what’s wrong with the battery carrier?
the serial AA from gearbest?

(besides that sometimes the + and – signs are on the wrong side ;))

PLEASE NOTE
i do not work in "reviews, deals and codes" for the time being
maybe M4D M4X will return one day, but until then:

THANK YOU FOR YEARS OF YOUR SUPPORT AND FRIENDLY CONTACTS!

Is the XinTD X3 made by Convoy?
Are we talking about the light first sold by intl outdoor?

afair:

the tailcap has no spring – there goes the spring of the carrier.

the flat copper part touches the spring on the driver side.

It has older emitter and less throw. It’s also smaller.

If you dont want to wait for simon to add it then you could use the link above at GB. Id say wait for for simon though since shipping would probably be better. GB ships stuff fast but the carriers are either fast or painfully slow. Not sure why they never can get consistent times. Ive waited 4 days for quickest and like 3 months for the longest

I just got my X3 yesterday which I placed the order on GearBest on Oct. 10th. It’s been a long wait but overall I really like the light. Feels well built and looks great. I’m going to compare it to my Nitecore P25 when it gets dark but based of wall reflection, it has a more focused hotspot so I’m hoping that it will throw just as good as it if not better. It also has a whiter white tint to it vs the P25 has a hint of blue. I would definitely recommend this light to other based off what they’re looking for. Thank you Convoy-Flashlight for a great product.

The problem could be customs. When I am outside of the US, some shipments seem to get lost coming to me or being sent back stateside. I have found that some packages just get held or “bonded” by customs for inspection, duty, documentation, or suspicious contents.

The package will be held at the air or sea port (yes, I have shipped a few 40 foot containers) but tracking will say that it hasn’t arrived because it doesn’t count as being in the destination country until it clears customs. Same holds true for people travelling internationally. What was that Tom Hanks movie called?

So I wanted to add to my previous comment about the X3. So this is a direct comparison to the Nitecore P25. Now that I’ve taken it outside, it throws noticeably farther than the P25. Not that it’s a drastic difference but you can still tell to which the P25 is rated for 283 meters so I’d say the X3 is somewhere just over 300m. Also, the modes on the X3, the low is very similar to the 50 lumen mode on the P25 along with the medium mode being a bit dimmer than the 550 mode.
