Not sure I care which low version . . though maybe I prefer firefly because I'd probably use fauxton instead for 3 lumen needs.

I already have the 2 lumen version (in blue) so getting the firefly mode in my second one is OK. I think they are all going to be black but I'm not sure. If I get pink then the $5 price will seem about right Smile

I think it is legit because the PayPal email address was sales@thrunite.com

How do you get the T-30 for $35?

I am already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth.

I agree, although the recipient was someone else. My paypal confirmation shows:

You sent a payment of $5.00 USD to XIAOBO CHEN

Mine said   XIAOBO CHEN which makes perfect sense since this is the name a flashlight guy would have in china ....   

 If the woman in charge of shipping is called Mai  Ling ...you might be in trouble

I told myself I would not buy anything flashlight  or EDC related this month...

That lasted all of 20 hours. 

Good deal tho, thx for the heads up.

deal went dodo as soon as other deal forums got wind of this.  but maybe you guys with cpf accounts can talk the dealer to offer us BLFers a pair each at this price?  here's his link: http://www.cpfmarketplace.com/mp/showthread.php?272683-ThruNite-retail-w...

i ordered one, but it has been "processing" for half a day now, anyone see any other status yet?  side question for those already using this: could it possibly take Energizer lithium primaries?  I just got a pack of the lithiums and they're 1.84v each Shocked

Considering that some people have been running them on 4.2V 10440's and their lights didn't die.. you aren't risking much Silly

I honestly got butterflies keying in my order, hoping to get one before it was over! Cheap Thrill.

Overclocker nothing but good wishes your way for the alert!

...

I think that would be a tough sell considering that there is no logic to a "pair" and the deal has now gotten more expensive due to people trying to break the rules by ordering more than one.

Too good a deal to last. It was on slickdeals and I'm sure other deal alert forums, so it was going to be a big seller even without cheaters. I think the idea was to introduce their website and Facebook page, so they certainly accomplished that.
