I ordered one and my wife ordered one for her purse is that a double up? I hope not, sorry if it is she has been wanting something small for her purse.

Glad I haven't made it. David is right. He tried to introduce his web, and "we" tried to cheat and buy as many units as we can.

4059 Units in Stock, ATM.

UPDATE: for those BLFers who couldn't buy one, sure we can arrange it if we speak with David directly.

This post/thread "may" contain referrals, a little contribution I "earn" in form of points ONLY if you buy the item. The purpose is to redeem items using the points and then making reviews of them in the forums to shar

I don't understand trying to cheat a good deal. Even regular price isn't bad for this light. I bought two - one at $5 and the other at full price. With free shipping, it's still a deal at $10.50 apiece and Thrunite-Sales doesn't get shafted in the process.

About 3 years ago I had a lady from Chicago tell me that it was natural for people to take when it was their turn at power.  She was right about herself and her friends so apparently there is a whole other culture I never knew before.

My ex-wife used to work at REI headquarters. They had a table filled with items they couldn't sell any longer but they were new. Employees could take something if they could use it.

Most people took one or two (or no) items but there was one lady who always took way more than her "share" and mentioned to others that she didn't have a need for any of that stuff but since it was free she couldn't pass it by.

Some people who could have used some items didn't get the chance because the table was always empty after she got through.

If the Thrunite rules were one per customer but if the software still allowed you to buy more anyway there would be some who would order $1,000 worth and then set-up shop on ebay with the excuse that if Thrunite is stupid enough to allow it they would do it.

It's greed pure and simple.  There are a lot greedy people in the world.

Yup, 100% true.  It's sad, but Thrunite should have prevented it at their end and allowed only one order per shipping address.  You give greedy folks a loop hole and they WILL exploit it.

couldn't agree more and I mailed this to them. They have to have control from their end. Many companies offer these incredible deals and have NO IDEA what kind of response it will bring. We know!  A .99 cent store opening offering a free t.v. will have a line around the block on opening day. Whatever.

If I didn't get in on the first deal, I'd still get it for 10.99.  Don't miss out on a good deal just because you missed a better one or you'll regret it.

is there any way to specify the type? 0,04 or 3 lumen? I can't seem to specify this when trying to order.

I thought the light was 0,04-60 but it is 0,04 and 60. So the 0,04 version would be cool as gimmick but not really useful.

I wrote in the comment field (during the order process), that blue is my favorite color and the 3/60 lumen would be great. Maybe they send me this flashlight.

Maybe everyone get a black one, which is also great for the price.

Light up the darkness.

I paid nearly 20 bucks for this light 3 months ago!

Unfortunately THEY CHANGED THE DEAL PRICE TO 11 BUCKS NOW INSTEAD OF THE 5 SHIPPED.

Not worth for me anymore… otherwise I’d have ordered one!

I LOVE the light, it’s solid, durable, reliable and runtime efficient!

I tried, the code just gives $5 off now.

I don’t need one anyway but for $5 I would have bought one, not for $10.99 I wont though.

I’m waiting. I like to try the firefly mode and see if I find it useful.

Wow, for 5$ Id jump on it, I dont need another light, but this one for 5$ is too sweet to pass up.
Unfortunately the deals gone because of bunch of cheap ass scammers.
