Re: U2-style (Kai variant)

I wonder if this light is the same as the new dx cree light?

Nope, its different both in terms of form and output.
The only similarity is its 2 stage output via tail cap.

Edited: Sorry for the confusion. The "new" U2 style on DX is the same as the one on kaidomain.com

Yup, its less bright. Full review will have to be done later cos i the light i recieved has some manufacturing defects, so im sending it back.

Did a quick beamshot comparison.

I don't think any one got the new "8 watt" Cree from DX yet, so no comparisons with that one yet, and the U2-Cree(older one) is cheaper anyways

Sorry i misread ur previous post, i thought u were refering to the Eastward YJ. Yes u are right, it's the same light as the "new" one on DX.

@ Gunner12

The exact same "new" style on DX has actually be available from kaidomain.com for sometime already and i received mine yesterday.

I already posted some quick comparison beamshots on www.lightreviews.info
It's not as bright as the Eastward YJ version, even tho the description stated on DX says otherwise.

Ok, I didn't know that.
Now I know exactly which ones I'm getting, C2 OR the U2 Cree.

Great reviews by the way :goodjob:
