CLOSED, SOLD OUT: Group Buy: CQG S1 AAA, S2 2xAAA "Penlight", S3 1/2AAA - all *NW* XP-G2 R5 3C

EDIT: CLOSED, SOLD OUT!

Hi everyone,

You have probably seen the Ric's announcement of CQG S1-2-3 lights. Especially the S2 looks very nice and should serve well as a penlight, but for me there were two "issues":
1) No clip
2) CW emitter

The clip issue can be easily solved by buying also the DQG AAA clip, see here (attached to my CQG S1):
 

..but the CW is still issue for me (as a tint snob), so I wrote to Ric and asked for NW version.

=> Ric came to rescue and promised to make batch of these as NW if we can get at least 20 pcs sold.

 

Pricing: 

CQG S1, S2 or S3 are $15 each, free shipping.

Upgrade to XP-G2 NW -- $2 more

Clip -- $1 more

Claw -- $1 more

Logo -- Free

=> for example: CQG S2 with XP-G2 NW & clip, free shipping & individual logo = $18

 

UPDATE: Order link is here: http://www.cnqualitygoods.com/goods.php?id=1980

Just go there, select the options, place your order, and enjoy! Smile


So, who's in?

I will be in for at least 2 (probably 3 or more).

You can have anything you want on it for free I’m pretty sure.

I would prefer my name.

Also keen on XP-G2 @ around 4300k if it doesn’t put the price up, but I would still pay $1-2 more for it if it was a option as they would cost him more.

+1

XP-G2 4D would be great, even with small price tag.

This!  I'd love engraving as well except I want "Johnny Mac" engraved on mine, not "EZARC".  Tongue Out  If he can confirm XP-G2 around 4300k and a clip plus free engraving it's a no brainer for me.  I hope he can confirm this stuff.  

I see no problems getting this buy over 20 units.  The 1st gen S1 I have is an awesome little light.  Having it in a 2*AAA format for a penlight is irresistible!

XP-G2 NW emitters are sold out at the moment, but will try to source them tomorrow..

Pricing:
XP-G2 NW -- 2usd more (he'll confirm the tint after he knows what's available - 4D preferred)
Clip -- 1usd
Logo -- Free

=> $18 with XP-G2 & clip, free shipping & logo (Sounds very good to me!)

$18 is ok with me too.

So..

$15 – XP-G NW S2
$16 – XP-G NW S2 with clip
$17 – XP-G2 NW S2
$18 – XP-G2 NW S2 With clip
(all with optional laser etching free)

Is that correct?

Right, but I have to ask if the G vs. G2 can be chosen individually, or if all 20 need to be the same..

I'm in for one XPG2 Nw + clip ($18)

I'll probably get it etched with my name or something.

Not sure who'd be cheap enough to get the XPG over the XPG2. It's a saving of $2!!

Haha, I’m cheap enough to consider the older gen emitter. Silly

I don’t think there’s a noticeable increase in brightness.

Hey, XPG2 gives 20% increase in lumens per watt over XPG!

That's an increase of.. hang on, I think this is the first light I've wanted without knowing the output. Frankly I don't care as long as it's over 100. It looks pretty slick, and XPG2 is just icing on the top.

Ryan, if you don't get the XPG2 I will..

I just realized it was Hi > Lo > Strobe
For some reason I assumed it was just Hi > Lo like the DQG

Do you know if it has memory or always starts on high?

I think on Ric’s announcement thread, he said that it’s no memory and always starts on high.

Yeah I just found that now too.
So at least we don’t have to cycle through strobe.

My thoughts, exactly!

Ric confirmed also that the free logo printing means individual logos, so better start thinking what you want. "Your Name" would be cool. Wink
