Ooh nice!! So I just explain how I got here? Well here goes! I was looking for cheap flashlights and was searching for reviews just to confirm quality and stumbled upon BLF and CPF. The only reason I joined BLF was because the font was larger and the interface us much nicer. As I was browsing I saw OL’s builds and was thinkinget he’ll this old man has skills!! So I took the jump and became a member Smile

Another thing that attracted me was the mods!! I mean cm on! ! Cheap flashlights with ‘expensive’ output? Who doesn’t want that? So I finally registered myself as a member.

Now, I only just started here and now I have 7 lights. A SWM C22C from the GB, EA11 from another GB here, a Solar force M3 I got from Xed888 during his holiday which I got to meet him and had a little chat Silly , a Convoy L4, a Fenix PD12 , a cheap Chinese zoomie, an Ace beam Kim from Banggood’s flash deals, NC MT21A, and finally a Jetbeam WL-S4 on the way!!

Oops that’s 9 eh Party

Words can be broken,
so can bones.

Nothing fancy for me… Was just looking at searches on Google and here I am!

Was lurking for far longer than I’ve been a member.

Great thing, that Google, and Great bunch of guys at BLF!

Thanks,

GearBest is doing this, you say…

GearBest has the distinction of being the ONLY Off-Shore dealer that I have ever ordered “Anything” from!

It was a Nitecore EC21 from the Group Buy on here – 21 days from China to Florida, and I couldn’t be Happier!

Arrived in Perfect condition, and Nitecore did their job too.

Nice Light!

Thanks,
-Chuck

Budget Light Forum, huh…?

It really doesn’t matter how much these things cost individually, I’m still gonna be just as Broke at the end of the month no matter what:-)

Such is the plight of a Flashaholic, I reckon.

OK Boss! – That’s My Three:-)

Thanks so much for the chance – I don’t have one of these lights, though I do understand that it’s a Classic.

I’m in, and I googled a flashlight question and this site also came up.

Not what we have but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.

I was searching for my first modern LED flashlight, and was going to buy a 3AA light and thats how i found BLF. With good advice from fellow members i did not buy it but did purchase a better light that did ok with 3AA but better with lithium i bought a few weeks later to power it!

Always interested in flashlights but got really obsessed when walmart started stocking higher power lights. So read up on them and found this place. Seems folks here don’t like the stuff walmart has that much.

I found BLF searching for info on a good flashlight and what types of leds are out there. Still learning and reading the forum but not posting much, normally reading just clears it.

Excellent source of information this forum.

I found BLF when looking for LED flashlight info on

Google. The answers from it’s members were very

informative and straight to the point. Not snooty

or stuck-up. I’m still here and learning. Wink

Thank you.

I found out BLF from a few members from ‘the other flashlight’ forum. I personally like this forum more due to I don’t have much to spend on lights.

I found BLF after my wife bought me a an Olight warrior for my birthday. I was thinking hey, I can mod this. But it’s too nice of a light so I left it stock and turned some cheap lights into really bright cheap lights.

sedstar…entry #1, how i got here…

i got into flashlights by accident. i scratch-build night vision? spotters and weapons mounted? anyways… the IR illuminators is about half the battle… once my scratch builds were going half decent, it was time to play with IR illuminators…

eh, which is really a IR emitter “zoomie”, basically… I was first at “the other flashlight site” (which shall not be named, lol) and REALLY i didnt like it over there, not very much…

more budget lights, scratch builds, etc etc “going on” on this site anyways… plus when you added in the “no snob factor” of HERE? well… here i am…

somehow? i ended up getting into visible flashlights on top of my IR zoomie interests… even though i never intended to? now i am hooked.

With enough black coffee and cigarettes? all things are possible…

I am currently still shipping… REAL GENUINE CREE xp-g emitters, the classic… brace yourself? as low as 20 cents apiece!! Check out the SALES THREAD, everyone is happy… then PM me

SALES THREAD:
http://budgetlightforum.com/node/52528

if you are into reloading? this is my site… I inherited the remains of what was once arguably the best reloading site on the internet… its the “BLF” of reloading sites…

http://reloadbench.freeforums.net/

if you think night vision would be cool? It IS… this site i am a member of, and its basically the “BLF” of home made scratch-built digital night vision. They are at the leading forefront of advanced DIY for digital night vision, and thats gun mounted or handheld… builds rival and exceed commercial offerings…

I promise to break the sipik within 2 days of its arrival if i win one, LMAO… i cant keep my hands off of anything i buy now, lol…

My wife’s nephew in the Philippines wanted one of those advertised package deals for a zoomie Ultrafire Cree XML T6 2200lm with 2 18650s and a charger. I decided to investigate before buying. A google search led me here and to that other forum. Now I’m hooked.

As it turned out, I bought a Convoy C8 and 2 UltraOK ZS-2 from RMM and a cheapo C8 and 2 cheapo zoomies recommended here from MyLED, a couple of budget chargers and some 18650s. It adds up fast, doesn’t it?

Now I have a nice Skilhunt H02 headlight and a SWM c22c added to the collection and waiting for the EE A6 and LS D80 BLF-SEs is perhaps the best way to slam on the brakes, for now anyway. Wink
