Saving of $20 on TN11. http://www.adventurestars.co.uk/Shop/Torches/Thrunite/1671-Thrunite-TN11...

Err, the TN11 is GBP84.95 from this UK seller – HKEquipment has it for $85.95. Rather cheaper.

Very rare to find any light cheaper in UK than virtually anywhere else in the world. I just received a Klarus MiX6 AU from DD for £24 – it’s £55 from UK dealers.

Not quite one dollar more – £85 is about $130 – so rather more than a dollar. Thing is when doing web searches you should try to take the currency into account, rather than assume everything is priced in dollars.

As woody says a pound is about .67 USD, which is good for us in the UK a $25 light worked out £16.41 ish. £85 is pretty dear compared to $85

Good idea. I hate spending all day looking for the best deal. Next time I am looking for a light I will give you the assignment. this thread should fill up with good links.

How much is taken off of the price don’t mean didly to me. It’s how much the total price is that counts. I know a guy here in the states that will sell SR90’s with an extra battery pack probably cheaper than most are selling a SR90 with just 1 battery pack. Ask rikr how much he paid for his with 2 battery packs that he bought from Shane?

Never a truer word spoken (or written). I always find the advertisements showing “70% off” – in fact these days even more ambiguous “up to …70% off” to be really amusing. Not interested in the discount, just interested in whether the price is a good one. To me, that’s what budget lights (or anything else) is all about – value for money, not any “huge” discount against an arbitrary, and often fictitious, manufacturer’s price.

What kind of price can you find on a B-holefire AH-55?

What kind of deal can you find on a flashlight that I think I remember having when I was a kid? I am pretty sure it was orange or yellow.

@Speedsix - What is wrong with you?

@Everyone - I'll start listing prices now rather than discounts.

@Chicago X

Those appear to be out of stock from every seller I can find.

@Boro

One of the finds in $10 cheaper but backordered. Should I toss that one?
