I am aware of the seven modes as I carefully read the description Richard gave for the lights when he offered them for sale. At the price for a modified light with it’s features I consider it a steal. I also have two M6 lights in the same shipment, a level 1 and a level 2. Interesting to compare the three.
I also have a stock M6 and both a SRK and a Securitying 3 LED stock lights to compare and play with. Both the SRK and Securitying are 5 mode lights with 3 light levels plus strobe and SOS so presumably recent production. At least they do not rattle when shaken like one SRK pictured in a thread on CPF. The rattling one also does not lockout due to bad or missing anodizing on the threads and the machining detail is very visibly different.
So far of my 4 parallel cell stubby lights I think that the BlackShadow Terminator shows the best construction. For the price it normally costs it should!

IMR cells will produce even more, but I haven’t tried that. I don’t want to take a chance blowing the light. All LED’s are still on the stock aluminum MCPCB (copper would be better) and I fear the copper traces on it couldn’t stand the extra current. Others here have gone way beyond what is in this light.
My problem is that I do not necessarily trust some sellers to actually be selling what they say they are. In other words, maybe there are now fake 70N02’s in the market place. If he bought a fake 70N02 he could end up with an FET that offers no benefit over the one now in place.
