Edit: Nov. 1, 2014: The gray version of this light is officially now ready for order, at the same price.
Use same coupon code (gbcourui), to choose, just click on the ‘gray’ color box
Edit: Oct. 16, 2014—-there has been a mix-up regarding the strobe. It is hidden in both color versions. As quoted in this review:
A long press on the switch ~2secs activates a hidden strobe. (https://budgetlightforum.com/t/-/23051) by LinusHofmann
Edit: Oct. 16, 2014—Message from Gearbest:
Thanks for your support again!
The coupon code for the gray version does not work now, because the one we got yesterday is a sample for testing, not the batch supply, it will be available for ordering in a few days, I will update on this thread. I’m really sorry for this inconvenience *
Edit: Oct. 15, 2014
The Gray version is now available. Same product link: http://www.gearbest.com/led-flashlights/pp_85126.html
*just click on the Black - Gray box your color of choice (seen below the regular price and just above the “Add to Cart”)
Take note that the Gray version has two modes only (High-Low) and has no strobe
Tired of group buy fatigue? Well, this is not a group buy!
Here is another invitation to a good deal, but this time no more of the group buy mania, just a ’group buy’ price but no more waiting for the usual minimum number of orders to be met….the deal goes live now!
Asking just one request though: To keep this thread lively, please post here if you have ordered, or discuss the modding potential, etc.
The coupon to be used for $29.99 is: gbcourui (free regular airmail included)
If tracking is desired (highly-recommended), click ‘tracking’ for $ 1.99 upon checking out
It would be very nice if anyone with access/membership in the other fora post this deal too.
