Alone the “way” from FT’s ‘Shipped’ status to Singapore Post’s ‘Information Received (This is not an acknowledgment of the physical receipt of the stated Registered Article)’: 5 days.
Another 2 days for shipment: ‘Despatched to overseas (Country code…)’.
This was 2.5 weeks ago.
Since that day it’s somewhere between unknown/random location and customs.
Pretty quick indeed. To central Europe it took a little bit more time. FT shipping information 28th March and than:

I received my SC01 the other day and finally got around to playing with it. I like it a lot! I've only got an NiMh in it now, but plan a Lithium Primary for it for glovebox duty eventually. Boy is this thing small! Even after seeing pics it was smaller than I expected! PWM doesn't bother me and the tint, like TomE says is a typical "cool white"- no hint of green or purple that I see. Very impressed for the price!
I got 3 more SC03 from fasttech today, damn… they’re fast, received it after 9 days including weekend!
I also got 2 of these Yupard mini 16340 lights although there’s nothing mini about them
they’re 22mm taller than SC03 BUT it can out throw SC03 for about 1/3 of the price of SC03
definitely worth for the price I paid for them less than $6 :bigsmile:

I received the Yupard today and it has a purple colored beam, also didn’t realize the lens was plastic. It looked like it had a clear protective plastic cover on it, so I tried to remove the plastic….ehhhh…scratched the cheap plastic lens. Stole a glass one off another cheap light and now it looks better, but no where near as nice of tint as the 14500 model form the same seller.
But, like you said, for less than $6 I am happy.
It was my first aliexpress purchase, but will not be my last.
DayLighter, that Yupard mini almost made me puke seeing that beamshot. Yuky purple, lol! But.... do you think its would be hard to mod with an XM-L2 and Qlite driver (can it fit?), at maybe 1A-1.5A? Also, how is the build quality, compared to the Solarstorm? It looks just as good as the Solarstorm to my eyes. Thanks for the pics
Finally got mine yesterday. I guess 18 days to Texas isn’t terrible, I’ve seen far worse.
I checked mine and it draws 37.4uA when off. That means my AW IMR 16340 would be drained in about 1.7 years. :bigsmile:
No need to lock out the tailcap on this light. I think I need another one.
