Henk4U2's second tit-for-tat Giveaway.

December 2019 I promised myself that for every GAW I win, I’ll do a GAW of my own. Because of COVID things were very slow, but lately more and more members, manufacturers and sellers are doing a GAW. Last August I won 2 of them, so that makes 2 GAW’s. Since shipping costs are up, and my pockets are not endless deep, I’ll be giving away two lights in one GAW. One 18650 light and one AAA light, batteries not included. These lights are in near perfect condition, unless stated otherwise.

=== 18650 lights to choose from ====

1/ Amutorch Yootoo SD2, a NIB 21700 light with an SST-20 (5000k) emitter. I bought two of them. and have modded one. Since the mod went well without me destroying some critical parts (for a change) I did not have to use the other light for spare parts.

2/ Thorfire C8+, an 18650 light with the original XM-L2 emitter, O-rings, lanyard and manual in the original cardboard box. This light is minimally used, but never made it to the EDC rotation. Because the anodisation is very matte black, like a chalk board, it is also rather fragile. That means a mechanical lock-out is quite difficult to realise. And because I like lighted tailcaps, I need a light with a reliable lock-out. That’s why this light went back into its box after very little use.

=== AAA lights to choose from =====

1/ Sofirn C01R with a 660nm red emitter and a red body. This light was a bit of a hype (IMHO) for a short while, but I had no practical use for it. At the moment I use a Sofirn C01 with a 5mm red emitter as my in the middle of the night light. The C01R is in perfect condition and comes with O-rings and manual in the original small generic cardboard box.

2/ Sofirn C01S with a 445nm blue SST-20 B emitter and a blue body. It gives quite a punch, but I use a similar 18650 light when I’m in the garden looking for the toys of my dog. This one is also in perfect condition and comes with O-rings and manual in the original small generic cardboard box.

All you have to do for a chance to win the lights of this tit-for-tat GAW is to be a BLF member before October 1 st 2021 and use the magic words “I’m in”.

Entry is open open until October 31st 22:00h GMT (that is midnight local time for me). The following days I will compile a list of valid entries. If I get no comments on that list I’ll ask mr. Random to do his trick. After that, the lucky winner gets a full week to claim the prize, make a choice what lights he/she would like to receive, and on what address.

Since this is my GAW, I’m allowed to alter, or make new, rules if the old ones lead to unclear situations.

Good Luck!!

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

I would just like to thank you for the GAW. But I am not using the “magic words”, so this is only a Thank You, not a request to be entered.

I’ve been avoiding giveaways, just due to time and allowing others a better chance, but that C01R isn’t hype for me, wonderful light to wear on a cap while camping!

Smile! It makes others wonder what you've been up to.

You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.
