I have all three versions and I carry one of them all day long hanging from my neck with a microfiber string, rotating them regularly. It' one (well actually 3 ...) of my favorite EDC lights. :)

Hey guys:
Does your Mi X6 Ti came with spare o-ring and metal loop?
Got mine last week and no spares included on the package.

Yes, my Ti came with a ziplock bag containing a split ring and spare O-ring. I never use the included split rings because I have stash of nice ones but this one actually looks like a quality one.

I really don't care about the split ring, as I have some nice rings lying around, but I'll need to find a correct size O-rings just in case.
Thanks for your replies!

I LOVE the MIX6! I neck wear mine using a very small swivel quick release clip on a necklace i have worn for 25 years. BTW, you never have to see strobe if you choose not. Thanks for the review selfbuilt.

I ordered a Ti version a couple of weeks ago from Dino Direct. It arrived today, but it was a SS model. I am not sure what to do, as I love it and it was only $38. I could lodge a dispute with PayPal, but I read on a forum that some people send their goods back and never receive a refund, while the seller says it was never received. I don't really want a refund, as I'm attached to the little thing. It really is cute, like a puppy dumped on my doorstep. And yes, it had a ziplock bag with a spare o-ring and the split ring

when exactly did you order it from Dinodirect? i got mine from Dinodirect too and it was a real Titanium version, others reported the same positive experience (forolinternas). maybe the seller doesnt take too much care to differentiate between the two versions, both look alike after all!

check your pm, i have found some external ref which should prove satisfactory.
in any case keep the SS. not worth sending it back to DD.

Thank you!
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.

I am so jealous! After a bit of correspondence DD have agreed to refund $20, so my Klarus Mi X6 SS cost me about US$20. I agreed of course, but I still wish I had the Ti (I hope I am not starting to sound like a spoilt kid - I'm just a hopeless flashaholic) :mecry:

With the coupon code (anyone interested pm me!) the price is US$33.99, and then you can apply your other usual discounts (Dinopoints, giftcards) to reduce this even more. A great price for the titanium version!!
DD have agreed to refund $20, so my Klarus Mi X6 SS cost me about US$20.
congrats to you too to the generous refund! Think of it, "your price difference" between the MiX6 SS and the MiX6 Ti is exactly these $20! Anyone in this thread would be happy and grateful to get the MiX6 SS for "about US$20" like you did :)

Thanks HKJ! selfbuilt had measured 16.2g (with or without mini split ring is unclear), official specs is 18g, and i have measured 17g (with or without split ring doesnt make a difference on my kitchen scale!). Compared with a iTP A3 (1st market release, aluminum) and its 9 grams, the MiX6 SS is almost double as heavy and i can certainly feel its heft.

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 :(
