    When you check out on eBay, you can add a message to the seller. I just asked him to include the waterproof screw type connectors. I emailed him earlier and he said it was no extra charge.

    I didn't ask, mine came with a spare lead that has the screw connector.

    Can anyone yell me which charger to use for this battery?
    I have the following chargers. The one on the left came with my YinDing Duo clone. The one on the right is from my MagicShine light.

    They will both do the job, the left one will be a little bit slower and the right one will be about double faster...

    Re: User review: YINDING YD-2XU2 (Gemini Duo clone)

    Next dumb question from a know-nothing like myself... Before I cut the lead from my YinDing Duo clone, can someone tell me which wire connects to the red wire and which one goes to the black?

    I'm going to assume red to red and black to blue?

    You need a multimeter to find out the battery wires polarity. The red may be + but you need to be sure.

    Fresh out of multimeters. There has to be someone on this board that replaced the lead on their YinDing Gemini Duo clone... Anyone?

    The guy at batteries plus was worthless. What do I need to do to determine which wire to solder to which? Can anyone help me out?

    The battery says "red inside + and black outside -".

    What exactly did I get?

    Ok, so I just got two lights from Fasttech. One has a lens gasket and is soldered much better with standard machine screws holding it together. It also has a slight greenish hue when on (seems a touch brighter). The other has no lens gasket appears to be re-soldered (poorly), has standard philips head screws and projects a whiter light. So how badly did I get screwed over here? What would you do to fix it? Also wondering if its normal for a fully charged battery to set the button LED color to red directly after turning it on?

    You need to add the gasket and change the wires optionally. These seem to be soldered ugly and may fail overtime. ... and check the driver side also At least they seem to have the same optic.

    Hi, I'm new here and instead of splicing power cable why not opne up light and solder new lead directly? Is cable too short? Anyway that's what I'd do.

    So, can anyone tell me if this light is still a good light as original poster reviewed or has light changed (cheaper mfg.) as to make it not worth the price. I have a Gemini Duo and want to get another so I have bar and helmet lights. I've read the entire post and saw the links to other reflectors/lens so I could modify one of the lights.
    A few of the newest posts have been from people complaining of quality issues, changes in parts, does anyone know where I could get the Yinding like the one reviewed or are they long gone? Thanks

    In my experience the light you get this week from China will most likely be different than the one you get next week.

    my yinding does that on occasion. solution is unplug then plug back in and repeat until you get it to go green

    I think it detects low power instantly from the thing being connected, and triggers the low batt function too early. it should have a delay on that circuit. anyhow, mine does that once in a while and if I reconnect it, it will go green eventually and good to go.

    apparently returns are being recycled

    no one knows for sure wtf is going on

    I happened to get I think one of the 'perfect originals' but now they are all over the place. only thing consistent is the body shape, and circuit board inside says YinDing on it. otherwise it's all been changing around.

    what I say original:

    translucent white silicone gaskets
    TIR lenses
    quality internal paste and soldering job
    allen screws not stripped

    What surprises me is that some people don't seem to understand that when buying cloned lamps that nothing is set in stone. If you want something more concrete you buy a brand name lamp. Why do you think when the Yinding came out they were referred to as "Duo" clones? Didn't surprise me at all when the internal design was changed.
