Hi everyone,
I wrote this 4 weeks ago, but I’m just posting this now. My name is Jim and I am writing a review about the flashlight store called the Illumn. The Illumn store has been open for the last 10 years and is owned by a man named Craig. I can’t say enough good things about the store and it’s owner, Craig. Illumn has an extensive list of many different brands of flashlights, which are at very good prices. I am fairly new to the flashlight scene and had many questions. I emailed Craig MANY times. Craig was always quick to respond and answered all of my questions. I ordered the light I wanted and received it quicker than scheduled. After receiving my light, I fiddled with it and messed it up. I informed Craig that I had a problem and he called me promptly at the time we scheduled. Without hesitation, Craig sent me a return shipping label and is fixing what I had done to the light, which he did not have to do. Illumn is the first store I will be visiting for my flashlight and accessory needs. I would give it more than 5 stars. So check out the Illumn store for all your flashlight and EDC gear needs. Since I wrote this, Craig has returned my light in perfect condition. He can be reached at supply@illuminationsupply.com

Illumn is a great shop. Never had a problem with their products or customer service.

I love checking out their discount/closeout page every week or so. Always some good stuff there.

Just placed my first order with them tonight. Good to hear the positive support here. I hope I can echo the sentiments as well.

As a noob, these enthusiastic recommendations are very helpful.

Not to be an echo chamber, but this Illumn joint is straight up legit awesome. I emailed them a question about a battery last night, and had an answer from Craig in 9 minutes!! The dude is on his game. Likewise, with Illumn offering less expensive USPS shipping options, it takes some of the bite out of ordering smaller quantities.

They get my business. Thumbs Up

No I post them strictly because of how I have been treated. You will get the same treatment and sales I get

Not as far as I know, but I’d gladly shill for Illumn unprompted. I’ve never had a bad experience, and the prices are awesome, especially for a small business.

Ps- I believe Craig’s email is actually support@illuminationsupply.com

That’s why I post ,only because of Craig and how he has treated me. I also have posted about Ben with Mateminco, he is great to deal with also. There are a couple of places that are not so good. I have thought about writing negative reviews about but haven’t as of yet. Not sure if I should.

Great folks. I like that you can buy name brand quality batteries for about the same price as China ones (or a small premium), but you can rest assured that the ones you get from https://www.illumn.com/ are real, and not some rewrapped disaster bomb.

Yeah, I’m with you on these guys. (Illumination Supply)

I agree 100 percent. I went with some some unknown places to save a dollar or so per battery. And what I got was junk. Batteries with internal Resistance in the 90s and low 100s.so now I will have to buy 8 more batteries. And I’ll be getting them from Illumn. I received 4 vapcell batteries today from Illumn that all 4 of them have internal Resistance of around 25.So don’t do what I did and try to save 4 or 5 dollars only to have to purchase from Craig at Illumn anyway.

I made a quad Convoy M2 with these Illumn Nichia NVSL219BT-V1 4000K D200 L2 R9080 LEDs back in 2019 and the tint is spectacular. Probably my most favorite flashlight. I’m surprised they’re still available.

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.
