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!
The dinodirect.com webpage still says "TC4".It seems to be clearly listed as SS now, no sign of the TI model.
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.:sigh:
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.
Turn on by fully tightening the head/bezel against the body. The light is off when the bezel is loosened slightly.
Light comes on in Med output to start. To select a different level, twist the Mi X6 off and then back on again within 1 second. This will advance to the next level in the following repeating sequence: Med > Lo > Hi > Strobe.
There is no memory mode.
Yeah, I considered that, but all of them start with a single F followed by a four digit number, or double F followed by a three digit number, so it seemed like that would result in a max of only 10998 units made, unless they expanded it. Not really important, as I do like the light, but just curious. Thanks.That's likely a serial number.
