Been wanting a c8 for a while now to mod so I just ordered one.
Hope it pulls 4A with the East-092.

"Whoa that's a bright light!" ... Yea I guess.

Mine does about 3.5 amps on a Tenergy 2400 protected and really kicks out some light. I think you will like it.

Couldn’t help myself, What a Price!

Now, Louis, Can we get some choices on tints and emitters?
Some other sites have starting offering these options and it seems to be well received.

Anyway, thanks for the killer deal.

I have been looking at this light for a few days. Couldn’t pass it up for this price. This will be my first xm-l2.

Hi all, regarding the East-092 driver. According to the specs at FastTech, the output current of the driver is 1900mA on high, and 5 volts. I don’t understand how it can be pulling 4 amps at the tail cap. I’m a newbee to the site, so your explanation is appreciated.

Hi and Welcome to BLF!

To answer your question, battery quality has everything to do with output achieved with this particular flashlight. The driver it uses (East-092) will run in what we call “Direct Drive” in that it is pretty much a direct signal path from the battery to the emitter or LED.
This is great if you are using decent batteries. As you spend time here you are going to learn a lot about batteries.
Anyway, the person responsible for the Specs given in the description is probably using either cheap batteries or the same battery to test lots of lights all day without recharging them to full power.

Either way, this light will pull good amperage if feed good amperage.
And you do not need to spend a fortune on a good battery.
These batteries are great for the money.

Now I can compare it to the ones I ordered a year ago. They were excellent.

I gave away my c8 a while back and didn’t have a good thrower in my collection. Now I will.
I haven’t bought any lights in a while and this broke the ice. Used $1.30 in bonus points too.
Thanks
My real passion is a good edc that uses 14500’s. To me that is just the right size for my pocket and hand.
If anyone has a titanium Eagletac that they would like to talk about I’d be happy to listen (read).
I just can’t afford one at the moment.

Ordered one - couldn't resist for that price.

louis huang -- can you verify the specs listed for this light having a true XM-L2 U3?

-- of course if you answer "Yes", I won't believe you but would be interested in some sort of proof, evidence or reason why you think it may be a true XM-L2 U3 binned emitter from CREE. We can all tell it's in the family of XM-L2's from the white background on the surface around the phosphor/silicon covered dome, so that means it could be a T6 or U2 (U3's are extremely limited of course).

Thanks!

I'm more interested if he replies to my U3 question Smile, doubt he will reply though. I'm just hoping it's a standard size C8 pill, standard C8 threads, etc. I'm thinking it should be, similar to the LightMalls C8's. I did buy a TMART C8 a while back and think it was all standard sizes, but that was with an SS bezel, different I'm sure from what they are selling now. If he does respond saying it's a confirmed U3, then that will be enough to encourage me to do some head to head testing against T6's and U2's.

+2 I have the east 092 driver in an HD2010 (looks like C8 on steroids) and it pulls 4 to 4.5 amps on High using a protected 26650 trust fire flame battery. A protected battery has a small computer circuit board on the bottom that protects it from over charge, over discharge & high current draw.

All codes used up - sounds like. They were enforcing 1 per ip address.

I got one with the discount code early today based on this thread. Should be very good for a $13 light.

Terms are rather confusing. I read: 1. expires tomorrow 2. One time order per ip 3. Can order up to 30 for the one time order — the deal is not limited to total 30 lights. Suggest typing in the discount code rather than copy and paste.

I have one at home, two more in transit and just ordered one more.
I got a 5A reading using a Sony US18650VTC3.

So glad you guys picked these up before I got back this evening. It was extremely difficult resisting this beastly light.

well, I read/understood it as: 30 lights total for the discount price (i.e. 30 uses of the coupon code), 1 light per person only.

When a co-worker tried buying one however, his order got rejected, saying only one piece allowed (something like that). So from that message, I could only assume they were checking on IP addresses because he was using a different TMART account, but the IP address is the same as the IP address I used (same company network, appears as one IP address externally). Later, someone else at work tried it, but by logging into their remote home PC, and got rejected saying all coupon codes are used up (something like that), so I assumed 30 orders were already made.

I knew these would go quick... Good deal and from the US warehouse.

5A is up there if you left it all stock with the thin LED wires, no copper wired springs. Not surprising you got it that high though - still aluminum star and those SONY 30A's are an incredible cell - on par, maybe better than the Sam 20R's. 5A's on an aluminum star though can be dangerous, but the SONY 30A's sure won't last too long at that high amp range.

Can you provide links to the best places to buy those batts? I’m going to give them a try.

I wanted to get in just to see what an East-092 driver can do. Will just have to wait for the next offer.

I haven’t run it too much. As soon as I saw the 5A reading, I said, I better get som Noctigons in there pronto.
