My headlamp broke the other day. Is there a coupon code for the:
Skilhunt H15 CREE XM L2 U3 500LM LED Headlamp – NEUTRAL WHITE LIGHT?

Thank you!

Can someone please help me understand the difference between the Eagle Eye X5R CREE XPL HI and Eagle Eye X5R Cree XM – L2 in practical terms? I understand that they’re different emitters, but what makes the XPL HI worth a few $ more?

XM-L2
Max Light Output (lm) 1052 lm
Viewing Angle 125

XP-L HI
Max Light Output (lm) 1095 lm
Viewing Angle 115 °


Eagle Eye X5R XPL HI 1A ($24.99) – 2.3 cent per lumen
Eagle Eye X5R XM-L2 1A ($21.99) – 2.1 cent per lumen

Thank you – sounds like they’re pretty close in performance. I doubt I’d be able to tell the difference with my naked eye Smile

Hold on.

The difference between XP-L HI and XM-L2 is predominantly the absence of a dome in the XP-L HI variant. The “HI” stands for “High Intensity”. This means that the lux value (=throw) is much higher than the non HI variant, including the XM-L2. So the total amount of light (lumens) is about the same, but the hotspot is smaller/tighter and brighter. The link is a comparison between the Thrunite TN4A and Thrunite TN4A HI: the first uses XP-L (HD), and the latter XP-L HI. You get a good impression what the difference is (XP-L HD is about the same as XM-L2)

XTAR is sent from a warehouse in the USA.
ON THE ROAD is sent from a Chinese warehouse.

So it will be two different orders.

I recommend choosing “Priority Line” for an order from China.

I paid the extra $2 for priority and $1 for insurance figured it would be good idea. The priority line says 7-12 business days but i wasnt so sure about that short of time.

Yesterday I received a coupon for OPUS-C3100 with US-plug.
I did not post it on the forum because the price with the coupon is $31.99.
The regular price on the GB-site is $ 32.29

Please notify when you receive the order.

I think that users from the United States will be interested in the delivery time via “Priority Line”.

99% of the time “Priority Line” shipping from GearBest to the USA will arrive in the stated time frame. The clock starts when order is placed.

At least that has been my experience over the past year & many orders.

Just FYI also, I never paid extra for insurance & always used PayPal.

I hope your experience is as good as mine have been. Smile

10% caustic soda (NaOH) and 10 minutes. Smile
Not counting time to disassemble unnecessary Ultrafire.

There are many topics about removing anodizing on the forum.
For example – http://budgetlightforum.com/node/487

Now I’ll try polishing…
