CANCELED - Group buy feeler thread: Ultrafire LW-12T6

I was not supposed to talk about this yet, but as the issue surfaced in the deal alerts thread..

We are arranging a GBGB of Ultrafire LW-12T6 <-- affiliate link (= "Thank you for the GB!"), non-aff link here

 

The light is reviewed here: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/32097, and price will be under the price mentioned in the deal alerts thread.

Two questions:

1. Who is interested?

2. Would a L2 version be desired (even at a bit higher price) or should we go with the old L-T6?

I would be in for one or more even but only if I know what driver is in it. If it has the same driver as the one from lightscastle then I’m in. But people have been reporting that they are not all the same driver and that the other driver is not even close to the lumens I was getting with the lightscastle driver.

Also if it does have the right driver then I would prefer XM-L2’s it’s worth it for me.

I’m a junky, I mod lights so I can sell lights so I can buy more light to mod so I can sell lights to buy more lights to mod.

If this is the same as the one 18sixfifty reviewed that puts out 7000 lumens then I am definitely interested

We are trying to source the exactly same light than what's sold at Lightscastle.

To make sure, I will test the sample and check the driver before this GB is officially launched.

I'd prefer L2 version too, but am afraid that it will be somewhat more expensive. Price negotiations are still ongoing..

I’m in either way, but I’m willing to pay a bit more for L2.

Geez. Go calm yourself. Its a tracking link to see how many times the link has been clicked.

The internet is free territory, he can post whatever he wants, it is up to you to decide if you want to click on it.

You’re right, the internet is free territory so I will warn others as I see fit. Thanks for reminding me. The OP deliberately hid the ulterior content of the link he created which is frowned upon on this forum. He knows it because he has been asked to cease this activity before. Also watch the marketing campaign clip the shill is using from his link to learn the purpose of what is being hidden. Its affiliate marketing.

Please don’t purport to speak for the rest of us by pointing out things that are ‘frowned upon on this forum’. You’ve been a member for 3 years and you’ve got 14 posts. Your sig is some rant about shilling. WHat’s up with that?

==================

I’m willing to pay a little extra for the XML2 model. XML>XML2 difference x 12 is significant!

It's too much for me.  I can't come close to keeping up.  If I could, I'd have several $500 flashlights.

The low mode should be lower.

I'm interested, especially if it's L2 (It would be nice if they would tell us the specific bin and tint).

While I disagree with parts of your post, I will admit that I did not look at the website before saying it was only for tracking purposes. My bad.

This is/going to turn into a cycle of butthurt, and a rehashing of topics better covered in other threads. I’m out. Deleting all my previous posts to clean this thread back up. Sorry the for the intrusion.

If you can’t blind them with your brilliance, baffle them with your bullcrap.

I apologize for not including the non-aff link in a hurry. Embarassed

However, what is even more not cool, is to mess up a GB thread with this affiliate discussion. There are a number of threads for it and the conclusion, agreed by Mr. Admin (our one and only moderator), is that affiliate links are ok as long as they are not hidden. My signature has warned you about them for a long time already, so that part should be covered.

I'll add the non-aff link for your pleasure right away. After that, let's stop the affiliate discussion in this thread and continue discussing about the GB or the light. If you feel a need to discuss about aff-stuff, you can continue in a new thread (or some of the old affiliate threads).

Count me in, brother, as long as the price is right.  Not sure how much lower the price can go than it is but if it gets close $50 I might be in.

Glad to see this is beginning to grow wings. I am interested in the L2 version. Preferably the grey color option but I know that may not be possible. Thanks for working on this GB.

Yeah, hard work since 7/11.. After two weeks of back and forth emails, we are almost there..

The light is so heavy that only the shipping cost is $15-20, but we are currently talking of about $60 shipped for L-T6 version (or more for L2 - no exact info yet).

We are talking also about changing the modes, but haven't got confirmation from the manufacturer. I'd like to have it 4-mode with good spacing, without blinkies, with working mode memory, and higher PWM. I'm even willing to pay more if that can be achieved..

Both examples of mine (Lightcastle) do not accept protected batteries; please advise if this version is similar.

Received and ordered one month apart. Exactly the same and very, very bright.

Thanks

Very interested in this materializes, especially if there are changes to the driver to get rid of blinkie modes, have mode memory, better spacing, and L2.

Good point. I'll test that if/when I get the sample.

I see that you're trying to arrange this with Gearbest.  If it's a long duration group buy like it was with the Opus charger, then I'll get one.  I just don't have money for it right now, so I hope it doesn't end as quickly as most group buys.  And I definitely want the L2 version.  If I were to throw out a number, I'd say L2's are worth $10 more.

 

I don't care about the driver since I plan to swap it with a BLFDD version.

The low mode should be lower.

Please add me to the interested list.  Even if it's xml not l2, and with no changes to driver I'm still pretty interested.
