CONGRATS CD520

 see post 9 for international rules!!!

well all these give aways of batteries and cases and all put me in the mood i guess... or just dont want to throw it out

 

info on the light

  • it does not work reliably
  • it will need a new switch
  • the led is not a q5 now, i believe a q3
  • it is a bootleg
  • here is a tear down pic
  • its 1 aa/14500

 

raffle will end at midnight tomorrow, roughly 23 hours and 10 mins from now (eastern time)

must be us member, or willing to pay for shipping costs. can buy a new one for 10usd, so may not be worth it

 

just post to enter, only one post please. will pick winner by random number generator. the light will need work done to function right, so id suggest someone with a few extra switches and can mod one to work

ps... it has a hollow pill, so maybe pot it with some thermal epoxy?

pps.. if and when modded, let me know what ya did and how it worked, i have a 2nd one i want to mod, even though some educated people suggested not to bother

 

 

the list

  1. flashlight foy
  2. how2
  3. cd520
  4. pounder
  5. fishmaniac
  6. jamesearljonesisacab
  7. monanoke
  8. johnnymac
  9. wastednihilist
  10. cheapthrills

it may not be worth the shipping, you can get a new one for 10usd from ebay, with free shipping, even cheaper if you complain about it being counterfiet after you get it Wink

but if you want in, shipping is free for conus, but non us all i ask is exactly what it will cost in shipping

 

 

i started an ordered list, so i can answer Qs

yeah, sorry, shipping to canada would be 20 sum dollars

thats where i bought them... just in case any non us members want it

they do handle 3.7v, and are fairly bright id say somewhere in the 160l range. i let my girls son go at it with a 10440 in it, ran full batteies dead many times with no issues... that was on my still functional second one

 

yeah, i turned my girls 3yo son into a flash a holic... given a choice between a flashlight and about anything else, 9 times out of 10 he picks the torch Laughing

but his addiction is WAY cheaper than mine

Actually, w/o insurance or tracking, First Class to canada should be about $3.50 for an 8oz package.

Cool of you to do this. It's nice to see people doing nice things on our nice board. Smile

its sitting on my shelf collecting dust. i have no spare switches, and dont have money to spend trying different ones. i threw out a 2 cell nimh charger the other day, should have included that and 2 cells with it, but hind sight

 

but on that note, if its only $3.50, canada is included. i have no experience shipping international, but IF shipping is under $5 usd, ill ship it to your country... hate to not include our great international members

 

if you are international, and its more than $5, ill pm you, you can pay the differance. if you dont want to, ill generate another winner, and so on

 

so international is in, on those terms

I really don't know how much is shipping to italy but i think it's not cheap... Maybe over $20. So, i really appreciate your raffle and i would thank you because are thing like this that make BLF a great place, but don't count me in.
