I’m thinking of the Wurkkos FC11, and maybe a Convoy M21B

There’s 2 flashlights I want at this moment, 1 isn’t on sale it seems and the other 1 isn’t made yet so it seems I won’t get any this year. From what I’ve seen so far the offers ain’t that spectacular anyway so I’ve got all the time in the world.

I can’t disagree, though how much lower can you get on cheap lights, its like we can realistically expect every light to be sold well below cost.

I keep almost hitting pay on the FC11 but something inside is stopping me.

I don't plan to buy any, but if the RovyVon A3 goes on a good sale on Amazon, I'll probably buy two of those.

None this year. I finally ordered a EC03 2 weeks ago after admiring the beamshots for a while. I’m done for the year, but am thinking about which Emisar/Noctigon I’ll order in 2022. Hard decision, but fun to think about.

I feel sorry for people who don't have a hobby or interest to escape to.

I have put in my shopping cart at Lazada Singapore three small Sofirn flashlights: 1 C01S (Blue), 1 C01S (Tan), each costing about US$8.15, and 1 SC31 Pro (Green), US$21.50. No tax and shipping from China to Singapore is free of charge.

The Black Friday Great Sale starts after midnight here. There will be an additional discount during the first two hours of the BFGS! Thumbs Up

The Olight Black Friday is on, but I cannot afford any Olight flashlights. Ended up buying merely a set of Obulb MC, which comes with OBuddy, hook, and silicone Osling bag for US$45.

4 lights from Wurkkos and a Manker ML03. So far….

Edit- Just found 5 more lights I wanted, on sale at Neals Gadgets for 30% off. So 10 lights total for Turkey Day 2021. So far….

You will need to change your vote Smile

I was considering 2 Convoys from Fasttech but ended up buying a Wurkkos FC11 as a beater light so my grand total is expected to be 3 lights.

One more and i can be like Captain Picard
“There are 4 lights!”

At first I thought “BF” was a typo for “BLF”. I have lots of BLF lights.

Then I thought maybe it meant “boyfriend”. But that didn’t make sense here.

The third thing which came to mind was Black Friday.

I ordered EC06, because I like the amount of brief burst capability per size per dollar, and the high quality.

Ordered the new 95 CRI version of the x50, plus a Q8 Pro. Similar size, otherwise quite different!

Saturday evening I ordered, and Monday afternoon took delivery of, a Nitecore EC11 and Fenix ARB-L16-700UP. My new EDC light, I’m extremely pleased with them, and my Fenix E12 v2.0 will now go into my backpacking/camping handbag along with my Fenix HM23 headlamp.

It happens.
I ordered one more than expected, the FC11 is to be the beater EDC light as right now my EDC is a keychain light.

I ordered an FC11 as a gift for someone as a “real” flashlight after seeing what they’ve been using.

But only after the sale was extended a day, having missed the undeclared deadline over the weekend. Wurkkos needs to be more explicit about which time zone they’re enforcing, because the Monday sale ended before the calendar day was up as well, at least for North America.

Funny you should say this, i was visiting someone in a nursing home and the meter station on wheels (O2 saturation, blood pressure, pulse, temperature etc) had a flashlight in its tray. A 2D cell incandescent which put out maybe 2 lumens from its expired in 2015 batteries. Then a replacement was brought in when the stations batteries died, it had two flashlights, one of the same 2D but with dead cells (0 lumens) and one with 1D cell and a no name LED with extremely poor CRI and maybe 10 lumens.
