Any discount codes?

Not what we have but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.

… in The Great Pacific Northwest, where we see the sun before most of the rest of the USA!!!

If you have difficulty in establishing “value” in our hobby – where some lights/supplies are becoming commodities – then you need only deal with Mountain Electronics once.

I’m sure you’ll see the difference.

There will always be more darkness than I have lights.

Just placed my first order with Mountain.

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.

My only negative with MTN so far is that my last order with Richard was the first package that USPS…ahem…“lost” on me. Great service and communication, and that his prices are no less than the overseas retailers is an awesome service in itself. Vielen danke, Richard!

RMM created a one-stop-mod-shop that we in the US have been wanting for a while.  Not to downplay what a place like IS contributes to the modding community, but RMM has all of the little stuff we need on top of hosts, batteries, etc.  I just hope the business continues!  I don't want to have to order from China for essentials again, especially batteries Smile

I dealt with Richard this past week, by far the best dealer out there for this stuff! I ordered a custom Qlite however ended up changing my order and then a few days later placing a second order all together. He combined the two orders and refunded my shipping from the second.

The part that really put him over the top was that he programmed the pair of drivers exactly how I wanted (a non standard way, single mode with a 120sec step-down).

I will be using him again in the future for all my driver and battery needs.

Yeah, just had some conversation with him through this forum. Really nice, fast and the only thing which is preventing me to buy stuff from him is the big ocean between him and my place…

Here's the link to his web store. He does ship international also.

The coupon code BLF used to work on some items (use all caps) but I'm not sure it's still active anymore. Perhaps Richard will chime in here and let us know.

The BLF code worked on the batteries but not on lights the last time I tried it. May also work on some components but I have not bought any yet. Considering Richards light prices compared to most other USA sellers I can see why it does not work for them. BTW the discount is only 2%. Better than nada for sure.

Not to be too picky, but when I lived in Yelm, we saw the sun after everyone else on the mainland. Just messing though.

A whole lot of flashlight dealers/retailers ought to rethink their business plan!!! A new Sheriff is in town, and his name is Richard. Thanks for the dozen or so times you helped me out Richard.

Hey Babe, check out my new light!!

Fyi, Richard, Calvin and Craig have been awesome about fixing my stupid little mistakes when I order.  It's one of those little things that make it so I don't even bother looking for other vendors if these guys carry it, and sometimes I'll wait for them to carry or restock it.  

The low mode should be lower.

I’ve been placing international orders from Sweden without a problem. I’ve had to pay customs on one order but I was prepared for that.
My experiences with Richard is that he will go out of his way to help. His offers to help me with my own screw ups have been far more generous than I could have hoped for.

So as long as he wants my business he has it. The additional shipping costs is not an issue for me because I know I will get what I’ve ordered within reasonable time.

Do you think MTN will ever be able to do free shipping?

Can you do FREE shipping?

Considering MTN are in the US, any free shipping would require it to be built into the price anyway. Unlike the Chinese businesses that have postage subsidised heavily.
