I got a pink slip in my mailbox ..So I went to the post office to pick up my new Roche F6.

Opened the package and there was no Roche f6 at all it Seems as if a company named Fasttech stole my roche  and replaced it with a Sunwayman V20C Y

 

Guess I'm still waiting on the F6..Any bets on whether the charging head arrives with the light ?

Today I finally received my F6 ordered on 14th of november. Great light, really love it. It easily takes protected NCR18650B´s indeed. Only banggood forgot to add my charger head, so I´ll just have to wait longer again for my whole order to be completed.

Glad to hear it will accept NRC 18650B ,adds a bit of safety to a phone charger

My F6 is dead now, first the flickering then it seems to have shorted out. Bottom spring blackened and some of the plastic on my battery burned. Waiting for answer from BG, think the return shipping will be too expensive but maybe a partial refund is possible without returning it.

And now I got an email saying they refunded me and I should check paypal in 48H
Responed to the email and contacted banggood here. Hope to get this solved and just get my head charger.

This is becoming one of the worst slowest order on banggood for me.

Can anyone confirm if there is room for a 8x7135 driver (Drjones, connected to the electronic switch) inside this light?

Can’t get mine apart! I’m going to take it to work, see if I can get into the head. I really need a DrJones driver in this light, it would make it almost perfect for me.

Got mine today, and no charger head either, even though the label on the plastic bag said "SKU104954 with charger head"

I like the design, quite compact and nice.

Heat transfer to the body is very good; there's no pill, the LED MCPCB sits on a shelf that's integral part of the body.

Measured 2.5A / 0.8A / 0.2A; quiescent current is only 1.3µA, quite nice.

I don't like th UI though: When off, a not too short press (about 1/3 s) is required to turn it on. When on, short presses switch through the modes (H/M/L), and a quite long press (a bit more than 1s) is required to turn it off. I haven't found strobe or SOS yet. There's a red indicator LED opposite to the switch for low battery indication. Also med and low have an ugly ~170Hz PWM. 

Unfortunately there's not enough space in the head to put a NANJG105C there, so modding with a better UI will be difficult.

Geez, I like this little light. I might end up designing a driver PCB for it.

Oh no! One of your drivers would make this light perfect, I was looking forward to fitting one.

I'm thinking of getting another one. Unfortunately the coupon has expired... I really think I'm going to make a driver for it.

Couple of things about this light, previously though no protected batteries would work but the Keeppower Panasonic 3100, 3400 and Xtar 2600 work, probably any battery with a Seiko protection circuit. Protected Banggood/Wallbuys/Fastteck Panasonic, Sanyo, and Samsung don’t work.

This is one of my favorite lights, the only thing I don’t like is the power button is too easy to push while carrying in a pocket. Was thinking about getting a stainless steel washer and gluing it around the power button for protection, any suggestions. Know I can unscrew the head a little to break contact but not really wanting to do that.

Same here.
I have protected 3400mAh panasonics recently bought from wallbuys and a set ordered a couple of months ago from fasttech. Both fit without any problem or trouble with tightening.

So i recieved this light i ordered today. Love the light, it has three modes, and very well built. but one problem is that i ordered it with the Charger head option, and never recieved the Charger head !
- Now im waiting for a response from them to send the missing part, or black-list Banggood off my future orders list.

Banggood really left a bad taste in my mouth. Look how many Roche f6’s they sold. I started this thread but never got one. Lol. 2 months now or something and no light . And they stiffed a bunch of others out of the charger head. They probably operate out of the back alleys of shenzen.

Finally received the light , originally ordered Nov. 27th,2013 . Ordered with a charger head , but as many others – charger head is missing .What is worse – the light does not work . Tried it with different Panasonics,Samsungs , LG – no go.At the beginning , maybe 7-8 times the light came “On “, very low – similar to Zebralight 0.2 lm . Stayed “On” for a few seconds , and then turned off by itself. Now does not even turn “On” any more.Otherwise – it is a beautiful light , both protected and unprotected seem to fit fine. Any advice ?
