Thanks for the incredibly fast reply! This really helps.

If the sizes I listed are correct it appears that pretty much any of these cells will fit.

Anyone know is this flashlight discontinued and no longer available? Its not listed on Banggood or Gearbest, and the EE aliexpress store showing “this product is no longer available” and there are no other products there either.

Ordered one a week or so ago in the Ali store. Also happened in the past that the store was empty, so try to check in a week or so, it’s such a fine and cheap light it must live on.

Probably just in between production runs.

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.

I'm planning on doing a X6R triple with the copper heat sink I got from nitro. I as well love this light, recommended it. I'm so-so confident in the built-in charging circuit though from others reported problems, but if it fails, it's pretty isolated from the driver, so not a big loss.

They are on holiday from 22 Jan - 20 Feb. There will be no shipment during this period. Probably that was why most vendors temporary halt their sales for Eagle Eye.

it's one-mode though and not using XP-L HI. Otherwise, I'd be all friggin' over it!

Joe, I’d say the 1 mode spec is a typo – (the norm for fasttech) Also the X6R never came with XPL-HI

I don’t remember seeing any X6R with an XP-L HI.

I didn’t notice the modes though. I think it might be a typo, as it also says the max output is 350ma.

edit: I guess I just sound like a mockingbird…

I don't think FT wants to sell these - 1 mode and 350 lumens max. We will never see GearBest under spec a flashlight Smile.

I just don’t need another XM-L2 light. A newer emitter would revive this light easily.

XM-L2 may seem “old news” but it’s still the best performing emitter in its class, unless you want an HI for throw or the smaller XP-G3.

XP-G3 sounds best! Smile

I changed one to a XP-L HI gave it a real nice beam profile. I don’t have it any more though, I lend it to my father and never got it back.
I have been trying for a long time to give him a flashlight but he always returned them. On this he likes the beam profile, tint, dual switches and build in charger.The charger works very good but I put in a protected NCR18650B just to be safe.

I’ve got another one of these lights on order, so I figured I should update my X6R-specific driver to latest and greatest.

I present the TripleStack X6R

Dang, you got the latest stuff on there as well. Boy, your TripleStack started a trend. I gotta add support for them in Narsil.

I just got these boards in. Looks like R3 is the 4.7, and R4 and R5 for the FET, so think we got everything covered.

I'd like to triplestack, triple-led an X6R, just dunno when i can get to it all.

PD - have you done anything yet with this driver?

I have one in hand, and it looks really good. I just got my X6R and heatsink delivered, just waiting for emitters, optic, and mcpcb to get here before I start work

Ohh, cool! I got a triple MCPCB and optic, but not sure what LED's to use... Think'n XPL HI's or V6 3D's.
