scored a great deal! Preon P1 / $12

anyone else pick one of these up on a recent sale? I managed to grab 2 of them, $12 apiece. They had around 200 for sale. Yep, I should have bought a dozen of them! This is a great little AAA light. Five different programmable configurations.

One of the best deals I think I have ever gotten. $12, free shipping, even throw in a battery, no tax. What’s not to like? Great clip. Good switch.

sorry Mike, I should have said the sale was over. These 200 went very quickly at that price! $40 normally.

Thanks for the deal post Pat. I scored one P1. Nice light for the $12. Already modded… Stripped anno, 219B on a 10mm SinkPad and 28AWG silicone. Yes 28AWG was an upgrade to original non silicone wires they used
Honestly mine had issues with the threads to the head. Head was very loose as in it was about to strip or skip the threads. Also the clip would not work under the head (reversed). However the thicker sinkpad was enough to get the tube to contact the ground on MCPCB.

I did manage to also fix the loose threads by pressing in a 1/4 drive socket that has a nice smooth taper and was just right to expand the tube. Threads fit OK now. Once together I will just use the tail to swap batts.
Socket jammed in…
