Jetbeam BC40 OK to buy from Manafont?

I'm fairly new to LED flashlights and it seems like Manafont have the cheapest price @ $67.38 . for the Jetbeam BC40

I have never dealt with them are they reliable? or could I buy somewhere cheaper? keep in mind I am from Australia and most  shops would add freight.

Cheers Steve

The Jetbeam BC40 you have chosen is a good budget light and I'm sure you'll like it. I have the Cool White & Netural White versions of it and like them both.

I'm not sure what shops you have around your area, so I don't know what other deals you can find, but Manafont has good shipping and a pretty good selection of budget lights and it looks like they are expanding into the better know brands too.

Let us know how you like the light when it arrives, not sure of the transit times for your country, but to the USA it's usually 10~11 days for the light to arrive, and of-course no extras for standard shipping.

Good luck, and Welcome Aboard!

Thanks benckie, I have one on order, although a friend has warned me to stay away from cheaper batteries, he has ordered some redilast batteries for me.

Cheers Steve.
