They managed to screw up the site again so you cant even find lightning deals, seems like it happens a few times a year

The A1 has better mode spacing when running on NiMH, and also more neutral tint.

AA V2 has better mode spacing when running on Li-Ion.

Vipon coupon brings the price of the Lumintop Tool AAA to $10.13. A 15% coupon on the Amazon description page brings the price down to $7.60

Ordered. Thanks, Al!

Anyone know if this one comes with the second magnetic tail cap? Amazon’s description doesn’t mention it, but some reviews do.

Never mind.
The product description says, it DOES NOT come with magnetic clip.

Thanks. I see it now. It was mentioned on Vipon, but not on Amazon.

It’s weird that they give you the diffuser, so you can use it like a lantern, but without the flat magnetic tail, the flashlight will not stand. Sad

I bought one and it’s failed completely after only a few uses. Rofis won’t do anything about it. They won’t even return emails or messages. Stay away is my advice.

Decently built lantern mosquito killer 2 in 1. Very easy to mod and actually kills mosquitoes and all sorts of small flying bugs. Mine has a triple 219b 90cri and 3,500mah 18650, only downside is the noticeable pwn in lower modes. Lightning deal 14.99

Just be thankful Texas and “BAMA” are storing your Amazon goods in warehouses to keep you tax free Smile

Bah. The numbers seemed “off” when I tried ordering 2 (vipon + 15% off), went back to change the qty to 1 instead, just to see what if anything changed, and when applying the vipon code, “this code has already been used”.

Wellp, saved myself 20bux, so that’s not bad.

That’s what I was thinking too, but nothing I ever receive is shipped from Alabama??

Does it apply if they have any warehouses in the state, even if your product does not ship from a warehouse in my state??

Yes, if they have any presence at all in the state you are taxed.

edit; actually I just looked and I guess AL is one of the states that went further and just allowed all big internet sellers to charge tax since no one properly reports it.
