Recommend to all. Very compact and light weight Cree torch light. 1xAA Ni-Mh or 1x14500 Li-ion works fine. Very low operating voltage, as low as 0.9V. I bought from a chinese girl at only RM28. Can get the same one from http://www.dealextreme.com. I've bought another one from deal extreme about rm31. You can visit the link for products detail http://www.dealextreme.com/p/sipik-sk68 ... 4500-39585 .
You can purchase torch light and torch light accessories like DC-DC converter board, 3-5 mode controller boards, glow silicon rubber tail caps, glass lens, 18650, 14500, cr123 li-ion batteries/chargers and many more from deal extreme. Free delivery by register mail if purchase more than 1 item but delivery time is too long, about 2-3 weeks.
You have to very patient if you really want to purchase from deal extreme. I hope you guy can enjoy cheap and quality products from deal extreme.

I don't own the Jetbeam BA and BC series but I have the RRT-1 and RRT-2. They are absolutely reliable and dependable and their finishing is superb. THey are as good if not better than the Fenix; which I have a few of these.

Dont know about Jetbeam B series, but the M1X i had for ~2 yrs (great light to begin with) is still going strong. Agree with redstorm about finishing (reflector & overall) - superb

BTW, i'm a surefire guy b4 jetbeam. After dropping a G3 nitrolon into the tembeling river :fire:, changed to jetbeam to please the flashlight gods... a winning move, i think :thumbsup:

For now, i dun go for crazy bright .
150 - 250 Lumens already enough for me .
I bought a lot of big light before but i decided to sold it .
I like small light , its easy to carry & i dun like torch without clip .
Recently , i bought kuku E Series Tower Module for my surefire E1E & a surefire L1 .
I plan to swap the original L1 emitter to XML Led using the stock driver .
E1E with KuKu E series Tower Module & L1 can use RCR123 battery .
I will post some pics here to share when i receive maybe next week O:)
Enjoy the GPS’s life!

You can get Fenix flashlights cheaply from either Taiwan or China.
On my recent trip to Taiwan, I found a shop below the Taipei MRT station selling Fenix PD20 for approx. $35.00 sin dollar. Even the 100 mW green laser pointer selling for $15.00 only.
