How many companies make this light the bastid .

I see no mention of Magicshine in that dx listing .Edit apart from on the box silly me:blush:
and Smudge was trawling around for battery bags and in his search had contact with a chinese person who then offered him XML bastid lookalikes .amongst a million other products.

He commented he also wanted some of the magicshine extension cables to be told we are not magic shine and dont make their lights .

Got a couple of samples on the way now .so should have one in bits soon

be interesting to see if the reflector is different to the P7 version as I tried one on an xml and it was not great .

Where the f**k do they pull these 2.4A claims from, their anus? We all know the build/quality (and shipping promises) of Dealextreme, why do they need to make these false claims? Yes, I still buy tons of their crap regardless. :blush: :blush: :idea:

My take on this: I agree, it looks very much like the reflectors used ( and designed for ) the P-7's. If that is indeed the case I expect the beam pattern to be very much " a wall of light" or wide flood to say it differently. Personally I would rather see the beam pattern be either a mix of flood and medium throw or like my KD C8 torch, a nice long throwing central spot.
Can't wait to see some user beam shots.

In order to get the longer throw they're going to have to use a wider reflector ( like in my C8 ). That reflector is about 38mm in diameter and looks deeper than what is used with the P-7's. I don't think one of them will fit in this refitted MS lamp host.

To bad they decided to use the old MS driver as well. To get the most out of the XML you really do need to get the output more near 3A. Still with all things considered, If you don't already own a bar lamp and want one that has lots of flood, this could be just what you've been waiting for. Even at 2.4A it should be a bit brighter than the original P-7 'shines. Looks like they're using the new "coated" battery, hopefully an improvement over the original stuff.

Trout, I know when you get your order in that you'll be doing a beam shot but let us know what you think of the battery as well.
