Nice looking 26650 light/mod host?

Anybody have this? Looks pretty nice for under $10! Reminds me of lights from Nico Nature/LuckySun. On sale for about 5 more days.

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

It looks ok. The reflector looks a little short though, and I’ve promised myself I’m not buying any more lights with press-fit aluminum driver compartments. :Sp

Press fit…is this what were looking at here? Didn’t notice it at first. I don’t think I have a “press-fit aluminum driver compartment” light. What is the problem with them?

This is 3.5 times cheaper than the XINTD X3.

Tempted, but I've ordered too much recently already. I wonder if it has a solid pill?

Press-fit aluminum pill can be very annoying to get a good fit and ground connection. There’s no retaining ring to screw down, and you can’t solder a bridge to the pill

There is no picture with the tail cap off. Check with GB if the tail cap is removable. Just in case.

Totally agree, press fit drivers can and usually will be problematic, but sometimes you can prick punch/ peen over the edge with a center punch, to hold it down, usually? I have a couple Supfire L3’s like this, where the manufacture center punched the edge over.

It looks like a Palight A8-X960LS - I wrote a short review a longer time ago about it:

69mm 18650 fits, longer protected Panasonic not really good (26650 fits, but I haven't one around me at the moment).

Light up the darkness.

Agreed I have a A8. The tail cap doesn't  come of  if it is a "clone". Not a bad light but it in the "meh" box.
