LOL, I'm not running *all* GBs here. This one is MrsDNF's baby.

[In fact we were preparing to have a Y3 GB, but manufacturer was out of stock and couldn't deliver soon enough -> MrsDNF & Ric were faster with their existing stock.. We can still arrange it after this GB if there's enough demand left.]

I would guess that it comes with three adapters, but I'll let MrsDNF or Ric answer. Smile

The text say OP but the pics show SMO - we don't know... Smile Should be SMO - never saw/heard of a Y3 with an OP. He's got a good share of copy/paste errors, typos, etc.

Questions to be answered are,

Is the reflector smooth or orange peal, it appears to be smooth in the pictures.

Are the 18650 adapters included.

It sounds like that these lights will not be shipped until the minimum amount has been ordered. If you have said you are getting a light but have not ordered I'd suggest to order it to get the official website order number up. My list is not complete. There is at this point in time eleven units ordered.

The led has been confirmed as being a XML-2 U2. 

I did hear about yours and others efforts _the_. I'm not sure what the answer is to this apart from a secret sub forum. It was due to happen. I thought for a moment you were coming on board to help. I need all that I can get.Smile

There’s a small pic of the reflector that looks like SMO. But then the hot spots in the beam shots seem fuzzy like that of OP hot spot. Hope it’s SMO.

Yikes, you are right bout those beamshots. My Y3's beamshots look nothing like that at all... Hhmm. Just checked my Y3 and the hot spot is tiny compared to the spill area -- looks nothing at all like thise shots.... Oh boy...

Maybe we all get individual light patterned lights? 

The question has been asked on the reflector. Ric wont get back to me when he first reads my questions if he does not know the answer. Thats my guess anyway and will get back to me when he finds out. He is a mystery man (girl?) of very few words.

They use the same beam shot photos for a lot of different lights, they're just stock photos. Remember, most of humanity isn't concerned with the finer points of beam artifacts, et al.

+1 agree - probably not the light in question in the pics, or the camera settings are so messed up, not a true representation. The Y3 has the classic thrower beam - better looking that the new HD2010's, tight perfectly round hot spot with a flowery shape aura around it well centered - pretty common for SMO's. Those HD2010's drive me nuts because the black centering pieces are too small for the reflector hole...

Simple answer to your centering problem.

Fixed. Kiss I love it even though it is driven on high under 3 amps.

Sure but can it throw? Across the yard maybe Smile. I'm thinking that pic is hiding a custom built extension tube on the back of that thing, knowing you Wink.

Without going into human nature, you may be more right. A few months back I admired a beam shot, but then some one pointed out its obvious fake. So l looked at other beam shots of different flash lights from the same seller and lo and behold several used the same beam shots — even when the flashlights are different types. Let’s hope that’s the case here. The two peeky shots of the reflector looks shiny/smooth without any ripples.

Order now. He's shipping them already - mine shipped w/tracking already. Lokos like he's got at least qty 50. Seems like he didn't wait for 20 ordered - fine by me Smile.

HKJ’s review http://budgetlightforum.com/node/32323:
“Very good capacity and good performance for a high capacity 26650 battery.”

Supersports600 on ebay has them at $29.95 for two.
Australia only though.

Thanks Suncoaster. I have seen checked them out already but I would rather use the protected ones.

http://www.keeppower.com.cn/products_detail.php?id=481

I have not come across anyone selling them.

We are up to fourteen ordered on the website. We need another six.

Glowing recommendation from Rusty Joe:

It gets my recommendation and is a great budget powerhouse alternative to the HD2010 and will out-throw nearly any stock budget light you might own (55,000-60,000 kcd maybe?). I love it.
