Pretty incredible deal on the Ultrafire UF-H2 (similar to Zebra H501), Only $16

In case not everyone has it (the thread's been at the top of the forum for days), Semur posted instructions here: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/3278?page=3#comment-54563


Dinodirect PMed me to ask what kind of flashlight members here might be interested in for a discount. Most people probably already have a bunch of similar generic straightforward reflector lights, so I thought maybe something unique and higher quality flood/headlamp like the Ultrafire UF series, which is their usually somewhat expensive approximation of the Zebralight. Of those, IMO the UF-H2 is the best model since it can use both cheap AA's or a 14500 for some extra kick.

http://www.dinodirect.com/UltraFire-UF-H2-CREE-Q5-150-Lumens-Headlight-T...

http://www.zebralight.com/H501-Headlamp-AA-Flood-w-new-UI_p_11.html

http://www.manafont.com/product_info.php/ultrafire-ufh2-q5-modes-cree-le...

http://kaidomain.com/ProductDetails.aspx?ProductId=10241

The light is well reviewed and seems worth the original price, or so says our own site admin @ $32-33 from MF:

http://budgetlightforum.com/node/1041, <-- 5 stars

http://budgetlightforum.com/node/423

The feature summary of this for the lazy is that it's programmable, tailstands on any metal surface (magnet in tail, lol), and comes with a clip and headband.

So Semur from DD decided to generously offer the UF-H2 for 40% off their already somewhat low price FOR MEMBERS WHO HAVEN'T ALREADY TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF PRIOR DD OFFERS LIKE THE FREE FLASHLIGHT, which results in a final sum of <$17. The only OTHER catch, if you want to call it that, is we have to get together a group buy from 20 members in the next week. I think that's entire feasible for a great light at great price.

Just to be clear, I'm not receiving anything for this, though I hope we can get enough folks interested because $16.88 is around half the very fair MF price and the kind of deal I also want to get in on. My take on it is that you should get one if you don't already own it at that discount, and if it's as good as the reviews suggest, existing owners will probably get another :D.

So, if you want a well built Zebra copy that runs on AA's for $16.88, reply in the thread or PM me if too shy. It's also worth noting if you're sitting on the fence for this light is that they might offer similar deals for us in the future if this group buy works out, so do it for the forum. Smile

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

This is a list of members who replied w/ interest in this deal.  It's not too great of an interest to me personally if you choose to participate or not (:p), but DinoDirect may be using it to verify eligible members. If you're not on the list, don't panic, just reply and ask to be added. 

Other things to be aware of: DinoDirect was fairly generous on this offer and only asked that you post a review of this light, so just remember to do so when you get it and perhaps the forum will get more group buys in the future.

Sorry for adding restrictions after the fact but semur just PMed me that this is open only to folks who didn't already participate in the $8 free flashlight/coupon promo as I guess a sort of offer for lower post members. I'm not sure if it's limit 1 per buyer or not since this is kind of special discount but I'll find out.

The cutoff for deciding is July 20th noon or so, when he'll make a special page for us to buy from then.

Damn. Already got the freebie. Does this use 14500 as well as mine does and I think there may be two versions.

TJI, since I want to be extra open about anything relating to this, they also offered me the discount for trying to organizing the group buy for the forum. I'm a bit conflicted in this because I don't want to be special but OTOH I don't think others will want to help organize buys for the forum if they can't even get the group rate, so if anyone objects to it as a sort of morale hazard, please let me know and I'll pull out.

I agree,  as long as the person organising is open about any gain they are getting from organising stuff like this then fair dues as they/you are the one doing the work.

If people were hiding anything about any personal gain, and they things were found out, that is when people get the bad taste in their mouths.

Be open and honest and let some of us newbies get the benefits that we would not normally be able to get.

That is my two pennies anyway.

Hi guys,

This is my first post. I have been following the forum for a long time, and I am a moderate flashaholic. Finally this offer made me register, so if I am eligible to this offer I will take one, but I can totally understand if it is only for existing members.

Sorry we can't join in on this deal. This is a much better deal than the one for those with over 100 posts. 

I just hope in the future a deal is a deal and open to all members. Smile Perhaps a monthly deal.
