direct drive on RCR123? no pwm, like usual?
direct drive on RCR123? no pwm, like usual?
Mine arrived Monday so only took about week from ordering so thanks Ricky.
Very nice light and definately my new EDC.
The light in the pics looks like mine.
I thought I had a one of a kind V3 LOL!
Pls unscrew V3 head and make macro pics of white plastic base.
I want to know if I'm the only one who got it scrached and cracked or this is a common thing with V3 and other L-Power lights.
It seems as though when the inner circle of the white plastic was 'shaped,' part of the plastic around its circumference was cut deeper than other parts. It would appear that these 'cuts' or 'slots' are not purposely made.
I don't know if this affects the V3 in any way. Although it appears if pressure is put on the inner circle, the center circle would push through the white plastic seating.
I guess if you don't press on this piece, there won't be an issue, but I am unclear with that assumption.
No pics, sorry.
Let me know if that is the issue you referenced.
The LED cover and the LED centering plate is suppose to be in good condition without the scratch.
If you rec'd the flashlight with such issue while open box.
Please contact your local dealer or email@example.com for further assists.

In post #37, is what I described an issue, or is this the norm?
I see abras has 2 holes, besides the scratch. Different issue than what I described, which appears to be the norm.

How does the Incendio's throw compare to the Jetbeam RRT-0 and is the low any lower than the low-low of the RRT-0?
I'm Alex, the one who already discussed the problem via e-mail.
So I feel I'm an unlucky one to get a scrached plastic plate.Hi Alex,
We have carried a engineering meeting yesterday about the centering plastic for IncenDio and this will be update in the coming production batch.
So, that all coming IncenDio will use a new centering plate with different material and no more scratched (cracked) plastic.
The new production will be done in 2 weeks.
Also I don't know what are the holes for ? I've thought it was a part of a design.
The flashlight works ok, so it's mostly an unaesthetic issue for me. It's just doesn't look like a $60 light.
Also with the head part off it's easy to damage the emitter, so it's not a fool proof.
Just imagine, you lend V3 to smbd which tries to open battery case but opens the head part instead and touchs the emitter...
I have Fenix E20 where it's possible to unscrew head also, but its emitter is protected by kind of glass dome.
The holes you have in the white plastic are not normal, as I have little indentations where you have the holes. It appears that your holes have been 'punched' through for some reason, while mine have not.
Good to see that piece is getting upgraded.
Hopefully the ones with cracked plastics can get them exchanged.
Pls post here macro pics of how good V3 plate must look.
The plastic must be a very cheap if not the cheapest detail of the light. And there was one damaged one, but instead throwing it away they installed it in the light. Kinda waste-free production.
I cannot post pics now, as I am leaving house. I will try to later. But mine is not how it supposed to be either, I suppose.
The white plastic is very flimsy though, as mine has 2 little slits in it. I thought it was normal, but the more I look at it, it seems as though the plastic was cut through at certain points during production. Maybe the die cutter or whatever it is,applied too much pressure onto the plastic, or something along those lines.
With the above being said, it is pretty nice light, and performs admirably, especially with my R123 feeding it
The rest of the light appear to be made very nicely. As for the flimsy emitter holder, I don't know what effect it would have on the light in the future, but you are right in saying that QC should have noticed there was an issue.
But Rick is making it right, and that is what is Very important, as many companies, and not just flashlight companies, would just keep the problem as it is, and just 'Yes' the customers to appease them, but not do anything about the issue.
In regards to the head unscrewing and showing the emitter, why not? as it is very easy to swap out, if the need arises, like with the emitter holder
The outer plastic plate with 2 holes should not be scratch.
It may due to assembly process.
Once the plate being open at factory, we have to replace a new.
Any user try to mod their light will also cause scratch to it (and then warranty void)
The inner plastic plate is for centering purpose.
So, both cannot be remove.
Refer to LED with glass dome, if you are refer to XR-E.
It is the primary optics of the LED itself.
Any additional optics on top will lower the LED's efficiency.
If the reflector kit is fixed, which means the flashlight cannot be upgrade.

runtime on low please with CR123 and 880 mAh Ultra Fire RCR123
I just got one of these in the R4 version and it is a great light. One problem I have had with it is, I used a 4Sevens CR123A battery in it and the battery got stuck. Lucky I could get the battery out by pushing it out after screwing the switch module out. I haven't tried any other battery brands yet and was wondering if I may have the same problem again with any other brands?
