It does look intriguing… I don’t get why they put charging ports on budget lights though.

26650, side switch, in the US… it says zoomable? hmm

The reflector looks like it is sunk around the substrate, so I guess it’s possible.

At $16.. I’m a slightly tempted.

Need to take note of the seller.

Single T6 combo selling at USD43 it should cost $15 the most.

I didn’t actually expect to see anything interesting in this opening thread but I was definitely WRONG.

Quite good looking and interesting for the price.

Thanks for the heads up OP!

I bought one yesterday.. but it’s from China, I was curious about this light..
but I’m sure the light is not going to be brighter than SRK
most likely LOW= 1 LED MID = 2 LEDs HIGH = 3 LEDs just like most bike light

The only way to do a great work is to love what you do.

+1. On the pictures are XP-E emmiters. The only question what is wrong – the description or the pictures.

Thanks, I ordered one.

Should be fun to see what I can do with it. I like the three separate heads. They usually give a very nice beam profile. Plus I don’t have that many single 26650 lights. I’m betting I can add copper stars, de-domed and do a resistor mod and have a fun and funky light for cheap.

There is nothing I like more than modding a cheap light.

I’m a junky, I mod lights so I can sell lights so I can buy more light to mod so I can sell lights to buy more lights to mod.

I ordered this last night BECAUSE it was listed as US shipping. Estimated arrival date Dec 31,2013
No today it is listed as “SHEN ZHEN, China”
NOW estimated arrival Wed. Jan. 8 and Sat. Jan. 18, WTF????
Effing pizzed is an understatement.

What can be done here?
The seller said USA Shipping and now changed it.
I do not have a screen grab to prove it, but Ebay surely can see when the auction was edited.
What is the proper course of action?

Thanks,
Keith

Tell them right away that you want to cancel the order. If they won’t then contact e-bay and paypal.

Now I just checked myebay and it shows shipped with a China tracking number.
They are getting a Negative, I do not fly for this crap.
I very rarely give a neg, but this deserves it so much.

Came in the mail today, very fast for China shipping, so they get off the hook:)
First and foremost, as I suspected, it is NOT a Zooomy.
Anyway, the reflectors are Much smaller than I thought they would be. I was envisioning 3 P60’s,……….ehhhhhhhhhhhh…Not!

The lens measures 15.85 mm inside the bezel, outside bezel reads 21.80 mm.
The head itself comes in at 49 mm, overall length is about 165. It will tailstand once you remove the lanyard

Amp draw stock on high was 2.25, after I braided the contact spring it jumped to 2.75 on high, 1.45 on Med and .50 on low. All preformed with a Sony 18650 charged at 4.18 volts.
Not bad for $15.99 shipped.
Doesn’t throw too shabby either, kinda surprised. Tint is bright white, has pwm on med and low.
Thin battery tube and not a lot of threads but they seem to hold well.
It has a blue led under the milky colored side switch that will flash after it is shut off or after you change battery. To shut off the finder beacon, simply hold down the button when in the off position until the switch glows blue and it will be out of beacon finder mode. No idea of current draw in that mode.

I did not have the courage to dis assemble the head, I started to tiwst a bezel and it looked like the emitter was going to spin with it so I stopped there.
Someone else can dissect this puppy.
Later,
Keith

Thanks for the report. I’m looking forward to getting mine to play with. I’ll take it all apart and do a quick review and let people know how mod-able it is.

I’m a junky, I mod lights so I can sell lights so I can buy more light to mod so I can sell lights to buy more lights to mod.

How about the emitters? Are they XML’s or XPE’s?

Sorry to miss that!
They are XPE.
Explains the throw I guess.
Modes are hi,med,low,fast strobe,sos,off.
All 3 leds run on all modes.
Thanks,

Keith

You have to cycle through the modes completely to turn it off, so It will always start on high.

got mine couple days ago.. it was kind of fast coming from China Big Smile
I was a little bit disappointed to find out it’s not XM-L T6 as advertised I was hoping a wider beam
so I play around with the head little bit and twisted to open.. a bit of advise here.. don’t open it unless you willing to solder it again Flat Stare
the LED is attached to each individual head, I kind of like the beacon mode.. it is easier to find in the dark Wink
I filed a complain with the seller regarding the LEDs and they offer me $4 refund in exchange with good rating
fair enough for me, they said they didn’t know the LEDs was XP-E.. their supplier send it with XM-L on the box
but since I got it for $12.. I can’t really complain about it, it’s definitely worth the money :bigsmile:
now..if I only can open the driver, I’m almost certain we could do resistor mod on this light Wink

Edit: Edit: Found this listing for $13.86 (9 hours remaining on ‘sale’).
