EXACTLY the same as http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/360477864104? ... 226wt_1398
Same charger, battery pack, headstrap, all he's done is get an orange wash, a bag couple of tatty boxes and a bit of foam for only 60 quid more
I don't think he's done a lot of reasearch just taken a few photos and spent 5 minutes on the net.
Edit, been using mine (9 quid) every day/night since I got it, never failed been out in the pissing rain for the last few day no problems. What people don't seem to realise most of the stuff coming out of China is made for named brands and as such the quality is really getting up there and those components are then used in unbranded/no name items.
The whole of the 'proudly made in the US of A' thing is a load of crap mostly they are chinese manufactured components ASSEMBLED in the US, this gives the company the right to say 'Made in the USA'.
I think too many people are waaaay overthinking this. All this talk of thermal runaway and but what if what if !!!!! Oh my god THERMAL RUNAWAY !!!!!!!!!!!
You're more likely to get knocked off your bike riding in traffic.
As with most people who use BLOCK CAPITALS, you then say something that is completely wrong. The spec of the light you linked to is in no way the same, even if the lamp housing may be similar. The batteries are clearly different, ditto the battery charger. You simply won't get good batteries nor a good charger for that money. The Fluxient system has a two year warranty, which itself is a sign that the maker is confident in the quality and reliability of what they are offering. Your light has a six month warranty, which is a sign that the maker is not confident in the quality and reliability of what they are offering.
And to say that Jim has only done five minutes work on his website is just silly. I would agree that more could be done, but he has done detailed luminescence tests on all of the lamps he lists, plus tests on any number of named batteries. And I haven't even looked at his work on diving torches. It is undoubtedly a substantial body of work, and I haven't seen anything to rival it.
Clearly you're right to say that a lot of what is coming out of China is very good, and makes the US brands look stupidly expensive. However to extend that to say that everything that comes out of China is good is clearly not right. The point about China is that it's a vast unregulated market producing a lot of trash and a lot of good stuff. The advantage of dealing with somebody like Jim/Torchy is that by doing all that testing, he can help us tell the wheat from the chaff.
