2 L3 Illuminations L10s... What the @&%$!

Hey flashlight-friends,

Hope you all had a good Christmas (Christian or not). And here’s to a great New Year!

Now, down to business: I normally EDC a Zebralight SC52. But, it’s getting banged-up and gunked-up at work, so I wanted a work light that had good functionality yet wasn’t so pricey that I’d flip out over it getting thrashed. After searching the webs I got tipped off to the L3 Illuminations L10.

Seems just what I needed, so I bought 2 (1 for a belated Xmas gift) with the XP-G2 led. I ordered them from SBFlashlightes, and I have to say the shipping was phenomenal – Ordered Xmas night and got them today. 2 day process!

Anyway, I opened them both to test them and make sure everything was kosher (Jewish or not) before sending the one out as a gift. Lo and behold, the tints and beam shapes are very different. I tested them against the 52 ‘cause it has a cool white emitter and one closely matches, one does not!

Have pics but can’t upload – don’t understand the “image URL” thing. But suffice it to say the goofy one is VERY purplish and ill defined. Is this normal?

The “image URL” is to enter the direct address to an image hosted elsewhere (like imageshack). There are no images actually uploaded or stored on BLF.

my L10 probably has the finest tint and smooth beam of my (not so many) lights

great creamy stuff, love it

contact Jake at SBFlashlights I am sure he'll set this right for you
