Ordered one but the 20% off would not piggyback. Still $12 seems like a good deal. Don’t know the color tint? A little on the large size is the only negative I could find. Sorry RC, I must have gotten the last one today.

According to this thread...

http://budgetlightforum.com/node/57831

...the tint is cool white.

I have the flashlight in my Amazon cart, so I can still buy it for $12 plus tax, but I don't like cool white so I'll pass on this one.

It looks like a great deal, but it's just not for me.  :THUMBS-UP:

I’m hoping not too cool. My last light listed 6500K but turned out to be white, not blue which is ok . I am getting away from lights I have to remove the batteries to charge. This fits the bill. Good car light.
Edit just read that review and it said that SOS is in the cycle so if that is true still that would be 2nd negative.

Here's a flashlight that takes 4 AA batteries.

It's $5.50 with this vipon coupon:

https://www.vipon.com/product/7774760-LETMY-LED-Flashlight-Upgraded-Brightest-High-amazon-coupons

It has three modes:

High, low, and strobe.

It doesn't appeal to me, but it might be a good deal for someone that doesn't want a flashlight that takes Li-Ion cells.

It's a very handsome flashlight.

I wish the TN4A (or similar - I think there was more than one light in that form factor) could be had affordably.

Sofirn SF11 is half the cost of TN4A.

I want a BLF edition of SF11, but it doesn’t seem like a popular demand for it Tired

Those lightning deals don't last long now do they.

Thanks for the heads up regardless.  :THUMBS-UP:

CCed from the edc-pouch thread:

Got one of these, pretty damned good for 10bux:

https://www.vipon.com/product/7736294-BESTKEE-Men-Tactical-Belt-Heavy-Duty-amazon-coupons

(Some people don’t like tinyurl, so just c&p the text for the link. Flat Stare )

Quick-release belt (solid chunk o’ metal for the buckle), molle pouch like the one I’ve been EDCing forever, and a ring attachment thingy, all included.

Even on AX, you could pay 10bux just for the pouch.

Lightbringer, Thanks for this awesome gift idea.
I might get some of the pouches from for $5 or $6

30% off clickable coupon on the Wuben C5. Makes it $17.49 after the coupon. Looks like a neat 14500 light. Looks like it might get dropped a few times by me. I need a little knurling in my old age. Big Smile

Hmmm…well, it doesn’t have “fire” in the name, it doesn’t have 6 emitters for show, it doesn’t look like housing is plastic…

One amazon reviewer reported they were more like 2000mah and were all close to each other in capacity.

Yeh, you can get cheap but decent commodity cells in that range. I bought a bunch “genuine LiitoKala” [snort] cells for like 2½ bux a pop when gifting some lights. They all clocked in on-the-money, no complaints.

B’harni help me, but there’s a vipon for a 2pak of “wdtpro” zoomies w/ holsters, 10bux → 5bux.

They look too “3D” to be rolled-Al-foil like my AT01 fiasco, so they might make not-suck-too-bad hosts for kicking around.

And again, that’s two-fitty each per light + holster + 3×AAA holder + 18650 sleeve.

Wotdahell, I’ll bite.

I already have a few zoomies that need to be modded, so I’ll probably sit this one out.

Good find LB!!! I was out last night with a friend that asked me about a “couple” of cheap zoomers for his cabin which is off grid (a party house out on a farm actually). I also needed a few more bucks for free shipping in Amazon… Bang! Done! Thumbs Up Beer
