FireFoxes 4 HID, [originally a GB thread], ($230., shipped via DHL), ($205 via Singpost) w/ beamshot links in OP

Who wants to join me for a group buy pre-order of a Firefox4 HID for ****$230****, shipping to be added according to destination and courier? Yeah, yeah, the seller is what we call a frequent violator of BLF anti-spam forum policies but I believe his price is quite good you guys might be interested. Minimum of 20 total pre-order units.
I’m in for unit #1 (recently lowered to $205 if shipped via Singpost, now at $230 if via DHL, READY FOR DELIVERY)

contact \:

bill.qiao@163.com or doingoutdoor.com

I am on the other group buy and want to see how things go since there aren’t any production models available. Any shipping estimates to the States? I may be in for 2.

I think posting here will make a headcount but for the final details on the whole transaction and freight/courier add-on, you will have to email Bill. The FF4 is not in his product line but he already has made arrangements with the manufacturer if ever a group buy materializes, that’s why he has a quoted price already. As for me he already have given me the freight charge add-on and it’s priced competitively.

According to Bill, the light is estimated to be available in May, but no exact date. He said freight will be cheaper if he sends all the lights to one address, but I declined that arrangement since a possible world-wide destinations would be a logistical nightmare. I have bought some lights from him (Doingoutdoor) and it’s been great so far.

I suggest all interested parties to contact him via his email address so all queries will be answered directly.

Again, it’s bill.qiao@163.com

Sure is tempting, when would we need the money by?

if the kcd is over 300, count me in for one.

basically, if it can compete with a sr90 with a sbt70 and a tn31 with a dedomed xml2-u2….ill be in for one,
but if it wont be able to hang with those two lights mentioned, then ill pass.

Might talk to relic38 in Canada, can you ship to Canada??

This is testing my resolve, i might have to get one, loved my FF3…hmmm

My understanding is that there needs to be a minimum of 20 pre-orders for this to happen, is this right Bill ?

New user here but long time lurker…

I’m very interested but what would happen for warranty ?

Also, is it possible to buy an extra bulb ?

Depending on the answers, I’m might be in for one…

I’m in.

Is this the same group buy that is being linked on CPF?

IE: Is there more than one group buy going on?

and

Do I also need to email Bill?

Bill says 13.00 to my address for 2 ff4s but i will see what happens with the other group buy. I know people were receiving their ff3s from CN in 3-4 days from the main sales site. Wait and see how this plays out. Maybe Fasttech will start selling them too. Yeah that and the Fenix TK-75 with XM-L2.

lawallac, are you sure he can ship to US? It was mentioned that he cannot ship to the US, possibly due to sales territory conflicts. If this is not the case, then $13 shipping is not bad at all and that’s for two units.

Welcome the night.

I had asked before that was brought up. But I haven’t heard from lips yet anyways. His Gb has considerably more followers at this point but this. I know he has run gbs in the past for some great lights but I always took it as a benevolent gesture more than a capitalistic opportunity, mostly due to the work of routing packages and potential unhappy people. Maybe he is ok with everybody going to do a Gb with bill? We have lots of time still.

Lips in the FF3 GB sold the light for more (25$ more) than what you could buy it at a retail like flashlight-torch.com, who now pre-lists the FF4 at 289$, wouldn’t be surprised if the FF4 was around 300$ in Lips GB.

As to a thread on CPF, it says that someone has exclusive dealership rights in the USA for the FF prducts. Bill can only sell to you if you are not geographically located in the USA.

We should just have him send all of them to one of our friends up north. Then they ship them to us.

Send the lights to someone you know in Mexico perhaps? hehehe
