I love it, but I can't justify it at $44 (neutral). A GB would be just what I need. Smile

Do you suppose this is a Shadow light? I can't find any markings. I immediately thought of Shadow when I saw this.

Interesting, but waayy too expensive.

Come on... 42 bucks for a simple "tubular" light that's basically a little fatter 1x18650 light with cheap and simple 8xAMC circuit? There's not enough machining that could justify  price that high.

Yes, 33$ would be more acceptable.

As for the origin, I guess this is the same factory, that makes lights for Bryan at Shiningbeam.com. The one that made MG RX-1, MG L-Mini, MG Pli ...etc. The quality is OK, but 42$ is not the right price for it.

The lights at CNQG are usually not cheap unless if it's a GB or you are a regular, but they are also quite unique.

127mm, that's like a uniquefire 2100 or Shadow ST-50 style, noticeably shorter than P60s.  32mm diameter, just a wee bit fatter than a P60.    But in terms of juice it is 26650, or twice that of a TF Flame 2400.

 

I already have the CNQ extreme runtime though....but that's much bigger.

 

The support aspect must also be factored in. My TK35 clone needs a driver and though the original factory one could not be sourced, a third-party one is on the way on a slow boat, FOC.  If it's DX/KD/MF, then good luck.  Big Smile   It could be pretty slow, it took a while, but well enjoy the hobby and don't rush.

 

PS. It also has the highest number of NW/T6 3C options for these semi-custom lights - for true flashlight enthusiasts. Even better than premium lights in this aspect!

Of course, $40 shipped for T6 3C would be more realistic for a small GB.  Not many would like 26650s.

This one also, at least there is a 2nd option now in addition to the Trustfire X9...plus T6 3C.  HA as well.

Wow, I definitely want this in a Group Buy! I'd also like the body as a host. Maybe I should contact Ric...

  Nice find!

If there's a GB at under $40 I'd definitely be interested.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

I agree, at this price it's not too feasible. I like the concept - simple and compact 26650 - but I don't really understand the price compared to similar 18650 offerings.

Ric must have been reading as the price has already been lowered... but only to $39

 

Actually, now that I think of it, this design is more reminiscent of a Tank007 E07 with that gold ring and almost entirely knurled body. It's an oversized E07 but with beefy guts!

Are all 26650 too big for a clip?

Yell

I bet Hank or Rick would deal.

12 units for $29.00 each.

If so I am in for one and I Have a Shadow JM-07 Pro white.

Mr.BrightLights,

 

Would you care to elaborate more on your impressions of this light? Would you care do a review? Even just a mini review? We need more attention on these 26650 lights because they're great candidates to double as 3 x AA lights. If this host was capable of that I'd be all over it!

The driver says 3AA on it.    Wink

So the host fits 3 X AA then? If I can get 3 AA batteries in this thing then it shall be mine!

 

Well, you need about 24 mm 28 mm at the very least to fit 3 AA batteries, which is smaller slightly larger than the 26 mm width of the 26650 battery. After factoring in a little extra tolerance for the battery carrier (space between the batteries, not carrier wider than the batteries) and fitting the AA batteries you'd be cutting it pretty close if the tube is designed to fit the 26650 very snugly. 

 

EDIT: I goofed with my original measurement. Must have been inadequate lighting. Yeah.. that's it Wink

The battery is not snug side to side , the battery wiggled quite a bit actually , there isalot of tail cap threading as well which was nice and the aprons hoke the battery very snug so no jiggle when tail cap is snug, unfortunately I don't own a aa holder ;(

I don't have one. I would just build one once I have the flashlight in my hand and have the specs. Would you mind measuring the inside diameter of the tube as precise as you can? I'm really curious now!
