UltraFire M5 XP-G R5 120 lumen AAA flashlight - $1.30 at DX (sold out)

EDIT: seems to be some problems with ordering.
2ND EDIT currently working, just bought 5 for $6.50

Just spotted this and for $1.30, it also has R5 printed on the side so I would assume its a genuine CREE XP-G R5 LED.

I don’t use AAA’s but at this price I might buy some to give away, they would make good stocking fillers for those that do that as well.

Not sure if its a mistake or not but in the past they have honored pricing errors.

With the $5 DX promotion voucher you could buy 8 for $5.40.

After PayPal I thought I had bought them, for some reason it says:

0×80091003: Some items’ quantity exceeds their sales limit. Place order failed.

There is no PayPal charge though.

@zeremefico

You can get a code from this thread HERE, there was over 2000 when I got mine about 10 mins ago.

I thought it was some other code ezarc:-)

I believe you can’t complete the order because it is under 10$.

So, I will try to order some enabling BULKRATE and tell you the results.

8 × $1.30 = 10.40

$10.40 – $5 = $5.40 (thats how it should have worked)

But now even just testing it with 1 I am unable to buy still.

Let me know if you do you can order?

Probably some automatic sale stop was triggered because the item was being sold much more than averagely.

Got same warning.

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

This can only take the standard AAAs and no Li-ions, right?
Any idea, how bright this one really is (compared to other AAA lights)?

be careful guys, DX will “find” the glitch and they will cancel the orders…. Too many orders of this item in a small amount of time will trigger an alarm…

but… anyone of the guys that ordered it yesterday got a shipping confirmation or something?

PS: If dx finds this, they will not ship the orders and they will tell us “item is not in stock, you want to cancel the order or change….”

I just put in for 10.

Might as well order as many as you want. If they cancel it won’t make any difference. If they go through, you’ll be happy you did (or regret that you didn’t order more).
