Anyone here have a trustfire sst-90

I just got my trustfire sst-90 and I was wondering why the body can come apart in sections if it only takes 3 18650s

can someone enlighten me Smile

probably because the same basic body is used for a number of different lights and thus is made to be versatile enough to handle them rather than purpose building a different body for each different light and driving inventory and tooling costs up.

I got this light about a month ago. Awesome light, IMO. 4Sevens just came out with his latest and greatest, the Maelstrom S18.  It's built around the SST-90 LED.  He wants $250.00 for it.

Did yours come with batteries? Are they charging? I bet you can't wait until dark.Laughing

That's a good idea to keep an eye on the voltage. I charged the included TF 2400 flames with the included charger and when the charger said the batteries were done, they all measured 4.25VDC. So I retired that charger. 

The threads aren't anodized and it seems like it might be easy to cross-thread the tubes if your aren't careful. Other than that I think the light is a beast. I am not sure I could design a better head thumper, if needed.

everything that can be unscrewed and everything looks nice and tight the only thing I didn't

unscrew is the front of the light.
