for the Lumintop Thor LEP (appears to be “18350 version only”), is there an 18650 body tube included or available separately?

Wow, 30Qs for $10 each. I paid $5 a year ago. They must be phasing them out.

That’s not the reason. Demand of automotive industry is at the moment higher than companies can produce them. There’s less and less of decent 18650 and 21700 cells available on the market because of automotive industry buys them all and prices are skyrocketing.
Get them wherever you can if you find a decent price. From what I heard from various sources it will only get worse.

I just bought some Samsung 18650 35E 3,500 mAh flat-top batteries from Neals Gadgets for only US$6.95 apiece; and 18650 30Q 3,000 mAh button-top for only US$7.95. Cheapest that I have found in my Internet search so far. This seller is also offering 25-33% discount for Father’s Day Sale. Go take a look.

Sometimes, Banggood offers things for Flash Sale with a good price, which is better than the price of the same products on their manufacturers’ websites. Moreover, sometimes there are special discount “codes” or “coupons” from different sources, including some from this Budget Light Forum, that can be used to save some money. This is what I have learned from joining the BLF so far.

Good luck with your flashlight shopping!

CRC,

If you are new to Banggood, you can take advantage of your “new user” status and get some good “coupons” for special discount, ranging from 10 – 20%. Find and enter the “coupon centre” area of the website.

Too bad, I was inexperienced and too hasty. I used all the good “coupons” on cheaper flashlights.

Take your time. Browse Bangood’s website and make a good list. Then carefully use your discount “coupons” on relatively more expensive items to get maximum discount. For example, an expensive powerful flaslight could be priced at over US200. With 20% discount, you can save US$40 easily.

If you can wait a little while, I guess there will be better and bigger “Sale” during the Fourth of July holiday.

I've never heard of banggood before. Why choose to buy here rather than direct from a manufacturers webiste?

I think this is a good store. I have more than 60 purchased items in my order list in three years.

Unfortunately, I cannot yet create an online store with hundreds of thousands of products in stock))))

I am promoting the products of the Banggood store on a commercial basis.

 

By the way, do not forget to follow my links when you use the coupons listed in this thread.

Hey. I ordered WP2 on Banggood with code. After arrival when testing flashlight I noticed a high mode pre-Flash on low and medium mode when turning on. I bypassed tail switch and problem is still here. I sent a question to Banggood and they said they will ask manufacturer. This is answer I got from banggood: The switch stroke has reached the lighted position so that the circuit has formed a path. This situation is very rare, also is normal. Anyone has any advice? Dispute, return item? THX

I’ve had goofy light malfunctions before. What has probably fix half the problems, is a good going over the light. Get your needle nose pliers and unscrew the retaining rings. Wipe down all contact surfaces, then reassemble. I’ve had dirty contact surfaces and loose retaining rings cause problems I didn’t think they would. After that file the dispute.

You cannot buy the Convoy-4×18A SBT90.2 5400LM for $ 66.99 using code: FIN9345 at BG.
More like $74.54 before shipping.
I just cannot buy from BG with inconsistent pricing.

Oh i can relate. I bought the Astrolux MF02s V2 about a month and a half ago using Fin's coupon and it as $202 after taxes, shipping and Insurance.. I checked the price a couple days ago (with the same coupon) and it was $185.. nice to see i overpaid $17 and now i want to/need to sell it and ill lose even more money..

No I agree, but the MF02s V2 has been out for over 6 months. And it was $185 before, I just missed out and bought it when the price "spiked". It happens with most products on Banggood, I have a watchlist with 70 products on it, and check them at least every 3 days. Prices change a lot. It's fine, but on the bigger purchases (over $100) people just need to be aware that if they wait for a dip in the price they'll make out on it. 

also- Fin, I really appreciate your discounts. I am not under the impression this is your fault. I understand it is banggood that changes these prices. Amazon in the US does the same exact thing. I've taken screen shots to prove that long ago

I am very glad that you understand.
I get very nervous when BLF'ers have pricing problems, shipment delays, quality problems.

 

I do, and I had hesitations about even posting my problem with it, as I understand what the solution is. I definitely appreciate all of the work you have to put in to bring us these discounts. I feel like tou are among the most consistent with doing this. Thank you.
