Quality dropped but prrice remained – SuperFire Flashlight 9V BLACK Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Price is still affordable but hass lots of issues with this batch of three that I received.
Cons:
The Quality of this product has dropped in comparison to the 3 other batches that I bought a few months back. The diameter of the inner tubing is too large and using unprotected 16340s will cause a lot of rattling in the tube. Two of the UltraFire models that I received had a spacer to separate the Xenon module and the batteries, however the contact points for the batteries to the Xenon module is just a low quality metal rivet which opens up in a flowery form and is a very lousy electrical conductor.
I had to screw the head of the Xenon module to a sweetspot and could not screw the head to fully tighten otherwise the Xenon module would not light up.
Other:
Bought SKU6090 to swap between LED and Xenon for extended battery life. Had been doing this since I bouught my first batch of lights.
Bottomline:
Hopefully DX can inform the manufacturer to buck up on their quality. I dont mind receiving UltraFire or SuperFire units but the quality should be better than now.
