There can only be one! (Can’t justify 100+ on flashlights in a month)
I’m leaning towards the BTU.

Would you please post a link for the shocker?

It was a black friday deal that Ric posted. 30% off BTU and DQG coupon.

This is wallbuys ali-express and the link is for the SST-90 Trustfire T-90 I have bought two of these from them. With the ten dollar coupon it’s $58 and that is a great deal for an amazing light. Pop in an XM-L2 and look out.

What’s better deal? The Yupard for $30 or the King Clone for $20?

Buy them both, I did!

Really it depends on what you’re looking for. The Yapard is probably the better deal though. I haven’t seen a 5x with a handle that comes close to that price. I like it because it should be easy to mod with the tailcap switch. But then again $20 for a King clone is unreal cheap.

I couldn’t find any flashlights I needed, then after installing AutoCad 2014 my computer said “I’m running low on disc space”

So I picked up this super nice Hitachi 4TB 7200rpm hard drive for $162 shipped: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/free-shipping-Free-Shipping-HDS724040ALE6...

Hard to beat that deal.

I don’t plan to mod. I just want a super bright light out of the box that is reliable and a good deal.

I also bought one of these.

http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Free-ship-Wholesale-HOT-Sell-7000-Lumen-6x-CREE-XM-L-T6-LED-Bulb-led-Flashlight/628446088.html

It’s a 6x for $35 and comes with 3 26650’s and a charger.

I like the 6x for modding. It’s a decent size reflector for 6. It’s going to get 6 de-domed MXL U2’s that I have laying around on noctigons and two of the 5amp 3x IO drivers. (Lightmalls has them 5 for $32) I’ll run it with the Sony 50a 26650’s.

The batteries and charger will be good enough for some of my single 26650 lights.

I also bought one non-flashlight deal for my wife. It’s a dual core JXD android emulator game console for $59 it’s a steal and a great bribe for me spending this much on lights. They usually sell for about $89 on sale.

When Western Digital bought Hitachi they renamed that line of drives to HGST = Hitachi Global Storage Technologies

High performance drives rated for 24/7 use.

I would probably go for the King then. It’s a nice size light too. You can fit it in a coat pocket and it will be very bright.

I have never had a credit card either, but I have a debit card with buyer protection on it from my credit union. I can transfer money on-line from my saving account onto the account with the card. I got it for when I go on vacation and need to rent a car or whatnot. I also use it to pay my bills on-line and it has frequent flyer miles, so once a year I get a free ticket out of it too. I’m sending my wife back to see her family in Monterey California this year. Last year I went to Fairbanks Alaska to visit one of my Army buddies. We have a disabled son so one of us has to stay home with him.

I love my credit union. I won’t use a regular bank and I haven’t paid a cent in interest to anyone in over 20 years.

Here we can get a credit card ($7 yearly fee), and it’s 0% interest because it’s pre-paid. No fee to move funds to it, no service fee’s to use it, etc! Totally free all around except the $7 yearly fee. So when you go to buy something online, just transfer the exact amount to it (happens instantly), then voila. Super secure and great way to have a credit card.

Check with your local banks and see if they offer something similar: http://www.bmo.com/home/personal/banking/credit-cards/prepaid-credit-cards

tried to quote the above

i was under the impression that a SST-90 was brighter than XM-L2 ….
am i wrong again ?????
what are the stats ??

The SST-90 emitter will put out more lumens but it can’t touch the XM-L2 for throw. And now with copper stars you can push the amps up so high that it’s . With a de-domed XM-L2 you will still get around 1500 lumens vs 2500 and about 6 times the throw (Kcd).

It’s a fairly simply mod and makes a huge difference for the better. I have modded ZY-T08’s with the same driver that is in the T90 and with a de-domed XM-L2 it smokes the stock T-90. I can’t see any point in lugging around a huge light like the T90 unless it really throws and it doesn’t do that well with the SST-90.

I do look for SST-90 and SST-50 hosts though because they are generally designed for good heatsinking because the SST emitters produce a ton of heat.

Here is Scaru’s charts.
