WTS - BLF LT1 logo wrapped battery sets - $30 shipped USPS (US only)

NOTICE
11/13 – Work and Work related travel will have me overly busy for at least the next 7-10 days.

As much as I’d like to, I will not be able to assemble/ship much – if at all – in the near future. I can still talk about what you want and get your orders lined up, but please assume that no orders for items I don’t already have assembled will ship till Thanksgiving week.

——————-

Batteries – new Sanyo NCR18650GA tall flat tops (compatible with ring contact lights like SP36, Q8, LT1 without the need for adding buttons). The OEM wraps have been removed to reduce the diameter of the finished product. I don’t have an exact measurement, but I’ve been using the somewhat tight tube of an FW3A as a size checker, and all these will fit in.

Wraps – color printed with LT1 logo and identifiers for battery A, B, C and D in the set, clear over-wrap.

What you get – 4 batteries in matching wraps (design of your choice) with 2 double battery cases of your choice, shipped USPS w/ tracking.

Ordering – Reply to the thread with the color wrap you want (White, Obnoxious Yellow, etc), the style you want (Budget Light Forum, A BLF Collaboration, Let There be Light) and the type/color of case you want. If no preference of cases is supplied when you claim a set, I’ll consider it dealer’s choice and ship whatever amuses me.

Payment – I can take Paypal, USPS MO, Zelle, and if you’re around metro Atlanta, FTF Cash is an option. If you want to use PP, go ahead and PM me your PP address and I’ll send a payment request.

Shipping – I’ll typically get your batteries on their way in a day or two from receipt of payment.

Details:
Each set of 4 comes with your choice of two cases. All four in a set will have the same motto / design. Feel free to mix & match case colors and plastic/silicon, but understand my supply of some colors is limited.

Below are images of the designs I have available to ship or can put together with stock on hand.

As people claim sets, I’ll put their user name next to the entry and DM/PM them to arrange payment. As payment is received and items are shipped, I’ll update again.

The color sets are not currently assembled, but if you buy one, I’ll get it together and on its way in a few days.

I’ll prioritize requests by post order. If someone else has claimed a set before you, I’ll do my best to accommodate.

If you want more of a particular type or color than I have listed as available, go ahead and claim them. I’ll work with you on a schedule to get them made & shipped.

“I’m Interested” is not “I’ll Take ____”

These are the options for your case choice:

What company did you order the batteries from?
Why label them 3300 mAh? I see that’s what the manufacturer says is the rated capacity. Seems most retailers advertise them as 3500.
Thx

Just discovered this wonderful addiction.

3300 is the ‘rated’ value given on the factory data sheet. They are commonly advertised at or around 3500, and they typically test at or near that number.

I purchased them from a local vape shop that offers a nice discount when you buy way too many for a sane person. The 3d barcode on the OEM wrapper matches the printing on the metal case, they have the proper tall flat top, and test to the expected capacity, so I’m confident these are not offshore clones.

I have no problem with DIY.
As I stated in – was it the Lantern thread, or the Interest thread – I’ll be making printable files available. Print & trim on a local color printer, use locally sourced batteries and clear shrink tube. PM me a request for the printable files with your email address and I’ll send you the printable files when they’re ready.

Since I have no idea what batteries these will go on, the battery data block will be missing, and I’d rather leave them uncut instead of cutting them too short for your battery or leaving a damndably hard to trim fraction of a mm in need of removal.

I’ll look into the details of sending the printed pages and some shrink tube via standard mail, but I’m unfamiliar with international mail.

This is pretty dam cool…
I have a ton of batteries, never though of printing a label and clear wrapping it.. the A-B-C-D ID marker is smart !
I keep my Q8 30q physically grouped as matched sets…with this though….. Brilliant!

anyone in NE ILLinois into get togethers?

Known good cells from trusted sources with custom wraps.  What's not to like?

 

I'll take two sets:

CASES

2) neon yellow(?) silicone cases (at top left in the pic)

2) white silicone cases

 

CELLS

Bright Yellow: BLF  – (1) set of four cells

Pure White (when available): BLF - (1) set of four cells

 

No rush & PM sent.

 

Thanks!

slmjim

Great... Carnac the Magnificent tells me I just signed up for yet another expensive hobby.

Smile! It makes others wonder what you've been up to.

I have you listed as Claimed Paid for a white set of BLF Collaboration, Dealer’s Choice on cases.
Note: Your paypal said BLF, but the post says A BLF Collaboration, so I’m running with the Collaboration set.

I’ll have to assemble the Yellow. Both are marked as Claimed

Many places sell the Sanyo NCR18650GA as a 3500mah battery because it often tests near that value. The factory data sheet on this battery only claims 3300mah, so that’s how I’m identifying it.

You got it.

The only thing I have left pre-assembled is one set of “A BLF Collaboration”.

If anyone has a specific request, lets get your orders started so I can get them ready when I have some time this weekend.

Sorry I’m just getting to this now…been a pretty chaotic week.

Just wanted to give proper thanks to Amishbill and some feedback for anyone who was sitting on the fence about a purchase.

Great job and very prompt/professional transaction!

CJ – thanks for the feedback. It means a lot when I’m not the only one saying my stuff is good. Thumbs Up

Matkinson – You should have a tracking number.

electricjelly – the wraps you asked for are ready – just waiting for your paypal address and/or shipping address will ship Monday.

——————————-
Currently assembled and ready to go:
1 set A BLF Collaboration on white
1 set Let There Be Light on white
1 set Budget Light Forum on white, but the negative end of the D cell’s wrap is a little rougher than I’d like it. 90% of folks would not notice/care, but this one falls a hair shy of my standards. I’ll toss in an extra set of cases if anyone takes these before I get around to taking them apart and re-wrapping them.

I posted a positive review in the rechargeable batteries sub forum on these cells & the overall transaction  'cause I didn't know where else to post it.

One set White / random silicon solid color cases.

The design only has three variations – the text under the logo. Do you want “Budget Light Forum”, “Let There Be Light”, or “A BLF Collaboration”?
