This light looks very much like the 26650 version that Justin (Old Lumens) was working on with Thorfire a number of years back. I was lucky enough to end up with one of the very few prototypes that was made and the light never went into production because Justin was not satisfied with a couple of things that Thorfire did not get the way he wanted them.

This is one light I will never get rid of though simply because it came from one of the greats that we had on this forum and I will always cherish the light.

Cheaper alternative?. If this is the same as the UltraFire F13 I already have, the reflector is smaller than a C8 at 36.5mm, but still a nice size.

The UltraFire works well with a XHP50 and OP reflector from KD (its a little short though). I’ve one of these on order with a XHP35 HI waiting for it.

I have this one on order, but it’s over 2 months since ordering and still not arrived. It took over 2 weeks to send it and I had to extend the period for seller.
But when it arrives I can let u know the impressions.

The one I used was from KD 36.5mm(D) x 25mm(H) OP ,unfortunately it is shorter than the original. I used a 1mm copper shim under the MPCB and two O-rings to keep it and the lens in place.

Is the long version 1 piece (2×26650) or is it 2 pieces ( regular 1 × 26650 tube + extension tube) ? I have doubts.

Can somebody who has C8.2 and Convoy L2 check if the L2 body extension tube will fit on C8.2
