    Of course you're right. I clearly need to brush up my reading skills

    Anyhow, it was the only place I could find it without battery so I'm happy.

    Are these things all the same and coming from the same place? Are they clones of clones of clones? They all say "Yindling" and are XML U2s. This says it doesn't come with the battery but is ~$7 less than the one on Fasttech or DX.

    I think the cloned body is just only one, with the outside a bit reworked and the inner electronics can be absolute wilderness (that can be a clone of clone of clone of ...) :-)

    I started a thread called "2013 Budget Light Shootout" to try and get info like this in one place. That would be a great place to post it. Budget lights reviews are often scattered

    I had a weird problem with my Duo clone last night.

    Indicator went from green to red, and within seconds, the light shut off.

    I assumed battery was dead (although it had been fully charged, and we were only about 1hr 40m into the ride).

    I swapped to a spare battery, light turned right on and I finished the ride.

    Today I thought, "gee seems like a fresh battery should have lasted longer then it did", so I plugged it back into the stock battery, set it in front of a fan, turned it on high, and it ran for a little over an hour!!

    So then I thought maybe it overheated last night and shut itself off. It was kind of warm (low 50's), and it did happen during a climb, where maybe it wasn't getting optimal air moving over it.
    But if that were the case, I wouldn't think it would turn right back on when I swapped to another battery. Or would it?

    What do you guys think?

    You could have tried just unplugging and replugging the first battery into the light. Maybe when you unplugged the battery it reset the circuit. Or maybe it's the quality of the original battery? The voltage of the cells dropped because of the high current, causing the light to think it was almost dead? I don't know.

    This sudden turn-off is not a good situation.

    X2. I've noticed this happening with my Olympia's running off a 4 cell in high. But mine just drops down to lower setting. I would suggest get quality packs and see what it does. My gemini duos run fine on high with a 4 cell unless the overheat protection kicks in and drops down to a lower setting.

    Yinding goes from green to red to blinking red.
    It might be that the overheat protection kicked in and turned it off.
    If the body was too hot to hold it in your hands for a few seconds, then it overheated.
    As I mentioned before. Dont run it on high when not moving at least 10km/h. That goes for all lamps including branded.

    Could be onto something there. I noticed a quirk with mine, if you quickly plug battery into the light -- even if the battery is freshly charged -- it will blink red. But if you slowly plug in the battery, the switch illuminates green.

    I tested original Yinding battery and its capacity is around 3500mAh. Green indicator light goes red at around 6,2V. Charger charges battery pack to 8,22V and when charging completly empty batteries it overheats and alternating on/off (red/green). I drilled some holes to add some cooling and we will see if it gets better.

    Anyone purchased a yinding recently? If so from where?
    I ordered from fasttech, although the site states its in stock. My order is showing as restocking as of mid last week!
    Dx and wallbuys appear to be out of stock of this in black.

    I feel I may have missed out on this little gem.

    Fasttech seem to be having issues with shipping as well. Hongkong Post - Notices - Delay In Outbound Air Mail Services .

    I recently ordered without battery (to replace a drowned MJ872 light head) from this alibaba seller Latest Unique Design Cree XML 2*U2 Bike Light headlight/lamp Front Light 2300 LM 4 mode -in Bicycle Light from Sports & Entertainment on Aliexpress.com
    They shipped in a couple of days but I'm still waiting delivery.

    Just throw that thing in the trash and buy one from action led.
