Yeah, that was a lucky good price. During january they had a coupon for 20% off for orders of +50usd on flashlights.
I was expecting a SS, but I was happy to receive a Ti!
they still have a 5$ off +30usd orders coupon code (have tested it, works!) and i am thinking of buying the Ti edition too.
have you ever measured its weight exactly, without the mini split ring (never trust manufacturer's specs )?
as far as i can tell it's even lighter than the preon P0, amazing!
i am envious now, hehe
I don't have measuded weight yet becouse digital precision balance is at work, and I'm on holidays this week.
Anyway, my MiX6 Ti came without split ring
and yes, they still have it for a great price, 30 eur.
Malo odiat lux (Latin proverb - Evil hates light)
Then again, if we paid less than 20bucks for it, it's nothing to be concerned about -- in the sense of "you get what you pay for" and "if you want it to weigh 6 grams less, then spend additional 20$ to get the Titanium edition" rofl!
additional 20$ to get a "gain" (=loss) of 6 grams? let's get real, everybody!!
I put weight as one key feature, but SS is also good for keychain lights. I hate to see how my keys destroys/wears anodized aluminium flashlights by friction
Great review,just recieved the Ti version 41.00 at Dino.
Really nice aesthetics on this one ,and it works well..thx..kelly
I've been reading up so I could find a good deal and a good dealer. $41 for the Ti is sounding good to me. I was just at their site . Found it in a web search for the Ti model. The search brought it up as the Ti model but when I clicked, it was the s.s. model. I immediately quit looking at them because it sounded kinda' tricky. Maybe I jusy didn't scroll down or something. I'll check 'em again. I have a s.s. neck chain abd didn't want to add anymore weight than I had to.
I went back but could not find the link that had taken me there. I checked the site and couldn't find a Ti version offered. I went to UniqueTitanium.com and got it for $59.95.
I also purchased two of the Ti listed ones from DD and received two SS lights... Took a very long time for them to arrive. :-p
if you know your physics, TC4 is short for a specified titanium alloy.
TC4 is no steel nor stainless steel.
i have contacted their customer service. nothing has changed. they still ship both versions under the same SKU so go ahead Norm if you're interested in purchasing it from them
I've been fooling around with both the Ti and the SS units.
I love 'em. I've drop tested both from 1.5m onto kitchen tiles.
For the (basically) flat drop, both had no probs.
HOWEVER I also choose to do an '""end-first"" drop, butt/keyring-attachment-end down (about 80degrees).
I tried this because I was suspicious of the bottom (-) contact not being a spring: merely looks like sprung-brass-shaving-piggy-tail thingy.
Alas, both lights are now damaged.
I recommend you take my word for it, and don't do your own drop test allowing the butt to hit first.
If I get just the right AAA cell (tallest selection on benchtop), twisty contact (on) is made just before total thread runs all the way in.
With this one caveat, I still love 'em both.
i published a mod on another forum which will make this light butt-fall-proof
