GROUP BUY CANCELED AGAIN. Blackshadow Terminator T70

GROUP BUY CANCELED AGAIN.

 

The group buy has been canceled again.

 

Blackshadow is refusing to supply wallbuys now because they saw this thread has become active again.

 

I am retiring from this thread. If wallbuys wants to restart the group buy, they can do so themselves.

 

 

Hi Blf

I am going to email wallbuys the evening about the possibility of a group buy for this light.

http://wallbuys.com/Product/BLACKSHADOW-TERMINATOR-T70-4xCREE-XM-L2-LED-...

 

Its basically the blackshadow terminator version 2.

From the cpf thread

Black Shadow has some good news for you :
We release TWO upgraded versions of Terminator today, T70 and T80.

T70 is similar with T80, the difference on structure is quantity of emitters.

Update June 5 2014

response from WB

 

battery details:
 
SF US 18650GR (capacity unknown random color)
NCR 18650  MH12210 (capacity unknown)
Samsung ICR 18650 -22B 
UltraFire 3.7V 2400mAh LC 18650
UltraFire 3.7V 2800mAh BRC 18650
etc.
we randomly choose the batteries
 
I have to say that the batteries are inventory of our warehouse. some of them are disassembled from storage batteries, all of them are in good condition, but I cannot promise they are the same as the new.
 
Besides, if you don't want the batteries, it is OK
To be fair , the price will be $2 less than the quoted price per one without batteries.
 
In my honest opinion the batteries sound like old stock and could be junk. If they are samsung icr they might be ok. But ultrafire batteries are garbage.
 
Also there is the possible issue of buying li-ion batteries and shipping them internationally and having the parcel get seized by local customs.
 
Please buy the batteries with caution and at your own risk. Are they worth the extra $2? Maybe, but that is for each member to decide.
 
We have enough pieces already to go forward with the group buy - I will ask them for payment instructions and then post them here for all to see. You will be most likely sending a paypal payment for a light with or without batteries to wallbuys directly and then they will provide tracking and support from there.

Response below

Hi, Justin

Thank you so much for your attention and support on Wallbuys
So glad to know that you like Wallubys, jajaja

I am pleased to tell you that I can offer $90 (with track) if the quantity over 10,
If the quantity is 5-10, I have to say ,the price is $95 at least, we earn almost zero.
($103.34 if use the coupon code)
Besides, if the quantity over 30, I can offer $82 per one

How do you think?, I thought it is a good deal ,and personally speaking, I like terminator t70, every body deserves this little monster, :D, Big Smile

Looking forward to your reply

Good Day

Im in as long as we get it down to 90$. Smile

If the others are still in we only need 4 more people.. Give it some time. If its going slow, post on CPF too.

82$ if over 30 people are in! That would have been one heck of a deal. I doubt its going to happen though.. Too many group buys lately, and its a lot of money for most people. Maybe if someone put the word out?

Either way, Im happy with 90$.

wallbuys has announced this GB on the flash light forum as well – i am going to see if perhaps they can combine the total numbers from each site into one big giant savings deal of doom for us Smile

It's a very good light, on par in quality (IMO) with far more expensive brands.  At least the previous version was.  If there was review of this one I have a feeling 20+ wouldn't be an issue.

Just got a 'old' version from IS with XM-L2. Definitely interested in this one too. Put me down for one.

I’m not in, since I just got the last rev of the old one and I don’t need two… but I still want to see what happens here.

I had once thought to replace the emitters with de-domed XP-G2s to make it do ~150 kcd (more with resistor mods), but focusing the thing would be incredibly difficult. The stars slide around pretty easily and the only way I can think of to get the focus even close would be to remove the lenses and use tweezers or something to delicately slide the stars from the front while screwing down the reflectors.

Wow. Pretty impressive compared to some really nice lights. Very few of the compared I would consider to have ‘beaten’ the T70 in both throw and flood. Most notable to do so was the X60 at more than triple the price of the T70.

Looks like I’m choosing between this beast and a dedicated super throw like the tk61.

i hear you – getting any type of de-domed emitter to focus correctly in a smooth reflector can be a major pain… not to mention there are 4 in this light to worry about
