I just wanted everybody informed about this flaw

What flaw? Im pretty sure that is misleading. I think the “general” consensus was Den either had a defective unit or used a defective battery to do his test and (I may be wrong) but I dont think he repeated/published the test using a different battery. If it was the battery, using that battery would have been unadvisable in any light. I dont believe others that tested the T1 produced temps that were above acceptable limits. Sure the design could be better, but its not problematic if common sense is used. Saying it is dangerous when you use a defective battery should only be necessary when educating someone that doesnt know anything about Li-ion batts. I have 3 T1s(gave one to my 92yo mum) and I dont think you can beat em for $16…. Also, I have something to use to make the 2.5+ year wait for THIS Lantern bearable.

Im not a Pessimist …. just an Optimist with a lot of experience

No one wants you to leave the group buy. But with the interest list over 1000, if you do decide to not purchase 3 lanterns some one will scoop them up eventually.

Nice picture!

I have an interesting story to go along with the snippet of your quote that sums up the thinking entirely…

I had been with Verizon Fios ever since they came to my area, which, at the time, was almost nine years. I liked the service (I still have it), but it was costing a lot of money. Both Comcast and Direct TV were bombarding my mailbox with offers to get me to switch to them from Fios. Money was tight, so I called Verizon. The conversation with the CSR went something like this:

Them: Thanks for being one of the earliest Fios customers Sir. What can I do for you?
Me: Thanks for the Thanks! I’m calling now because money is tight and I’m looking at switching to one of these cheaper services that are clamoring for my business.
Them: I’m sorry to hear that. Is there anything wrong with your service?
Me: No. My service is just fine, but the money…
Them: Who is it that you are looking into? As a longtime Fios customer, you are already in our best pricing category for returning customers.
Me: I’m looking into Comcast and Direct TV.
Them: Okay. Hold for a few moments for me please…



Them: Sir?
Me: Yes?
Them: As I mentioned earlier, you are already in our best pricing category. If you leave, we’ll be disappointed to see you go, but we’ll see you when you come back.

Verizon has so many customers that losing one to another company will result in a zero net loss for them. They probably signed up 100 customers nationwide for Fios while they were on the phone with me.

The loss of one is the gain of many more.

All I know is that every BLF Special Light has ended up being one of my best lights ans they are the ones that get used the most by far.

So put me down for 2 more.

Thank You to all that have put in so much time and effort to make this the “Best Lantern Ever”

I hope others who have bought the Zanflare Z1 have better luck than i have had with them.. (The first one i bought failed after attempting to mod, and a second un-modded Z1 drained its cell with an internal charger problem: – see the topic: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/62250 (in my last two posts on page # 5 , about the first one failed after a mod attempt, then a second factory Z1 i bought for a friend back in August had failed.

I would have waited longer to post an interest list update but didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to welcome two first time post authors to BLF. Welcome to Klocknov who joined BLF today, presumably to show and interest in this lantern, and r777, who has been a member for over 4 years, but again first post showing an interest in this lantern. Beer Big Smile Beer

I have not looked at any other BLF group buys, but the number of folks who have joined BLF to show an interest in this lantern is enlightening to me. Wink

I see Ryobi has a hybrid work light with color adjustment from 2700 to 5000. This color adjustment thing is blowing up.
