Regarding the deal alert in Post 857 of the BLF Deal Alert Thread. for the TN31.

That seems like a pretty good deal.  At one time it would have been a very good deal.  I would rather spend $40 more for a TK-61 though.  More battery capacity, larger reflector, more heat sinking, and more moddable for higher voltage emitters like the MT-G2 and whatever comes out in the future.

Thanks for the comments. I posted that deal there. To be honest I am not sure if it is a good deal or not. Mine was from at least two years ago at $120. But nowadays it may not quality as a satisfying thrower any more.

They now have both neutral white and cool white for $79.95, last week the cool white was $10 more. Just received my neutral white today. Now have 2 stock and 1 modded TN31. The modded one will out throw anything I have. My modded one was done by TomE but I think I’m going to try and mod the other cool white and leave the neutral stock. To me I think this is the best deal going especially if you can mod. One more thing, the ones on sale at Amazon are shipping only in a cardboard box, not the aluminum case.

I know the Nitecore i4 is a bit out of favor, but in case someone is interested:

I’ve been meaning to buy one of these for a while now, but just couldn’t fork over the $150+ for one. Definitely going to buy one today. Thanks for the stellar find!

EDIT: It is now sold out for the $60 price tag. It’s now back up $88. Looks like I’ll have to wait until another great deal like that comes around.

If you missed this deal, Black and Decker makes a great rotary tool for a tiny price. Usually B&D stuff is utter crap, but this is the exception. It outlasted my Dremel brand tool easily. The cost savings is partially from B&D not including a bunch of accessories, but they use the same bits as Dremel so you can just get the ones you need.

I'm sure everyone knows by now.  Amazon is having some type of big sale tomorrow just for Prime members.  I didn't search very hard, but I don't see a list of items that will be on sale.  If anyone finds something like that, please share it.  I don't have a Prime membership, but I'm curious.

Go to Amazon home page and click on the Prime day banner. Scroll all the way down and there’s a slider with today’s deals. Click over a few pages and you’ll see a bunch of items starting from 2am and on. Shows the item, but not the deal price.

I’m guessing there are more deals not currently listed? Seems like a small amount.

Anyway I found these that are set to go on sale tomorrow:

The Innova DMM works great. I got mine 2 years ago for $21. Use the crap out of it, still looks and functions like new.

Lol, I was just on my way to post that. Watch the prime day deals, they are adding different items every few minutes. I’ve seen eneloops and Nitecore D4 chargers on sale today.

I think some people are adding everything to their carts once it’s available… I missed several deals because it has been fully claimed before I could even think about the price…

I decided to "Work from home" today (shirk from home?!), so that I could keep an eye on the deals as they are released.

A couple of weeks ago I missed out on a Lightening deal for a Leatherman Charge TTi reduced to £95, then quickly increased up to about £150 where it has stayed. This was intended to replace my LM Wave.

I've seen a few Leatherman tools and some other EDC stuff today, but nothing fantastic yet.

So far what has passed: Leatherman Raptor, Leatherman Charge ALX, Vic Spartan (91mm Red), Vic Rescue Tool (111mm Yellow).

Also there was some weird Hammer-based multitool (sold by a 3rd party, cheap tat, completely overpriced).

And this-morning two "Foxnovo" brand Nitecore clones - a 4-bay and an 8-bay multi-chemistry chargers. These too were massively overpriced even after reduction. Better off to buy an original Nitecore or XTAR for half the cost!

 

Still to come, Upcoming EDC-related as of now:

17:10 - LED Lenser 8314 M14 Multi-Function Torch Gift Box - Black

17:10 - Leatherman Wave LT650 Pocket Tool

17:30 - Coast PX20 LED Torch (Clampack) - Black

 

Let us know your found treasures.
