Thanks for the heads up. Looks like a very interesting light. I’m wondering how the mcpcb looks like. The beam shot shows a very greenish beam. If the emitter can be easily changed, then this would be a great light. The only 2×18650 I’ve seen with built-in usb charging.

I can’t find a way into the light. It’s gotta be there, but how?
I find all 3 70.2s I have – have the green meanies.
It’s not as bad as the pics show, but you can sure see it on a white wall hunt.
You need a few magnet spacers to run it on flat top 18650s.
At the sale price, I just ordered one. I’ve bought from this place 2 times before and haven’t gotten burned so far.
