    Default R2 P60 $15.50 @ DX!

    Just FYI, the R2 P60 drop-in is available at dealextreme for $15.50. Not much info there, of course. Input range 3.7-18v.

    *edit* I see it was posted in the drop in module list already.

    I just went for it! I have a feeling that the price is going to go up later.

    any ideas on brightness or runtime? 117-225 is a big spread.

    Vikas, please let us know how it compares to the Q5 0-100% 3-mode (actually 15 modes in 6 groups) which, according to Mev at LightReviews, is as bright as a Fenix T1 and has great runtimes. It is my understanding that the R2 isn't driven as hard as this module and may not be as bright.

    +1 vote to merge this thread with the other one.

    My order was placed on 3/27
    Shipped from DX on 3/29
    Hong Kong tracking says it left HK on 4/1

    So mines somewhere on/over the Pacific by now.

    I don't have a Q5 for comparison... only a P4

    And I think it's the exact same module, so I bought a few from them!

    What about the reflector?

    Is it made of aluminium or is it just plastic?

    I think this one might be one of the brighter ones for under $20-. It's a bit complicated though.

    Not sure about Solarforce.

    Do let us know if they're actually in stock as claimed.
