What a Deal!

Two flashlights, four 18650 button top cells AND a 4-bay charger for $19!

The lights zoom and have three modes including STROBE

The cells are actually rated a possibly reasonable 3,000 mah

The charger implied to be Li ion and Nimh compatible

Greatest Deal Ever

I think I’d rather lick door knobs than use those cells and charger.

The flashlights are “Skid-proof, waterproof, explosion-proof.” So that’s good!

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

But it doesn’t have “FIRE”in the name. Must be legit, right?

I hope you’re joking, otherwise you need to educate yourself on cheap cells and chargers

No, any fire insurance excludes the fires started by these cells.

I detect a bit of flashlight snobbery

Of course I am joking, though I found it interesting that they did not overrate the cells too tremendously like is often the case.

IF the cells were safe and even 2,400 and the flashlights turned on and off, it would be a decent deal. I know, I know, BIG if.

People actually liked some SWE lights a ways back, no? So figure 9bux for a pair of zoomies (meh) might be worth it to someone.

Not me, but someone

Note the seller. The ‘Light Elves’ came up with a deal that dwarfs all others… it’s wizard’s work! They look precious, by Gollum. I’d buy them, but buying too many cheap lights just feeds a bad hobbit.

Don’t worry. If you scroll towards the bottom of the page, you will see there is also a bundle that includes one flashlight with six of those overrated cells.

whoa…It’s tactical. Must be good. And it’s got that great “Hi/Low/Strobe” UI that everyone raves about.

People say I’m a flashaholic like it’s a bad thing…

Even a “budget” light forum has an upper class.
