Guys,

I have to tell you : Ric is a good guy you know.

He already sent me an email saying that the 2 glasses will be replaced soon.

 

I like his service.

Therefore I'm sure I will order things from him again in the future. He is TOP !!

How come it's broken? Well sending flashlights in bubble pack in an envelope is standard for budget lights. But you mean the lens that is in the flashlight is also broken?  That is one mean by the post office drop man!  From your picture the lens is chipped at the side so that seems like side impact and not frontal impact.   I assume he sent a spare lens since there is an extra in the package.

Actually you still can use the left side one, till you receive the new ones. Enjoy!  Smile

I also shattered my glass lens for the Ultrafire U80.  Got my replacement here.

Only the glasses are broken. The flashlight itself is ok. It seems to work fine.

BOTH of the glasses are broken. The one which was on the lamp was more broken.

The other spare one is broken too...it must have an unsafe travel.

 

Ric will send me 2 glasses...as the one on the torch was broken and the spare one is broken too.

So he will send 2 of them.

Could I put on my x6 sst-90 what would the beam do

The beam would look really funky. Even if you managed to mod it to fit, you need the correct focal lens so that it doesn't focus when it is too far from the emitter, plus also adjustable focus to fine tune.  Aspherics cannot work with reflectors, not that you'd want it to be that way anyway....

If you really want to spend on a AR lens, the UCL is nice and not too expensive. More for looks, your 74mm big reflector would really be nice.
