The XM-L2 LED are cheaper as the prices from other shops, but notice the bin. FT has only XM-L2 T6 1B and 1C (both with 16mm, 20mm or without base). The BLF coupon code works and you get the price of $5,41 – 5,87 without a base.

Non-Aff-Link

INTL_Outdoor sells the XM-L2 for about $6,95-9,45 with other bins (T6 1A, T6 0D, T6 E3 Chromaticity group: 3B, 3C, 3A, 3D Tint: Neutral white and T2 E8 Chromaticity group: 8B, 8C, 8A, 8D Tint: Warm white).

Light up the darkness.

I’d noticed that. Hopefully xm-l2 u2 and t6 nw will become available again. I still have a nw saved for whatever special host catches my eye, it could in all honesty be that it ends up in an l2 host. I’ll hit you up for a link buwuve if when I get one Smile

New Products: 3/13/2013

So far they have added 6 products, all flashlight related:
Black shadow terminator
TM15
X-power host (aka. D4 host @fancyflashlights. Better price from fancyflashlights)
Other versions of the 3/5A drivers. Seems to be the same as the ones from intl-outdoor, but slightly cheaper.

Nitecore EA2, 280 lumens, 2x AA, XP-G R5, 5 mode, secondary red SMD LED serves both as an extremely low-power illumination option and also as a status indicator and locator beacon.

Review of selfbuilt about the EC1/2, EA1/2 with many pictures

You know, putting the final price after the promo code is not a good idea.

I think it would be best if this thread listed the advertised price on Fasttech’s website and then say a discount can be had by entering PRICECONTROL without mentioning the final price.

Otherwise, as we have seen, FT’s competitors and even the manufacturers themselves end up creating problems for them that can only hurt us in the long run and could change FT’s ability to continue providing great service at a great price in the future – it could potentially even be an existential threat.

Just a thought!

My name is indy, and I've been a flashaholic since 2004.

I think its quite interesting they have gotten Led Lenser products (H7 P7 today).
Their prices are really good. Especially on P7 (26,3$).

Shipping question…

February 18th, from Fasttech, to the United States. Still not here by March 14. A couple of small orders without tracking numbers have not arrived, while those with tracking have made it (East Coast United States)…

is this normal?

I think so, they’ve mentioned a few times that the non-tracked option can take ages. That’s why they put the ‘highly recommended’ tag on the tracked one.

I’ve been looking up the signs of fakes for those LED lensers they’ve added, simply due to the price being so low. As far as I can tell they are both genuine, but someone else having another look would probably be useful before anyone takes my word for it.

Olight S10 Baton.  I don’t know if they messed up the specs.  This is supposed to have a low-med-high mode group with hidden 0.5 lumen mooonlight and a strobe mode.  High is 320 lumens.  It got a favorable review here.

 

http://budgetlightforum.com/node/13387

 

$32.50 with “pricecontrol” coupon code, $35.14 with “blf” coupon code, $36.99 without any coupon code.  I will not make any money if a coupon code is used, but I’m not sure if someone else will.


The S10 and S20 can go directly from off to hi or moonlight depending if you press and release, or press and hold.

I’m not sure if those lights are genuine either, but the LED Lenser clone I got last year for $7 was pretty nice:
http://www.amazon.com/Camping-Hiking-Lumen-CREE-Headlamp/dp/B004NK6Q7Y/

It’s like a SK-68 on your head, basically. It doesn’t get as wide on the flood setting, but it seems to be just a little brighter overall, when compared to a SK-68 with Eneloops. Not as bright as a SK-68 with a 14500 battery though.

I don’t use it much though, because my ZL H51 works better for almost everything I do.

Nitecore EC2 Explorer, XP-G R5, 320LM 7-Mode
Review of selfbuilt about the EC1/2, EA1/2 with many pictures

Listed price of Fasttech: $44,34, BLF coupon can be used. Non Aff-Link

I like knives and other BLF members, too. Now FT have some new – complete knives category. I post only a few (the shops listed 8 knives today of Ganzo, Navy and Sanrenmu).

Ganzo G704 with nylon bag, axis lock, big and heavy knife, great quality, review about it. Listed price $16,81, useful coupon CPASTE13SPRING – Non Aff-Link

Some popular Navy knives: K631 if you want a long knife, but it is the half serrated blade version. Review. Listed price $16,21, useful coupon CPASTE13SPRING Non Aff-Link
K507 – (looks similar like the large Sebenza), a thread on BLF about it Listed price $10,22 coupon CPASTE13SPRING Non Aff-Link
The new K619G, it’s a little bit smaller as other Navy, but I like the design. It hasn’t a thumb hole/pin only a nick. Listed price $14,71 , coupon CPASTE13SPRING Non Aff-Link or the K620G with a thumbhole for $14,69 and with the coupon CPASTE13SPRING $13,96. My link and the non aff-link.
K602, a big folder with a long blade (length 11.08cm), blade width: 4.12cm. Listed price $17,42 coupon CPASTE13SPRING Non Aff-Link

For S10 it only can access to Moon mode with press and hold from off, wheres S20 can activate High mode with double click from off & same Moon mode access as S10, love both of them Love

Often I have to scroll a lot (maybe all mobile users must scroll much more) and it would be great,to minimize this a little bit.

Would it be possible to delete some post please, which have lost their necessity (for example post 93-97)?
Next point: Quotes. Would it be possible to quote only the neccessary part of a post and not the whole. Thank you.
