KINFIRE comes with 2 O-rings. myLED did claim that they have “thousands” of order for this deal. Sadly, do not expect all of the clones are of the same batch and grade.

My order has arrived!

Mine came in a plain box though & no branding on light!
My other SK68 clone has two o-rings, one by the front and the other by the tail cap.
O-ring by the front is “missing” on this one.
All in all, it is still a pretty good deal

Got mine.  Got the good box, but it was pretty beat up and tore open along the whole seam.  Light seems unharmed and of better than average quality.  Focused image is pretty big, but none of the stock lenses out there satisfy me in that regard.   Thank you Ezarc for posting this deal alert. Smile

Mine came in today.

Man, I hate next-mode "memory".   J)

I would love a Sipik SK68 clone with proper memory and these modes:  High > Med > Low.

(I don't think that'll ever happen, but a raccoon can dream, can't he?)

It’s been quite a while since the pencil-memory-reset-mod-technology was invented in BLF.

Well, you don’t get your HML but still, HL with skip strobe is not bad at all. Especially for ultra budgets.

No e-mail, no record of me registering on their site and yet here it is!
White box, o-ring, grease, green rings, slight over focus when zooming.
Very bright little light (subjective) with the best looking clip (strong) I have in my collection and no scratches.
The slid is a little too easy to move. Any ideas on how to add friction? Heavy grease?

All in All a well spent $2.18. Still surprised how bright!

Open it up, take out the little metal ring, pop in a rubber gasket from lowes/home depot that will fit in the groove, the metal ring really just doesn't cut it on the friction for the zoom, then, make sure you put some NOALOX on the threads and o-ring and re-assemble..smooth as glass after that

I payed Jan 11 by PayPal.

Contacted them and they said mine shipped Jan 23.

My PayPal protection is at the 42 day mark today.

Haven't received light.

They also said there was NO tracking.

Received mine today...Poor packaging...Flimsy white cardboard. No protective plastic (like fasttech or other dealers) Even the envelope was plain paper.Ok, the envelope was somewhat protective. It seems a bit dim compared to the other 3 sk68 clones I had. It has 1-2 rings when zoomed out unlike other clones. The next memory mode suxs. The zoom in (for throw) is not totally focused. It lacks the little bit more play to be totally focused. The tint is horrid. Well, its the only one with this slightly blueish annoying tint. Is it a good purchase for $2.18? Taking no other factors into consideration, yes. Is is a good purchase when you think about the fastech $5.20 clone one? Definetely no.

Received FINALLY today.   Mehhhhhhhh... white box...no branding on light.

Dimmest 68 clone I've ever had on 14500 or AA.Yell   This was originally billed as Q5. I have my doubts or it may be a crappy driver.

Would not purchase more even at this sale price, unless I didn't have any.

I keep a dozen or so rotating to give away to friends etc..  But I'd rather give a brighter example.

Just passable for the price IMO. 

Had it been brighter, I wouldn't complain.

Thats not true .......and I have plenty of olight 4/7s,fenix,zebralight and Nitecore boxes over here to prove it .

Received mine earlier in the week. Came in the thick yellow box originally meant for a 501B. It is three mode, with about the same quality as other good SK68’s I’ve owned. Has the dated-but-still-useful-in-this-host XR-E emitter. Didn’t try a 14500, works fine on NiMH.
Replaced the metal zoom grinder ring with a lubed O-ring, removed next-mode memory, and put black Sharpie on the metal/plastic emitter retainers (cuts down on rings in the beam).
Otherwise left it as-is, will be mine until I give it away.

Welcome the night.

thanks….

I tried the pencil line over the caps trick but couldn’t get rid of the next mode memory. My driver has two caps. I tried light light lines, heavy lines, each cap individualy and both caps together. Anyone able to get rid of next mode memory?
