    Burned up one of my Cree Q5, Anyone got one laying around?

    Well, I waited an entire month (yes, I ordered them from DealExtreme on 7/7, just got them today) for my Q5's on stars to show up and guess what, one is a dud! I am just about to lose it over this light project. Does anyone know where I can get one Q5 on a 20mm star? I refuse to do business with dealextreme, I could have shipped a package to Mars and back quicker than it took them. Please HELP!!!

    Ok, ok

    Ok, I bought (7) more from dealextreme and paid for their fast shipping. If anyone out there has one now I'll pay shipping and give you two in return! This LED thing makes a man desperate!

    I've been thinking of dropping some cash in a candlepower forum group buy to make some DIY Dinottes. I see Brum's got R2s up for sale now, but he'll only sell them if you buy optics.

    Link to sale here.

    They need a US distributor for these. I think there's enough DIY people out there to warrant it. I think I've seen this idea on here before but would there be any interest in one guy buying a bunch and reselling them slightly over cost to those who don't want to wait a month? If I can get enough response on here I have no problem dropping a couple 100$$ on some LEDs.

    Well you might buy 200$ worth of R2s and tomorrow Cree release R3/4s and nobody wants your suddenly crappy R2s. US distributors seem to want to fedex everything which makes shipping significant. My last few ordered from cutter took around 1 week, shipping around 5US$ (to NZ) so I don't know why you would think twice.
    Whenever I get parcels from DX and Kai, its like christmas, the shipping is so slow I always forget whats inside.
