@Bwana:

Nice deal!

4xAA is pretty reasonable if you don't like Li-Ion cells.

Great idea, it’s only a matter of time I fear. The combination of black color & strobe clearly puts many of our flashlights into the assault, scary & lethal category.
And should a person add a lanyard the assault flashlight could be swung & used as a deadly striking instrument.
Think of all the innocents & children that would be saved. Wink

After one of the last Mass Shootings an old man in the health club asked, what’s with this Tactical Clothing the shooter had on. One of the guys in the club ( A former Police Chief and has a self defense school ) said it’s just clothes — The old man said people shouldn’t be allowed to buy that kind of stuff

I had to throw in there, what about some of my Flashlights — They have Tactical Mode and some has a Tactical designation —- Wait, Wait for it

The Old Man said what, That’s just a Flashlight “ Priceless” —- They walk among us Folks

I have a few Cold Steel knives, machetes, a tomahawk or two and maybe a spear. I like their products, but their advertising would provide a prosecutor a ton of material to use against you if you used one of their products for self-defense.

I’m glad they don’t make flashlights.

Just received mine yesterday and it’s nothing special as expected. Unfortunately I jumped early and paid the $6.99 price. I originally thought it might be a good light to toss in the car for general use and not be upset if it was lost or damaged, but I think the protruding strobe button might be too easy to unintentionally activate. It’ll probably just end up being a *fire battery holder in the garage instead.

Heads up on one of the older deals.
Grathia Rechargeable Camping Lantern Solar Lantern with 4 Lighting Modes IPX45 Waterproof Camping Lights Led Lantern Power Bank LED Flashlight Lanterns for Power Outages Hurricanes Emergency https://a.co/72XSnt2

Mine has an issue and it is a battery killer. The first cell I figured was due to it be a cheapo cell. After the second I decided not to use it any longer. I assume the circuit with the solar panel is missing a diode and when the panel isn’t charging its pulling off the cell.. but I don’t know that for sure and I haven’t done any testing

Got mine today as well. Kind of big for a basic 18650 light. Beam pattern is on the throwy side. Not a whole lot of difference between hi and low mode. I was surprised to find a USB charging port on it – the description didn’t mention it. Alas, on mine it doesn’t work.
Finally, pictures on Amazon show magnetic tail – mine doesn’t have it. I’ll probably just send it back.

It's $6.99 for me too, and I don't have Prime.

You do have to place a $25 order to get free shipping if you don't have Prime, of course.

Great deal … many thanks.

Nice Keychain light but the “C” charge port silicone cover is worthless. Came off after first charge.

... Happy Landings ...

Not Amazon, but I don't feel like creating a new thread...

 

15% off sitewide at monoprice.com with code "ENCORE", also from sale prices.

I don't need anything from Monoprice right now, but they do have some good stuff at good prices.

They have some nice over-ear headphones, for example.

Maybe not a “deal” but cheapest I’ve seen it including battery. Acebeam E70 Mini w/ battery for $62.95 after clicky-coupon. I’m on the fence.

Yes! That's $12 I'm no longer tempted to spend on something I already have plenty of. Good job! (to me) Smile

Geeez I thought you had ‘My’ keys for a second…….. what’s that scary skull key to?
I havent had a problem with the usb cover however I bought mostly to use the clip on a pocket or backwards cap but the clip comes loose REAL easy and it would be REAL easy to lose the light if it was not being used. I will probably glue the clip…….. Facepalm Sad Beer

Im not a Pessimist …. just an Optimist with a lot of experience

Lumintop EDC02 is still dangling at less than $8. A good buy (lowest I ever saw was about $6.75).

Scary Skull key is Kwikset … front door key.

Agreed regarding the clip. Silicone “C” cover is the worst I’ve seen to date. No lock out is a bummer as well. Not very well thought out by Wuben all around.

Good deal at this price point for a utility side light.

... Happy Landings ...
