** My First Giveaway ! - ( 1000 Posts light giveaway ) *WINNER ANNOUNCED*

Now that i have reached the 1000 posts here on the Budget Light Forum, – its time to support the tradition of BLF with the 1000-post Giveaway !

Winner will be chosen using your reply/post number in the topic as yout ticket number picked by random.org/.

– - – The Giveaway prize will be a lightly Modded Defiant Control-Ring Zooming Light.

- Some have said they had a hard time or unable to find these at their Home Depot stores, so i’m giving this one as my first giveaway prize. I kind of like these lights as they are different from the other various Defiant lights we seen, as this one has a similar moving-post Zoom configuration as the LED Lenser lights, and has a very wide and smooth flood mode, with a throw mode still having some flood. (unlike traditional zoomies that have no flood when focused to throw) This light also works great with a non-protected 18650 using a spacer tube, making it multi-cell compatible.
These came with three modes, Low, High, & Strobe. The XP-G2 Neutral White emitter is conservatively driven, i got 1.05 Amps at the tail cap on High, and 0.09 amps on Low using 3 AAA cells in the AAA carrier, giving the light a good balance of run time and output. I use one now in my truck clipped to the sunvisor, and have carried one several times while night Geocaching in the back country and on camping trips. Its has a good feel & balance for holding with or without gloves.

- I did a quick mini-review of this light when i first found them here: >> http://budgetlightforum.com/node/28424#node-28424

I did some mods to this light, first with some mild machine work on the outside with polishing. I replaced the original emitter with another XP-G2 with slightly more neutral tint with a higher CRI index in the 4200K – 4700K range. I left the driver stock to keep the light as a good balance of usable run time and output, especially with an 18650 Lithium. i did modify the AAA-battery carrier by removing the spring from the driver and placing it on the carrier, and soldered a copper button on the driver, to allow use with the longer protected 18650 cells. I will also include a 18650 cell spacer tube & with the 3-AAA carrier so you can use it with 18650’s, 3 AAA Eneloops, or Alcalines.

- To Qualify you must be a BLF member with 25+ posts or more. The winner will be selected via random.org. Smile

- How to enter ? simply Post here to count you in !

  • Giveaway contest will end and winner will be announced in 1 week, on Wednesday, March 19th,2014. Light will be shipped without battteries.*

Below is a photo of the Beam Profile, Top is fully zoom to flood showing the wide smooth flood beam, and bottom is the Zoomed out to show round hot-spot with some flood still in the profile. A better combination in throw-mode than standard zoom lights.

Congratulations to Post # 11 ! ( Bort ) for winning my first BLF Giveaway.

Fer sher!

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.

Can you post a pic of it zoomed since i’ve never seen an LED lenser so i don’t know what your referring to

"It is critical that there is a credible academic source for the growing and important discipline of alternative facts. This field of study will just keep winning, and we knew that all the best people would want to be on board. There is a real risk in the world today that people might be getting their information about science from actual scientists"
