    What happened to Gear Bests Yinding lights?

    Anybody know why Gear Best doesn't sell the Yinding lights anymore? They were a great inexpensive light.

    ...But they'll only ship to France, Germany, Italy, Spain or Portugal.

    IMHO the next best small, inexpensive light to a Yinding right now is the BL2S from Kaidomain:

    Build quality is not as good as Yinding, isnít user serviceable AFAIK, lacks fade-between-modes and the power button is not a match for Solar Stormís but for the price of $15.98 itís a steal.

    Reason for my love is the XM-L2 U3 2 color bin. Ordered the 4000K and itís a rich warm white light, makes all colors pop unlike any other NW bike lamp.

    Just a heads up, the Yindings gearbest currently sells are NOT the improved second version with the XM-L2, but they're actually leftover 1st generation lights as far as I can tell.

    I took mine apart and found old XM-L U2 leds as well as some other issues (rattling lenses, inadequate amount of thermal paste).

    Still a decent light I guess, just don't expect it to match the description. I bought it because I read the topic about them on this forum, and was quite disappointed to find out it's not the actual XM-L2 version.
