stinks to see all these new people still signing up for their first light last min.

Why? It seems like a good thing to me. Not everyone will stick around, but some will.

Are you saying they should have done it sooner?

I’m confused by what you said.


Saying it kind of stinks for the people that have yet to find out about the light only have a couple hours to sign up

The GB has been open for over a year, so I would say people had plenty of time to get in on it. Most GB’s last only a few weeks or months at most.

It is sad but it had to come to an end at some point. Luckily 1500 BLF’ers got a big discount on this amazing light.

In for a second GT please

Coyotehawk (poor guy, so many new names Facepalm ) will add your names to his sign up list. You’ll see your name when he does the next update. It will be sometime mid January when you are emailed with the details of where to go and how to order. (Uses PayPal, btw)

You can also buy 8 of the Samsung 35E batteries for $40 at the same time as you buy the light. No sign up necessary for those. There are plenty of batteries in stock. Just add them at checkout.

Welcome to BLF, new members.

Ps, for everyone else, THE GROUP BUY IS STILL OPEN, BUT CLOSES TONIGHT! If you want one, say so in this thread so you will be included. Price is $157 shipping included. After that it could be $250 or whatever price Lumintop decides on.

All the latest updates are in post #1.

Just so people are aware, if we should happen to run out of the first 1500 lights (I doubt that will happen, but it is possible), there will be no guarantees for those over 1500. Although we will try to get lumintop to honor them with the next batch they are under no obligation to do so.

At the current rate of drop-outs we can except around 200-250 people to drop out (so the list could get to 1700-1750 people and still have enough, in theory), so this should not be a problem but I want to give fair warning since so many people are singing up here on the last day.

The alternative option is I close the GB right now and no one even gets a shot at the cheaper price. I figured people would at least like a shot at the GB price.

Agreed. Like I said, I understand why lumintop put a deadline on it. They are seeing very slim profit from this group buy I am sure. I am glad I came back to the forum when I did and snagged one for the price I did.

Got it charged up… Took it out, called my neighbor who was impressed with my varapower ‘light sabre’… Lives around the corner, no direct line of sight, 150 yds as the crow flies..
I am on the deck waving it around, he is saying ‘where where.. I dont .. holy F****.. Honey look at this.. (laughing his ass off)… (wife)Is that Tony’s new light??? ‘
I am hitting trees and houses all down the block and Dan is just laughing and going OMG’. You could hear his daughter laughing.
He said the beam went pretty dam high. The VP I have wasn’t quite ready to do a comparo though…

Giggles is a perfect name
!

anyone in NE ILLinois into get togethers?

Along with many others, I’m sure, I do have a slight feeling of apprehension. I found myself at #1280 on the list and waited patiently. A couple of weeks went by and got an email saying to pay. Did so, got the reply from PayPal and a note from Neal asking for BLF name and phone number. Sent those in with the PayPal transaction number. I have not seen a PM to me at all during the entire time I’ve been waiting and lurking, and no further emails at all.

With the group buy closing and so many new orders, are there those that have paid as I have but have no forum PM to back up their claim? Will we get passed by?

Nearly biting my nails, here!

I’m not sure how that’s possible. The purchase link was in the PM, (the email is just a notification of a new PM).

There’s a chance you’ve been phished…


Let’s not jump to conclusions. He said he got his paypal receipt and the email from Neal, so it sounds legit.

He is also protected using Paypal. He can always file a claim if need be.

Northbeard, did you pay on Madmax’s website?

Edit, I sent TA a PM to see if he was sent the purchase information. There might have been a few people accidentally sent the Purchase info who shouldn’t have. It was a mass PM setup by the forum owner so not perfect.


It is all legit. A small mistake in ordering, but it’s all worked out. No need to worry about it.

northbeard…. Clear things up.

Did you get an “email saying to pay” ‘OR’ a PM (Personal Message) here on BLF saying to pay??

There is a big difference. Which did you get asking for payment??


It is legit, a mistake, but legit.

He didn’t get scammed. Lol

Just wanted to share a comment regarding the batteries received with my light today.

The work and attention to detail used in applying the button tops is amazing. I have seen and own examples were button top alignment is off, or the wraps are wrinkled and crooked. Not on these. Thanks for sourcing these quality cells to offer at an amazing price.

Oh, almost forgot to say the light is pretty amazing also, but there are plenty of testaments to that fact already.
