness PP has your back.

That seller has some unreal prices.  The tm26 price almost makes me want to spend money on another Nitecore product.  I may not be able to resist if one particular light is posted, and given the other lights sold right now, it'll probably be added.

The low mode should be lower.

I got a killer deal on eBay from a similar seller for a Fenix TK70 and posted a review:
