Warsun CT9T for $14.99

Hard to beat this for $15. Well made, side switch and tail switch, stainless bezel, nice machining. Don’t think you will find a better light for the price. Sale ends in 4 days.

…I don’t have a Warsun yet. And by the time I get it I’ll have a great Happy St. Patrick’s Day gift!
Looks like an interesting light.

There was a thread where someone was working with Warsun to make a BLF Edition light. That’s dead in the water I think.

Warsun has much better quality than generic C8. If anyone has any good mod idea for side switch driver, please remember to share with the rest of us.

Thanks Ronin42, sale ends in 4 days, not 4 hours like I originally posted. I bought one of these a few months back and it is a very well made light, I would say the best light you will find for $15. I bought 3 and the price went down to $14.49 each.

Thanks Southland, have you used this to charge a phone/tablet? I pulled up Chloe's review of this and it seems the battery charging is worthless.

Super deal. Unfortunately ui is not for me…. Even at this low price. I wish you can turn on/off with side switch and turbo was not hidden.

The power plug is just directly connected to the battery; to charge the battery in the light you'd need a special charger with Li-ion charging circuit; and to use it to charge your phone would requite a special cable with some step-up converter electronics, too. Neither is included in this offer.

Also note that the light has quite some sharp and uncomfortable edges. And in mine 'turbo' is 100% on, while 'high' is about 90% PWM and thus just a tad less bright. Also, if I remember correctly, the button doesn't light up green when the battery is full, only red when empty.

Thanks for clarifying Dr. Jones, so there are issues with most of the bells and whistles on this light.It sounds like a mod is in order for the Warsun, maybe new guppy drive with side switch firmware?

Yes, having that light at home (got it defective for a few bucks, tact switch was loose, easy to repair) sort of feels like an obligation to mod it (custom driver board with dual switch firmware, probably based on lucidrv though), however it has low a priority on my list.

Any estimation on the actual realistic output lumens? They say 1198lm which considering china usual statements could be even be realistic? Or maybe 700-800?

Oh shoot.even though I already owned 2 of these, but at this price I might want to get another 2.. as it is a solid light. Throws farther than a C8.. and the output is easily bump up by simple resistor mod

Thanks for posting this

Thanks southland, I think it’ll be useful for the venting test I’ve been wanting to do for a while.

The unprotected charging port makes it much easier to overcharge a cell and trigger a failure.

Does longer protected li-ion batteries fit (like 69,5-70,1mm) - I'm not interested in using the charging port.

Light up the darkness.

I got this CT9T from gearbest. It came without the logo printed on it. This is an upgraded version of the CT9T. It has a blue led light in the side button when the light is on or you put the light in standby with the side switch. This new version also has an improved centering ring that allows a lot more light from the led to hit the reflector. The old black centering ring appeared to block a lot of the Led light. The new centering ring is white and there is also a black outer piece that covers the solder joints to the main led star.

The link is: http://www.gearbest.com/led-flashlights/pp_88906.html

Well, this is the comment of Phsinvent take from the review of Chloe (this: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/33486).
So, anybody here can confirm that there a “new” batch of Warsun flashlight, a sort of 2.0 version, with some improvement?
Well, the price of Banggood is hard to beat…but if you know something, can you please tell us? Wink

What does that mean?

It means due to the Chinese New Year, they probably won’t process your order till the 22nd at the earliest. Take your typical China delivery time and add a couple weeks to it so you know when to expect it.

If I want to use that light only with the side switch (like a King/Kong) – what driver should I buy?

Thanks!
