How many lights do you have in the mail right now?

I usually always have a light on the way… but just now i think i have something like 8 9!

- 1 x Convoy S2+ Nichia UV
- 1 x IR 3W P60 drop-in
- 1 x BLF A6 NW
- 1 x BLF X5 NW
- 3 × 348 Nichia NVSW219BT – V1 240Lm Mini 10440 from a GB here
- 1 x Trustfire Mini 05 – already have 01, 02 and 03
- 1 x Tool titanium AAA light… from a GB here too…

…and a few high drain cells on the way too.

That will increase my condition collection by about 20%.

I just bought a hard aluminum case to store my batteries and a charger.
I signed up for a copper AAA in yet another GB… and now i’m looking at the Thorfire S70… because it looks much better then my Fandyfire XHP70.

Do i need help? lol Innocent

Zero! The only thing I’m waiting on are a few springs that were ordered over 2months ago, so probably never coming.

With 135+ already here, I THINK I have a triple Lixosomething on the way (a review light from robo), a copper Tool from Massdrop, and while it seems like there’s something else, I really can’t remember. I know there’s 10 trits en-route that should be close to getting here, and some clear Holstex for a light holster , on the list for the Thorfire S50 but it’s out of stock or it’d be on order too.

I can quit anytime I want to…

Edit: Lixada 3800 lumen triple, had to look it up. Silly

- BLF 348 ×2
- Some random other cheapo $2.50 light I threw in the shopping cart when buying the 348s
- BLF A6 × 2 (black and unanodized)
- MH20 from a too-good-to-be-true group code here on the forum
- S20R on closeout from Illumn, that ones for a family member. I swear
- Armytek Prime A1 Pro (possibly last generation) also on closeout from Illumn

When I actually have the whole list in front of me I’m kind of embarrassed. Hope the wife doesn’t see this.

4 x BLF-348 (Received today.)
1 x Thorfire S70

And I just canceled my order for the Thorfire S50 after receiving a notice of it being out of stock, otherwise I’d be waiting for that one, too.

I’m embarrassed to admit. It’s been a few years since I modded a light. I Felt the need to get caught up… I’m caught up.

I agonize greatly before buying a light (and research like mad). I would like to buy that Starry light with infinite modes when i have the money though.

3 lights at the moment. Manker U11, Klarus G30, and BLF A6.

I just figured out that since joining this forum
I have spent around £400_on new lights and equipment so I think I’m going to lay off on buying new lights for the time being and learn to mod my own.

This forum really does cause temptation for your wallet.

Has anyone pondered the budget point? Is it that we feel we’ve saved money on a budget light so it’s ok to buy another? If we buy expensive lights, is one enough? Are we, like our women, so sorely tempted by a “deal”? Just why is it that we keep ordering more lights? We only have 2 hands, right?

Think I’m gonna have to do another give-away so I’ll feel better about it all… Wink

My justification is I look at my other more expensive hobbies and figure flashlights are pretty harmless. I can have a shelf full of flash lights or a garage full of bicycles. Other hobbies I could get into are way more time consuming, expensive, or have other drawbacks: golfing, cars, guns. It makes an extra $30 for one with a slightly different emitter seem reasonable.

I haven’t spent a nickel on lights in years. It’s just time to upgrade to modern LEDs.

Take this old P4. It was my first ever MagMod. Sure it still works but an XM-L2 could make it so much better.! It doesn’t even have a driver board. Just a single resistor.

On top of the modding parts and supplies there are a handful of hosts and complete lights cruising my way on the slow boat. For my money, I expect hard working tools… That’s all.

Secretly, I’m hoping for a few ooohs and aaaahs around the campfire.

had to use up GB points?

recommendation on here for the boruit rj02 headlight… and i tossed in the 878 with charger and throwaway 2 batteries to use up the rest and round out the order, lol…

two incoming…

this is only the second time i ever ordered from china and all are from GB.

if this order goes thru without a hitch? GB will be my main china thing… MTN in the USA is TOO DANG COOL not to use it for emitters and drivers, but… china is the huge selection.

==============================

needing to use up expiring points and the “flash sale” was too good to pass up on something i wanted anyways… (the head light)

With enough black coffee and cigarettes? all things are possible…

I am currently still shipping… REAL GENUINE CREE xp-g emitters, the classic… brace yourself? as low as 20 cents apiece!! Check out the SALES THREAD, everyone is happy… then PM me

SALES THREAD:
http://budgetlightforum.com/node/52528

if you are into reloading? this is my site… I inherited the remains of what was once arguably the best reloading site on the internet… its the “BLF” of reloading sites…

http://reloadbench.freeforums.net/

if you think night vision would be cool? It IS… this site i am a member of, and its basically the “BLF” of home made scratch-built digital night vision. They are at the leading forefront of advanced DIY for digital night vision, and thats gun mounted or handheld… builds rival and exceed commercial offerings…

Just one; a cheap FastTech camo SK68; ordered as a gift for my five-year old nephew as he likes flashlights, and this is a cool option for him with good runtime from a AA alkaline:
https://www.fasttech.com/p/4168702

Yeah, it will have an annoying next-mode-memory driver I’ll pencil-mod out, and a generic LB emitter, but he’ll still like it…

Though I was done bit ordered these two S5 look-a-likes on AE today, for under $5 for the two, one being silver.
Should be interesting hosts.

As a starter I justify
1 a bunch for getting a nice all round collection. (I mean Convoy C8, Convoy S2+, stock Jacobs A60,/Colrui, Sipik 98/68 clone, Uniquefire 1504, Uniquefire T20, Uniquefire 1401, SRK stock, Cometa, cutting edge X5/X6)

2 free for reviews, Thorfire S50 S70, a Darktort on the way and hoping to get Convoy BD0x.

3/special needs
43cm long baton shaped light for near all the doors and 1 with red difuser build in for the car. Magnetic tailed lights with 1 throwy led at the end and a strip for flood on the side stuck to the fridges of our kitchens.
A light rated for diving since our pool is 2,20 m deep and the others rate 2 meters at best Big Smile
UV lights
The X65 Warson to aid in lighting because of its nice tripod nut.

4 educational, SRKs for learning to mod, C8 screw in pill, some budget thingies. The above mentioned cheapies.

5/ budget lights on my quest to find real good real budget lights, some nice things have been found.

6 strange lights (the gifted dual emitter light, the recoil thrower, the sharp eagle in transit, the dual head dual switch we call “Wall-E light” the dual battery tubed Small sun T07s, just too strange not to buy

7 we plan my son and me, to make videos about all of them and mod a lot when we get better at modding so this last part is like having a golden ticket to flashlight heaven you see Smile

And well I see troubles with poor quality cells easy bought and used , only look at those hoverboards So I put am effort in getting the Li Ion safety 101/text translated into many languages and my wife supports those kind of actions fully so I am having a good time and she is not disliking it at all.

Do remember a few months back we had nothing good and now two shelves full of lights and a whole bunch of tools and modding stuff.

I have an Olight M10 on the way. I don’t need it, but I figured since the deal price was only $15.99, I can always sell it if I don’t like it.
