$9.90

Thanks
Here's an explanation off of another thread that may help you!

The Phillips uses the Luxeon LED which is about half the efficiency of the CREE LED. If you look around on the dealextreme site, you can find some VERY bright CREE flashlights (900 lumens +). One note, I'm not sure any of the lights on dealextreme really put out the rated lumens but you can at least get a feel for the difference. Read the reviews carefully on them.
The Ultrafire lights with the Phillips LED are not that bright. I have the red and it isn't really good beyond ~50 yards. If you want a bright white, you need to go with the CREE LED lights such as this one

http://www.dealextreme.com/p/ultrafi...2-cr123a-16240

That one is very bright and can easily reach 100 yards+. If you go with these CR123/18650 battery lights, be sure to buy the rechargeable batteries and a charger as they will burn through the regular batteries fast

tried out the Ultrafire WF-501B in green, blue, and red last night. Bright as all get out and pressure switches seem to be working good. However, I ran down to the local CVS to get batteries and it was about $15 for two batteries...ouch! I plan to order the brick of them but just so you know those 123 batteries can add some cost to each light.

Just order some 18650 rechargeable batteries and charger when you buy the light. Should last longer than those 123 batts.

Hogs are considered non game animals...so yes, but during season u may want to let the warden know your intentions at night hunting

I have a tracking number according to DE.com, but no shipment confirmation email, and I can't open the tracker cause it asks for item # and I've tried everything, oh well, hopefully something will come in the mail soon!

I put mine on my bow last night, it worked great. I lit up a target at about 40yrds. I'm happy with it, not bad for about $15. Got to get me some more.

Ordered 3 more last night. I showed mine to a couple of non-TBHers and they tried to buy mine for $40 but I wouldn't sell it. I told them I would order them one each and they can pay me what it cost to get them.

Anyone thinking about a cheap/less permanent mounting idea, how about just zip tying the light to your stabilizer? Then cut 'er off when you're done.

Tried to order a couple of the lights and the order came back" payment of order was failed, pay again". My credit card is good for it but even after 3 attempts I gave up. Anyone else have a hard time getting them to take your money? Was not Paypal btw...

I ordered this mount. Does a great job holding the light in place. Goes in with velcro and only $2. Can't beat it.

Here is my light on the stabilizer, stays in place no problems. I ordered a pressure switch, just don't have it on. The whole set up was less that $15.

Got batteries for mine this light is great!! I'm ordering more for sure might get a different mount setup though. I'm going to have to get some for my brother and friend.

Here piggy piggy. I can just smell hog on the grill when this light kicks on.

Bearcat2004, Thanks for the reply! Yes I was saying I tried the regular credit card and NOT the Paypal account which I do have. After thinking about it I went back and tried it with my Paypal account and it DID go through! The next day I get a call from my credit card company wanting to verify an attempt made on the credit card to the hoglight company, It turns out the fraud warning kicked in and the card was declined as it was not recognized as being used in my usual and historical manner! I verified the attempt was me and made sure I was not going to be charged now since it was already paid for by Paypal and Thanked them for guarding my credit card account from a possible fraudulent user! All is well now....just waiting for it to get here so I can go KAPPING!

A Buddy of mine has a light from one of the major hunting light companies. I talked him into letting me take it apart and after comparing parts on my Deal Extreme lights it appears that they are ordering their lights from DE and engraving another name on them. Even came with Ultrafire batteries from the company.
