Are you a drop-shipper, or do you actually lay hands on the articles so you can describe/photograph details?
(Either is fine, it makes a difference what kind of questions you can answer)

Hi guys, sure, it is a new business ventrure for me, I am the boss, and I am the CS, hahahahah. I couldn’t creat my own website now, that’s why I choose to run one shop in DHgate platform, in future I will also want to run another in Aliexpress. About Paypal, because the DHgate doesn’t support it, so that’s the reason.
I will try my best to provide my woderful products and service, I will do the business for long time, I need help and support from all you guys. If one new shop starts business in China, we Chinese say:” Qing Duo Duo Guan Zhao!”, means my new business needs your more help and more care.

So, Qing Duo Duo Guan Zhao Smile

The ‘pill’ is the part the LED emitter and MPCB are sitting on.

Its likely to be an integrated portion of the head, an aluminium shelf if it conforms to the design norm. The pic on the left, it will be behind that spring and driver. From the front of hte head, it will be under the reflector and MPCB.

Im going to create a DHGate account and buy one of the A6s, and have it sent to someone who can dismantle it properly and review it. Then they can do what they like with it.

Who wants it? You have to be good at reviews, and technical in approach, and honest about it, Id say its not desirable to be friendly in your review just honest about the quality and performance, its a review.

Apparently Im not going to make a purchase via DHGate. I just tried, created my account, then went to use the BPay method of money transfer, and I get errors re: reference numbers. Im not happy with the other payment options DHGate offers.

I just made an account and it looks like you can pay DHgate with Paypal and they even have a Paypal dispute link on your account page. The sign up process is lengthy but it’ll get you there.

BPay is a banking transfer system, (Bill Pay). Businesses have a BPay number, and you get a reference number, generally its your account number for say Electricity or Phone etc. Then you make the payment via your bank account or at Post Offices etc. No-one but your bank sees your account details. Bpay sees the BPay biller code (the unique identifier of the business youre paying) and youre reference number (your unique identifier) and a dollar amount.

Here is a screenshot of the tour. I have not linked my paypal because I am not ready to buy right now.

Nice answer Ejected Filament! Are you a teacher in the physical world? Your answer is just so clear and well organized. Nice.

I wonder why the disparity of the two, one showing PP option and yours clearly not offering the choice. That is frustrating.

Regarding the compliment, sure you are welcome. It is however more closely related to envy as my mind is scattered and a bee hive of rambling thoughts clamoring for attention. So when I read someone else’s posts and they are clear and concise I find myself musing over the idea of being able to do the same thing myself- that is without making a huge effort for clarity, then re writing.

I just noted the evidence of flashaholism in the picture I posted! 8 tabs open and related to flashlights. Heck 2 were BLF threads.

It’s so sad about the error.And the review should be from third party, it will be fair and honest, that’s why I am willing decend the price for review, even I will loose some money

It is odd that PP is not offered, its not like we dont use it or that we have limited access to it. Its frustrating that even though they have an alternative for me, I still cant use that either. Hopefully we can find a solution to that.

I think most peoples heads are scattered, thoughts popping in and out, sometimes faster than we can ‘collate’ them. Youre not alone on having to revise to get coherent posts, I generally have to revise my posts too and often i have to edit multiple times. Although its usually the language I use, I tend to say what I think directly (shoot from the hip) and sometimes that can be abrasive, despite not being intentional. So much is lost with simple text. I approach forums like conversations, speech errors such as grammar and stumbles included, but sometimes I try to actually type academically if that makes sense, an old habit from uni. Often its a mix of both.

I have 143 tabs open right now, in multiple tab groups. I of mine was your MT-G2 S3 thread. Im thinking i might use the Supfire A6 for a similar build, if I can pull it off.

It might be working this time, I have a different reference number and this one looks right. May be Im not used to the site and was doing something wrong.

Edit: Seems it was my mistake, its working as expected now.

You have one already, and another one on the way?

I was looking to send one to someone free, I like this style myself and Supfire have made some moddable stuff already so thought it was worth a punt.

Based on your initial impressions, do I want one?

It is of similar quality as the Convoys and Eagle Eye's, but this model is a bit different, so if you like the style: yes you want one. The finish is great, everything fits well and comes apart easily, there's no unpleasant surprises like hollow pills and such, there's a good heat path from led to pill to body, the body has enough meat in the right places that the heat can spread well, without the light having a fat head the reflector throws noticably better than the tube style lights, with a distinct hotspot, the switch is not too tiny, the driver is 17mm (a familiar one, same as in the Eagle Eye flashlights: high PWM, good mode spacing), stock the output of the XM-L is 600 lumens.

I'd say it has everything to easily make a fine pocket rocket of it, and that is my plan with one of them Smile

I will post a short picture-review tonight (have to go coffee-drinking around the corner with the family now -life is tough-)

Interesting. Seems like so far the SupFire brand has had a good level, consistent quality, and is typically a nice platform for modding. I've seen or heard nothing of any degrading of quality or consistency, and they've been around for a while. Impressions below:

The C8 T6:

  • head style and basic size appears to match up well to the SupFire L6, and the L6 has a true standard C8 pill, though with a raised top. I'm thinking the C8 T6 will have the same pill as the L6, not sure though, but if it does, can be replaced with a brass one like I did with the L6 (Post #1: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/30623)
  • typical SupFire styling - smooth knurling, decent finish (not outstanding)
  • a shame it's still an XML
  • simple typical 5 mode (ugh) but should have a good mode memory like the L6

The A6:

  • looks like a nice quality 18650 EDC
  • I'd go by djozz's recommendation for sure - seems to be typical SupFire quality - nothing really special or outstanding, but solid value, quality parts and build, nice and moddable

SupFire F3-L2:

  • 18650 EDC type zoomie here: dhgate.com F3-L2
  • looks like same SupFire quality
  • nice it comes with an XM-L2
  • hoping nice and moddable, but really should be, like the other SupFire's

I have a preference for SS bezels and tails, and these SupFire's lack that, unlike the M6 - the only issue I know of lacking with these.

I'm ordering one of each for now!

> they are the brass poles

So from the picture it’s an aluminum pill — the silvery metal part that has threads and screws into the head — but I don’t see the two dimples (like you can see in the C8 picture) so how does it unscrew?

Here are pictures of pills: http://www.dereelight.com/pills.htm
