    I just saw the most miraculous flashlight on the planet. Copied and pasted from another site. vv

    Ultrafire CREE XM-L T6 3600LM Zoomable LED Flashlight 2x18650

    A SINGLE led, zoom light with BATTERIES INCLUDED. And you won't believe the price. $14.99. With FREE SHIPPING.

    I really wish I could name the site, just so people know not to buy anything there

    I thought I'd seen ridiculous exaggerations before, but that site takes lying to the ultimate and than some. :O
    NO! I don't know why DX screwed up the site so badly.
    Ask them.

    AMAZing!
    What's up with the scrubbed LED driver IC markings?
    What are they trying to hide?

    LOL If you mean what I think you mean, then nope. I've never seen them lie THAT bad.

    It's a Chinese site that I only checked once before, and left as soon as I saw similar lights rated at 2200lm. The only reason I checked again is because their ads keep popping up on my screen and I couldn't resist a peek at this technological breakthrough.

    Cree must have been keeping it a secret. ;)

    They were the first hit on google. And they also claimed 3600LM! I guess they don't police their suppliers as much as they used to.

    The worst I ever saw there was 2200 lm.

    I guess they're trying to keep up with the Jones'es. If you can't beat 'em, out-lie 'em. lol

    Apparently so. I know it happens but when they lie that blatantly it's still a little shocking. They even state the LED is a T6 bin. But it has two battery adapters included, not two batteries. They just allow the use of 18650s instead of 26650s.

    I think it emphasises what a good job Janmee and his department do weeding out the fraudulent claims for the torches on DX.
    Remembering 30 years.
