found this, looks interesting. hammer head light

Hi, I found this light and really liked the look of it Smile
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Aluminum-Alloy-2-CREE-T6-LEDs-2400LM-500M-18650-26650-Bright-Flashlight-Torch-/311260105094?pt=US_Flashlights&hash=item48788c4986

Not really sure what I will end up doing with it ? I see so many options with this light !
Fingers crossed it will not take long to turn up..

this is a clone of a maxtoch DX21, and is pretty common, also known as the LZZ-01

take a look at this thread for internals: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/31508

I have seen the clones for about $16 or $17 USD on ebay, keep looking for a better price.

I did one of those (for a guy here) note they have very VERY poor quality optic’s (both the cheap plastic reflector’s with low quality coating and very thin and soft plastic lenses).

Also note there isnt a suitable size glass replacement, I believe they take 30×1mm, the only 30mm one’s I could find were 2mm thick and could not be made to fit.

My suggestion is to stay with the original DX21 (even with it’s lack of a tail switch), you’ll be much happier. Also be aware the 2 beam’s dont come together, they stay their own individual beam’s. Most multi-emitter / multi-reflector light (be it individual reflector’s or multiple cup’s cut in one reflector) have the beam’s join together to appear as a single beam, this light does not do that, it’s pretty annoying, like you’re holding 2 light’s in the same hand. Also shadow’s are crazy because of it.
