the question is not about the sale run out of time.. more like if he’s going to run out of stock for this particular battery pack at this price

Mine left San Jose, CA on Thursday. It shipped 2 day Priority Mail so maybe I will get mine tomorrow (Saturday) Smile

I ordered a second one also, probably get that one next week.

Two packs are enough for me. I didn’t even really need one pack but I’ll mark these cells and see if there is any measurable difference between them and the run of the 18650 I get out of used packs.

I got like 9 used packs for $35 once and that yielded me about 80 good cells and a dozen bad ones. My Spark headlamp shows me which cells are lacking by reduced runtimes so these new packs are destined for my work headlamp and Vamo V3 e-cig.

Can someone please tell me why I need 100 18650 cells? I have 15 lights that use this cell and I rarely use any of them. I always use my AAA lights when traveling and the only 18650 light I use daily is my Spark headlamp. Maybe I need to start using my 18650 flashlights more.

Never performed a battery pull before, but I couldn't resist the price. I'm assuming I should proceed with caution...

I’m on the Gulf coast. When the hurricanes and tropical storms hit, I’ll have enough batteries to keep lights on in every room. :bigsmile:

Haha!
No on both counts. The only redwoods left in redwood city are installed on people’s decks…
Just returning a favor in kind that has been extended to me many times as a lurker. $2 Sipik, $13 Tangsfire C8, $25 6x Skyray, battery packs from in and out computers… Not to mention the wealth of information that has been freely provided for a new found hobby.

Well, it wouldn’t really be so bad even if so, as long as the cells are new and good condition, its still a deal. Tks Siskiyou. Like I said I already bought some of these previously and they have been good cells over many recharges (and a bit pricier too).

My thanks too Siskiyou, but I have to point out the significance of your chosen location.

“Behind the Redwood Curtain” makes reference to the Classic Movie “Wizard of OZ”. The actual phrase in the movie was “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain”

Here is the dictionary definition of the phrase:

the man behind the curtain

Noun.

A phrase used to describe someone who is in the background secretly plotting and conspiring or also a hypocrite of great proportions.

Derived from the movie The Wizard of Oz.

just thought you should know Wink

That’s great! Now I’m a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma… and a very bad wizard.

If you want to amuse yourself further google “behind the redwood curtain”. I assure you I have no association with that vendor either. Further down the search results is an urban dictionary link that will explain everything…

I assumed it was a play on the old cold war “iron curtain”.
Looks like I was right :bigsmile:

_Redwood Curtain (adj) The Redwood Curtain (RC) is the extreme northwestern corner of California, i.e. the coastal counties of Del Norte, Humboldt, and Mendocino. The RC is the norcal version of the Iron Curtain in eastern Europe erected during the Cold War and is mostly used in a derogatory sense, whereby the RC symbolizes the area’s lack of cultural or metropolitan qualities as well as poor transportation access, sparse development, rugged geography, and a weird provincialism among the native locals._

“Behind the Redwood Curtain” has a certain meaning that has NOTHING to do with the Wizard. Smile

I really goofed on that one!

I ordered one just before the original sale ran out. If it looks good, it’s going to very hard for me to keep from ordering more. Especially with the ENB battery bank I have in transit….

You are right. These cells are perfect for the battery banks. I particularly like the ENB 3 cell. The triangular configuration of the 3 cells makes is compact and additionally it can be used as a charger. Perfect for charging 3 cells at a time for lights like the FandyFire Warrior. And I don’t worry too much about over discharging unprotected cells in the Warrior because it starts blinking when the cells are run down.

Thanks for the heads up…ordered one pack. How easy are they to open up?

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.

Most packs are pretty easy. There is no “correct” way to do it but there are some wrong ways. Don’t just bash them because the protective covers on the cells can be ripped fairly easily. General I pry open at the seem and proceed to snap parts of the hard plastic off as I go.
