One day sale at WOOT.. 2 lights for 5$

http://sellout.woot.com/sale/black-and-decker-led-pocket-flex-flashlight-2-pack?utm_source=Daily+Digest&utm_campaign=938401c0ff-Daily+Digest+-+20110908+-+Woot&utm_medium=email

5$ for 2 lights..... 5$ shipping

10$ for 4 lights ..same 5$ shipping

15$ for 6 lights ....same 5$ shipping .... 3 of these sets is the most you cabn buy unless you call your family members .. this is my 4th purchase of lights off of woot ..the last 3 deals were way too good to pass up so i'm sticking with the plan  of always buying three for 20$ untill I get burned . the last black and decker lights were so strong / so heavy and well built I was floored how much bang for my buck I received . the 6 wootlite mag-lite clones are excellent  and i'm not shy to saty ..Buy these too .6 lights for 20$ ..worse case scenario ....you gift them .

Boaz, 

I think the last 2 lights' deal are better.  I like both of those lights.

Nice, I have seen these in Wal-Mart for almost $10 each.  I have one of their 2AA lights that isn't bad for <$10.

I read somewhere that they were alright, but nothing special.  I think cycling through the modes was what kept me from trying one from Wallyworld.  For this price they will make good gifts.

But if you guys are buying budget lights to give as gifts might as well save it for something they won't generally have access to. Take advantage of all the knowledge you've picked up here at BLF. Give them something different and BRIGHT they wouldn't already find at wally world! Smile

Sears has these for 14$ each with free shipping ..... instead of 2 for 5$ I would agree that the other lights might be a better deal ... but.... like I said ...everytime i purchased anything from Woot deals I was very surprised how good they were. the last black and decker lights were very impressive .Many times I recieve a flashlight i expected to like and am depressed immediately how average or poor it is .Woot lites have continually been the opposite reaction for me .. 

  So I'm riding the wave ..

I had a few of these lights rat holed away and always liked them ..Little red light /green light and a pretty bad main light ..

        Super simple mod .

 I sacrificed the green led and replaced it with one of the hi cri 3400K nichias .... and now life is better .

Very cheap Woot stuff is most attractive if you have Spamazon Prime so you get free shipping. I don’t have it myself though I do occasionally buy from Woot.

I do have a meh.com membership (free shipping for everything from meh.com/sidedeal.com/morningsave.com) and they have flashlights pretty frequently. I have reviewed a couple of them:

https://budgetlightforum.com/node/78871 Halo 3/$6 1aaa light

https://budgetlightforum.com/node/78763 Litezall 2/$7 3aaa headlamp

I think both are nice as small gifts.
