Oh yes it is....

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/200855317025? ... 1423.l2649

These look very similar to the DX one's, a lot cheaper and they're in the UK

Anyone bought any? The battery pack looks pretty clunky though...

Looks pretty much the same (even the box) as the one I bought from DX a few years ago for 50 quid.

Mine is a P6 LED tho, this is an xml-t6 which is a bit better (beam pattern and brightness) afaik.

I'm sure there was some on ebay with a pink bezel for £8 recently......

yes, I have 2 sets, but list the battery pack on a rooty down hill section, as the strapping is crap. However, a quick bodge should fix that. Not tried them in the wet yet, but they work well

The battery pack isn't too bad. I sliding into a slice of old inner tuber to waterproof it, and it fits under the seat at the rear between the saddle rails. Excellent battery life, no complaints considering it cost pocket money.

I use two of these (one on helmet, other on handlebars) for commuting to and from work day or night, rain or shine. They've worked flawlessly in the six months ive had them, the only customisations being wraping the battery packs in black heat shrink tubing to waterproof them (though I'm sure cling film would do the same job) and also buying a wide angle lens (£5 on ebay) for the handlebar mounted light to spread the beam pattern across the road surface. I even run a magicshine MJ-818 at the rear which is split off the battery from the handlebar light, I only find I need to recharge the batteries once a week. They certainly get the thumbs up from me :)
