  • It works?

    posted by goninanbl00d on 09:52:48 G6T 11/06/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It's a switch. It's cheap. It fits the Ultrafire C1 host like it's supposed to. Oh, and it also tailstands, which is convenient if you need that sort of thing.

    Cons: Something inside the switch (one of the springs) sounds like it's going to give out any second. The switch also doesn't seem to like anything above 1A being put through it, it seems.

    Other: It works. For how long, I can't say. And how well depends on what you're using it for.

  • useful tailcap to replace

    posted by SergioRGP on 12:59:37 G4T 20/04/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Very easy to replace. YOU only have to test the flashlight diameter in order to be sure the diameter is the one you need. very very good prize

    Cons: If you fail to measure the correct diameter if will not fit your flashlight but you can disarm it and inser the new switch inside the old tailcap and it will work. As always the delivery time is excessive if you need to fix the flashlight quicky

    Other: I am very glad to fix my flashlight with this prize

  • Where else can you buy one?

    posted by Alejo on 11:49:10 G12T 26/12/2010 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: If you need one of these --and I did because the old one was not working--where else can you get one? It is this or let the torch sit useless.

    Cons: I remove the lanyards because they get in the way but the first time I drop a torch in the water (snow, off a building, etc) I guess I will learn to appreciate using one.

    Other: Given my history with clickies: I should have bought a spare.

  • Perfect fit on solarforce L2

    posted by smelly on 08:20:55 G7T 20/07/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: As it says in the title this is a perfect fit on my solarforce L2 so presumably it will fir Surefire torches too.
    It is a reverse clickie with lanyard and can tailstand.

    Cons: The cons are not too serious. The anodising does not match the Solarfore. It is a matt black whereas the Solarforce is more semi gloss finish.
    I removed the switch from the tailcap to have a look and and the switch does appear a little flimsy but it does work well in my torch with a battery draw of 1.5 amps.

    Other: A good cheap replacement switch for solarforce L2 and true Surefire clones.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Wow , what a great after market tail clicker . Mine was firm , positive and very responsive .

    Cons: Doesn't match my Solarforce L2 well , just a little too mat black .
    That silly 500 character thing getting in the way again , were talking about a $3.50 tail clicky here , just how much is there to say ?

    Other: Other tail Clickers start from $8 , this one is $3.50 + free shipping .
    Its fantastic for the price , why would you compare it to products costing 3 times as much or more ?

    Pros: ACCEPTABLE QUALITY,CONVENIENT USAGE,SEEMS TO BE WEATHER RESISTANT(NOT TESTED),CHEAP PRICE,FITS SF G2.GOOD FOR SELF DEFENSE PURPOSE WHEN IMMEDIATE CONSTANT LIGHT IS NEEDED.CAN STAND UP ON FLAT SURFACE.

    posted by dave1960 on 18:09:30 G10T 28/10/2008 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Nice solid feeling reverse clickie in a nice semi gloss black tali cap!
    Seem to pass all the current a Q5 needs!
    Fit 6P and G2 with about 1/16" gap (covers o-ring well)
    Allow wiggly tail stand with the lanyard attached, SOLID without.
    Lanyard loop big enough for my hands, and big hands they are! Lanyard feels good.
    Cigar grip or dagger grip both easy.

    Cons: None that I can think of!

    Other: I don't highly recommend many things but I give these things (3 of them) five stars!!!

  • Reverse clicky, tailstands!!

    posted by 1dash1 on 19:21:17 G9T 10/09/2008 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Looking at the discussions, it seems most folks are interested in whether it tailstands and whether it is a reverse clicky. So, I put to rest those two questions in the title. :-)
    Reverse clicky? Yes, very positive feel, reverse click action. (I.e., pushing down on the switch doesn't turn it on, releasing it turns it on.)
    Tailstands? Yes. If you install this tail switch on your flashlight, the flashlight can be stood on end on any flat, level surface. (The rubber tail cap does not stick up above the metal circumference.)

    Cons: It can be used as an intermittent switch by partially depressing the tail cap while the light is turned on. However, it is a "negative intermittent" switch, in that the light is turned off by partially depressing the switch. Worse, the amount of travel is very small before the circuit is interrupted. In my opinion, it is overly sensitive to switch pressure while in the "on" position.

    Other: A good, solid product.
    This is the exact same switch that comes with SKU 14027.
    For those who bought SKU 12325 and want to convert it to a single-mode light, they can use this switch to replace the original 2-mode switch on that light.

  • 6P Tailcap, Rev-Clicky

    posted by kramer5150 on 11:57:38 G8T 14/08/2008 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: -Cheapest way to upgrade a 6P to thumb-click. -Nice heft and solid feel/weight. -Feels as solid/robust as the OEM SF cap. -Raised rim around switch helps prevent accidental activation and protects switch when dropped. -NICE tight engagement with O-ring. -Smooth lanyard hole. -No sharp or jagged edges anywhere. -After some rework (see video) the 6P body contacts the switch pill directly, so there is no electrical conduction through the threads. -The rubber switch boot is water-tight, splash proof at least. I suspect that it is more water resistant than the OEM SF twist cap, and can be cycled on-off while submerged.

    Cons: -Excessive anodize build up on threads. -Fresh out of the box it would not fit on my SF 6P. I had to really torque down on it to get the cap to "plow" through the anodize build up. -Click-switch was really "creaky / sticky" feeling when half pressed. I had to completely take apart the switch pill and place several drops of light oil into the switch to free it up.

    Other: For $3.50, don't expect much and you will be surprised with its feel, fit and heft. A little rework and hand assembly makes it all worth while. It can be easily taken apart and modded. So if you find a higher quality switch-part you can mod it easily. I am happy with this purchase, although I would hesitate to recommend it openly. Its NOT a drop-in replacement, at least mine was not. It took about an hour of fiddling with it to get it to work smoothly.

  • Very good tail cap switch

    posted by wiseone on 04:35:05 G7T 18/07/2008 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: The switch is very well made and fits perfectly on my Solarforce L2 torch. The switch in the unit does not extend out allowing for tail stanidng of the torch it is used on. The wrist strap comes in useful too.

    Cons: non really as it is well made. Only minor criticism is that the finish is matt black which does not match the glossy black color of the SOlarforce torch I use it on.

    Other: Price is good. Well made unit that is a good replacement for faulty 6p tailcaps and also converts a non tail standing torch to one that is.
