do you know where can we get a Lee zircon minus green filter here in Australia at a resonable price?
I found this 1.2m x 3m roll at $71. Anyone interested so we can share?

I received the Emisar D4 ti today and it is pristine as new condition. Very happy to get this beautiful shiny model with 18350 tube especially as they seem to be sold out.

Thanks Anh Tran.

Guys,

Sofirn have now got an AmazonAU store – while the items are still coming from overseas, it’s through Amazon, so there’s all their consumer protections. Sofirn have given me some codes for some items there, with only one request – after you receive the item, could you please leave store feedback for them.

The items are:

These codes expire 11:59pm 23/10/19 AEDST, so almost 6 days from now.

Comparing to Sofirn’s AliExpress store with the default postage options, that makes the price differences as such:

  • SP36 – from $94.21 inc GST (AE) to $68 inc GST on Amazon (saving of $26.21, or ~28%)
  • SP40 – from $40.60 inc GST (AE) to $35.09 inc GST on Amazon (saving of $5.51, or ~13.5%)

The idea behind this is that Sofirn are looking at posting coupons to OzBargain on a fairly regular basis, but they need 10 feedback on their Amazon store to do so. I understand that this smacks of “buying reviews”, but please note that it’s a request, not a demand, and it’s to enable providing further deals in the future. Honesty is always best, and I’m being as up-front as I can with why we’re doing this.

Thanks.

I’d be happy to do the same if they need more people, thanks for the codes mate

It really is, but after getting a D18 with XPL HI’s I think I’d better calm down a bit, that thing cost heaps with our crummy exchange rate

Everyone, I’m really sorry but it seems Sofirn are out of stock of the SP36. Just got confirmation then… either they ran out today, or stock update was delayed.

I’ll ask when they’ll have stock again.

Okay, word back from the factory is that the SP36 will be back in stock in 10-15 days; a bit of confusion it seems. Sorry for the spam, but wanted to make sure it’s all out in the open.

Any questions, feel free to hit me up, or you can email Vivi at sofirnjp@gmail.com.

Could someone please buy this so I don’t have to?

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/LED-Flashlight-Olight-X6-Marauder/303404822172

It’s a little bit under powered but it must have some modding potential.

I was looking for a psu and came across this relatively cheap yet powerful 48v 62a 3000w psu

If 48v is not your flavour then this one costs a little more but has more flavours in the 1500w range – https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000390769952.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist...

Does anyone know of sellers that don’t pay GST to the ATO?

I don’t know the ins and outs of it but it would give them a competitive advantage. In my limited online travels I’m thinking that Fasttech and the Convoy store on AliExpress could be two that don’t.

I’m pretty sure aliexpress adds the gst at checkout. Don’t know about fasttech or other standalone stores.

It also depends on how you pay.
If you use PayPal the GST is added on to the cost if no GST included in invoice from the dealer.

Can confirm that FastTech and NealsGadgets don’t. AliExpress does. The Wildtrail D80v2 is $US27.71 shipped (with tracking) from NealsGadgets. M4dM4x has a slightly cheaper Banggood voucher but GST and shipping inflate the total.

Then you’re stuck in the dilemma of who is worse to deal with…
