I have no problem taking any one of them.
It would be a plus if the copper pill fit but not a deal breaker.

Might take more then one depending on price.

Mostly positive results stated by members with the tangsfire. Only a few of us have received a weaker version of the tangsfire hd2010. Still worth it even with a sub-4A drive.

Tangsfire sounds good to me. It’s not like I won’t be modding it anyway. Wink

I’m confidant that my copper pills don’t fit in that one. :~

Well, here's what is going to happen, at least I am pretty sure. Well, that's what it sounds like anyhow.  Tmart is going to send me one of each.

Fandyfire  SKU: 88013993
No Name SKU: 88007126
Tangsfire SKU: 88008313

That way I can do a comparison review and then decide on one for the group buy.

Yep, it takes longer, but it does make sense. It is good to be able to look each one over, check fit and finish, try them out for Copper pills, test amp draws, modes and then pick the best of the bunch for the GB.

 

Anyhow, I will keep everyone posted as to when the lights are coming and I will do the comparison review as soon as they do.

PLUS, the losing lights will become giveaways.

TMart sure stepped up to make this happen which shows what kind of business they run.
This may just turn into a HUGH group buy with having all the results for buyers to review.

Thanks for your time and work on this “Epic” group buy!!!!!!!

Awesome effort from all involved it seems. Thanks OL for making it happen.

Now for a driver, whatever that is, and some other bits probably.

Your pills not fitting would be a deal breaker for me, unless we could get a press fit copper slug. But I think it’s a moot point as neither of the lights being sent to OL is grey. I’m still in either color.

I ordered mine at 11/29/2013, probably from a different batch.

Not sure what they’re sending out these days…

Big Smile Good luck on that. Your best magic wand will have to have the dust cleaned of it I say in jest.
This is my official entry for winning one of the three lights being sent out. Thanks.

OL Thanks for the GB + Good Luck. The problem is Tmart may not have 100% Control over Build Quality + Performance, or will they be CK + Testing every Light?

I have the gray SKU: 88007127 on 12/21/13 from the US warehouse and it’s the larger pill.
The threads looked the same to me, what do you think??????

No. Manufacturers make there own size threads up for I assume to match whatever material they have.

Well, samples are definitely on the way, but it will be the "normal" shipping, so this will all come to a halt for a couple weeks or more, till they come in. At least I can compare build quality and do measurements. It's a base to start with and if all the lights can come from one run, then they should be a little more consistent.

They may be 0.9mm but I couldn’t get a precise measurement.

If there’s enough interest, a second HD2010 copper pill run may be viable. Thanks OL for your efforts.

I think this is by far the best way of figuring out which light will be the best to buy.
Other than taking a little time all questions will be answered once they arrive.

Thanks for all you time and effort in trying to make this Group Buy work.
