YLP coupon for BLF

Since a couple of years I’ve been working in collaboration with the Russian flashlight brand YLP, helping it out to develop the torches and to make them more attractive for Russian flashaholics. I am really happy to see that there is a certain interest for these lights at BLF - as well as for special discounts Smile

I discussed the discount option with the YLP management and they were glad to offer a coupon code for all torches available at the international page of the YLP store: http://ylplight.com/en/shop/

Coupon: BLF-1 (until the end of June) , -20%

BLF-10 – 10% for all lights (valid until 31.12.2019)
BLF-20 – 20% for Panda 3R, Panda 2M-CRI and Gryphon G180 (valid until 31.08.2019)

// Besides, if you have any questions regarding YLP torches, you may ask them here and I will try to answer or will forward them to the YLP.

Any chance they might go into Gearbest or similar stores one day?

Thinking about getting a Falcon FH5, it’s pretty hard to find a good headlamp in the 2xAA class… but regarding its waterproofness, is there an O-ring in the head? All the site says is

Question The telescoping part has a smooth surface so in theory there’s place for one

Thanks! I just ordered the Gryphon G180. It’s been on my radar for a while now. From the reviews I’ve read, I really like that it can sustain turbo for a practicable amount of time.

I don’t think so, but I can ask:)
Сurrently you can buy these torches from ebay or YLP-store.

Yes, there is one O-ring in front of the TIR.

No, only the basic UI. But it’s also quite complicated:)

Currently, only Panda 2M-CRI have a hidden customizable UI.

Some torches have a slightly changeable UI – for example, “ON/OFF Memory function” (Gryphon G18, G180, Sherp S15, Panda 2M/2R, Falcon FH5), or changes the order of modes (Falcon F15, F20).

I am asking because I need to offload points before they expire. Not a big deal if they do, but I had good experience with GB in the past years. Also GB shipping works for me.

I would recommend you to use GB-points for buying something else, as currently YLP doesn’t plan to work with GB.

According to maukka’s review, the G180 is not: “ YLP Gryphon G180 review with measurements (9*XP-G2, 3*18650)”:http://budgetlightforum.com/node/60286
A couple of others also posted that they emitter swapped with Nichia 219C and Samsung LH351D.

What are the shipping rates to the U.S.? Looked around the site, may have over looked it.

Not bad. I did see one I liked. G180 I think. Reasonable price as well.

FYIYLP ships via registered mail. Transit time for my light was 20 days, arrived today Big Smile (not bad, considering). However, registered mail requires signature upon receipt. If you are not home during the day, it might be a good idea to have your order shipped to a friend or family member who is.

The coupon code BLF-1 expires on the 1st May.

Actually, I can ask YLP for other discount options. If there is any interest, pls write here what lights you would like to have on offer.

You can ask for stainless steel bezel for G180. This thin aluminum seems to me very fragile.

As a result, YLP just extended the coupon BLF-1 until June July 1 Wink

Upd. Oops, that was a typo.

Thank you. I’ve used that coupon code twice already on a couple of headlights. I like them both. Thanks

@fnksb – Are you aware that Paypal blocks payment in some countries? (Austria in this case)

Could be a result of the sanctions… Either way, it’s bad

Thank you for information.

I have never heard of any problems with PayPal payment before, many people from Europe buy YLP-lights. Perhaps this is really related to the type of account?

Yes, could be.
It didn’t work for a friend of mine and I don’t know the details of his account, all I know is it said something like “transaction denied due to regulatory requirements”, which sounds a lot like “because someone doesn’t like it”.

I ordered earlier today and it worked. My PP is tied to my credit card, maybe PP has a problem with anonymous accounts sending $$ to Russia.

Curious. I attempted to check out the shop to use the coupon and the site timed out (looked suspiciously like it was blocked). I use a local cable internet service here in the US, I’ve never known them to block anything. Anyway, I logged in with a VPN using an overseas entry point and the site loaded fine. Does anyone know if it’s being blocked on the US side or the other, and why? Now I’m wondering if I should just stay away, don’t want to cause trouble or do anything inappropriate.

I live in Ohio and I bought a YLP Panda 2m CRI for a worker a couple of months ago from there website and got it in like 3 weeks. Like it so much i bought one for myself again a couple of weeks after that and got it again in like 3 weeks. I also just recently bought a Falcon f15 and a scorpion x8 a couple of weeks ago and waiting for them in the mail all paid with paypal.

I placed an order yesterday but never got an email confirmation that it was accepted (other than the PayPal email). Any reason to be concerned or is this just normal?
