SOLD: Xeno E03 XML NW + pocket clip -- Daily price drop! :)

i need to save up funds for the new Xeno S3A XML U2 flashlight so i am herewith trying to sell my least loved 1xAA/14500 torch, the otherwise popular Xeno E03:

 

+ 1x xeno e03 xml t5 NW, RED (anodization@head is slightly scratched by pocket clip)

+ 1x fenix ld20 pocket clip (like NEW)

+ 1x xeno e03 white diffuser wand (UNUSED)

+ 10x gitd o-rings (UNUSED)

comes with original docs (for the 2 xeno products), packaging, accessories (2x o-rings, 1x spare clicky, wrist strap). estimated retail value of the above is 45$ new shipped. i will also add:

+ 1x a fitting FREE Ultrafire camouflage holster

+ 1x FREE Best tweezers

+ 1x a fitting FREE fenix diffuser lens

+ 1x 25mmØ FREE heat shrink tubing

( click to enlarge! )

my Money Mouth starting offer was Thu: 42$ shipped worldwide with unregistered mail (+1$ for registered mail)

new suggested price, Fri: 41$

new suggested price, Sat: 40$

new suggested price, Sun: 39$

new suggested price, Mon: 38$

new suggested price, Tue: 37$

new suggested price, Wed: 36$ (SOLD to blinded, congrats!!)

important note: price will continue to drop by -1$ per day until price meets accordance. due to the nature of this "dutch auction" the actual final sales price will be between 35$ and the stated 36$ is 36$. for non-German customers only.

feel free to post a reserve note, e.g. "hey kreisl dude, the current price makes your package offering uninteresting. honestly dude. but when price has reached the 24$ mark and the offer is still available, i'd take it then" -- good luck!!

*FMI* i got 4 i/o sh

Maybe the thing to do is just have it be an auction. That worked well the last time it was tried here.

Hey, to be fair, the $24 was your own suggestion kresiler Silly I was just trying to follow instructions. It is kind of ebay like, with bid increments in days ($2). I'll go up to 28.

hey kreisl dude, the current price makes your package offering uninteresting. honestly dude. but when price has reached the 28$ mark and the offer is still available, i'd take it then

Why'd you take out the part where i quoted you? now I look like I'm mean and ungrateful or something. And now the increments are $1. Ok, I guess I'll stick to the 28 offer still. Good luck with the sale.

Edit: scaru already beat me with 30.

Yeah, some pictures of the scratch on the head would definitely help.

Thanks Kreisler. I'll go the full 30 then if scaru is down to 29. Those pictures sound good too.

the rest of the anodization and finish is fully intact, the torch never got in touch with keys or similar, was never dropped etc. The scratches are very light, superficial on the finish, dont have any depth and are impossible to feel/touch with your fingers. You know how easy it is to compromise the finish by sliding carefully a pocket clip - you've experienced it before! (e.g. iTP A3, or Titanium alloy polished torches Preon 1, Preon 2).

it's a purely cosmetical blemish, and not "physical". i cant even call it "a damage". In any case please dont forget that the blemish is balanced by the very inclusion of the Fenix LD20 pocket clip and the other helpful extras.

@NightCrawl

Considering how much German flashaholics are willing to pay for used Xeno E03's and how way too much German retailers charge, the final price in this thread (to be expected somewhere between 30-40$) would be too low for German shoppers and i would ridicule myself by asking typical German EUR-prices for used Xeno E03's (~30EUR, +shipping!!, see TLF in their hidden Buy&Sell forum section). therefore i either sell it on the German forum and earn quite a bit (which would be good for me; i profit) or i sell it on BFL to non-German buyers and lose some money (which would be good for the international bidder who welcomes my competitive US$-pricing; compare with HKE, EDC+, IlluminationGear, ebay). to prevent (re-)sales of my offered package on German forums by TLF users, i've put them on the exclusion list hehe.

I'll offer $34 since I was going to get the light anyway but might not get any accessories though I'm curious how well the diffuser lens works.

Tschuss!

Blinded? BUY the light!

Up for the sale, for a fantastic budget flashlight

asot, thanks for your comment on the diffuser. I'm curious to try this style out.

Servus kreisler,

How about I make your day and end the auction early :)? I've been interested in getting a Xeno, so you might as well get the $37 instead of hkequipment.

Please bear with me since I'm a newbie here and will have to figure out the protocol for paying you, etc. Would a paypal bank transfer be best for you or is something else better?

Best Wishes,

Daniel

Blinded? BUY the light!

Daniel, thx for the added money for the registered shipping. Package is posted already, see your paypal email with attached photo of the package with working tracking number.

Once you receive it (i assume within 15 days) please let us know if you feel that it was a good deal, a good value acquisition.

Then i will feel happy too, thx! :bigsmile:

Hi kreisler,

I just logged on and posted here before checking my email. Then I did check my email and had just answered you when I noticed your new post here. Sorry I wasn't faster responding: I've been out geocaching today. I've been doing some caches by pafarmboy. His best are probably my favorite caches so far. To give you a taste, he has released some James Bond caches where you have to use Q gadgets (often involving PVC pipes) at different stages to get the coordinates for the next stage. Really nice. Thanks for all your trouble. I'll email you as soon as your package arrives (unless I'm not home from caching :)).

Daniel

Just wanted to thank kreisler for doing such a perfect job. You really went to a lot of extra trouble with this package. Everything was beautifully packed, you even cleaned up the flashlight! The E03 is a great little flashlight. You must have some really nice AA lights if this was your least favorite. I really like the light, but I’m using it with a 14500. It does have one weird property: when I turn on the light, it seems to advance to the next mode (something else may be going on. I’ll experiment more later). Still, with only 3 modes, it’s no big deal.
Sorry I was out-of-town when the light arrived or I would have sent you an email several days earlier.
Is there some other place I should leave feedback here at BLF?
Hope we cross paths again,
blinded

Thanks for your warm words and helpful feedback. Got your e-mails and PM's. Everything fine from my part!

Since the E03 has no mode memory, it will always come on in Med-mode if you left the light off for a couple of seconds. It will only advance to the next mode if you dont wait long enough after switching the light off. Very simple user interface. Also note that with 14500's the Med-mode looks pretty much as bright as the Hi-mode. The mode sequence is Med-Lo-Hi.

Hmm.. i do like and appreciate the E03. The market appearance of the new yummy Eagletac releases (Clicky D series) made me reassess my current collection of 11 flashlights and pick a light which would return some money. Thanks again for the generous bid!!

Yes, hopefully we cross paths again Smile

AND THANKS FOR YOUR TRUST.
