Thanks for the heads up guys.
The Sky RC was done for the day when I got there. Will try again tomorrow though. Thumbs Up

Picked up a few Ultratac A7’s, they make great little gifts even with the wonkie UI. Wink

I would be all over that except for High/Low/Strobe. Hopefully the A1 pops up someday.

Not that big of deal as it resets to come on in high after about 10-15 seconds of being turned off.
They do not seem to step down so will get pretty warm on high but is dang nice light for a cheap amount, great gift to muggles.

Got 5 from last round of discounts, that one was Old version, this time it’s new version.
What is difference?
We will find out in 2 days Smile

The SkyRC iMaxB6 Vipon coupon reset at 1:01:00 am Central time.

The SkyRC iMaxB6 was pulled from the Amazon listing at 1:01:01 am Central time. Facepalm

Oh well…… Big Smile

Not Amazon so i’ll ask for forgiveness after:

I refuse to go to my local Walmart and these lights are not my cup of tea but here’s a maglite 3xC and bushnell light being clearanced for <$10 in some stores. The site below allows you to see clearance prices by zip code. Enter your ZIP and see if your store has inventory at a cheap price. YMMV on if the product is actually on the shelf or somewhere to be found. Good Luck and Sorry Smile

Just be careful if it says the inventory number is small. I’ve been burned a lot by stolen/missing/misplaced/bad inventory

Ordered, tnx!!

Where you see those lights? Whenever I get a vipon, it only lists a half-dozen featured items, and if you go to the Big List, it takes forever to go through even a small fraction of ‘em.

How ya narrow ‘em down somewhat a lot?

I used the serch function and used LuxPro.  To see all deals from biggest discount to smallest order, I click Instant Deals as the top of the page and then select Discount for order.

1. May I know why the big difference between the prices of the same 20-pack Morpilot in Vipon and Amazon?

2. Would anyone know who makes this Morpilot brand?

Edit: 3. I tried the Vipon link, got their discount code, proceeded to their Amazon store, but where do I apply the code?

I picked some up. I havent attempted a capacity check on any of them. I dont expect much — but for some of my automation sensors they should work for a time.
You apply the coupon code on the last page of amazon checkout.

After applying the coupon code, will the price go down to $4.60/20-pack as per Vipon’s page?

Make sure you click the 10% off coupon on the main Amazon page as well. They combine to the cost.

Haha, I beg for your indulgence, as I am new to this promotion.

After using the 10% Amazon, will the price be $4.60/20-pack, or even lower?

Edit: Will the ‘apply coupon code’ appear only after the ‘choose your address’ ?

You see, this is my first time to use a coupon code in Amazon, though I have made several orders before. What I don’t exactly remember is after clicking the ‘deliver to this address’, will that be the next step where you can ‘apply coupon code’? And if the code is used, will that bring down the price to $4.60 for the pack of twenty CR123s? Seems like a too cheap to be good deal.

My address comes up automatically, so I’m not sure about that. But, as long as you ‘Apply Coupon’ before you ‘Place Order’ it should work fine.
.
EDIT: When I do it I have the opportunity to apply the coupon at any time before I actually place the order… IIRC.

Hang on a few minutes & I’ll run through the whole process & report back. Smile

Well, I was doing as instructed, clicked on the ‘promotion code’ and pasted the given code, (it was after the ‘choose your address’) but didn’t see any price in the page, just a box to continue…I was hesitant to continue for IIRC, Amazon just can be fast in announcing ‘order placed’…in contrast to using Paypal where there many ways to check the final amount before the ‘pay’ stage.

OK…. I just placed an order. You can apply the coupon code anytime after ‘Proceed to Checkout’ but before ‘Place Order’.

You must hit ‘Continue’ when it asks you to, otherwise you cannot proceed.

If something screws up you can always immediately ‘Cancel’ your order.

You should be able to see the price change in detail after you ‘Apply the Code’. (and click ‘CONTINUE’ if it asks you to)

Your order will not be placed before you click on ‘Place Order’. Thumbs Up

The total for my CR123 order was $4.80 after all coupons, but I think the Vipon coupon might have just expired.

I will sacrifice one to do a capacity test, I have a RC hobby charger, on what settings should I do the discharge test? What is the industry standard? 500mah? to what voltage? 2.5v?

If it’s a 1450mAh cell, then 500ma is .3c…that’s good enough.

I don’t know the industry standard for testing uniform capacity but discharging down to 2.8 volts, the usual termination voltage of several chargers is I believe appropriate enough for ‘our’ standards at least!

I am going to try it in a few moments as I just discovered the card I registered has expired so I just got hold of a new card.

Let’s hope the promo is still on as Kuoh just posted he thinks it may have expired.

Now it’s back to ‘deal requested’.
