Brinyte B158 Flashlight GB- Ordering is a GO with coupon, all details in the OP! Updated: 12-09-15

12-01-15 Update: Now that the group buy has been going for a few weeks, you can order away. I don’t know how long the prices will stay, but I’ll update this in case they change. Gear Best has been a bit conservative on the quantites they have ordered. So expect a week-ish, sometimes before shipping. Or more or less, I don’t know Here is the official mod thread for the light. People will soon be getting them, so I guess it’s good to have a fresh thread to post all the mods in.

NEW UPDATE- PLEASE READ BELOW (12-01-15)… Ordering is a GO! Gear Best is currently in the process of requesting another order because of the surge in demand over the holiday weekend. Basically this means about 60% of the lights are in stock, and some may ship next week or so. They just placed the order over the weekend for the first batch, so those are in transit or at the Gear Best warehouse. So temper your expectations on when it ships out… It may be a day or two, or a week. I would just recommend to go ahead an order your quantities, and when we exceed the amount in stock they’ll have to order more. Just be patient- these lights have been more popular than were originally anticipated.

Also I’ve mentioned it before but I’ll do so again: UPGRADE TO TRACKED SHIPPING. I know it sounds dumb, but if you don’t get tracked shipping- you order at your own risk, and if your package is lost, don’t say your weren’t warned. The next closest price is $30 at another vendor… adding the $2 or so still makes it quite a bit cheaper.

One other thing. The colored pills need a quantity of 10 before Gear Best orders them. They just made me aware of this today. Since demand has been so low and the price ain’t good, I don’t see this being a big deal right now. Just order a brass spare and put in your own LED and driver.

Ok folks, here are the ordering details. Firtst, two additional things… the LED listed on Gear Bests website is incorrect for the white module. It is correctly listed further down in this post as an XML2 U2 6500k. Also no one-mode whites have been ordered, so make sure you order the 5 modes. Gear Best said if there is an interest they may make them available, but there are none in stock. I don’t even know why that’s an option. Here is the info, make sure you use the coupon- if necessary.

1. Brinyte B158 WHITE LIGHT (5 MODES) $22.99

2. 5 x Brinyte B158 Flashlight Pill Lamp Holder – 5 piece brass pill- $27.59

3.1x Brinyte B158 Flashlight Pill Lamp Holder – 1 piece Brass Pill $6.59

4. Brinyte B158 340Lm Cree R5 Zooming LED Flashlight – RED LIGHT $20.59 (coupon B158RG)

5. Brinyte B158 300Lm Cree R5 Zooming LED Flashlight – GREEN LIGHT $20.59 (Coupon: B158RG)

END OF NEW INFO:

Ok folks, seems like Gear Best listed the B158 on their site, along with pre-group buy pricing of $28. I am still waiting to get a confirmation of the light ships with any of the extra mounts I was sent for review. I did a review of the Brinyte B158 a few weeks ago, but I’ll list a few high points of the light.

  • Over 310,000cd can be had after modding with a dedomed XPG2 and better driver. One of the best zoomies ever?
  • Easily Swappable Brass Pill.
  • 3 Factory Configurations for light: White Cree XM-L2 U2 6500k 5 Mode (900 Lumens), Red Cree XP-E R5, (340 Lumens), Green Cree XP-E R5 (300 Lumens)
  • IPX-8 Waterproof
  • Twist to Zoom
  • 50mm acrylic lens with 34.75mm (+- up to 3mm) Focal Length
  • Driver size per KKW… “A 17mm driver fits, it’s a 19mm MCPCB spot. So too much room for a 16mm, and not enough for a 20mm MCPCB for the LED”

In my review you’ll find all my tests and whatnot of the light, and you’ll find the actual output numbers that I measured in my review. Anyway, as far as the group buy specs here’s what Gear Best has about pricing via PM.
Here is the pricing:

White Version: 50 pieces for $22.99. 20 pieces for $24.59 (currently $28.00)
Red Version: 50 pieces for $20.59. 20 pieces for $23.59 (currently $28.00)
Green Version: 50 pieces for $20.59. 20 pieces for $23.59 (currently $28.00)
Brass Modules Green or Red: $10

The good thing is… If we get any combination of the light in a quantity totaling 50, the price will be only$22.59 (white) $20.59 (color) per light. Which is a very good price.

__if orders and interests are confirmed, it will take 3-7 business for us to take more lights back to GearBest warehouse -GearBestCS_
_
I have no idea on pricing for the separate pills yet, or even if it’s possible at this stage (I have asked several times). But please let me know in your post. It looks like unless you really need a separate color, it is more beneficial to order the white because it would drive the price down.

All updates or changes to the group buy will be in this post and will be reflected in the title. Stay subscribed, because believe it or not, after dozens of emails back and forth over a month and between several people- all the details still need to be worked out. I’ll update the list as it grows in post #2. I don’t need another light but I’ll start it out with something to get the pills rolling. Format it this way:

(quantity) type of light
(quantity) blank pills with centering ring and disc.
________________________________________________________________________________________________________
*ALL UPDATES BELOW THIS LINE
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

UPDATE: 11-25-15. We’ve reached 50. Keep those orders coming… KKW has weighed in on this light and he confirmed what I said in the initial review. He has modded his to over 310kcd, and has TWENTY FIVE of these lights on order himself. Seriously. This may be the best zoomie ever- After modding of course. Expect to get even higher ratings with spring Bypasses. Coupons have not arrived yet, and Gear Best does NOT have stock, as of right now. So be patient, they are going to place an order for lights before they take delivery from Brinyte. Also the Brass pills can be had for either 6.59 for 1 piece or 28.53 for 5 PC. The 1 piece will be reduced on Gear Bests website at a later date.

UPDATE: 11-24-15 (Part 2) KKW gets over 310 kcd with a Dedomed XPG2, here’s his post quoted.

Quote:
Fully charged Samsung 30Q, spring bypasses on both ends, dedomed XP-G2 S4 2B (not cherry picked) on 16mm Noctigon soldered directly to the pill, MTN-DD driver.

310,118cd

Jaw hits floor…..

UPDATE: 11-24-15 The bare brass pill. Or module, or whatever you want to call it. Right now it’s $9 but I’m trying to get a slightly better price.

UPDATE: 11-18-15 Ok folks, I didn’t think it would happen… but I got both sides to agree, Gear Best will now stock the bare modules. Gear Best contacted me yesterday and said they could do it. The pricing will be less than $9. That’s all I know. When I asked how much lower, they said wait and see when they list it. Ok. Anyway, so please let me know if anyone needs to update their brass pill quantity or change it. I’m going to buy 2 myself. Also of note, when we reach the group buy a coupon code will be issued. You can order immediately or wait for the warehouse to stock the item in 5-10 business days. Either way it’s 5-10 days before they ship. AND PLEASE UPGRADE TO TRACKED SHIPPING. I have ordered 4 things since my initial orders were lost, and they all arrived because I added the few bucks for tracking.

UPDATE: 11-12-15 If you want a bare pill you’ll need to go to Brinyte’s Ali Express store negotiate a quantity and pricing. Gear Best will not be selling the bare brass modules- make sure to ask them for the centering ring and threaded spacer disc (the white piece of plastic and black piece of plastic). Please note this, that I will not have a list going forward for the bare pill. Either sign up for the red or green module if you’d like a spare, or order directly from Brinyte. Note that the LED will have thermal glue like fujik applied. Any other accessories like the pressure switch- ask the Brinyte Aliexpress store.

Also note that the XML2 version Gear Best has ordered will be the XML2 U2 CW version (I reviewed the XML2 T4). Mode spacing isn’t confirmed yet on the white and red pills. I will make sure to find out and push for what was in the review.

UPDATE: 11-11-15. As of now you can only get the brass modules with a LED and Driver. I am still trying to work on getting them bare with the two plastic pieces (retaining ring and centering ring). I am in contact with Gear Best and Brinyte to hopefully get this resolved. I don’t think they like selling them separate. The pills with LED and driver, avialable in red or green are “about $10.” I feel this is a bit expensive personally… which is why I had been trying without the driver and LED included. I am also inquiring as to what accessories the basic light ships with. It seems on Gear Bests website it’s a copy and paste from Brinyte’s and I don’t think all of those things are included.

The only accessory included with this light will be the rail mount seen in this picture.

The warehouse does not have stock right now, so if you order the light right now at $28 you’ll need to wait an additional 5-10 business days. Also we only need 50 lights spoken for, in any color to reach the lowest price of $22.59 (white) or $20.59 (color)per light. Gear Best sent me a PM clarifying this.

In this list the color means the whole light. The light only includes the rail mount. We only need a total of 50 lights of any color combination to reach the price of $20.59 for color and $22.59 for white. Right now, it seems that it’s either a complete light with whatever color you choose, or empty brass pills.

Those in the bare module list marked with a “pending lower price” are only interested if the price is significantly lower than the original $9 estimate. Right now the price SHOULD be $6.59 for the bare pill. Gear Best will update the price, I’ve been told.

I ordered 1 from fasttech to see how the light stacks up in person. If it impresses me I’ll be upping the qty to 10. One thought I had was that if it’s a plastic lens of a hard size to replace elsewhere, will Brinyte ever offer replacement lenses for sale?

Now for the 15-25 day wait for it to show up.

Go ahead and put me down for one in green. I need to get a decent zoomie.

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

Ok folks. Pill pricing will be around $10 a piece. It seems they can not be shipped out bare, they need a red or green LED and driver. I am working with Brinyte to see if this is fixable, but it may not be. I have thought several times that they could be ordered bare, because that’s what was said. Post 1 and 2 updated for clarity. If this changes anything just shoot me a PM or post in this thread and I’ll update the numbers.

Edit: It seems some miscommunication exists between parties. The brass modules will not be bare, I wish I could change this- but it is not so right now. Also if we reach 50 total lights of any color- of the complete light will sell for $22.59 (white) or $20.59 (color). This makes it a lot better. Sorry for the initial confusion.

I didn’t see the lens comment yesterday. I’ll check with archer (brinyte rep) and see. I will say after this, I don’t think I’ll try to line up another one. I don’t know how those guys/gals do it who organize these all the time.

Interested in a bare pill.

If the bare pills don’t get available I’m in for a red one instead.

Are the White ones 5 mode like in your video?

Also, how much for the momentary on switch?
Thanks

Gear Best will not be stocking the momentary switch. I have put in an email this morning to brinyte about the modes. The Gear Best listing is confusing, so I asked what they’re sending gear best. The listing also says 1 mode for the color modules, and mine was two. I’ll let you know what I hear.

I just noticed that the red aand green will be a couple bucks cheaper. Since I’m planning on using them as hosts anyway if red or green get close to 50 in addition to the white I may switch to the colored ones instead.

If I understand correctly each type of light doesn’t have to reach 50 for its best price. 50 total lights sold, in any combination of white/colors, gives us the lowest price on all of them.

That is true. Gear Best confirmed it today. So yes, if you are planning on using it as a host then get the colored versions. I still have not confirmed the modes of the drivers, if they are different from what I reviewed.

I’ve probably exchanged nearly 20 emails/PMs this morning alone. FYI Brinyte said they’d be putting this light up on their aliexpress store and they could customize drivers and offer additional stuff. I don’t have the link yet, but maybe they’ll sell the bare pills? I don’t imagine the price would be as good, but it’s something to check out.

It’s a lot of work to do any kind of gb but especially for multiple choice items. Any who wish to complain should try doing it first. Much appreciated mhanlen.

Ok, so here’s the thing. Bare pills will not be made available in the group buy for sure. Gear Best does not want to sell them, but I have a work around- sort of. Archer from Brinyte said you could visit his AliExpress store, and message Brinyte asking for pill pricing. I have no idea what they’ll cost, but it’s the best I could do. Gear Best will still sell the colored pills with emitters in them. How would you like me to update your order? Let me know your updated total of lights by color, and pill by color (excluding white).

For everyone else, the OP has been updated with new information. Make sure to read.

Good question, I just asked and will let you know!

Also, if anyone wants a specific accessory you’ll have to go through brinytes Ali express store. Gear best will only include the rail mount with the light. Brinyte offers quite a few mounts and a pressure momentary on switch.

Which color, fine sir? I suggest if you’re putting in a new driver and led to get a red or green, or if you’ll use it as is for a while, to go with a white. Based upon pricing.

One further note: When we finally hit 50, gear best places and order with the supplier for that quantity. When we’re getting closer, 10-15 away I’ll nail down a hard cut off date. On that date we’ll see what number were at… Gear best hopefully will place and order… Then it’s 5-10 days till they stock them. I don’t know yet about when the payment needs to be happen… But I’ll push for, “when they physically receive stock.” Just trying to make this as transparent as possible, and I’ll share the info as I get it. But Gear Best won’t place that order until we hit a target quantity… I’d like that to be 50 units.. But if interest wanes… We might have to end it with what we have… I’m pretty sure we can hit 50 though.

Why on earth does Brinyte make a fancy new flashlight and then use the obsolete XP-E (red,green) instead of the XP-E2 that gives you 16% more light (at 1A) without altering anything else?????

Put me on the list for one red one.

“I used to think that top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that thirty years of good science could address these problems. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a cultural and spiritual transformation. And we scientists don’t know how to do that.”   (Gus Speth)
