Fake MS18 ?

Has anyone else seen this? It looks like they are even using some of Imalent’s pics.
I am almost tempted to buy one just to see what I get.

That place is like many others. You won’t get a MS18. Click on the first pic in the collection of pics. That cheap light will be the one your getting. They just include a bunch of MS18 pics and that one pic of the cheapo light. Then state in the description “Customers, please identify our products”.

As tempting as it seems, I agree with the others this seems to be a scam. BUT…, if you’re willing, buy one and let us know what you get.

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

Thanks for the replies. I figure it was a scam. I am amazed that Imalent doesn’t go after these
scammers for using some of their own information to sell this P.O.S. I’ll use the $$$ to buy more
batts for the MF02S that I just ordered.

Hi new to the forum but registered as I did buy one :

The torch itself if you were buying it not as a full Ms 18 it is a very good torch , yes it is made of plastic and the same size of the ms 18 so big but very lightweight, no heat sink or cooling ,the brightness is similar to a led lenses x21r of about 800m throw (my college has one to compare against ) it also has a cheap plastic front lens which is scratched easy ,it is not waterproof and inside are three linked 18650 batteries ,only 4 modes of light turbo (for a min ) then high med / low and strobe I,ve had this for six months and it is still working as my main torch as a security officer doing nights full charge on turbo then high will last about 45 mins and for the £25 I paid it is excellent value . I bought through face book for £49 and paid PayPal then when it arrived raised complaint on all the things it said it was but wasn’t got 50% refund
Hope this helps

The link in OP is dead, but for those who crave for something special:
It’s here. All other websites my search came up with are “currently unavailable”.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.
