Help picking a light for under $50 for my dad shipped from the USA
Hello everyone. Smile My dad called me and he wants a light like mine for outside around his house. I am looking for a 504B, SF L2P light with 3 modes from lo/med/hi and orange peel reflector. I am looking for a charger and 18650 cells. I also want it from the US meaning I do not have to wait a month to get it to him. Also a smooth bezel at the front, no attack bezel. Sure I can put a light together like this from Manafont, but who knows when it will get here to the US. Can you help me with ideas and options here? Thanks for the help. Smile

I am looking at Tmart to see what they have. Some of their items ship from New York. Amazon has some stuff but it seems the light you order is not the light that you get. It says it is a 3 mode but you get a 5 mode according to the reviews. I have Prime and can get the light in a couple of days. Smile

Look on light hound, they have a solar force that will work.

Don't have a light to recommend, but want to say it's good to see you posting - been awhile.  I'm subscribed to your blog, but haven't seen a post in awhile.

Good luck with the light hunt.  I'd agree with scaru - check lighthound, or edcplus, or sbflashlights

Thank you for subscribing to my blog. I do need to update things there. Thanks for reminding me. Smile I am doing the shopping for my dad and he is sending me the money to pay me back for the light I get him. Smile

I'll second this suggestion

Tmart isn't a bad idea either for fast shipping maybe  a hd2010 and a charger ..batteries i'd get from Kumabear

or this  jetbeam

How ‘bout this one?

http://www.lighthound.com/Lighthound-CR-2-Cree-XM-L-LED-Flashlight-2xCR-123-or-1×18650_p_4094.html

Its a LightHound rebranded Balder, XM-L, 3 mode, can run on 18650 or CR123s. LH stocks several decent chargers for < $20 which doesn’t leave much $$ for batteries, sorry.

The light at Lighthound is out of stock. DOH. Hmmmm this is harder than I thought it would be to try and do it all for under $50….light, charger, and batteries in an XML with low/med/hi.
