1xCR123 flashlight with magnetic selector ring

It means they copied the specs of the SR3? Wonder what the hardware part of it is.... haha I dont see a part that could move in the clone.. what appears to be heatsink fins could be just that.. heatsink fins.

Of if those are part of the moving ring, then the torch does'nt have a much improved heatsink area over normal torch bodies.

I’m inclined to believe those fins are just the ring and it has lousy cooling. I still want one though. :wink:

Hope it's as good as these 18650 and 16340

They look like the exact same thing only pricier.

I just ordered the second one too. Too po fo a (real) niteco.


I've questioned the sr3 alot and considered selling it a couple of times but it's well made and has a few features that are just nice .. one is the fact it face plants well ..I;m sorry but I'm getting tired of touching a light and having it fall over and take out my whole collextion like dominos . the bigger reflector makes for a nicer beam and it's built really well .I had to buy these just to see . if the 18650 tube fits the sr3 it would be a miracle.. one can hope .

But they come in a gift box with a charger and a battery.

Did you order one from them? they don’t state the shipping charges up front.

Foy, where did you order yours? the original link or the one with the gift box, battery and charger? If the latter, how much was shipping? I’d like to orde r some as gifts from the latter but they don’t tell you shipping prices until after you place the order.

“Cooling fins” on the real SR3 are just the selector ring too. Shouldn’t be any worse at cooling than the real thing.

Johnny - I ordered this one. http://www.buyincoins.com/details/led-cree-q5-magnetic-control-switch-flashlight-torch-2-product-4147.html And shipping was free.


the last site is expensive shipping expect about 5$ a light to ship each one breaks on shipping happen at about 50 pounds ..meaning there are no shipping deals

True...... The V10R is still the ideal torch interms of thermal management! The emitter/star sits on the aluminium block which forms the heatsink fins and the fins are separate to the ring.

Regardless, you still make a good point, the SR3 isnt any better... The sheer size I guess is itself a helping factor.

I think the real thing just isn't over driven ... real simple ..maybe too simple

and it has real mass..

The tube by the way doesn't fit the nitecore . if it did it would have been worth 3 times the light just for the tube .One can hope :p

Hoping mine come today or tomorrow. Seeing others get theirs before me is like being the last kid picked for teams in gym class. Who all got their's already?

I got mine, the cr123 version and i quite like it. Note of caution do not take it apart in hand otherwise youll end up searching for hours for the tiny magnet and the steel ball inder the selector.

Decently bright. It is a single mode multimode light. Can act both ways. Unfortunately a forward clicky was not present.

I havent received mine either, and today is holiday here so only next week can I expect to receive it

Budgeteer, so does yours light up with low mode selected? Does it have 6 selectable ring positions, too?

Double yes. :)

Actually it did when the battery was 4,19V but after some use it does not start in low... :/

Got a 18650 one! Thanks for sharing!
