Got this rare Nichia 219B gem: L3 ILLUMINATION L11C NICHIA 219B (if I recall correctly the L3 brand is made by Supbeam/Acebeam)

..and some other “too low-priced to be true” items.. hurry while they are still available.

Check them out here: HERE

Btw, the Supbeam K50 (now Acebeam) is “only” $39! For me, it’s one of the most practical designs ever… a magnetic ring selector with a mechanical switch at the base for 0 parasitic drain.

Just grabbed one of those, a no-brainer for $39. I too always liked the magnetic ring selector.

Yeah, it’s one of the best value for anyone’s $39, considering the quality of the Acebeam/Supbeam brand, they’re reliable and durable.

I got a “shipped” notice today, though l was informed earlier that my Acebeam PT10 should be cancelled, replaced or refunded due to inventory confusion (no more stock).
I decided to have it replaced by one more L3 Nichia 219B.

This is actually my third time to purchase from their closing out sale.

Those L08 and L10 are nice lights. If not a little large for the AAA format.

The L08 might be a little on the large side for AAA, but the L10 and L11 are fairly compact for AA lights.

True true. Any hands on with the L11? I have one L10 which is nice. The 11 is a clicky right? How’s reliability?

Yes, I think the L11 was only available as the L11C – with a reverse clicky tailswitch.

It was my favorite EDC – very slim, decent switch, decent beam profile, good clip, perfect mode spacing, perfect output regulation, and a 219B emitter.

But I mistakenly let it fall from a 30 inch high desk to a laminate floor after a year or two of use. It died. I’m not the only person who has had an L3 Illumination light fail from a relatively small drop. I’m guessing that in head down drops, the battery hammers the driver PCB pretty hard.

I liked it enough, though, that I’m tempted to buy another since it is on closeout, and just plan on being more careful with it.

Most of the emails have been replied and orders shipped. We did run out of K50 and are sorting through the partial refunds Thumbs Up

Nice deals. Does the “Penny Shipping for Orders Over $50” still apply with the clearance sale?

Update: Just got the answer from SBF (and thanks for the fast reply!). No more Penny Shipping due to USPS price increases.

But still great deals. I picked up an L3 Grab Bag and an MC1 Plus charger.

Just grabbed a couple Spark lights. I got 3 from a previous clearance, modded them all - easy to mod. They are well made but nothing fancy - no square threads for example. I think Spark as a company is long gone.

Just wanted to say Thank You to Jake and the guys at SBFlashlights. The L3 Grab Bag and MC1 Plus charger I ordered were shipped fast and I’m very pleased with everything. The 50% off clearance sale made for some incredible bargains. The MC1 Plus looks to be a quality small unit, and the L3 Grab Bag lights were a very nice variety and included L11Cs, L10Cs, and L10s, with a good mix of Nichia and Cree, 3 and 4 mode, and black, orange, and natural.

Well done, and thanks, gents!

Andrew

I have received my Sparks SL5 and is is malfunctioning and the buttons only work when both are pressed and it only cycles through the modes, the light will not stay on, I have sent several messages to SB over the month about this and previous orders, never getting a response

I am not looking for a refund as all sales are final, but merely a response or a replacement, maybe some assistance with possible troubleshooting, I’m looking into the warranty info, but with sparks being out of business for so long, I don’t I think that is a viable route to take

DOES ANYBODY HAVE ADVISE ON MY NEXT COURSE OF ACTION??? , I APPRECIATE THE COMMUNITY
MAYBE SOMEONE OUT THERE CAN HELP
Have a good week guys TY

Ohh, I think I had the same problems as you describe with both the SL5 and SL6 I received. It was weird behavior with the buttons. There's some sort of issue I think has to do with time on the shelf, maybe oxidation at contact points, not sure.

 Anyways, I got both lights working 100% perfect now. All I did was pressed hard down on the buttons (only a couple or few times) and clicked on them many, many times. Eventually the mis-behaving buttons started working. Think with mine the tail buttons would work, and the side ones didn't. But even initially the tail buttons were not working properly. If you searched, these lights data back to ~2011-2012 I believe. I thought I could mod them with driver swaps but doesn't look so doable with these Sparks. 

 What's really interesting about these lights is they have the inner sleeve and tailcap e-switch, way way long before that design came back again, starting with the FW3A. Just goes to show you old is new, and new is old... Something like that smile. Pssst: it's a better design than the FW3A, using a spring for the inner tube contact. Extra resistance though but more reliability!

Give it a shot though - try pressing down hard once or twice. Might be scary but it started working better right after that for me on the 1st light, then did the same trick to the 2nd and fixed that one as well.

I've dealt with the SBflashlights guys before and found them very helpful. This kind of sale though is scary, sounds more like a going-out-of-business sale.

The one time I contacted them on 11/25, just prior to my recent order, I got a quick reply from Sanjin: sanjin@sbflashlights.com

Super Appreciated Tom E and AFAustin, I am going to try both methods as soon as a I get a chance today, we will see! Hopefully I can just clean all the contacts again,
The sleeve for the e switch does seem a bit rough and pulls cotton on qtips. Would you suggest maybe lite sanding or does the fact that the light will light up with both buttons pressed rule that out
Thanks again y’all
Michael
