Hi everyone, MOVED TO HERE>>>https://budgetlightforum.com/t/-/40346#comment-965420
I was curious if anyone would be interested in having an S2+ 18350 with an XPG3?
Convoy S2+ 18350 host
Cree XPG3 S5 LED in 2C, or 3A tint on copper MCPCB
Mosfet linear driver with DrJones Guppy2drv
AR coated lens
Snap on Pocket clip
Price for the base model would be $26.50
Shipping cost would be based on location.
Why so expensive? Is it the driver? Which driver exactly?
I might be interested.
Expensive? Sounds like a bargain to me (shipping to Germany would be killer though)
Edit: Will more than likely be in for 2+ with all the works.
I’m actually glad you ask. It can be hard to tell what the group will thing is a low price. I happen to think this is one, but I figured not everyone would agree
The driver is manufactured in the USA here in the US. Its a variant of the BLF DD board. The firmware is also custom to which a royalty has to be paid on . Those boards cost me almost as much as the host do.
Here is the full spec on it if your interested.
Also the LEDs are top bin and I have to get them from cutter which adds a good bit to the shipping cost. The LEDs will also be on a copper DTP MCPCB
I will assembling them myself so they carry the Adventure Sport warranty.
There is also the paypal fees to consider.
I really make no apologies about the price. Very little of it is labor.
This will be a quality light with the very best components available on the market.
Thanks for the information. Ok, with this driver and the good components the price is more than appropriate.
I didn’t know you are assembling all by yourself and assumed the light would be produced completely somewhere in china.
Sounds like a great deal. Vestureofblood’s work is top notch. Put me down for a 3A.
All the best for the sale vob. This being assembled with quality products by a first class flashaholic maniac is a bargain. Prices get lost on us sometimes with what we pay from China.
$26.50? Sounds like a bargin to me. I blew 11 bucks on two beers at the restuarant last night.
Im in for a fully loaded version
VOB - Ya gots to be off your rocker! You are going to be very hard pressed to make $3-$4 profit, if that much, and that is calculating free labor.
You are offering one hell of a deal for this light but you are still crazy
To fellow BLF members...after shipping etc etc...an individual cannot build this equivalent light for $26
That would be great in desert tan color when its available, i always liked the idea of copper and a better driver in the s2. The desert tan s2 is a must buy for me anyway.
What are the benefits of xpg3 Leds? Is this natural white? low voltage protection?
My favourite programming mode would we number 18 in the list
I would like to have one (or 2-3) of these.
In with all the embellishments.
Thanks for this generous offer.
$26.50? That is pretty much how much it will cost me to just buy the parts…and I still have to build it lol.
This is a great price, I wonder what color is available for the host.
Not to mention all the other shenanigans or MAP enforcement.
