At one of our local forums, there was review of Sunwayman lights, which included also M20C:

http://www.torch.pl/forum/index.php?topic=58161.0

Low mode current draw is 0.013A which means more than 100hrs ...but it means it's not 13lm. It's the same situation as with M10A. The low mode is EXTREMELY low, way lower than manufacturer specs. As for V60C runtime... indeed bummer. It seems that circuit with electronic switch is not that efficient.

I see.... 13mA is 5 lumens on the LED calculator spreadsheet.  Not sure how much is the driver loss.  Actually like that i like it even more, i was like pretty stressed last night, 13 lumens is too bright!    My N-Light ST50 takes in 0.017A as well, it reads about 4 lumens on the meter but it's probably very inaccurate at such levels.  Will do a comparison.

Jetbeam RRT-2 XP-G is the light to get as well.  Extremely solid flashlight, magnetic ring.  I have the XM-L, really a joy to use.   $75 after 15% disc.

BC10 also not too bad, 270 lumens pocket rocket.  $25 after 15%!

http://www.dinodirect.com/led-flashlight-30lm-270lm-2mode-cree-xpg-r5.html

 

What the....  RRT-0 XM-L (latest version) for 75 bucks?  This is selling at $110 in the US stores.

http://www.dinodirect.com/flashlight-jetbeam-rrt0-xml-t6-hard-light-military-mini-portable-rechargeable-aa-battery.html

(btw the infinite variable magnetic ring series has a special function, I think it's strobe or what, you just switch it On and Off thrice very quickly to access)

 

Does BC10 take RCR123?

 I want that V60C so bad but I won't be in town in another 2 week to receive the light. At $115 it is the cheapest EVER. I'm a big fan of sunwayman, I just love that beautiful finish on their lights. Now if DD is sending me $15 gift card in the next 24 hours for sending me 3 wrong modes lights and the V60c's price still the same, I "think" i will order and send it to a relative house (don't know if i could do that if paying using paypal) 

You can, absolutely no issue, just open a case with CS and they will take care of that.   I selected the "wrong" address in Paypal (I have 3 address...hehe) and i opened a case with CS, they say they will take care of that, no worries.  DD CS writes 1 to 2 replies per day, pretty good.   This is the advantage in dealing with Chinese companies, everything is OK.   What would you want them to write on the customs sheet?  (esp for EU?)

You love them and also you hate them....  heh....

I guess it should.  Hmm...never noticed that it takes CR123 instead of RCR123 aka 16340s...

Shoot, i want that P2A. 2 x AA so it'd be good for your parents etc.  Very nice design, HA etc.  26 bucks shipped! That's a budget light in my book.  Will ask my wife to see if her parents want a light.

Summer is often active in ths thread, so I hope you can answer two little questions:

Is it possible to send a product without a invoice (christmas is coming and if I send a friend a flashlight as a present, it would be nice to have no invoice).

Can you (or anybody else) tell me something about this flashlight:

http://www.dinodirect.com/flashlight-240-lumens-stepless-adjusted-power-...

I find out, that it is the Warsun Mini 9 (homepage www.warsun.net). Which LED is built in (Q5?). I think, the price is really high, for such a light.

Light up the darkness.

I know someone who asked the same thing and was told no, they cannot due to customs requirement.

I like: walks on the beach, sushi and things that are paisley.

Hi - Not to be a shill here, but Summer really helped me out when I wanted to order a light with my PayPal, but ship it to my friend in Europe as a gift (different address than billing address in North America).

 

Anyway after my order I just pm'd Summer and he modified the address and let me know when the item shipped, so I appreciate the good service

Is this the only way to receive packages without the invoice inside? I had some troubles with the customs because the price in the invoice that was inside the package was greater that the price I payed. Why your invoices does not show the real price payed (price - discount)?

hi, torelu,we usually put invoice in the parcel of each item, but the price should be the same or lower than the price of the item itself. The invoice was automatically made by the machine, so there might be some mistakes, if this brings you any inconvenience, we are sincerely sorry for that. And for the one you do not want to have an invoice in the parcel, you can just tell me the order NO, then i will contact with our delivery department to deal with your order patiently.

Any order so far had the included invoice with the wrong figures. It would be nice if we could choose not to have the invoice in the package at checkout. Too many trouble for us and for you to always send and receive messages for this things.

In my last order, the price on the invoice was real price I paid (including all discounts). However, I would like not to have invoice included as well.

Other sellers from HK/China don't include invoice and I doubt it's required. Only CN22 form that is sticked to the envelope is required. But that form DD fills correctly (for us, I mean Smile ).

In my country the customs officer opens the envelope in front of the receiver. This way, I payed for an ebook reader more that I had to (24% VAT). None of my invoices were printed correctly (almost 10).

Invoices are not required for customs (not in the package at least).

Please try to offer some budget lights... I cant drop $160 on a light like its nothing...if I do spend that much it means no more group deals for the next year, LOL.

 

Anyway your store already has some good deals they just were not pushed, the E05 would have been like $14 or something, and the Klarus p2a around $25...another dollar off those and I think they would have sold very well.

Woow Surprised

That would be awesome to win such trip... I always wanted to see the sights of far east.

But that "100$ purchase" part is a bit hard.

 

On the other hand, knowing DD practices, I'd be a bit affraid after winning such trip. PayPal wouldn't cover my ass while being left somewhere in the middle of China ...LOL.

Anyway, thanks Summer for the info. Many folks appreciate your efforts here (as well as recent discounts on some products).

This is a great chance and I think the $100 is ok. If you take $50 there are a lot of users, who could enter and the chance to win decrease.

Is it ok to select a coupon? For example the order is over $100, but I use a coupon and pay only $90.

Light up the darkness.
