The OTHER BLF Deal Alert Thread [DISCUSSIONS ARE WELCOME HERE!]

Since the original deal alert thread doesn’t permit discussions, I thought that maybe it would be useful to have another, where discussions are welcome?

The thing about discussions is that they are often meaningless, get off topic and go on for some time, making finding the deals much more difficult.

Subscribed. Hope this thread makes it because the lack of feedback on that "other" thread drives me nuts! Deals sometimes last for nanoseconds, other times they come/go/come again. I much prefer the Amazon thread because of all the info that follows.

Here’s SB’s thread designated for discussion of items that have already been posted under Deals — No Discussion

Quote:
Here’s the general thread for discussing deals mentioned here:

http://budgetlightforum.com/node/61564

I’ll try to remember to put a note here if I put a deal in the main thread.

I found cheap sets of triple glow gaskets from Niwalker for Carclo optics on Aliexpress. Link: Niwalker triple glow gaskets

Lumintop, Jaxman and others sell the GITD gaskets for the FW3A and other flashlights using the triple Carclo optics for around 10$. The Niwalker gaskets are 19$ for a set of 9 different colored gaskets or 12$ for 3 of the same color.

Of course I can’t tell you if the more expensive gaskets glow brighter.

There is a big difference for example in the glow gaskets sold on Neals site for “turbo glow” vs regular gaskets that lumintop sells. The one that comes with the Lumintop EDC18 for example is soft and bendable like silicon, while the one from Neal’s Gadget is pretty stiff material and glows brighter for a much longer period. That could account for the price of various glow gaskets.

I'm not too keen on High-Low-Strobe, but for the money it looks like an excellent deal!

Hope you don’t mind it is a bluetooth speaker instead of a flashlight:

The code 618ANK15UD gives you 15USD off for the Anker Soundcore Pro + 25W. LINK

You can also use shop coupons, select coupons, 2% coins discount and the 2% off 2 items promotion.

Also, the Amutorch flashlight store offers 8% off for two flashlights.

Nitecore Tip2 is available for $30.77 shipped to my place:
https://www.gearbest.com/mini-straight-flashlights/pp_009560963942.html

This is not one of the best deals ever but it’s a OK price.

EDIT:
I forgot that to get standard shipping warranty GB charges extra. To be comparable with other sources I added that and the light ended costing $32.74. About average. Tired

4 Sony Murata VTC6 18650 Rechargeable High Drain Batteries 3000mAh w/ FREE CASE $22.95 plus $1.65 tax plus free shipping = $6.14 per cell to my door from a U.S. EBAY seller.

I waited to post until I received the first batch to examine them, charge/ discharge, etc. They are legit.

Yep, that’s the one. Thanks a lot for your help. It’s a shame how long it took me to make a post with a broken link in it. Kinda new around here. What with everything going on this year I seem to have renewed my interest in the hobby. So much out there, choices, possibilities!

OK, there is a flash sale at Olight with bundle deals. For slightly over 219 dollars I got all the following

1 Seeker2 pro with battery, holster and hanging charger…mint green color

1 M2R pro warrior kit with battery, charger, and holster…patriotic edition

2 I5T pocket lights, one for each of the 2 bundled kits

1 i1R 2 Eos Kit that was only purchased to get the order over 219 dollars…barely.

1 S2R Batton II that is free with orders over 219 dollars, and comes with battery and charger and a pouch

1 Keychain multitool that is free for sharing on facebook

Not a bad deal for all that. Total bill was 219.43 US. Three premium lights in the Seeker 2 pro kit, M2R pro kit, and S2R Batton II kit. All 3 included batteries and chargers, and 2 of them included holsters. The ilR2 is a tiny keychain light with internal battery and mini usb charging…5 and 150 lumens. The I5T is a 1 x AA battery pocket light maximum 300 lumens.
