11.11 What did you Score? Flashlights or other Stuff you Don't Need.

Wondering what everyone got?

There Was some money in my PP account, now it’s GONE.

The one I am most anticipating arrival on is the Skilhunt H03 NW for $24.11
Wanted that headlight for a while and finally got a deal too good to pass up.

Got a $10 UT01 3D 5000K 14500/AA side SW light. Has the risk of known issues but still wanted one to work on. Worth the price if it works or still to mod/Fix up.
The TIP CRI in grey for $11.11 was a whim, too good to pass up and got it in same order as the UT01. I was able to use points!! for another 30%off both lights.
After points the TIP was about $7.80 and the UT01 was $7

Bought 2X of the LiitoKala Lii – 202 on separate orders for less than $4ea shipped. Gifts…

Non Flashlight items were too cheap to say no.
COZZINE Digital Instant Read Thermometer for $1.43 shipped It is a digital stick thermometer I will use in the shop to check things like thermostst opening or AC testing.
150mm 6 inch LCD Digital Caliper Carbon Fiber Vernier – BLACK for $6 to use on batteries or what ever else. Always need another caliper
3.5m Mini Android Endoscope – BLACK for $5 Always wanted one and it was $5 Many uses in the shop. Really hope it works.
COB LED Pen Shaped Work Light For $1.11 shipped. These are nice and I have several. Just gave Mom a replacement for the one she lost last weekend. Yeah it had Eneloops in it too.
295mm Flexible Shaft Screwdriver Bit $0.99 shipped I guess if I need it, I got it, even if it only lasts one use.
DC 6V – 24V Auto Car Truck Motorcycle Circuit Voltage Tester – LUXURY GOLD COLOR for $1.11 I got several of these. I have an Old German Hazet Brand tester just like it. I guess thats what they copied. I drive old junk so 10 pcs. should cover every glove box and toolbox still have stocking stuffers for car buddies that like Hazet tools.

I had my eye on the Xiaomi Wiha 24 in 1 Precision Screwdriver Kit but failed on the good deal 2 times. Saw this other electric screwdriver before but though that’s expensive. Well, I ended up buying myself one for $21.87 shipped, tracked. Has most of the bits in the Wiha set so what the heck. Xiaomi WOWSTICK 1fs 19 in 1 Electric Screwdriver Set – SILVER

I had the Skilhunt in my cart, then let it pass, congratulated myself on my self restraint (budget will be really tight for up to 3 months as sale goes through on a rental property we had and now have no income from)

Then the non-buyer remorse set in, told myself I had to let myself have something. So I put 2 other things in my cart, since the $24 coupon was gone. It reappeared again, so I swapped back, deleted the others, and congratulated myself on that instead. Big Smile

Beam me up!

Bought nothing since most of the deals were fake promotional prices.

Bought a few grow light cob leds, electrical consumables (heat shrink, voltmeter display unit, CH340G USB/serial, silicone AWG, connectors, ..) and a few slingshot items where the seller accidentally priced it to 9 cents. In total less than 10 bucks. Big Smile

Nothing else, I am glad I resisted every single Gearbest offer I came across. I already had the Nitecore Tip CRI in my basket. after points way cheaper than anything anybody could build. But still didn’t purchase it.

I was going to buy BLF A6 since it was now for on sale 18$ (Last week the same light was priced at 28$) but since I’ve heard some bad things about it I decided I’ll pass.

and on the first day he said "Let there be light"...

Actually – just the Zanflare F2 for my parents. I was hoping for the F1 but I missed the promo. I also missed a couple of other sales (one of them because Gearbest’s own countdown clock was extremely inaccurate). I also got myself a CHUWI C-100 car charger but that’s before promo codes and it was … cheaper than during officiel 11.11 sales.

Your link goes to the wrong product, but I’m guessing you were referring to this one?
https://www.gearbest.com/multimeters-fitting/pp_399825.html

Do you own any others that are same/similar? I’m wondering about it’s accuracy. Obviously, at this price I’m not expecting miracles, but just hoping it’s good enough…

I am so glad that 11.11 is over – I can’t stand those “massive” discounts on AE…
0.06$ off the old price on a 30$ product – wow, what a deal…

If you know the normal prices of products, you will see that 90% of those “discounts” aren’t really good offers – many sellers put 1-2$ shipping on products, so in the end, you have the same price as before.

BG ang GB give us GLF Users enough discounts, we have 11.11 all year long Big Smile

Thanks Pete, fixed the link.
Between home and my shop I must have 7 various calipers. Digital, Dial and the basic $3 Vernier slide.
I have a good older digital Starrett with 0.0005”/0.01mm accuracy here I will compare it to when the CF one arrives.
I have some relatively cheap ones sub $30 that have been great. Even an old plastic General tool dial (my first).
One cheaper stainless steel caliper I have is in decimal inch and mm but also displays 1/128 fractions. That one is neat, no brain work converting. Nice for sorting drill bits or measuring pipe or bolts.
Don’t have a non-metallic one at home so thought it would be nice for the price. Displays only 0.1mm / 0.01 inch so I wouldn’t call it accurate. But for what I need, if it works it’s good.
Will let you know.

100B and endoscope from GB, also a 4pak of VTC6es for 20bux, dunno if that’s a good deal or not.

Went kinda ape5#!+ on AX, got some relays I needed, some 1800K LED goodies for scrounging the chips, some interesting drivers, and a trio of SP10Bs.

well, the resolution may be low, but it could still be accurate. Smile

Thanks. By the time you get it, the sale will be over. Smile I went ahead and ordered it. I don’t own any calipers, analog or digital, so I just wanted to try something.

I’ve had an iGaging Absolute Origin 8” one sitting on my Amazon shopping list for a while now, but at $50+, I never pulled the trigger.

That iGaging Absolute Origin 8” seems pretty nice for the price. Think my old Starrett with same accuracy rating was almost $300 new. I got it used for free.
It may be overkill for a caliper because any machinist would use micrometers for accuracy, not a caliper. Calipers are a flawed design for accuracy.
So, I hear that the $10-15 HFT are fine for general measuring. Just make sure its the +-0.001 not 0.01. Most are very similar in looks and layout. Prolly all made by the same place different branding. Just like the display on the $6 CF model. So the $30 one may be exactly the same as HFT one on sale for $10. If you have a local store you can always take it back.

Yeah I was thinking that when I said I’ll let yo know. But for $6 it’s worth a shot. 350+ reviews and still holding a 4.88 out of 5.00 rating.
I am sure it sill suit the general needs of most.

Most of the deals were crap. Got an $11.00 heart monitor blood pressure watch for my mom. It was marked down from $63.00 but that’s prolly a fake price to make it seem like a good deal.

Best regards,

Matthew

I’ve had quite a lot of stuff on my AE wishlist waiting for these deals, but most of them where already discounted before, they just dropped the regular discount and put up a slightly higher discount, so it’s good, but not amazing. Many items where not even discounted. Anyway, got a TIP CRI from GB after swearing not to buy anything from them before, but I’ve been softened because of a deal on the utorch ut01 which seems unavailable on the other 2 of the big 3 (BG, GB and AE). Also a lot of accessories and trinkets from AE, and the Lumintop Tool AA and HL from BG. I think I’m done for the year, maybe the Nitecore TINI for christmas

very underwhelmed, personally.
I see news reports of fantastic sales numbers for the day. Can’t prove it here.

I got a Wiha screwdriver set for $18.99 on 11/10 which after the sale they reduced to $17.99
and a GS320 Non-contact Digital IR Infrared Thermometer for $6.99 also on 11/10 which was a whopping $1.00 saving over the Flash Sale price of $7.99

I’m not inclined to spend any time on Black Friday on these sites.

I ordered 25 more of these little volt meters. They come in 5 different colors and I ordered 5 more of each. Cost a little over a buck a piece at BG. I have been putting them in battery operated stuff to keep track of voltage. These bluetooth – mp3 players have Li-ion cells that suddenly cut off at around 3.2V. Nice to know when they should be recharged.
