    I ordered the TR-J12. Lets see if it will be delivered in the next few weeks. Hoping to get it for christmas, but most likely not.

    Hi Nuppi

    I placed 4 orders on wednesday, and 2 have already shipped. Surprising because it's Dx.'s busy season.

    So maybe there's a chance that we'll get them by Christmas. :)

    NO! I don't know why DX screwed up the site so badly.
    Ask them.

    Perhaps DX is just a little above making up LEDs that don't exist. Cree's arrays don't look like that LED and "SWC" cannot be found on its web site. "REAL"? No. But it might really be s...

    BTW, goodbye spammer.

    Received my flaslight today!
    Surprisingly fast delivery.

    First impression is good :)
    I loaded it up with 2x18650 batteries, what difference would the third battery do?

    How about 26650 batteries, what would be the benefits of using those?

    Thanks.

    Nuppi; Sorry for the long delay in my response, but I was away for a little while.

    A third 18650 or 2 26650's would give you longer runtimes, and probably little or nothing in the way of additional brightness.

    Okay thanks.
    I indeed noticed that with 2x18650 the runtime is very modest.
    So gonna put in one extra of those or get some 26650 which seem to have loads more amperes.

    Earlier today I was handed a copy of National Geographic April 2003, because it has in it an article about caving. You'll never guess what photo leads the story...

    I'm going to take a wild guess and say it's the one in the beginning of this thread, that I thought was from an Indiana Jones movie. Do I win anything. :)
