    In the interest of recycleing.....

    Does anyone here sell their DIY lights after you move on to the next best thing?

    I pass mine down to friends that need them, for free cause I'm stupid.

    Wish I'd of held onto my Sylvia L1 my first LED though, still a cracking performer.


    * I only use torches and modify abit to improve them *

    Yes it is the only way forward .
    I usually have a few to loan out to folks who then never give them back
    so take beer tokens .

    Lol. Right on guys. So, where do I send the coupon for a case of your favorite beer in exchange for a set of used lights?

    I expect there will be a few people rehashing things when XP-G comes out.

    I'm happy if I can get my raw cost out of a light when I'm ready to move on to the next generation of LED's. Beer coupons and good karma are an added bonus.

    I don't give my lights to anyone, they are "my preciousss"!

    J/k, but really I don't know enough people would would want to mess with them given the unusual batteries and their expense. I don't drink much either, so beer tokens won't work for me. I have loaned them out though. As they pile up, it helps me understand the depths of my addiction to building them too, so that is a good thing.

    I give mine to friends... I wouldn't want to sell them either on a forum or to friends to avoid any obligations to fix the things if they break.
