-X3- 4 years 2K posts quadruple giveaway has ended. WINNERS DRAWN !

Back in 2014, I joined this forum to make my first Convoy S2 “mod” with an XM-L2 T6-4C, and a Nanjg 105 6*7135 driver…
Then it all went downhill, I was bit for sure…
Bought a Tank007 E09, then the now overmodded CNQG brass beauty…
I learnt about modding, new lights, was approached by Olight to make reviews, then more manufacturers…
And the collection grewn, I now have about 70 lights everywhere in the house, it really is a passion and I can’t explain it to anyone but BLFers (well, I tried but frowning is the most common reaction).

So it’s been 4 years…

4 years of discussions, trying, new products, new LEDs, new drivers, new must-haves !

Now I want to thank the community, in the BLF way : the giveaway !

4 lights were chosen :

First prize
Olight S30RII : 1000 lumens, side clicky, magnetic charging, 18650 proprietary battery and a wonderful UI

Second prize
Olight S1-mini : the compact EDC from my favorite brand, 16340, side clicky, best UI, TIR lens, 500 lumens in a thumb sized pocket rocket

Third prize
Olight M1T : The backup light, simplest UI from recent Olight products but a unique double helix machining, a usable 20 lumen low mode and 500 blasting lumens frome the high mode when needed ! Special mention to the reversible pocket clip !

Fourth prize
Nitefox ES10K : classy SS AA flashlight, warm XP-G2, perfectly machined body with a grippy knurling and a good clip (and some light similarities with the Thrunite T10 Wink )

This giveaway is open to everyone who joined before today (03/07/18), though for financial reasons I’ll ask to non-EU members to pay for extra shipping… sorry Sad

So, tell me, WHO’S IN ???

EDIT : Four random numbers will be drawn at the end, and the winners will be gifted with the corresponding light in the list above.
The giveaway ends at my BLF cakeday : 16th of July 9:28 GMT

The giveaway is now finished, the four winners are drawn !

Post #68 was the original winner but said he was out, so post #151 is the winner of the Olight S30RII, congratulations to slickpenguin I’ll contact you by PM Smile
Post #133 comes in second place, congratulations to vaping for he wins the Olight S1-mini ! PM incoming of course Smile
Post #72 own the third place, the winner of the Olight M1T is gchart ! I’ll PM you in a few hours too :)-
Gchart has politely declined his prize for he has already too many lights and see no use of a new one (there’s still some sanity in this place after all !) I asked him to draw a new winner on Random.org and the new winner is Post #7 so congratulations to MascaratumB ! PM incoming of course
Post #14 is last but not least and will be granted with a Nitefox ES10K, congratulation to nottawhackjob for the shortest reply to a giveaway ;) I’ll PM you- Nottawhackjob declined his prize, and next in line from EU (as he asked) is post #157 so Sukoi is the winner of the fourth prize, congratulations !

I found by “accident” the BLF when I was searching a proper light for mon vélo. Smile Started too with a Convoy S2+ but still a beginner.
A very interested one in flashlights. Smile
So, I’m in. Smile

“In many things in order to truly understand the small picture you have to understand the big picture first.”

True Color Rendition (TCR)/Simplified Definition: “On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest rating, a TCR will equate to what true colors you see in sunlight vs the same object’s colors you see when illuminated with a flashlight. The closer the two are, the higher the TCR rating will be.”

The TCR Reference Standard is the Walmart Ozark Trail OT 50L , Model No. 6103.
It has a TCR rating of ‘10’. $1.00 including batteries.

Congratulations -X3- on your 4 year, 2000 post milestone. Count me in.

Hopefully I'm not too late. Could not find anything about an end-date.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.
