and got the message that the code wasn’t valid and the price didn’t change. And I cut and pasted the code from your earlier post.

Weird. But then you can use code bgfmc - which brings the price down to $3.39 for 1pc or $3.16/pc for 5pcs..

That would have been enough for me to get a “free” one for me at that price.

Gah, there’s so many interesting AA-powered flashlights available at quite good prices now! I’ve already ordered an olight i2 and xintd x3, but i’m tempted to buy klarus p1a and p2a, nitecore mt21 and sens aa as well.
I’m a bit hesitant since several of them doesn’t have the latest leds. And i’m not sure if they’re easily upgradeable.

So what are the principal differences between the two drivers for somebody who will just use this light stock from the factory?

About the same with different firmware, standard Nanjg without option for moonlight mode.
For firmware, there is this Nlite version.

Thanks! So do we know for sure which driver the BangGood version has? And if it is the Nanjg driver, it basically means no moonlight mode?

Xintd from BG uses a traditional nanjg 105c. Based on the description, its the one where you can hide strobe and sos.

Qlite is exclusive to intl-outdoor.

The nice features of the Qlite over a regular nanjg 105C are:

-No PWM whine.

-No visible PWM

-Better mode spacing (IMO)

-The ability to set it up with moonlight

-Low battery voltage cut off (makes it much safer to use unprotected cells)

IMO, Qlites are superior to the regular nanjg105C firmware. But the price on that X3 from BG. Its nice.. Smile

Maybe _the_ can negotiate a special coupon for it? ^^

Oh, and the Qlite also uses 8x380mA regulators= 3Amps on high

Regular nanjg 105C normally use 8x 350mA regulators= 2,8A (it could be using 380mA)

Qlite also  runs from low to high

 

not high to low

1st Star : 2% - 25% 100% (Default)

 

2nd Star : 5% - 30% - 100% - Strobe (10Hz) - Beacon (cycle: 2Hz blink, 4seconds light off)

 

3rd Star : 15% - 100%

4th Star : 20mA - 2% -25% -100%

 

 

I think these other lights start on high ........which I don't like

XinTD X3 is already very affordable ($31.72 for U2-1A with coupon blf) so they won't go any lower. [Tried hard. Didn't help. Sorry!]

Edit: Tried once more, might help, please wait..
Edit2: Helped a little. See below. Smile

Do you think this will make much of a difference in final output?

XinTD X3 U2-1A for $31.03 (with coupon bgf141)

ChibiM: It says XM-L2 in every place on that page, and Neal just confirmed me that all tints are XM-L2.

Just look at the XinTD pictures, there’re Simon Mao’s mark. Should be not bad, Convoy-XinTD X3 or XinTD-Convoy X3 Shocked

Side by side, barely, but without both to compare with, not at all. Smile

Hmm, my only reservation about buying the Xintd X3 is that the reviews mention that it doesn’t work with protected Li-Ions because of the longer length of the cells. I strongly prefer protected cells, so that’s kind of a downside.

3,04A-2,80A=0,24A extra.

In real life the difference is more like 0,15A extra based on what I have seen. (due to 350mA 7135s usually overperform, and the 380mA sometimes underperform. Qlite might also have a tad of PWM on high)

0,15A difference is close to nothing.. Its about 5% more current. Which probably is no more than 4% more light on high..


 Thanks for the coupon code _the_..  Tempting, tempting... Im not supposed to buy this light...

I have ordered the extendable baton, it is irresistible price.
I am not happy with SK68 clones I have received from BG. May be this time they will do good.

Agreed, there’s another “ANSI-chart” here, a bit easier to read the text. http://flashlightwiki.com/File:Ansi-white.jpg

For a description of those tints, basically, this is what I have found:

  • 7A = very warm
  • 5B = neutral, tending towards yellow
  • 3B = neutral, tending towards cool
  • 4C = neutral, tending towards red (this one is described as very pleasant by many)
  • 3C = standard “neutral” tint (not available for the Xintd for some reason, but probably the most common tint described as “neutral”)
  • 1A = standard “cool” tint (by far the most common tint on most flashlights)

In my experience 5B can often be redder than a 4C. 5B is certainly warmer, but the balance between red and yellow in each can vary.
