Any chance GB can ship units in Gray?

The supplier just informed us that they can supply the Gray finish too. The SKU of this version will be uploaded later in Gearbest’s website when pics are already available.

So gray-finish enthusiasts like me, hold on to your Paypal fingers.

With gray option, I have no excuse anymore not to buy. Keep us updated when it’s out.

Thanks tatasal, for making me have less money. Smile

Might not have complete set of (PayPal) fingers after this deal bro. As discussed earlier, will get one Gray unit. Thanks Tatasal.

This news just in: Perhaps up to 10 days for the Gray version to be available. I will update when that time comes.

I think a gray light would be very nice.
Will wait for more information.

I wait for the gray.

Hmmmm…29 units sold so far already, modders really know how to spot a good candidate for a long-throw project in this Courui.

About time for me perhaps to explore what fun I have been missing all these time?

I have an old Sipik with a busted led after I dedomed it with my fingernail, maybe time to start it from there.

My grey one that I purchased from KD when they first hit the market is 24mm.

Others reported smaller MCPCB’s.

Trick seems to be to flip the shelf over, & use a 26mm, which takes up the slop & helps wires clear the reflector underside.

Thanks for posting this tatasal!

Having just completed the mod project on ledoman’s X6 bike light, I’m setting my sights on this. I think I’ll wait for the gray version.

I ordered a black at 32.07 before this post, but will buy a Grey if we can still get this discount.

Oh nooooo…

My little cuckoo just told me that there will be further delays as it will be China’s National Holiday on Oct. 1 to 7..and historically you know how much the Chinese vendors and employees take their holidays seriously.

It’s crazy, isn’t it? Aside from multiple flashlights, I have multiple chargers and batteries than I can ever use, but…there is no reason except at least, for me, the pleasure of owning them, just like any other hobby. I even collect plastic containers with no apparent use for them..haha, sounds familiar, huh?

I’m right there with you, man. The only reason I’m not caving is because of lower funds than usual this month.

How many major holidays do these guys have?
And they say Europeans get all the vacation time.

Being slightly old and with a horrible memory, I looked up the meaning of YOLO on the Urban Dictionary to be sure I was understanding the meaning correctly.

Yolo
Abbreviation for: you only live once
The dumbass’s excuse for something stupid that they did
Also one of the most annoying abbreviations ever….

Guy 1: “Hey i heard u got that girl pregnant”

Dumbass 1: “ Ya man but hey YOLO

Guy 1: “Hey i heard that you broke ur leg falling off the balcony at that party”
Dumbass 1: “Ya but hey YOLO

And so now I know the mentality of an era that is losing young people at an alarming rate.

We will abbreviate ourselves into extinction.
