They are doing some restructuring on the site right now and have ALL codes disabled. We should know something very soon.

Jason had told me when I first ask that they had deactivated ALL codes for everyone , until things were sorted and the “Big Boss” gave him the final word.
I have emailed Jason 3 times about the codes. I have not gotten a response from the last 2 at all , so I am thinking they are not going to reactivate the codes that were active for anyone before the restructure. Jason has always been very good in the past about answering emails fairly promptly until this whole thing , so I am taking it after all this time the codes are just gone for good.

They restructured to more of a “bulk pricing” and the way it seems to be set up now is the more you buy the larger the discount.
Still some good prices on some of their stuff in comparison with others though , so it is still worth a look for me when I need cells or a charger or anything of that nature , especially with them being one of the very FEW dealers based in the USA.

bump…

Wanted to stock up on some non-‘650s, and no-go on “BLF15”, either.

No particular rush… think it’s worth just chillaxing for a while to see if anything shakes loose?

I’d love to see that 15% discount come back. I’m looking to build a big battery pack for an ebike, and that 15% would be huge.

The low mode should be lower.

I am pretty sure they are not going to bring back any of the codes they had before the restructure guys.

Wish there was something more I could do , but I am just the messenger.

Yeah, that’s fine if you want to stock up on an 8-pack or so, but it bites ya if you only need 1-2 of a kind.

“Bulk pricing”, “quantity discount”, etc., sounds good, ‘til you flip it around and see you’re being “punished” for only needing 1-2 of each, even if you want quite a few [different] items.

Eh, hope they reconsider…

I wanted to use the code but apparently is not working anymore, I want to buy a charger from them and the code would certainly make the price very competitive… Crying

Can we have the code back?

If we can’t get the code could we at least get a code.
I have made a few purchases recently and there was no discount for buying in quantity. If I had a code I would probably up my order total and use them more often. I can purchase from other US based stores and get a discount when I purchase more batteries.

Yeah, a code would be great. It would somewhat offset their fairly high shipping charges.

My last purchase from IMR was 8-Efest 3500mah. It did sting a bit!
If I had a code at the time, I would have spent more!

Anyone got any reccomendations for another site with great 18650 protected cells? That’s a real shame on the code. Going to try gearbest, banggood, or dealextreme Smile

IMRBatteries is a great place to buy batteries in the states .
we are just BUDGETlightforums and are cheap enough to complain over losing such a small discount . The Chinese sites you mentioned (except deal extreme)are cheaper if you’re willing to wait . IMRbatteries is a really nice source to have .

Well, the 15% code did not work for me either, however they were the only place that had the Sony VTC5a’s in stock, hopefully, the fact that they have stock when other places don’t is just how things worked out, and not an indication that there should be any problems w/those batteries.

The Code has been disabled for over a year folks. At last report it will not be coming back.
Still a great & trustworthy place to order from.

I asked Jason about getting a code back for the forum just before Christmas (2017) and he said the big guy (his boss) was not issuing any codes because of the “bulk rate” pricing they changed over to.
In other words the more you buy the bigger the discount , is the way it is supposed to work.

Unfortunately for those of us who only buy 2 cells up to half a dozen at a time , usually the bulk pricing just really does not help us.

If I am ever able to get another code I will be sure it is posted immediately.

For now though I will usually rather pay a dollar or so a cell more to get the faster delivery and not have to deal with all the waiting from the overseas shipping especially if I am getting 6 or less cells.

EDIT: If you keep an eye on their site they DO run some killer sales at times. I got six LG HE4’s for $3.50 each when they stopped carrying the button top ones several months back.

I’m sure that did sting. Why not buy the original name brand cells underneath instead of 2 dollars more per cell or higher for a rewrapped lower grade cell. Most cells that the public gets are b grade anyways. The a grades all go for oem use. But efest abd imren buy the cheap low b and c grade cells and sell them higher then the parent cell underneath would be. 3500 it’s either a GA, mj1, or 35 e. Or wouldn’t surprise me given efest reputation if it’s Panasonic ncr b cells. But hopefully not and Probsbly not. They purchase the c grade cells for around 20 cents a piece then charge you up to 10 dollars for it. Insane profit margins those 3 cells are around 5-6 dollars a cell. Just guessing those efest were probably 8 9 dollars a piece?

Take a read at this. Efest and other constantly get busted for putting in crap cells. Just in October there 20 amp cell was the Panasonic be cell rated at 6 amps. This explains rewrapped, hell you could probably buy your own efest shrink wrap for 10 cents a piece and save money and make your own efest batteries just like they do.

Blf has changed a lot since I've been here. Lots of snow flakes and easily offended over nothing. When the forum use to be great and people joked around and could take a joke. It's a forum it's not that serious. Let's make BLF great again!
