Aw shucks, I figure it's time to try something new, so I ordered a Fenix LD41 today. Can I give a link here? I'm not sure I can, so -- look for PM.

Isn't this the way it always works? I got the Fenix cancelled and then got the below email. Guess the joke's on ME! :crackup:

At least the old flashlight still works, and the delay is only about a week.

To all 18650 users - be aware that 3M XP-L won't reach full brightness on 1x18650, it won't be regulated either.

And -- still waiting. No idea when Battery Junction will receive them, so no idea when they will send mine to me. Starting to consider where else I might find one. Hmph.

Finally gave up on Battery Junction, cancelled the order and ordered from Banggood.

The simplest way is with a data-logging light meter and home-made integrating sphere. I provide a general overview of my setup on my Methods page at flashlightreviews.ca

Finally arrived today, just about two months since I decided to buy a new flashlight.

Let me get this straight -- these flashlights are BLISTER PACKED now, and absolutely all the documentation is in Chinese...:thinking:

But it sure puts out some light! And the UI is a bit different, too.

Not bad.

I'm not sure if the OP has updated this review for this newest model, but if he has, he would be able to tell you what the packaging should look like; If not, maybe you could search for another review. Also, you can try contacting JetBeam directly; does it have a serial number?

The packaging looks just like what's in the review for that flashlight, and it has a serial number fairly close to the one in that review, so -- I'm just gonna call it good! :)

This review is over 6 years old now ... I have not seen what the currently shipping Jetbeam 3M looks like.

However, I have recently reviewed the Jetbeam BC25se and RRT26. As you will see in those reviews, packaging has been simplified to a common blister pack look. Overall construction of the newer lights also seems a bit more basic. Hard to describe exactly, but the "feel" is less substantial now.
