Wuben T2 . Seems like a nice 2 AA gift light for less than $15. Purchased several for holiday gifts.

I received this knife yesterday and for $11 it is a pretty decent knife.

For some reason Amazon is experiencing heavy traffic on their site. Perhaps that may have something to do with it.

Amazon — Don’t get me started —— We ordered a 80” × 40” × 20” deep cabinet two times already — First one lost after the storm (acceptable) Second one delivered to the wrong address (Ridiculous ) maybe Third time will be a charm —- The first one they gave me a $50 credit for my trouble

I live in NJ and anything I order from the Amazon warehouse seems to be delivered by the USPS .

It all ends up in a distribution center 12 miles away , and the next day it is shipped to another center 64 miles away.

A couple of days later it shows up in my local post office and then gets delivered .

USPS – When I mail my mom (who lives in the same CITY), it goes to a different STATE and comes back. I dunno…

Just stuck “coleman” in my browser, and that popped up. Switch looks the same.

Doesn’t show up for me. Maybe they turned it off. I’ve seen coupons like this come/go on Amazon.

Pretty nice looking lamp, but there’s no indication of wattage. Oddly, there’s a comparison chart at the lower end of the images that shows wattage, but they don’t even include the Moko light being offered! It’s surprising what a difference 6w to 12w makes. We also don’t get a lumens output figure.

Comparison chart with other lamps shows this one is 10 Watts. Someone asked in the questions and the seller also specified 10 Watts.

I ordered one to try. $3 coupon worked for me shortly after will34 posted it.

Just got my 2 sets of LOFTER motion sensor magnetic light from the deal I posted a couple pages back. Ended up paying $29.99 for all 4 lights and I’m happy with what I got:

The good:
-3 tint to choose from, no green in WW and no blue in CW, variable ramping brightness. Excellent beam and output. No PWM in any level.
-Accurate motion sensor with option to have it turn on only when dark
-As expected it uses a 18650 inside instead of a pouch cell. There is room for another 18650 to be installed.
-Build quality is pretty good and the diffuser is not overly thick.

The bad:
-20s auto off is a bit short, I wish there was an option for 60s
-Long hold to manually turn on/off makes it impractical to use without the motion sensor.
-Micro USB charging

Despite the negatives these are the nicest motion sensing lamps I have bought, and I have tried quite a few.

Excuse the messy workspace, but sometimes I feel I get more done this way, a la AvE Big Smile

They certainly are the best motion sensor night lights I’ve ever purchased, and amazing bright. The wife totally loves them!

Enough room in the LOFER light for a 21700 you think?
I converted one of the thin ones to a 1S4P 18650 external pack for a basement light. It’s a kludge, but works fine for what it is. The “large gum-stick” battery they come with is simply not up to the job. Other than that I like it.
