Richard is great to deal with and I wouldn’t hesitate to give my recommendation.

Package took 5 days from the US to New Zealand complete with some Efest 10440’s running the gauntlet of Lithium transportation safety absurdity Wink

Eat that Singapore Post.

Parcel was exceedingly well packaged and protected. I appreciate that kind of attention to important details.

Thanks for all the support guys!  I haven't been responding very fast today because I've been traveling to go pick up the family.  Don't worry, I was up at 4:30 this morning finishing up orders from yesterday and dropped them off this morning at the post office on my way.  Don't worry, I also brought everything with me so orders will begin going out again on Friday as usual.  I had my video camera just in case my car happened to catch on fire; there are so many batteries that it would make the burning Tesla video look like a little sparkler vs. an incendiary mortar round. Wink  The things I do for you guys! Sealed

Got my package yesterday. Arrived 8 days after I placed the order.

Finally I got myself some various Efest batteries.. Me likey! I was not able to get these from China due to the li-ion issues...

Picked up some 20R cells too. They seem to have quite similar output as my green sony 2600mA (50A) cells when freshly charged, just like HKJ charts said. Smile

Got some reflectors too.

Everything was good! Nicely packaged. Great communication.

Thanks for taking the time to place the order manually and to send the stuff "over the pond" to me. Smile

Best wishes with future business!

Hope you got some time in with friends & family between all the orders!
Don’t burn out. People should be able to understand you taking a bit of time off for holidays!

Any possibility of stocking Efest IMR 14500?

Yes, I will be getting some in the next big Efest order (no ETA).  In the meantime, the Sanyo UR14500P should be here this coming weekend, both protected and unprotected.  The Efest are less expensive than the Sanyo. 

Thanks!
Richard

Good news for international buyers! The international test shipment that RMM made to me arrived in great shape, incredibly well packed, and in pretty decent time (a bit over two weeks to my destination, YMMV). International shipping was very reasonably priced, and that combined with his sweet prices on the batteries makes this a very viable option for international Li-Ion buyers (and a no-brainer for USA buyers). Thanks a lot to RMM for a fast and smooth transaction!

Dude. Are you looking at what I’m ordering from chinese stores, and then stocking them the DAY AFTER I’ve ordered?

You’re killin’ me. :_(

I literally just ordered a bunch of gaskets and springs yesterday. This is the third time this has happened (Previously with emitters, and batteries before that). lol.

I browsed your store for 14500’s. Had to grab one from Ebay.

Hope to see some on your site sometime.

There’s some stuff I know that’s not practical for Richard to stock, like the bits I need to mod a Maglite, but the next project I have I’m most likely going to him first. At this point he’s modeling his store after IOS. I’m on a buying moratorium until after Christmas, but probably first on my list is a C8 host and that 4-color XM-L/Driver setup.

You need to commission a line of 16x6mm switch boots. I'm SICK AND TIRED of adding o-rings and spacers and washers on top of the stupid 8mm tall boots only to find the switch no longer fits in the tailcap!

14x6mm boots exist, sort of... very few sources and usually only one color, that awful GITD-green. Some 14x6 black boots would be neat.

Definitely, I didn’t expect him to stock gaskets and springs which is why I ordered a bunch from cnqg. Now he pretty much has everything I’ve ever needed except for the more specialty items that are low demand.

It’s good to see a more local shop with increasing variety of goods. Beer

@ Comfy: Interesting.  I'll see what kind of boots I can procure!  

@ Streamer: Sorry I didn't have any.  Will have some in the next week or so, both protected and unprotected Sanyo 14500s.  In the next month or so there will also be some Efest IMR 14500s.  

Still working on getting everything on the site.  Thanks for all of the support!

Got everything up on the site now, with pictures.  

A few other things coming online tonight:

  • New: Convoy S6 Hosts
  • Re-stock: AMC7135

A few upcoming projects:

  • Working on an inexpensive 4.35V charging solution.  I have a few parts I'm waiting on and testing but will give an update soon.
  • Pre-built 3XP Shorty Flashlights (eta January)
  • Kit to install 3XP in Convoy S2 (eta January)

You are kicking butt and taking names Smile  Between you and IS, I won't need to get my modding parts from China anymore.

Have you considered offering a 105C flashing service, with a few different program options with adjustable levels per flash?  It was something I was considering offering until PilotPTK showed us his new driver design, but that now has been put on hold it seems.  If you're interested in doing that let me know and I (along with others here) can help you get that going.

Wow, great news! Everything you mention here is interesting to me. Keep up the awesome work Richard, should I just leave my CC on file and have you take what you need every week or so?! Smile

Parts? :bigsmile: Are you making a 4.35V charger board, similar to a lipo nano or micro lipo perhaps? Could you say what chip(s ) your thinking of?

Maybe a plug in 18650 Cradle.

I’ve been tempted to make a 4.35v dual MCP73831 based charger.

Oh dear-Neil Degrass Tyson, if you can build in a 4.3v setting as well I see myself breaking my pre-christmas buying moratorium on flashlight stuff.

Imho its safer to have seperate chargers for different voltage li-ions.
Seems easier to forget to check the switch.

The label on this 4.2v, 4.35v charger pretty much says it.

4.35v skull and cross bones.

Granted 4.3v, 4.35v shouldn’t be as risky if set wrong. You do need a seperate charger IC chip and circuit for each voltage. Only saving a bit of space combining them into one unit.

It will be a dedicated 4.35v charger, not a switchable one.  It will be pretty bare bones.

A bit of bad news:
My latest order of 500 AMC7135 was stolen or misplaced after it was delivered. It was scanned delivered and I received some other packages that fit in my mailbox but this one is missing. Sad  

I have enough remaining to satisfy all outstanding orders but don't have enough to offer any more for sale until I can get some more.
