I saw that, but also saw that I could get a P7 for $40 shipped on eBay.

Dealextreme is where I get mine. I am moving across to 18650 powered units now since they have such good run times.

I'd be surprised if you can get a genuine P7 for the values quoted and just logged into the site to have a look at the P3 and there was a warning about pirated copies so please take care.

As a volunteer fireman I have used a P7 for a few years now and I love it, while it is not intrinsically safe and has to stay in the truck while wearing BA under certain situations it is a fantastic torch, you will be very happy with it. Mine has been belted and banged around and is still going strong.

I guess we'll find out when it arrives... any month now! he he!
Is there some place to compare/any way to check for genuine?

I have a 6D maglite that someone said was a knock off cause i got it on Ebay... Maglite let me Register it as the serial was genuine! so... not all items and vendors on ebay are shonky.
will be a good to compare the p7 and the maglite . mag lite is a very heavy torch to carry whilst caching.

Looks very similar to the packaging that I got mine in (not saying that is a great indication these days). At the end of the day so long as it works and your happy with it it is all good!

One thing that stands out is I got batteries with mine...

They run on AAA's.
Yeah the ebay seller said he was not allowed to ship batteries as it was too dangerous ( go figure) I have received batteries from other ebay sellers.
there was a space in the packaging for what appears to be for batteries in other online promo shots of the torch.

Probably cheaper to ship without batteries.

The other difference i have noted is, mine has no logo/branding on the 2nd flat surface on the torch barrel. like in the image the word "Coast" is embossed there.
so maybe the're are 2nds, or rejects or unbranded nock-offs.
Very cool torch ( i think i have a torch fetish) and oh so bright. I'll see if i can post some comparison photos of the output compared to my 6D cell Maglite and a 6v dolphin.
but by far the brightest LED light i have ever owned.

I might buy one of these just to use the rechargable AAA's someone accidentally bought instead of AA's #-o
