My order on Dec 24th should arrive today - it's at my local post office. Ordered 4 of the XPL2 V6's and couple more of your DTP MCPCB's. I really like them in black. Please keep those prices on the DTP MCPCB's! Your discount keeps them competitive, but if your discount expires, your qty pricing does not match up well against intl-outdoor's.

To me it's not worth paying more for a preferred color.

In fact it would be great if you updated your qty pricing based on the discounted price smile.

I’m not sure about Kaidomain, but Gearbest uses permanently ‘discounted’ prices on items to prevent using coupon codes or store ‘points’. Nevertheless: keep those prices as low as they are Smile

Ban, about the DTP triple board, as seen in the picture a couple of posts above, they do not fully match the optic that comes with it, or the optic is wrong: the broadening of the legs are at the wrong height for this board. Could you take a look at it?

I think it would be better if they look at better boards too . It would be great if board thickness was 1.5mm – 2mm .

They should be 1.6mm thick and all (potential) problems would be solved.

Looking for:

5” parabolic reflector (for recoil light)

Yes they are. Thumbs Up
Very very similar to Noctigon actually.
Maybe they’re even from the same factory.
They are the ‘normal’ 1.6 mm thick.

C'm00n! Stop moaning about those triple parallel 3535 boards' thickness. They probably got some sort of nice deal for a batch of 'em with that thickness and they went with it. They got the message already, but hell they're not going to dump all of that crapload of boards in stock just because of this. 

[Gross mode mostly disabled]

 

Also, triple series 3535 DTP copper boards are nowhere to be seen. This is likely to be related to a proportionally low sales volume for the triple series aluminium boards, which may have to do with the series configuration, but is also substantially related with the fact that the alu boards were not DTP. I wouldn't complain at all for aluminium DTP triple series boards.

Back to my lair.

 

Cheers Party

Wow KawiBoy1428, you mean the boards' underside is so puffed they don't sit straight flat? Facepalm LoL…

What the… ? To little detail on the picture. What's that overshadowed funny shape central area on the board? 

Got email from KD a few days ago, btw. Something got messed with my XM-L2 3000K 90+CRI on 20mm MCPCB shipment. I was told to “ignore the led in the package”.

You should fix the price as it doesn’t make any sense with the discount price lol


“Our Price: $5.10
Discount Price: $5.19”

Can you lend me some money to buy new flashlights?

Hey BanL, can you get amber XP-E2 emitters to sell?
EDIT: parallel triple amber boards, that is

I see you have XP-E2 red (and green and blue) parallel triple boards, e.g. here:

Wow, my last order was shipped thru Vanuatu and was place on 12/29 and is not even showing up as being found yet… Seems like an odd shipping source, guess I will be waiting awhile! Was really hoping for less than a month +.

KD never even bothered to return my emails after a purchase just sat there for a month with no update as to shipping or tracking. Paypal refunded me within 24 hours.

I got a C8 drop-in from KD that shipped via Vanuatu. Ordered Dec. 20 and I got it on Dec. 30. I think the tracking worked the whole time though.

That looks like an interesting LED – I’m tempted to order one! I haven’t followed this whole thread, but I skimmed the first and last few pages – is there any coupon code available?

I got the same email for my recent order. Today I received it and it looks like the LED (warm white XM-L2) and the PCB (20mm copper) match the description. What could be wrong with it???

May the Light illumine you Wink

I made 2 orders of li-ion battery`s from Kaidomain, I received both in a couple of weeks, Both parcels came with a free ultracheap AA led flashlight and a small cleaning cloth, I think kaidomain incudes the flashlight as it lets them get around shipping li-ion battery restrictions.

 

So i recommend Kaidomain, good prices and fast shipping.
