I think this is Light In The Box…look at the other flashlight listings…must be some pricing errors.

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.

Scam?


I doubt it it’s a scam.. seller sold a lot more other expensive stuffs unlike typical ebay scammer which sell trinkets
they more like trying to unload unpopular item from their store before the year end.
these lights after all has been out for awhile now.
it’s a great light.. it’s one of the first light that got me started hoarding some more flashlights :Sp
I like it so much I bought few of them as gifts.
it’s cheap, widely available and practically almost indestructible. even if you manage to break it ( other than glass) it’s not going to make you cry and feel bad about losing it. Big Smile
just change the driver and add 30mm aspheric lens for more throw and it makes a decent EDC light Big Smile

The only way to do a great work is to love what you do.

Scam?

Trying to liquidate XML stock?

He has a lot of low prices on cheap lights.

I can’t quite make out the history (I really freakin hate private listings), but from what is visible it doesn’t follow the same scam pattern as other scam accounts.

Edit: the $10 headlamp shows xml2, might be time to try out a cheapie headlamp.

AND the 3 UP SKYRAY for $7.75. ………..

Grabbed one, figured it would be a fun little mess around piece if nothing else.

And a 502b.. Should be a halfway decent host.

I grabbed 3 of the 502’s the 3x is gone or I would have bought one of them too.

I agree it doesn’t follow the usual scam so I don’t think it is. It might be a mess up in their pricing like the SK68’s that went for $2.50 a while back from another seller.

Six of these left.

I’m a junky, I mod lights so I can sell lights so I can buy more light to mod so I can sell lights to buy more lights to mod.

I find my lack of self control a little disturbing. Big Smile

I saw triple, 2× 18650, $7.75 and pounced so fast.

I would have bought the 3x before posting it here but I just received a tr-j12 from an OL Christmas giveaway so passed on it. Hopefully one of you can post a review after receiving it.

Sure thing,

I primarily charge liions with a hobby charger so that isn’t an issue. I do however run a ton of unprotected cells.

I thought it over and do have 2 × 17670 AW cells somewhere. I’ll now exclusively run those cells in this light. But yeah, basically I run a LOT of unprotected cells. That’s the main reason why I never sought to get into liion lights in serial. However if I keep it to one light of this type I should be okay. Wish me luck on this front Silly

I grabbed 3 502b’s as well. Also picked up 2 of the headlamps that were $4.89. since everyone is picking up some 502bs, I wonder how many they actually have in stock?

Dispute it if it doesn’t arrive before ~44 days.
Do they like to send an empty box or piece of junk with tracking so they can try to claim they actually did send it? Wouldn’t do any good when a bunch of disputes from different buyers come in.
