Did you order a DX80?  Maybe that's the sleeper version.

Don’t laugh. It appears that this is a POLICE light.

- X3 - This is actually quite upsetting. Did you really not order this light?? If 'suppliers' or websites are sending out cheap lights to people, this is BAD. At least for me, customs charges and shipping (yes, I have to pay additional shipping) can come up to $20 for that little piece of ... aluminium.

My gratitude to those who are willing and able to help others (in whatever way you can)! Being human is more than just existing for yourself. Smile
