A horror show would be 1A substitute 1B, Yuk!

3D substitute 3C, E gads:-(

5A sub 5B = Yellow as hell…

It happens, ya know, but sometimes for the better.

Hank ran out of 3C with his M43 (yay!) and substituted 3D (yay again!)

We will be lucky if they do not have to sub for any tints.

All of our current tints lie on or below the BBL, which is where we need to be, IMHO.

Thanks,

5B1/2 is my favorite, I won’t mind if they switch my 5A order with it. Smile and may be not more yellow than 5A

First, Many Thanks to Bugsy36, Krono, Wight, DB Custom, ToyKeeper et al for their management and technical contributions to this group buy.

More Appreciation to Banggood, Manker, and Eagle Eye for their involvement and partnering.

Received my code and link via the PM last night. Ordered my 4 x NW (5A).
Email received this morning to notify that it is shipping!

Wowsa! Wowsa!

Cree tint

I agree, 5B1 seems to be the best balance of actual visibility, good color rendition to me. My de-domed 5B1 pushes it into the WW range, and the color may take a bit of getting used to, but I’ve noticed comparing to several other tints in NW range that it seems to be the best at low level distance illumination. I like being able to light something up in the distance softly without much glare and keep your night vision well and I can do that with my dedomed 5B1 light. Warmer and I seem to have to pump out the lumens for the same level of detail and cooler is no less visibility or lumens but more glare.

I agree with Tom E – THAT IS A DAMNED GOOD DEAL FOR THAT BATTERY!!

This isn’t too bad either for folks in the USA.

Neal,

Thanks for helping the A6 Group buy happen!

My BLF A6 order #7938538 that I placed yesterday (2 lights, 1 5A, 1 3D), I am concerned that the 5A tint model will be sold out and not ship because of the 3D tint one showing as not available until Aug 18th.
When I placed the order all the tints said, “ships in 3-6 days” or something like that.
Shortly After ordering them, the description changed on the 3D model. I would not have ordered them together had this been listed at the time of order.

Is there any way that we can be sure my 5A model is put aside until the 3D models show up?
I am confident that I am not the only one with multiple lights in same order.
I tried to PM you earlier but appears to not have gone through. If it did, I apologize for bothering you with this.
LMK
Thanks,
Keith

Any news on the limited-availability (~50 units) for the bare-aluminium version?
Assuming there will be such a small quantity, I suspect there will be no such selection in tint…
So which tint will the non-anodised version be likely to have?

I ask because I would like to hold-off buying this tint in the regular version, and instead buy the other tints so that pills can be swapped as wanted in each host.

Also would be able to lego the anodised and non-anodised for a black/silver mashup. This could also resolve the lock-out thread lacking on the non-ano.

Thanks in advance for any heads-up…

The A6 uses an integrated shelf instead of a pill. One short section of the light holds the driver and emitter, so swapping tints might involve a small amount of soldering unless you don’t mind having a black section in a silver light.

appreciate this GB very much, big THANKS!

thoughts: I am in on the tiny little Quantum GB, $22 for the Stainless! For $3 more this is a lot more light! Oh well. Looking forward to getting the smaller host, whenever that transpires. I’ll need to pick up at least (1) 18350 cell. I passed on the battery deal for this light, yes $5.84 seems great. But I try my 35A cell in other lights and I just DON’T see any difference! I really don’t.

I have (3) lights in the mail. Exciting.

Thanks again to all concerned!

They would have to be lights that pull a lot of Amps for a high drain cell to make a difference.

If it’s still possible, I’d be down for one NW naked/non-anodized light in addition to the two I’ve already ordered. Thanks to all who worked to make this light and group buy happen!

Ordered a 3D since it wasn’t confirmed that I could get a WW (5A). Thanks guys for doing the work! Now the waiting begins,,, :ghost:

My gratitude to those who are willing and able to help others (in whatever way you can)! Being human is more than just existing for yourself. Smile

Are these better than eFest INRs?

Anyone know what the limitations for shipping to the US are these days? Are you still unable to import Li-Ions? Will Banggood ship to the US?

Thanks!

Although I ordered within 2 and 3 minutes after getting the pm I don´t have a shipping notification yet, as opposed to some others.
No problem, wait is already long enough that a week or 2 extra wouldn´t matter anyway, but it makes me wonder if they fill out the orders in the order coming in or just at random.

Hehehe, you are probably right!
This light is so special they can´t take the risk to send it to some hidden anonymous person!

I ordered immediately after getting the code (1st posting after Bugsy posted them) and I still haven’t gotten a shipping notification. I just figure it’s the way things work with overseas companies.

Sorry to disappoint but it probably should be said:

1) You need a light which pulls a very high current to see any difference in the first place.
2) Some people do not see much or ANY difference until the lumens are approaching double.
3) You really probably wont notice the difference between the low drain batteries on the list and the highest drain batteries unless you are looking for it, or are comparing it with another light directly.
