In for one Type C + AR Lens. Really interested in higher current, but I don't have the knowledge to piggyback a nanjg like Tom E. Undecided Will do more research.

 

Oh well, it seems like a really good light in stock form.

Thanks again guys for the help. If you want a light you can pay for it now as the group buy is on. Just a reminder that this will end sometime this Friday.

Totally off topic.
I counted up my flashlight’s in hand or coming. . . . . 33 and climbing. 21 different types from a AAA SK68 mini to a Supbeam X40 and a BTU Shocker host.

I’ve got 4 KingKong 26650 4000mah coming (should have ordered more and saved on shipping), and about 36 EBL 2600mah 18650 coming. They are like Sanyo 2600mah cells.
Won’t handle the hi drain single cell lights. (HD1020, XINTD X3, Bourit 616 modded and the Shocker need hi drain batts)

I found a source for Efest 26650 3500mah 64A pulse/15 continuous for $5.79 and 20R’s for $3.45 ea but the shipping kills it. Only shipping now is DHL/UPS due to the international air regulations, and since I’m in Mexico not the US even buying from there I’m stuck.

I do have a friend in the SF area who could bring me some so if anyone knows of a good deal on hi drain 26650’s and 18650’s please let me know.

Got an i4, and some cheap chargers for Li-ion.
Missed the group buy on the Opus BT-C3100. Maybe they’ll have it again.

This is still cheaper than my Pitts. LOL

Hey Down_South.  Do Pitts equal Pitt Bulls?

If it does, I hear you there.  My dogs (and cats) have cost me way more than this hobby.  One dog has over twice the cost of all my lights, parts, and tools in it when you factor in the 3 surgeries and meds it has needed.

Not in this case, though I had a pit by the name of Sugar. Well deserved name.

25kg of affection UNLESS you were on the property without me introducing you first.

Rescued her from the pound at 18 mo. but eventually had to give her to a friend with a large cattle farm and a big alpha male as she kept attacking the local cows and goats.

That's how she survived to 18 mo but the alpha re-educated her. She's enjoying life now.

My Pitts was a Pitts Special, though not as nice as the one below. Ate time and money in equal parts.

Wow, you are an addict already… I’ve been here for over a year, and i don’t think I’ve reached 33 yet…. Well, maybe…. Too scared to count… Shocked

I can say I have been inspired by the ‘budget’ part of this forum, my most expensive light was bought BEFORE I came here…. :bigsmile: ( And compared to many lights, it would still be considered budget…. Jetbeam BC25 for around $64 iirc….)

Cheers

Haha, well upon looking at my own post it looks like you’ve interpreted it as myself trying to answer my own question.

To be more specific I’d like to know what time the GB ends tomorrow. Since I cannot transfer funds until I get to the bank tomorrow. And if the GB ends early in the day than I may miss out :_(

Oops - Ric said my "shipped" status wasn't real. Someone inadvertently package/prep'ed for shipping but it was returned by the expeditor to CNQ... So, if this happened to anyone else, be ware - still will be shipped as Ric mentioned above.

how fast I got addicted but I bought my most expensive light here, a week ago,  on a group buy. Supbeam X40

Now I just have to wait until they all arrive.

Until then I'll just have to suffer spending time with my GF da &j3 kmp OW stop hitting me.  I was kidding, honey.

I came across this which you might find interesting.

http://www.tinydeal.com/1200-lumens-5-mode-cree-xml-u2-led-flashlight-p-90914.html

Use Chrome to browse, select Russian/Русский on the website, then read the reviews.

Especially the second one.

Looks like a very nice light. A couple of bucks more than the Ultrafire F13 from Gearbest which people thought so highly of.

I like the look of that light too.  TinyDeal gave a coupon to get that light for $9.99 to the first like 10 or 15 users.  Based on the replies in the thread, it seems I was the only taker.

To reiterate what Ric said above.

AR lenses are behind schedule. These are expected in two days.

Group guy lights without an AR lens will ship tomorrow. This is Saturday so I would not expect much action straightaway.

The group buy has been extended until fifty units are sold so there is still plenty of time to grab a light or two. At the moment the website is showing thirty units sold.

That count should not be “units” but “orders”. Many “orders” are for two (2) “units”.

You are quite correct there Mr Sam. There is actually 36 units sold. 14 to go. Cheers.

Do not understand why the Web page for Version C, the only one for YEZL Y3, does not correct the reflector from OP to SMO.
