Wallbuys 50% off for one hour?

Looks like Wallbuys will have a one hour sale with quite a few items at 50% off. I tried to convert time of sale in China, Dec. 25th 12:00 -13:00 military time to U.S. time…and I think it is between 10:00 pm -11:00 pm Dec. 24th Central Standard Time (Edit: Date corrected)…right when you should be building your kids bicycle :santa: . Please correct me if I am wrong.

Here is the main sale link…somewhat laborious to go thru each page. Perhaps there is a way to sort the results, but I haven’t found any. My version of explorer is quite old though…so I might not be seeing it:

http://wallbuys.com/crazypromotions

An example is an UltraFire C8 for $5.14 (Current/regular Wallbuys price $10.28). Price will be reduced at time of sale:

http://wallbuys.com/Product/UltraFire-C8-LED-18650-Battery-5-Controls-Waterproof-Glare-FlashlightBlack-6018

Not too much experience with Wallbuys myself. I have an order waiting to be shipped, so I can’t yet speak to their reliability or quality.

Cheers!

Here I see on page 10 the Nitecore i4 charger for $12.xx (is it v.2 though?), & Jetbeam lights. 

Hmmm . . .

Love the pics, Kreisler!

We’ll find out if I identify with the ‘expectation’ or the ‘reality’ pic in due time. Should receive my first order from Wallbuys after new year…but I am expecting delays with the holidays quickly approaching.

I am seeing a lot of tempting buys at WallBuys, even items not in this 50% sale!

I used this time converter and came up with Dec 24th 11pm Eastern Standard time.  (You said 25th, I think you meant 24th.)  I guess you are 1 time zone behind EST, right (CST)?  December 24th is better to shop than Christmas night I think.

That’s what prompted me to order yesterday. Someone here posted a link to some of their promotional lights. Needed some batteries and a charger anyways, so I just put in a small order.

We’ll see if I end up sleepin’ with ol’ one eye…like the kid in the above photo. :bigsmile:

Yeah, I was looking at the cheap bike lights to just use them as a host - replacing the emitter (to neutral white) and perhaps driver, although I don't know what the drivers inside these are like.  $12.43 for this one.

I could see spending a lot of$$ on that day.  Lots of stuff for great price!!

Only concern is the sight will be so overloaded with traffic that it will crash or be very slow.

How do you like your cheap bike lights? how long does the battery last, is the charger working good? is it ‘good enough’, or would you advice to spend a little more on such lights?

Here are currently active Wallbuys flashlight promotions. I used their coupon code: MERRYCHRISTMAS and got another 5% off, plus a free cheapie gift (several to choose from).

http://wallbuys.com/catalog/promotion-good/Flashlight-promotionsuper-che...

Not sure if the coupon code will work Christmas eve on top of the 50% off…

the webpage's online counter maybe off by 16mins., so actual sale could start at 05:16a.m. Geman local time (25th of Dec) instead of 05:00a.m.

Probably goes without sayin’, but I plan on putting items on my wishlist, then just checkout when the magical time arrives. Hope this is not like the local auto dealer ads…only one at that price. :~ I reckon if the items are not in stock…then I’m not out anything anyway…‘cept a little time.

I was looking at that exact light too.  Thinking outdoor flood light (if it proves waterproof).

How do you like your cheap bike lights? how long does the battery last, is the charger working good? is it 'good enough', or would you advice to spend a little more on such lights?

 

I did a break down of the XML version here.

I have not really put it through the paces, so I cannot say much about battery life or charging.  It is very bright, though, as bright as a typical XML light driven near spec.  Beam profile is very throwy, so I added a diffuser lens (also shown in the thread I linked) which helps to spread the beam out nicely.  I have since purchased the SSC P7 version for $20 from the DX clearance sale.  It is essentially identical to the XML version, including accessories and output is pretty much on par with the XML.  Again, the beam is very throwy, but I will probably keep it stock since the XML light has the wide angle lens, hence, I'll have nice throw and spill.

My lights here and here
