I figured that there really needed to be a more permanent coupon code for BLF so here it is:  coupon code "BLF" gets you 2% off of all the items located in the following categories: batteries, LEDs, MCPCBs, drivers, and optics.  There will be other discounts and promotions from time to time but this one will be semi-permanent, i.e. the amount of discount and categories/items of discount may vary from time to time but the BLF code will always get you something!

Thanks for the support!

Nice! But…I want you to stay in business, with your already low prices do discounts allow enough profit to keep going strong? I want to know you’re there with cells, drivers, Noctigons, when I need em, I don’t really care if I pay 2% more…or 10% more…as long as you’re there with the goods. Wink

RMM, I think you need a new “coupon” code. Just for Dale. “DBCstm” gets 2% added on all items. Big Smile
Maybe a “DBCstm10” code as well?

Yes! In fact, I think that we need a code like that.  Type in "CHARITY" for an additional 10% added to your order! Wink  Just kidding.

I thought it was more of a “support your local…” kind of thing.

Should be fairly obvious. If you buy 100 cells and you sell those in a month, you’ve got to have enough profit to cover replacing those as well as something to feed the kiddo. Am I wrong? And if you want to put in a stock of Tofty’s new switch, well there’s more overhead. We all want these things, you need the funds to lay em in stock. No brainer, right? Too many coupons on already low priced discount items and there’s not anything left to put new stock on the shelves after the car needs tires. Ok, so you made a buck profit on those each of those 100 cells, how far does a hundred bucks go? Just sayin…

I like a budget deal as much as the next guy, but I also know I’m gonna want the shop to keep it’s doors open. Don’t know, maybe I’m wrong.

I used to drive 30 miles out of the way (17 miles each way) to buy bullets from the area gunsmith instead of getting them cheaper right here in town. Guess if more people had felt that way, we’d still have an area gunsmith.

I just wanted to give a thumbs up to RMM. Got back to me right away on my inquiry about shipping to Canada and was able to save me some money on shipping. Looking forward to my order arriving.

Another great chance to support a fellow BLF’er.

Cheers,
Ford

Ed, I prefer the warmer tints (4C & 5B1) in the XM-L2.  You will need a 16mm MCPCB.  My personal S2 is running a qlite @ 3.04A with a 5B1 XM-L2 on a 16mm Noctigon MCPCB.  This is a warmer tint than most LEDs but not overly so in my opinion.  The color rendition is fabulous.  You do lose a few lumens with the 5B1 vs. the 4C or 3C but in this type of light I like the 5B1 a lot.

You could always go with the 16mm XP-G2 on Noctigon as well if you want more throw vs. more overall lumens.  I also offer some inexpensive XP-G2 emitters on aluminum stars as well but those will do better with a few 7135s removed from the qlite, at around 2A, they are also 1A which is pretty cool unless dedomed.  The Noctigon XP-G2 will take 3A just fine.

Hope that helps!

He must be a pitcher or something; I still have a kink in my neck from when my package tagged me. Silly

I know how fast he is, I ordered batteries on Monday and got them on Wednesday which is coast to coast.

Just have to figure out what to buy.
Thinking about 2 of each host using different combo’s

Any ideas???

There are more on the way as we speak, I expect that they should be here in 7-10 days (holiday shipping slowdown has begun!)

A few other things that are on the way:

  • Protected and unprotected Sanyo 14500 (UR14500P)
  • King Kong ICR 26650 
  • More protected Panasonic NCR18650B 
  • Restock and expansion of the Noctigon line (XP-E2 will be available tonight, along with a few other things like the XinTD V4 Smile )

Thanks, RMM. XPE2 would throw real nice. I’m building a thrower for a non-Flashaholic so want to drive it just hard enough to be real bright but not worry about a novice cooking it. Any suggestions of how many amps to drive it at?

According to Match's testing, I would say that somewhere around 1.8-2.0 amps is the sweet spot.  A qlite with 3 chips removed (for 5 total) should give you right around 1.9 amps.  Looks like the XP-E2 has a fairly low vF so you should be able to maintain maximum brightness and regulation for a long time even on a single 18650.

Are you sure they’re XP-E2 R4 3C and not supposed to be 1C?

Now here's the funny part, my wife's name is actually Lisa.  Valerie is my mother's name, whose name I opened the account in 1998 (who is also a wonderful person).  In order for PayPal to change the name I have to fax them all sorts of proof and I just haven't quite gotten around to it yet.  SmileSmileSmile  Soon enough it will say "Mountain Electronics" or at least my name!  

But yes, she is great and she helps me an awful lot!  She's been out of town visiting family for the past 10 days so I've been running the whole show and going to school 12+ hours per day... not a lot of sleep I can tell you that!  But, it's worth it to me.

You gave your mum 10 days off? You are a wonderful son.
Seriously your doing a terrific job here and got yourself a loyal band of clients. Good luck for the future not that you will need it and look forward to what you can offer for overseas customers. Probably one big headache but who knows. Beer
