dorpmuller how are you doing and welcome back! I think the light is exceptionally good value for the price you paid, but usually you can get lights for less than advertised flash sales prices by using a code. There are members (for example M4D M4X, freeme, FIN17) here who can provide you with a code. Check them out!

Wasn't sure about that... came up as 50% off for CES or some such...either way, I figured it was cheap and coming from (so they say) a U.S. warehouse... we'll see.

Thanks for the kind words!

Lucky you. I went to check it out and see a pathetic $1 discount.

This light is built like a tank. Mine steps down from turbo in like 10 seconds though.

Don’t know how much you paid, but with coupon BGCVM3 price is $36

Never trust discount percentage they write on product page, that’s never true.

What about the $18 off new user coupon on BG link. That make it like $21 bucks with shipping $24 to the door. Anyone tried it yet?
Just wondering if it works in the US store.

You would have to spend hundreds of dollars in order to get that coupon.

Said the coupon was already applied. That's OK, at least I don't have to wait for China shipping. That's the reason I grabbed it. Patience was left out of my wiring at the factory!

I hear ya. My patience is running thin as well. I’m happy to pay a few more bucks to avoid the totally unpredictable China shipping.

What battery are you using?

Also you can get it from Fasttech for $36.38 that’s where I’m getting mine.
They also still have all 4 color modes.

You might like signing up for an account at m4dmax https://m4dm4x.com/m4d-m4x-deals/

Once you have an account and log in there, you will be able to see and search for discounted prices for a ton of lights. Most MSRP are 1.5-2x more expensive than the common sale price.

Got the light. Very solid build, nice heft, love the matte finish. (don't like glossy) Anduril ruined me... I'd give a lot to have ramping. Medium needs to be a little brighter for night dog walks, (but I'm old and need a good 5-600 lumens to see comfortably) high is excellent and turbo screams! IF you use a Shockli.

Tint is a nice neutral yellow, ~5000k guessing. No complaints. cool

 

Get one!
