Picked up one of these USB power supply—It has an LCD screen showing voltage—amp draw and capacity — only $7
I’m very surprised the output exceeds it’s rating of 2.4 amp @ 5v—the LCD screen matches my UM25C tester for voltage and amp output but the capacity runs about 10% high

I have one of those and like it. I did not try to verify the performance in any way, but it seems like a good buy, depending on the price. I got one for ~$4.50 on ebay a few weeks back. Periodically they start there at 0.99, and typically sell for between $4 and $5. $7 without bidding is not bad.

the link for today’s deals has disappeared from the home page, I don’t know why but it happens a few times a year…anyway if you want to find it, mouse over the “departments” link near the top, select “full store directory” link, then scroll down near the bottom and look for “bargains: todays deals”

It’s a bit of a higher price on Amazon.ca, but for many people, paying +2$CA is better with faster shipping.

I ordered a couple of these EBL 26650 Zoomie’s. At $5.99 each they were hard to pass up. I will drop a 26650 in it and use for locking up the chickens, dogs, hunting, evening walking, etc..
The zoomies give a great flat, even, smooth, flooding wall of light that I like. My kiddos like them too.

I will update when I get them in hand. I will be dropping a Keeppower 26650 in them.

I plan for my wife to buy me a Jaxman Z1 XHP50.2 Zoomie for Christmas :D.

That looks like the old W-878; there’s a review thread somewhere. Think back then most of them went to hollow pills. This one is likely also a fake emitter. The original had a direct-drive emitter pulling over 4amps from a 26660.

Got them in today and both are great for around the house, etc. The are bright and put out very good light and compare with many other name brand lights I have.

I’m happy with them.

I have the 9” version. It’s a pretty decent fan. I like it. And I paid a lot more for it than the current lightning deal price.

Amazon.com has a Lightening Deal on an 18650-powered 6" clip-on fan for $9.99 until about 3:30 EDT Oct 17, 2018. I have no first-hand experience with this fan, but the 1800+ reviews are mostly positive, and rated A by FakeSpot.com.  

My first impression of the ComLife 9" fan that I recently purchased during a Lightening Deal is positive. It is both quiet and can move a good deal of air. It has two speeds, High and Low. To me, the breeze in Low is almost too strong for up-close personal use. Example, for sleeping. So, I wish there was a speed below Low to conserve battery(ies). 

I am returning the 11" fan because it vibrated excessively on High. Actually, I think it was a prior-return by the way the box was taped up. Amazon is not charging me for the return which is one reason I like doing business with them.. Because of the good performance of the 9" ComLife fan, I personally see no need for an 11" fan. As far as I am concerned, the 9" fan is more cost effective.

There are times when I return stuff to Amazon as well, but one has to be careful not to return too much. Apparently Amazon tracks this and will cancel your account without notice if they decide that you return too much. Unfortunately, the “too much” part isn’t defined anywhere.

Another Amazon.com Lightening Deal on 9" and 11" ComLife fans begins around 11:00 AM EDT on 18 Oct 18.  First impression of my 9" ComLife fan is positive. Recommend.

 


 

Update:

The original price on the 9" fan is $19.99 and the deal price is $16.99. Savings, therefore, are $3.00 (15%).

The original price on the 11" fan is $35.99 and the deal price is $22.94.  Savings are $13.05 (36%).

These deals run until about 4:00 PM EDT, 18 Oct 18.

Wow, they don’t give ya much time to pull the trigger, do they? And only one per customer, apparently.

Had to scramble to find something else to pad the order to get free shipping, so got some AA-cell cases. Wanted some colored SunBowStar ones, but got generic translucent ones instead. Still not too bad.
