Received some of the 12W Thorfire LED Bulbs deal alerted in the following posts:

The box they come in is quite nice. Some of the wording on it is fun to read. Big Smile The bulbs appear to be quite well made. Apparently, these are the lowest of the line as the 80 CRI option is the lowest available. There is 85, 90, and 95 CRI options also available. The tint is supposed to be just pure white, but the tint appears slightly green to me. Whatever the tint is, I don’t like it. My wife doesn’t like it at all and she loves cool tints. There is a short delay before the bulb lights up. At this moment, I regret the purchase. Maybe I’m just out of sorts from the flu virus that I’m shaking the last remnants of off. I give the bulbs a day or two more to grow on me.

EDIT: Pulled off the bulb. Tint is much better, but light dispersion is now just LED mule. Kind of like the heat sink. Seems to have some heft. Its anodized to a pretty cool color (better than the product pics). The color reminds me of pewter. Seems like it could be turned into a neat flashlight. The LED self is pressed in to the finned body. Trying to get it off without scratching the finish. The LED has thermal glue (unlike the product picture below).

So the poor tint seems to be caused by diffuser? I’m tempted at this price of course.

Still taking a break. Smile

Appears that way to me, but don’t go by my word alone. I’m not a good judge of CRI and tint. I think they may be worth the price for parts. Still trying to get one apart while watching TV.

Hammer and part of a clothes pin can knock of the LED shelf:

Driver is mix of SMD's and thru-hole components:

Bottom is threaded on.  Too bad I started with the hammer.

Just having fun.  Doesn't thread on.  Would need JB weld or foil or something.

Bought one last week off Amazon for $2.59 delivered. Box marked 95 CRI Warm White. It has a neutral tint. Wife loves it as do I. We have a 30’ X18’ living room with vaulted ceiling and the neutral tint is very pleasing to the eye. It’s mounted vertically in a torchier style 6’ floor lamp which throws the light straight up. Cool as heck.

Then couple days later another one appears in the mail. WTH? Turns out they sent me one for FREE or made a mistake. Anyways, opened it up and box marked Pure White & 85CRI. Tint appears same to me. Anyways the free one must have been one of the earlier models I read about because immediately when screwing it in the threaded base kept turning in the receptacle. No matter, works perfect. May put some loctite on it later.

Turns out we have 2 torchier style 6’ floor lamps, one on each side of the room, and the lighting now is very even and neutral across the entire room since we run both lamps with the new bulbs. Just looks so much “nicer” than the very warm incandescents we were used to.

Thanks Thorfire for the Freeby. Guess they just wanna get them out of the warehouse.

LOL. I came home to another package of bulbs. So now I have 8 bulbs. Checked Amazon, but I only was billed for the 4 ordered. 6 of the boxes are marked 80CRI like the one I tore down above, 1 is not marked, and 1 is marked 90CRI. All are marked “Pure White”, except the 90CRI light. That light, has a pretty nice tint. Anyone know anything about the emitters in these (see Post 64 above)?

darn, I should have bought more than one!!! Silly The light output without the diffuser is, i’m guessing 800 ish lumens. It’s approximately the same brightness as a Convoy C8 shone on the ceiling. My intention with the one I ordered is to put a true, warm white, bridglux or Cree 1512 LED in place of the NW stock LED. Another option is to buy some warm white LG LEDs from fasttech and somehow squeeze 4 or 5 of those (seriesf) onto the bulb. lol. I’m just thinking now.

I haven’t bought this particular boost driver as yet but, the 6009xl drives an 1512 LED ok with a 2S pack and good with a 3S LiIon pack (added heatsink hardly warms up driving the LED at 1A,) . The little driver below should easily fit in the body of this bulb Big Smilehttp://www.banggood.com/2A-DC-DC-Boost-Step-Up-Conversion-Module-MicroUS...

Amazon has Ganzo G735 assorted colors for $11.95 sold by ACE KNIFE. Free 2-day ship for Prime members.
This is a great deal on one of Ganzo’s more recent models.
The next closest price I could find was gearbest for $17.01
Mine just arrived yesterday (G735-YB Yellow & Black), and best of all, it arrived in 2 days!
I’m used to waiting for the slow boat from China, but this is stocked somewhere in the USA.

correct connector for one neither.

For a powerbank to start a vehicle the battery must be high drain LiPo in 4S, the ravpower one uses 18650s in 1S configuration.

Superway 10,400mAh lantern / powerbank combo

Got one last week and it is great, measured 32Wh output at 5V 2A which means the 10,400mAh rating is REAL. About 400 lumens output and extreme runtimes in medium and low. Well built although glued all around so no modding possible. CW tint 5,700K with nice spread, about the side of a meteor.

I have a quick review coming soon when the runtime tests are done but I’m going to give you my word for $22 this is a steal, you won’t regret it.

Wowser, that's some serious run time.  Looking forward to your review.  How do you get it for $22?

At the time of my post there was a flash deal going on and it was $22.40, right now the price has gone back up but you can find the exact same lantern under other brands for about $28, or pay $36 for this superway one and get a smaller 4,000mah version free.

Runtime was Over 20 hours on high and 70hours on medium, not fully flat but a steady drop to about 50% power then LVP kicks in. Review should be up this weekend.

Saw this on Amazon after noticing GB had a sale on the Solarstorm K2 for $16.
Had to grab it at $7.99, even if it is a few years old…
Only 8 remaining at time of this post.

I was looking for some short KP protected 26650 cells for a friend and came across this deal on protected KP NCR18650B.

Next best US price I could find was ~$41 for different brand protected NCRB’s with slower shipping.

$36 with 2-day prime seems pretty good.

Buying lithium ion batteries through Amazon from a third party seller calling itself a Grocery already seems strange enough, but one named Bang Bang ???

I purchased those same cells linked from that seller. I made a similar comment at the time to wife, odd name indeed.. Bang Bang Grocery, hmm.. not sure what they’re aiming for here. Nearly two months later and no issues with the batteries far as I can tell! Try CamelCamelCamel and paste the AMZ link there to check the price history of an item, see if it’s really at an all time low and if there’s a pattern to price fluctuations Wink
