Well I’m on the fence with regards to waiting for the review. Who knows what might happen in the minds of supfire in the next 2 weeks or so. Smile Just tryin to cover all bases.

Im in for one, when can payment be made?

BLF members are hilarious:

if they raise prices then the can change the review to trash on supfire. if they want to play unfair then we can too. doubt they will do this since as someone else said, they want to sell as many as possible. otherwise they wouldnt offer this GB

got you down. seems majority wants to see _the_'s review before we purchase. but if they dont agree to selling him one early and upgrading it to DHL for free, i would like you to refer to post #289. i would hate to see people back out at the last moment because something that wasnt originally part of the group buy does not go through

 

and on another note, i think _the_  values his reputation too much to give a bad review of a good flashlight.

They will not raise the price based on the review. The price is set. There is no reason to raise it based on what =the= says. The actual product (and its cost) would not change, they would not have time, as it would already be produced. Rework is costly.
The value for us is to have it reviewed before pulling the trigger.
The value for SupFire to have it reviewed first is potentially more buyers in the GB (50 isn’t a limit, it’s a minimum).

Welcome the night.

What the heck, this should make a great first light I hope Big Smile count me in for one at $33. I have 54 unprotected 18650’s but not a single thing to use them in yet 8) I was considering adding some PCB’s from FT to the batteries or is that necessary? Lithium tech is not new to me as I have plenty of experience with R/C lipo’s for surface and air. Considering these batteries don’t run in series is it easy enough to see by the light output when they get low on this type of light?

1 for me and I am neutral on waiting for a review. Let the more experienced decided.

Welcome to the forum Jagged. Parallel is a pretty safe arrangement. The cells stay in balance with each other. Hopefully, this light does the thing were one emitter goes out at a time as voltage gets low. The FF SRK’s do that. Even when down to one emitter, the light output is more than good enough to get around.

Edit: You do need to make sure the cells are close to the same voltage when first loading them. It is good practice to use matching cells (same batch, charge to the same approximate voltage). Obviously, the normal safety precautions like looking for visible leaks/damage, charging cells in a fire proof, well ventilated area, etc should still be followed.

and hitting 60 already. Yet they’ve raised it from $28 to $30 to $33.

the original $28.26 was not including shipping. I was hoping they would ship it for $30, but that didnt happen. so technically they did not raise it from $28-30. their original shipping quote was $21 and change... so that just shows how much negotiation went in to getting a final price of $33...

Will laptop batteries work with this light? My cousin gave me his old hp battery. I have budget for the light only. TIA for any input.

they will, but you must exercise extreme caution. with that said, all of the 18650s i currently use in my light are unprotected pack pulls. sometimes they will be too short to properly work in a light though

Mine are all from laptop packs. All LG 3000mAh pink cells.
Had a friend give them to me from recycle at his work.

Nick, I understand. Appreciate your effort! Hope they can ship it direct to me in one piece.

they will. the final price is $33 shipped via china post. it was the only available option to get the price low enough that i felt comfortable for a final price.

the members involved will pay them directly, and they will ship each light individually to each member involved

That’s the best way to do it. Thanks.

Is it an option for us to chip in for the DHL fees?
