I don’t think there are massdrop affiliates links… Technically it isn’t a store but a crowd sourced groupbbuy platform.

They aren’t aff-links, persay, but if someone signs up and buys through your link, after I think 5 people you get a gift box… then again at other increments.
There are ~60 Maratacs left if anyone missed this.

EDIT: Just went back and looked they got another 250…. so there are ~300 available now \o/

ah yes, they put a note in the package,saying "invite 5 friends, and get a gift".  Never wanted to do that, though.

I’ve wanted to do it just to see what the package is…. I have 2 or 3 people, but none have bought anything. Cheap friends, lol
I already have a Rev. 2 Copper AAA, but I am very tempted to pick up one of these too… such a good deal over CountyComm.

I wonder how they get the products,since countycomm shows no stock.

Here is one of my package. Packing inside is not very good (for internation shipping).

I’m trying to order the maratac but it says “Internal Error” and won’t let me check out… At 441/775 sold right now. Edit: had to use the alternative zip code for the business address.

Same here Rey, I was in the waiting list for this light and there wasn’t any kind of notification.

CountyComm (their manufacturing portion) is probably making them for Massdrop.
Was that from Massdrop?

Yes,it's from massdrop, on the other side of box, the tape has Massdrop printed on it.  

Just feeling weird, Maratac should have thoses coppers produced in China, not sure which company.  Why only MD has them on sale but not Countycomm?   Does MD has the permition to sell?

I’ll have to see what my massdrop packages normally come packed with, the last couple Spydercos were bubble mailer.
I am pretty sure CountyComm is a contract manufacturer, or a middleman. A few of their items are over runs from other contracts (like Maratac watches).
I’d have to say they have permisssion to sell, because they have to contract the vendors to make arrangements for the group buy pricing.

You must log with that link but not with this: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/maratac-copper-aaa-flashlight?mode=guest_open

If anything can go wrong, it will.

Not sure how great a deal this is but Massdrop has the Armytek Wizard Pro v2 Headlamp in cool white for $84.99 if they get 10 commitments and $79.99 if they get 20.

I hate how Massdrop makes you sign in so I tried antiparanoico’s trick with the guest link and hope it works.

$32.99 if 20+ join.

That seems like a pretty good price since it includes an 18650 battery and is USB in-flashlight rechargeable.

Indeed! $54 + shipping typical. A lot of similarly-priced lights don’t include the battery.

I have the same light at home and I purchased it at full retail price.
At $32.99, it’s a good buy for a quality and solid light, with free battery to boot

The insane paranoia about firearms is spreading to knives. Eventually, it’ll probably spread to “assault flashlights” (anything over 100 lumens or with a strobe).

I wouldn’t characterze it as “paranoia”.
The Int’l Laws about knife possession are hugely varied, and Massdrop likely
doesn’t want the liability.
Sounds reasonable to me.

I’m not referring to Massdrop’s decision, but to the reason they’re having to do it.

I got my copper AAA. The finish is excellent. The tint is too cool for my taste. If you remove the clip, it will scratch the light. I hope they release the copper 16340 on massdrop too.

Does anyone know if it takes 10440?

I wouldn’t risk it:

A note from the legal department: We do not recommend the use of 10440 rechargeable batteries with this flashlight. It is designed to use a off the shelf alkaline, lithium, NiMH or Nicad AAA batteries. We do not recommend use of higher voltage batteries.
