[WINNER ANNOUNCED] Henk4U2 2020-09 batteries GAW.

Last December I said that for every GAW I win on BLF, I do a GAW of my own. Based upon experience I have added a condition to that promise. Like eating is proof of the pudding, receiving is proof of the GAW. Because some “donors” are having a hard time parting from their gifts. But after receiving a pair of 18650’s from the GAW by vapcell Dennis, it’s time to start mine.

What I’m offering is a pair of 26350 batteries like THESE (picture “borrowed” from BG)
Not because I am aiming for a “mirror” deal (batteries <=> batteries) but because I cancelled an unfulfilled build. And I have no light to put them into. Bought them a few years ago. They only come out of the box for their yearly checkup and than go back in. Last week I checked and they are still doing 2,100 mAh on my analyzing charger.

Wanna join, just post “I’m in” and you are in. There are only 2 rules.
1/ You must be a BLF member before September 1st 2020.
2/ Due to shipping constraints, I’ll only send these batteries to a valid address in the European Union (FYI, that is not the same as Europe).

Entries for the GAW end on Wednesday September 30th 2020, at 12:00AM (End Of Day AKA midnight). I’ll give a 24 hours notice before that moment is reached. And if necessary, I bump up the thread one or more times. Within 24 hours I’ll publish a list of valid entries. Upon which you have 72 hours to contact me about errors etc. in the list.

If things go as planned I’ll ask Mr. Random.Org to select a winner on 12:00AM Sunday October 4th 2020 (World Animal Day). I’ll PM the winner a.s.a.p. to provide me with the necessary shipping info. If he/she fails to do so before Friday October 9th, at 12:00AM, I’ll ask Mr. Random.Org to do his thing one more time. This will go on until a winner has emerged with a valid address in the European Union.

Since this is my GAW, I’m allowed to alter, or make new, rules if the old ones lead to unclear or unwanted situations. As always I put in a packet of Fisherman’s Friend, so you can blame it on that.

Good Luck!!

========================

And the winner is serial number 14 on the list in post #14, Skylight.

Please PM your address to me before 12:00AM Friday October 9th and I will send you a pair of 26350 batteries. And a packet of Fishermans Friend Wink

I do not have flashlights of that type, so I’m not interested, hopefully someone who needs them.
I just wanted to thank HenK4U2 for your generosity.
Greetings.

Bumping up the post a bit.

I thought more people in the EU would like to win a pair of 26350 batteries.
Nevertheless: one person is the minimum, and that goal is already reached Wink

Darn I could have used those “stubby chubby” cells in my SC26.

Nice of you to provide a GAW!

Not in (not in the EU and nothing that takes ‘em) but I’m always in support of a giveaway. Thanks for doing this Henk4U2

Also I think the giveaway pledge is a good idea – I recently said something similar as a one-off, but would probably do it for all future GAWs I win.

Glad you got them. Hope you have good use for them.
With me they were just looking at each other. In a drawer.
