i think they look good!
i’m not sure, but i think i’ve seen them somewhere else as well, a little bit cheaper?
wouldn’t mind reading a review of one, to see if it’s worth the money asked for it…
(i already have some aaa-lights, so i don’t really need/”need” another one…)
I thought they were nice too, I ordered the purple one on the day of first appearance (the black one was not listed yet), and two weeks later I received a mail from dx that it was on backorder. It was the same day that the blsck one appeared on the dx site, so I changed the order to the black one. And yesterday I got the mail that it was on backorder. So dx lists lights that they do not have. Well, I will just wait for it to come now.
This is not my common experience with dx though, I have bought many new listed lights from them that I received fast.
How bright is it in comparison to a Sipik SK68 and does the brightness change from Li-Ion to normal AAA?
Works on AAA alkaline: high, almost high, strobe. Output is less than ITP A3 (xpg R5) but throw is better (because of bit wider and smooth reflector and of xpe).
Also works fine on EfestIMR: high, high, high with faint strobe , nice fat output with really good spot.
Bezel is SS . Reflector is aluminium, under the reflector is a insulating/centering piece of plastic that does the job well, no pill, led board sits on a black anodised shelf that is part of the body, driver needs a tiny solder blob in the middle of the battery+ pad to fit the flat top Efest battery. The o-ring that seales the head from the body needs to be thinner, even if lubed well the head twists too stiff for comfort. The spring at the bottom of the tube is stiff and short (good for conductance) and can be reached because the tail cap can be screwed off for some reason.
It works well enough stock, and also I think it is a nice host: everything is servicable and I see no major desgin flaws.
A few days ago, I did a mod with the Ultrafire LZZ-06, in the post are also a few more pictures of the light (driver, pill).
Just placed an order for one of these, looks like it’ll make a handy little addition to my laptop case
Just received mine, and it has at least 3 modes.
High , Low (actually medium) and strobe.
Switching between modes is not so easy, as it stays in the same mode often..
Need to figure out if more lube will help, or maybe less..
Edit1: Oh..I just reread Jozz s post, saying that the oring is a little too thick.
Not bad for under $8
Edit2: I just cut the spring a little and it helped somewhat. Probably a different oring would improve it even more.
How did you get it under $8 is there a coupon, looks like a handy little light
Use their 10% coupon to get it for around 7,80
coupon is ledwallbuys14
click on Buy Now... close the paypal page, bo back to cart, and add the coupon.
Just received mine. I can only find two modes - high and strobe, but it’s impressively compact and very bright on an UltraFire 10440 (blue).
Gets hot quick though!
If you look carefully, there is an 'almost high' as well, between high and strobe
(just started modding my second one :-) )
Got one too.
I wouldn’t use 10440 though, as it (like mentioned) gets hot, which is not light but heat…
It’s always a surprise which mode you’ll get…
Mostly it starts on high though.
The screwable tailcap has no reason to be screwable…
It's light if it gets hot enough. You never heard of incandescent flashlights?
Decided I needed one of these until the Walbuy's coupon didn't work and I noticed they now charge for shipping.
You can get one from AliExpress for $5 in different colors.
And you will probably have better luck than buying from WB. I haven’t received mine yet, as the logistics company the seller have used messed up the shipping. I got a refund though and he resent me the light anyway as a compensation for inconvenience.
Nice find. Thank you Pregulla :)
EDIT: Gonna take my chances. Aliexpress has covered me in a past non-delivery. Ordered a set of 3 black.
I haven't seen a driver diameter here or in djozz's mod thread. Anyone know of a good replacement driver for Ni-MH usage?
EDIT2: Anyone know if this driver will fit?
I did a second mod on the LZZ-06 (https://budgetlightforum.com/t/-/25476), the driver size is mentioned there. It is 13mm, so the nanjg 102 should fit :-) .
Excellent. Thank you djozz.
P.S. Can't believe I forgot about that second mod. It's so cool.
