For Those Wanting To Purchase Trustfire 3800 Lumen 3 XM-L Light: Don't Buy This

Update:  Buyer Beware

I found this and you won't get it any cheaper.  You can also make the guy an offer and probably get it a little cheaper.  I'll also include a link for the cheapest place to buy the extra extension tube so it will accept 3 18650 batteries.  So for $46.39 minimum and maybe less you can get all this.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/TrustFire-3x-CREE-XM-L-T6-LED-Flashlight-Torch-3800Lm-/190572268143?pt=US_Flashlights&hash=item2c5efe0a6f

http:// lightmalls . com/extension-tube-for-the-trustfire-tr-3t6-skyray-3t6

I was informed that this guy is selling fake Trustfire flashlights.

Now I posted that to help our members here.  If you would rather buy the light from a dealer and not there, then please do so.  That guy I believe is very good and should be fast shipping especially for US buyers.

Cool.  Not to mention, it's a US based seller so shipping should be very fast!

It's only good for US buyers.  Shipping is usd 9.99 to Asia, Romania, Aus etc....  Smile  But still a wee bit cheaper.

Description on the eBay page says 8.4V Max Vin.  If that's true, adding a third 18650 would be a really bad plan.

Great deal for the 2x18650 though.

I am currently extremely busy with work. Please do not expect a response from me quickly. I will be dropping in as time permits, but the amount of time I can dedicate to responding to topics and PMs is very limited.

http://budgetlightforum.com/node/3700?page=1

one question what does my post 63 have to do with it ?

i was testing a TrustFire TR-3T6 Triple XM-L T6 5-Modes Memory LED Flashlight (3x18650) 

i was not testing a TrustFire TR-3T6 Triple XM-L T6 5 Modes LED Flashlight (2x18650 two diffrent things i believe.

2 x 18650 modle is claimed 8.4v max regulated at 2.5 amp

3 x 18650 model is claimed 12.6v max regulated at 3 amp (this is the one i was testing)

so your suggesting to buy a TR-3T6 2 x 18650 (and sugesting you can run 3 x 18650,s) off ebay for $55.58 usd not bad price if it is shipped from brooklyn usa but then add $4.80 usd for the extension tube that might blow up your torch, total $60.38 usd. manafont sell the same thing shipped for $53.95.

but the ebay seller works out more costly and the shipping time would be about the same internationaly so no joy for us interantional guys looks like this ones for the usa boy,s, shipping time from the usa to australia is about the same or more as shipping to from manafont for me any way,  (i personaly i would not make two order for the same thing plus pay more for it and the fact that it might get damaged the first time you use 3 x 18650 in it)

there is alot of sellers that claim they are local on ebay but drop ship the items and shipping time is the same or worse it is most likely not the case but it could be, i brought a poineer mp3 player for my car from perth western australia but it was drop shipped from asia not to mention alot of other items lolls.

you can buy the realy deal the TR-3T6 3 x 18650 from manafont for $55.80 (no extra extention tubes needed) and thats the one i would suggest buying and thats the one i was testing on post number 63 you linked and the entire thread, its claimed 12.6v max and has a higher claimed regulation of 0.5 amps so more light out put and you can run 2 x 18650,s or 3 x 18650 for longer run times and longer between charging, but buy what you want from where you want guys.

i would suggest to buy the TR-3T6 3 x 18650 and the only place that sells the TR-3T6 3 x 18650 is Manafont i hope people read the whole thread and just didnt go off and buy the TR-3T6 2 x 18650 and extention tubes thinking they could run 3 x 18650,s in it as it might damage it.

p,s the light will not throw 1000 meters like the ebay seller claimes either around 150 meters is it and its a massive wall of light great torch

i do not work for manafont or trustfire but i thought i should pipe in as i belive my thread was linked out of contexted i would hate to see people damage there lights but buy what you want from where you want guys its a great torch that will provide long run times and will last unlike some others you will love it.

Hi there ILIKEFLASHLIGHTS, no worries, I'm not accusing you of posting anything unsafe. I just wanted to remove the link to Lightmalls, since that draws unwanted attention by spammers.

You may well be able to run 3 x 18650's in the TR-3T6 2 x 18650 model but I would not suggest it untill it's been tryed and tested for long runs cause just incase it's not able to run 3 x 18650 you have will have people with none working lights that payed more then needed to save a few days shipping that are pisses off, then a good torch will get bad publicity. I would wait till it's been tryed and tested first and run 3 x 18650 in the 2 x 18650's at your own risk I don't want my post to be the go ahead for people to do it just incase in does not work. It might work they might be the same driver but don't go off my post # 63 as I was using a different model the 3 x 18650 and if some one wants to give me $5.80 usd I will test mine to see if it runs off 4 or 5 18650,s for a laugh

Thanks for the info.  I know I run 3 18650's in my TR-1200 and Keygos X6 XR-E Q5 light.  I don't really know if it is safe to do so, but I haven't had any issues.  I ran the Keygos the other day for 1hr and 15 min on high with 3 Trustfire flame 18650's before I turned it off.  It was still running very bright for the beam, but the head of the light was getting hot so I shut it down.  But heck the head on my Keygos KE-5 single 18650 gets reallly hot.  Not a lot of difference.

The TR-1200 is a 12.6v max 2 x 18650 or 3 x 18650 torch so it is fine to run it on 3 x 18650,s I do with mine all the time with constant on high runs up to 1.5 hours, but not all torches will do it, I was not having a go at you I just didn't want my post to be responsible if people's torches drivers melted, there is a 3 x 18650 model of the TR-3T6 that's been tryed and test if people want the extra run time and want to play it safe.

The good thing about TF-3T6 is that the drivers are easily available too (you might want to stock up 1 if you find that the light suits you). Tailcap also compatible.

The bezel, tail cap and switch, o-rings glass lense and extention tubes from the TR-1200 fit the TR-3T6 so you can pretty much fully rebuild the TR-3T6 and the empty TR-1200 host are around 13 bucks shipped. It's all in my TR-3T6 thread http://budgetlightforum.com/node/3700#comment-73094

Yea!!

I was so excited waiting for this light to come in.  My first 3xXML light and lo and behold its a fake.  Dang ebay,  I knew it was to good to be true.  Oh well Manafont here I come!   Silly

The biggest give away is when I put in the CK 3100s and fired it up to a very underwhelming beam of maybe 700 lumens on high.  Drop-in screws into the bezel and not the head.  Tail cap draw of 1.78A on high 1.20 on medium and .67 on low.

I got one from seller yallstore and I'm very disappointed. It's not the one pictured in the ebay ad. Looks more like the Skyray 3800 but a little shorter and has trouble tailstanding. It's a drop in version. Less bright than my Skyray 3800.

Yup, Yall Store, same $41 shipped.  Blah, this thing very disappointing. Sad  Massive sag, on the order of 200 to 300 lumens in the first 3 minutes, starting at maaaaybe 700 lumens.  Even doing the usual heatsinking and thermal paste did absolutely no good, waste of thermal paste.  Oh well, on to the next light.   

The TK70 is looking very tempting now.  Anyone know where I can get 1 for around 40 bucks?   Silly

Well if you think you got a item not as described and you don't file a dispute and escalate it to a claim then that is on you.  I would contact the seller first and tell him this is what you are going to do.  There shouldn't be any excuse to be hooked off ebay anymore.  Paypal has  protected me and sided with me lately anyway.  I did get screwed years ago for almost $300.  I got no help from ebay or paypal.  But now they are a lot better and you are protected from bad sellers.  Use their services.  You will see I am right.

if the seller does not help as he will say thats how i got them how would i know and im dont think they will send them all back to the suplier and reship the geniune lights and you make a paypal claim they will make you send it back and provide a tracking number so either way you will be out of pocket..... and some time, this will realy hurt international buyers as you will find it will cost to much to return... oftern alot more then you payed for shipping i think some sellers relie on this.

an unproven link worked well once again in the quest to save a few more bucks 28 have been sold this thread bosted alot of there sales of a fake, so any one who did not get a geniune Trustfire TR-3T6 2 x 18650 i would leave negitive feedback of some sort stating they are not geniune to ward off any more sales it might help others not make the same mistake ?

most stuff on ebay is cheap or cheap copies and or drop shipped i do use ebay alot for brand name rc items or connectors to make my own leads and charging box,s or clear 18650 box,s for storage, but the last 5 or 6 torch related items ive been realy disapointed with the items and ive had to settle with the seller for partial refunds as if i make a paypal claim, they make you return the items and return international postage is just a killer, for local buyers it will be cheaper just take some time to complete the process.

just my thoughts

Nope.  If item isn't as described, and you escalate dispute to a claim and paypal sides in your favor then it is up to paypal if they choose to ship the item back in which they won't overseas and they pick up the shipping charges.  They give you your money back in your paypal account and they get their money back from the seller that you sent payment too.  If seller doesn't agree to pay them back in so many days then paypal automatically deducts it from their account.  If they try and close their account then paypal will watch for this and then grab it from their account beforehand.  They will get their money back one way or the other.  That is part of the fine little print and restrictions that they have.   

And you probably will get to keep the item.  I have done this before on items not as described and bought overseas.

im not going to argue with you but yes paypal does make international costomers send items back i know of this first hand more then once its happended to me, paypal will not pick up the return shipping cost the buyer does, even the ebay listing says clearly the buyer pays return shipping and by buying you have agreed to the terms and conditions.

your not going to get a full refund and get to keep the torch think about it, then any one who brought an international item can make a bogus claim keep the item and get there money back, paypal will make you send the item back, you will be out of pocket for return shipping cost.

if what your saying is true was true i would order a few cheap torch,s or a few tex600,s make a claim keep the torches or helies and get a full refund and then resale them on i could make a 200% profit and keep a couple for my self.

this thread shows up if you search the TR-3T6 on google so it avilible to all the internet not just forum members, i feel sorry for the people who brought the fake now a good torch will get a bad rep, but this thread should slow it down now.

Well I won't argue with you either, but you need to read this. 

10. Your Liability - Actions We May Take.

10.1 Your Liability.

  1. General. You are responsible for all Reversals, Chargebacks, Claims, fees, fines, penalties and other liability incurred by PayPal, a User, or a third party caused by or arising out of your breach of this Agreement, and/or your use of the PayPal Services. You agree to reimburse PayPal, a User, or a third party for any and all such liability.
  2. Liability for Claims under PayPal Purchase Protection. If you are a Seller and PayPal makes a final decision that you lose a Claim filed directly with PayPal, you will be required to reimburse PayPal for your liability. Your liability will include the full purchase price of the item plus the original shipping cost (and in some cases you may not receive the item back). You will not receive a refund of your PayPal fees. PayPal Seller protection may cover your liability—see Section 11 (Protection for Sellers) below.

    If a buyer files a Significantly Not as Described (SNAD) Claim for an item they purchased from you, you will generally be required to accept the item back and refund the buyer the full purchase price plus original shipping costs. You will not receive a refund on your PayPal fees. Further, if you lose a SNAD Claim because we, in our sole discretion, reasonably believe the item you sold is counterfeit, you will be required to provide a full refund to the buyer and you will not receive the item back (it will be destroyed). PayPal Seller protection will not cover your liability.
  3. Liability for claims filed under eBay’s Buyer Protection resolution process. If you are an eBay Seller, eBay requires that you comply with the eBay Buyer Protection resolution process. As such, you have provided eBay with permission to make a final decision on a claim that a buyer files against you directly with eBay. If eBay makes a final decision that you lose a claim, you agree to allow PayPal to remove funds from your Account in order to reimburse eBay for your liability. eBay Buyer Protection claims filed directly with eBay are not covered by PayPal Seller protection. Please see the eBay Buyer Protection policy for more information. You will not receive a refund of your PayPal fees. If your Balance is not sufficient to reimburse eBay, PayPal will place a hold on your Account until the earlier of: (1) when sufficient funds are added to your Balance to reimburse eBay for your liability at which time we will reimburse eBay in full, or (2) 37 Days from the date of eBay’s decision that you lose the claim at which time we will remove your Balance to partially reimburse eBay for your liability.

If you do not want to allow PayPal to reimburse eBay for your liability, you may opt-out by calling eBay at 1-866-643-0898. Your opt-out will be effective within 3 Business Days. If you opt-out then eBay will not use your Account to recover amounts that you owe due to an eBay claim that you lost. This opt-out will not affect other amounts that you pay to eBay using your Account (such as your eBay fees).

10.2 Reimbursement for Your Liability. In the event that you are liable for any amounts owed to PayPal, PayPal may immediately remove such amounts from your Balance. If you do not have a Balance that is sufficient to cover your liability, your remaining Balance (if any) will be removed, your Account will have negative Balance up to the amount of your liability, and you will be required to immediately add funds to your Balance to eliminate the negative Balance. If you do not do so, PayPal may engage in collection efforts to recover such amounts from you.

10.3 Actions by PayPal - Restricted Activities. If PayPal, in its sole discretion, believes that you may have engaged in any Restricted Activities, we may take various actions to protect PayPal, eBay, other Users, other third parties, or you from Reversals, Chargebacks, Claims, fees, fines, penalties and any other liability. The actions we may take include but are not limited to the following:

  1. We may close, suspend, or limit your access to your Account or the PayPal Services (such as limiting access to any of your Payment Methods, and/or your ability to send money, make withdrawals, or remove financial Information). Use the Report Form link to request information in connection with an account limitation, hold or reserve – to access the Report Form:

  2. We may contact Users who have purchased goods or services from you, contact your bank or credit card issuer, and/or warn other Users, law enforcement, or impacted third parties of your actions;

  3. We may update inaccurate Information you provided us;

  4. We may refuse to provide the PayPal Services to you in the future;

  5. We may hold your funds for up to 180 Days if reasonably needed to protect against the risk of liability or if you have violated our Acceptable Use Policy;

  6. We may take legal action against you; and

  7. If you violate the PayPal Acceptable Use Policy, then in addition to the above actions you will be liable to PayPal for the amount of PayPal’s damages caused by your violation of the Acceptable Use Policy. You acknowledge and agree that $2,500.00 USD per violation of the Acceptable Use Policy is presently a reasonable minimum estimate of PayPal’s actual damages considering all currently existing circumstances, including the relationship of the sum to the range of harm to PayPal that reasonably could be anticipated because due to the nature of the violations of the Acceptable Use Policy, actual damages would be impractical or extremely difficult to calculate. PayPal may deduct such damages directly from any existing Balance in the offending Account, or any other Account you control.

PayPal, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to terminate this Agreement, access to its website, or access to the PayPal Services for any reason and at any time upon notice to you and payment to you of any unrestricted funds held in custody for you.

10.4 Actions by PayPal - Holds.

  1. Risk-Based Holds. PayPal, in its sole discretion, may place a hold on any or all of the payments you receive when PayPal believes there may be a high level of risk associated with you, your Account, or any or all of your transactions. PayPal’s determination may be based on a number of different factors and PayPal may rely on information it receives from its third party partners such as eBay. If PayPal places a hold on a payment, the funds will appear in your “Pending Balance” and the payment status will show as “Completed - Funds not yet available”. If PayPal places a hold on any or all of the payments you receive PayPal will provide you with notice of our actions. PayPal will release the hold on any payment after 21 Days from the date the payment was received into your Account unless you receive a Dispute, Claim, Chargeback, or Reversal or PayPal has taken another action permitted under this Section 10. PayPal, in its sole discretion, may release the hold earlier under certain circumstances, for example PayPal may release the hold earlier if you have uploaded tracking information. If you receive a Dispute, Claim, Chargeback, or Reversal, PayPal may continue holding the payment in your Account until the matter is resolved pursuant to this Agreement.
  2. Disputed Transaction Holds. If a User files a Dispute, Claim, Chargeback or Reversal on a payment you received, PayPal may place a temporary hold on the funds in your Account to cover the amount of the liability. If you win the dispute or the transaction is eligible for PayPal Seller protection, PayPal will lift the temporary hold. If you lose the dispute, PayPal will remove the funds from your Account. This process also applies to claims that a buyer files directly with eBay through the eBay resolution process if your Account is your reimbursement method for buyer claims.
  3. 10.5 Actions by PayPal - Reserves. PayPal, in its sole discretion, may place a Reserve on funds held in your Premier or Business Account when PayPal believes there may be a high level of risk associated with your Account. If PayPal places a Reserve on funds in your Account, they will be shown as "pending" in your PayPal Balance. If your Account is subject to a Reserve, PayPal will provide you with notice specifying the terms of the Reserve. The terms may require that a certain percentage of the amounts received into your Account are held for a certain period of time, or that a certain amount of money is held in reserve, or anything else that PayPal determines is necessary to protect against the risk associated with your Account. PayPal may change the terms of the Reserve at any time by providing you with notice of the new terms.
  4. 10.6 Actions by PayPal - Account Closure, Termination of Service, Limited Account Access; Confidential Criteria. If we close your Account or terminate your use of the PayPal Services for any reason, we will provide you with notice of our actions. If we limit access to your Account, including through a Reserve or hold, we will provide you with notice of our actions, and the opportunity to request restoration of access if, in our sole discretion, we deem it appropriate. Further, you acknowledge that PayPal’s decision to take certain actions, including limiting access to your Account by placing holds or imposing Reserves, may be based on confidential criteria that are essential to our management of risk and the security of Users’ Accounts and the PayPal system. You agree that PayPal is under no obligation to disclose the details of its risk management or its security procedures to you.
