Bun of a sitch!  And I just bought my DRY!!  This body is SO much nicer than the DRY with the knurling and finning details. If the driver is up to snuff this would be one hell of a light.  I wonder what it will end up selling for?  Could always put a DRY driver in it and have performance AND looks. Cool

I'm going to have to start saving up now to get one by summer time.  I really like the looks of this over the DRY/Brynite.  With the larger head it may throw better too if the individual reflectors are wider.

HKE is already selling it for $99.  Looks like the DRY is the budget model in this format.  Can't wait for someone to purchase the T70 and give it a full review.

The design is definitely a nice one. 

HKE says Max 2500 Lumens (factory rated)

Ultrafire says 2400 Lumens (Manufacturer rated) ...

This photo says 1800 lumens (1800流明)

The DRY is the budget model in this segment because it's the easiest to manufacture, the machining time is short, so the price is accordingly, fortunately.

That light is awesome. I just ordered a couple extra Dry drivers from Ric because I can see this one in my near future plus they are the best triple x driver I have found and only 5 bucks each.

I am already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth.

Seems like a 350m throw as well. nice...

HKeq says H-L-Strobe but Ultrafire.et says H M L. I hope its H M L!!!

This one is supposed to be 830 grams, quite much more heavier than the DRY, 350grams. It will be very interesting to know how is it dealing with the heat, but considering the 2.6A, probably it will be fine.

That must be it. 830g seems too much.  

They say 2000 lumens. Appear that everybody specs lumens differently for this flashlight.

If it has the same beam characteristics as the Jetbeam RRT3 XML, i will be buying one. it has similar head diameter: 65mm vs 67mm (UF:JB).

Mode lock sounds pretty cool, but I'm guessing that would be lost of stock driver was swapped for dry driver?

Having toyed with my DRY for a few days, I no longer think the turbo is just for wow and wasting batteries - it is actually quite useful, despite the limited duration.

I like the look of this light, but would have preferred they just round out the body of the T60 for the additional cell Smile

$82 ($10 off) if you purchase 5+. Maybe someone should try to setup a GB? I really like the look of this light but it's more than I can justify spending right now so I wouldn't be interested; maybe others would though once a couple of members have posted their impressions...

I've never been a fan of lights using >two lith. cells, so I've never been into the DRY.   But there's something about this light that truly tempts me.  The pics at Ric's suggest that this could have high build quality, rather like the MCU-C88.   I think that I'll be putting some funds aside just in case I can't resist the temptation after its been reviewed.

I'm very interested to see how this new Ultrafire UF-T70 stacks up against the DRY 3xCREE XM-L T6  and TrustFire TR-J12.  It would also be nice if the Redilast 3100mAh  protected cells would work.

i also have tk70 and 4 random triple cee xml s so i feel i am a reasonable judge . i would say its a winner   build quality amazing  i never use them for long so not sure how hot it gets but for a living i am a chimney sweep so i feel i know much more about spill and contrast between hot spot than many users but lack in depth knwledge on testing output , and yes i have terrible grammer but just back from pub so its a very bright whits not blue but compared to say tk35 its very white  , in  fact due to deeper reflectors its very simular to the tk35 beam pattern , i have the sky ray 5 xml  and i would say this is now my best light in fact i will sell my tk70 with batts if any one wants it pretty cheap with good batts , oh one negative the battery  unit has springs both ends i guess for flat top cells one of them bust off when i tried to remove a battery but still works with my  cells , in the past  people have complained about my posts i dont mind doing some pics and answering questions but please ignore this poste rather than  replying with some  over critical response

Will the Dry Drivers with Step-Down fit in this light?

The DRY drivers are on the small size, among 3xT6 drivers.

Without seeing the light, I would guess a very firm 'probably'

Go on then, post some pics! Smile Also could describe how the modes car changed on the torch?

Edit: Tried ordering one but it costs extra $20 to ship to uk! Sigh, group buy anyone?
