C8 SST-90......$20.80!

........If you buy 10 http://www.lightmalls.com/c8-sst-90-5-mode-led-flashlight-1-18650

And then you check the specs and see it's driven at 1800ma so would probably be blown away by any XM-L. Still if you really want an SST-90, and don't want to pay ~$200, there it is.

So who's gonna buy 10 and sell 'em for $21?   Laughing   the first one to respond will be the administrator of the group buy

 I have enough paypal disputes to choke a horse ..

 somebody buy these and  get a pre order for 8 at 25$ ad if it works you get two free .. not a bad deal .

almost clicked my paypal PAY NOW button , ALMOST!

 

i would consider a  group buy at $25  - i would jump on $20 , would have kept 2 out of the ten, just to busy to sell them but i am afraid its a typo too , its quite a discount

the prices dont look like they have dropped on SSTs too much

also not sure exactly where this stacks against XMLs, run time less i assume and i know 1500mA is a sweet spot for XML efficiency.

Anyone have idea or pics of brightness ? vs similar XML setup ?

 

then again you cant buy sst-90 led alone for about $30 US

 Since it says "Buy 10 for $20.80 each and save 67%"

I doubt that they'd miss the percentage saving.

Well,  I'm in for one . . . and if at least ten people put $21 in my Paypal, I'd go on the hook for it.  Would have to work out shipping with everybody.  I'd be willing to do all the leg work as long as my out-of-pocket were taken care of.  I'm not looking for anything free however, I'll pay for mine just like everybody else.  That way, we all win and all benefit equally with me donating all the packaging/post office runs. (but not the shipping costs)

If it comes to nothing, I'm fine with that too.  This light doesn't actually crank my Evinrude that much.  I mean, for $21 it does . . .

Nice quick reply.

"

Dear xxx xxx,
We are welcome for your purchase,and many thanks for your kindly email,it let us know our fault about the price,for 10pcs and more the price is usd60.8/pc,but not usd20.8,
I am very sorry for our mistake and if you are still interested in this model,when you place the order,we will match a 18650 battery for you for free.
 
 

   Best regards 

         
Boaz...Yeah I hesitated before asking......but in the end I reckon it's quicker (and easier) than getting involved with PP disputes etc.
There's some good kit on the site at competitive prices, and I'd rather deal with them on a friendly basis.
Could be a 'getting old' thing.

I'm driven by price . Most of these vendors aren't anywhere near wholesale . It takes a lot to thrill me even 20$ sst 90's weren't thrilling  but then again we have that pesky end of the world to deal with . i doubt their shipping is THAT fast .Tongue out

I think it is a mistake for the sales' mistake,for 1 unit the price is usd61.8,and for 10pcs,the price is usd20.8/pc,it is impossible

Lisa - How about a discount code for lightmalls for the BLF membership? Would probably dirve a little more interest in the site.
