DQG Hobi Group Buy

Hey Guys

GearBest is willing to do a group buy for the DQG Hobi and extensions if interested. The Hobi uses the same 10180 battery as the DQG spy and Fairy and has two outputs: 10 Lumens and 120 Lumens. The difference is the Hobi uses an optic for a tighter beam and you can add extensions. With one extension you can add a waterproof capsule or a tiny lighter (upcoming) to the other side of the Hobi. With two you can run the light with a bigger 10440 battery. The Hobi also comes in Cool or Neutral white.

http://www.gearbest.com/led-flashlights/pp_184880.html

Please post your interest and whether you want just the light or with the extensions.

UPDATE 6/1/15
I finally have the GB price and will be PM’ing the people who posted interested. PM me if you’re if you didn’t get my message or you’re new and want the GB price.

Is titanium an option? I have 10180 lights in steel and brass and I’d love to complete the set.

With extensions definately

If the group buy includes the brass version of the hobi, and the option for the little brass charger, I'm very interested, thanks for organising this!

Definitely interested in a Hobi. With or without extensions, it depends on the price.
This would be my first group buy, so is there any info how these group buys work? Is it a problem that I live in the Netherlands?

Seeing that a fellow dutchman has replayed as well, I don’t think that the last would be a problem :P.

I’d definitely be interested in the light with extensions as long as the price is in my budget. Sounds great! Thanks.

I already own all three, extensions for the hobi and the psk capsule, I highly recommend these lights, especially the dqg spy xp-l edition

Can we get a battery included? I don’t have any 10180 cells, so it would be great if we could get one along with this light. The listing you linked says the battery is NOT included, but they also don’t have it for sale separately on the site, and a 10180 IS included with the Fairy.

I would be interested in but only if included batteries and extension and it was reasonable.
Thank you for your efforts.

Good point about the battery, without it the light is of no use.

Gearbest does sell the battery separate, though it says it does: http://www.gearbest.com/diy-parts-and-tools/pp_136125.html.

But still, its better when the battery is included with the light.

Well, thanks for showing that they do have a listing for it, even though it is out of stock ATM. Flat Stare I couldn’t even find a listing when I did a quick search for keywords “10180 battery” before.

Edit: Banggood has some Veleno Designs 10180 cells in stock for $2.99 each. The DQG cells at the Gearbest link are/were $1.82 each. However, the DQG cells are 70mAH, while the Veleno Design cells are 90mAH.

Do the extensions fit the Fairy as well as the Hobi? I would be in for this as well, and since I have the DQG Fairy, if the extensions fit that as well, an extra set of the extensions would be great. I would figure they would, as the charger fits all three, but do not know absolutely, which is why I am asking….

I picked up the Fairy recently and it is pretty sweet. Only thing I don’t like about it is lack of knurling of any sort to help with twisting to turn on/off. Looks like the Hobi might be a bit better, but still somewhat slippery.

I’ll check on the battery and see if we can make a package deal with light, battery, and two extension. Maybe even a coupon for the charger.

I am interested (without extensions) but if it includes the 10180 battery… depending on the final price.

This battery is out of stock.

I am also interested in an extra 10180 battery and in the PSK capsule to carry it.

If anything can go wrong, it will.

That would be great! Even though I have the charger, (and it works great by the way), I’d be in for the light and two extensions.

Perfect!
With battery and charger it becomes a viable product I can use myself or gift away.

Ok spoke with GB and they will make a pick and choose combo so those that need a charger can get one and those who don’t can skip it. The light is stainless steel not titanium, I will ask if that’s possible to get; the main group buy will be on the stainless steel version. I can also ask for them to include a deal on the Fairy for those who prefer the brass model or the Spy. I have the Fairy and it’s a great light, the brass is really nice.

I need to ask which extensions people want. There are two options

1. http://www.gearbest.com/diy-parts-and-tools/pp_182267.html for using the 10180 battery and also having a waterproof capsule

Or

2. http://www.gearbest.com/diy-parts-and-tools/pp_182266.html with two of these you can use the 10440 battery.

I’m interested in a price for one light plus two 10180’s and extensions to use 10440.

I would like the #1 for my preference, that way the extra battery is always with the flashlight. Though if #2 wins, OK, I will use a 10440 then…

Is this a progressive twisty or is that some other DQG light I’m thinking of?

I’m interested if the price is right and better than getting it straight off of taobao.

I have spare Veleno 10180s, if anyone needs them in the US. Would sell them each for $1.50 plus shipping.
