    Agreed! I'm a huge fan of XTAR chargers and have many of their batteries (14500, 16340, 18650, and 26650), as well :D

    [​IMG]
    My XTAR chargers, pictured above, are the VC4 (2), VP2 (2), and 4 of their VC2 Plus chargers.

    I just picked up their new SV2 charger (far right, second row), and am loving it!

    The XTAR Direct store is just a few minutes from where I live. I always deal with Allan. Great service!

    Welcome.
    Well, I have to report this. I received a flashlight from AliExpress. It's the Xtar H3 Warboy. The light itself is awesome, BUT some things will be better if you change them. First, I don't think the flashlight is anodized, I think it's painted in better quality paint, because after 4-5 put on-s/take off-s the THIN clip (the second problem), the black color is gone. Here is the result:

    BTW I have an Olight S1 and I've put on/ take out the clip more than 30 times, and still not a scratch on the flashlight nor on the clip.


    I also checked on your webside the inquiring number or what it is called on the packaging, and it doesn't seem to be fake, and I don't think there are any Chinese fakes of the Chinese real(Xtar, Olight, Fenix, Nitecore, Thrunite etc.) ones.
    The things I like the most are the beautiful beamshot and the neutral white color of the LED.
