    Nitefighter group buys

    Alright everyone its time.



    Lets keep this thread to interest in group buy only, discussions on each light in their appropriate threads.



    Bt21 here: http://forums.mtbr.com/lights-night-...ht-965949.html



    Bt40s here: http://forums.mtbr.com/lights-night-...ew-963636.html



    Here is the BT21 situation: Supplier is being difficult on BT21 pricing. I can only guess its do to how much interest we have expressed for it, so they know we will pay for it. I am working on it.



    Bt21: Head and kit with battery available, either one.



    -light head: $32.29. Coupons code bt21tg



    Nitefighter BT21 1800LM 2 LEDs Cree XM L2 Water-resistant Mountain Bike Lights-36.83 and Free Shipping| GearBest.com



    -Bt21 w/battery: $59.99 coupon code bt218tg



    Nitefighter BT21 1800LM Cree XM L2 2 LEDs Water-resistant Mountain Bike Lights-67.90 and Free Shipping| GearBest.com



    Bt40s: Kit (lighthead battery pack etc) is huge discount. Lighthead only now confirmed.



    Prices Set:



    -bt40s kit w/battery: $50



    COUPON CODE: NBT40TG



    Nitefighter BT40S Cree XP-G2 1600lm LED Bike Light Mini Neutral White Mountain Bicycle Headlamp-57.12 and Free Shipping| GearBest.com



    -bt40s lighthead only: $25



    COUPON CODE: BT4STG



    Nitefighter BT40S Cree XP-G2 1600lm Neutral White LED Bicycle Light Bike Headlamp-28.90 and Free Shipping| GearBest.com



    Update: Not only will light heads be available separately, since nitefighter packs are far better than normal cheap china packs, they'd make a good option, so if anyone is interested. Good budget friendly battery packs.



    Update: Prices updated and set, codes going out.



    And standard GearBest free (or pay for faster) shipping options. World wide.



    This is not pay in advance or commitment, if your interested, post up what your wanting. Then when I have prices I will post and pm with coupon codes to order.



    Please post which light and specify Kit or Light Head only for each. I am keeping a spreadsheet in order of posts. I am kept up to date on what gearbest has on order/in stock so if you havent received your code yet its because your name is on "next batch". If you would like it to place your order and wait, PM me and I will reply with coupon code (s).



    Also, due to gearbest system set up, it doesnt currently accept multiple coupon use per order. So at this time, if you order 2 lights, it will have to be 2 separate orders for example. (I am working on figuring out how to fix this issue, I know it will become a big headache for all of you)



    And I'll start: BT21 lighthead only (since I have sample kit on the way)

    What about BT70? That looks like a sweet light, but perhaps too expensive?

    Also, what do we know about the internal construction of the BT21? If Nitefighter are charging a similar amount as Yinding then I feel they need to compete on build quality with a properly designed heat sinking path for the LEDs. I bought and recommended the Yindings to friends primarily because of this.

    If you're talking about the bt40s, I'm definitely interested in the set. If the price was right, i'd buy it right now.

    I'm interested in the bt21, but still on the fence. There just isn't as much hard info about it right now (brightness, beam pattern, build quality, etc). If all that checked out, i'd be interested in a kit.

    Bt70 not released yet.


    And please keep posts like this in bt21 thread. This thread needs to be for "what you want" only so I can keep track. My bt21 for review is in the way, but build quality of nitefighter lights is already proven via the bt40. Above and beyond even the new yinding. And price not set yet, its determined by how many people we get on the group buy.


    @warthog: I'm not going to hunt you down if you decide against it after review, this is "what you want" no up front payment no worries. Its so we know what GB needs to order and what prices will be. Those that post when prices set will get the coupon codes when they are given to me. Then you place your order for what u want.

    @Tigris99: Do I get this right, with this thread you want to check the demand that exists for these two lights. Afterwards you will send coupon codes to those that joined this thread? Can I join in this group buy even when I live in Europe? I assume the lights will be sent directly from China to respective buyer and not first to you and from your place to us?

    Thans in advance.

    Cheers

    No, lights are on the way to gearbest. This thread is a "sign up sheet". The interest part is the more people want the bt21, the better the price for it can get.

    Bt40 price is set already for the kit.

    You are correct, only thing being shipped to me are my lights, these will ship directly, free shipping, from china to anywhere in the world.

    Bt21 will take a little bit, price currently is posted but we have to reach so many people for group buy to get it. Partially because not fair to stop group buy before I get mine to do review for those that are unsure.



    Hopefully end of next week at the latest, well see though.

    Bt40s prices are listed already, have codes by end of week.

    tigris, tell GB to fix the ad copy on the BT40S complete package. Still says

    Powered by four BAK 18650 rechargeable Li-on batteries, 7.4V 5200mAh( not included )

    although Package Contents lists everything. Page is live and they are taking orders, so this discrepancy really needs to be be addressed.

    Also, once the details are worked out, you might want to post something about this on Bike Forums, under

    Electronics, Lighting, & Gadgets

    One BT21 lighthead only pending your review is acceptable.

    If anyone looking to get into night riding is reading this and on the fence, you WILL NOT find a better setup for the price than the nitefighter kits. The included batteries, chargers and accessories are top notch. The lightheads are a few steps beyond what has been available in the price range until recently

    manbeer makes a good point. The lowest you will find for just a quality 5200mAh battery pack and comparable charger will set you back $67-$70. You'd be paying less than that here for the FULL KIT be like getting the lamp head, extension cable, head/helmet mount and, in the case of the BT40S, extra wide angle lens, thrown in for free. Really you're not going to find a better deal anywhere else for such a high quality package, assuming the BT21 is as good as the BT40S (might even be better, if that's at all possible!)

    And for those who do already own decent battery systems but have not yet experienced the newer generation of Neutral White Cree XM-L2/XP-G2, this is the best opportunity to pick up fantastic lamp heads at rock bottom prices.

    Don't want to sound like a shill for Nightfighter but having owned the BT40S kit for a while now as well as the NW Yinding, SS X3, and KD 880 clones in addition to a variety of CW lamps, am really appreciating what this company has to offer, hoping many others will get to enjoy the same benefits.

    Ok all of you posting up:

    Bt40s kits and lightheads arriving by end of week, will have codes for first batch tonight.

    This is first batch order, so limited number (think posts up till now all covered with a few to spare). But second batch will only be a few days behind it and so on.

    Everyone has plenty of time to jump in this so no worries, my sample for bt21 ships tomorrow hopefully so I should have Monday or Tuesday.

    Organized a small group of buddies here in Ottawa:

    6x BT40s kits please

    Timing not an issue for us - we can be 2nd (or later) batch, no problem.

    Thanks for organizing!

    Alright guys codes going out and bt21 prices updated.


    Edit: As of this post, everyone should have the coupon codes to place their orders. I believe all BT40s kits claimed are already in stock for orders this far. And I know more are on the way.

    I expected that for those that want bt21. But I wanted to make sure everyone has the coupons codes since many want bt40s as well.

    Is it too late to get added to the party?

    Was interested in the bt21 lighthead or kit but was waiting to see a ballpark price before expressing interest.

    Bt21s are on the way to gearbest, not in stock yet so probably be a few days before they even get to a point of shipping them out.

    Well they have 3 options for shipping. The first is free and results vary, mine wasn't bad at 2 weeks but it's been longer for some. The second is a bit more I think in my case 5 dollars for the light head and the estimate is 6-8 days. Then the other was 4-7 days but for 12 bucks I wasnt going for it. This is only my second time ordering from them

    I'm considering buying the BT21 so I can test it with the BT40S. Not that I need another lamp but since the Nitefighter people were nice enough to let me test the 40S I thought I would see how a NF combo works together. Quite possible that if the BT21 has enough throw that the two bought together would make a nice package deal. I look forward to the discount codes.

    In the message I sent it explains you can only use one coupon code at a time, so different items (bt21 light head and bt40 lighthead on the same order for instance) wont work. I'll be home shortly so ill check the code make sure its working on its own (I may have typed it wrong possibly). Thnx.



    Edit: Just tried it, not working for me either have it fixed momentarily, ill resend the bt40s lighthead code if its different.

    For everyone that needs it, remove the "0" from the bt40s lighthead only code and it works.

    Thanks tigris99 for all your hard work getting this up for everyone.
    Looks good enough to make me finally carry a spare light.
    Please put me down for one BT21 FULL KIT and one BT21 Light Head only.

    Thanks,
    Bob.

    tigress99; Thanks for the codes. One BT21 has been ordered. I only ordered the lamp but knowing how well the battery works I was tempted to buy the full kit. Since I already have a good number of very good batteries I should be fine. To anyone else who might not have a lot of batteries I fully recommend getting the full kit ( with battery ).

    EVERYONE, EVERYTHING IS PRETTY MUCH IN STOCK OR ARRIVED AND BEING ENTERED INTO INVENTORY NOW! Yes this includes bt21s!

    Those waiting for codes:

    Bt40s codes will be on OP shortly, no more waiting for me on those. Bt21 is still "by request" but in stock and will start shipping out over the next day or so for those that have already ordered them.

    Still awaiting review, but I think I may just order from Nitefighter direct via Ebay when the time comes to avoid Gearbest's shipping issues and due to that fact that the GroupBuy price is hardly any different! My BT40s bought from Ebay came very quickly.

    Bt40s codes will be on OP shortly, no more waiting for me on those. Bt21 is still "by request" but in stock and will start shipping out over the next day or so for those that have already ordered them.
    Yea what does OP mean? Sorry for having to ask haha.

    That was my fault, remove the "s" fixed on the OP as well.

    I just checked their store, if you look at prices on the original post, bt40 kit alone is $20 cheaper than nitefighter store, bt21 lighthead is a dollar cheaper etc, where did you find prices cheaper than the group buy prices (the prices on gearbest site are not the prices we are getting these for, the correct pricing for the group buy is on the op)

    Well, I have one kit so I do not need more kits, but I bought additional light heads, 2 pcs, each for 16.65$ average and I have 2S4P battery pack with 8 NCR18650B cells on the way (got that for 20$)...

    Sirius, please let me know where I can find similar battery, even at a higher price. I'd love an 8 cell pack

    I let this one go last night -> 1600 Lumen Bicycle Light Front Bike Light Light Head Only with O Rings | eBay

    but purchased:
    1600 Lumens Water Resistant LED Front Bike Light Light Head Only with O Rings | eBay
    and
    1600 Lumen Bicycle Light Light Head Only with O Rings MagicShine | eBay
    and
    CREE XM L2 1200 Lumens LED Bike Light Headlight Light Head Only with O Rings | eBay
    (this one will be (I hope) fitted with MT-G2 since BT40S unfortunately is not long enough to fit MT-G2 TIR optics that I have...

    (Hope this links are not against rules or something, if they are I will remove them ASAP)

    Sirius, any idea if that single emitter is neutral white? It's the only one I've seen from them that doesn't specifically mention being NW

    Not sure, but, guess some of you may not be happy with this, I actually prefer CW tint. I like CW and I like WW but not that much NW. One of my crazy plans was to replace NW XP-G2 emitters from BT40S with 4 x CW XP-Ls but that may end up costing 20+$ in emitters only and I am not sure if I want to throw that cash just to play...

    Well if you really just want CW emitters you could just buy a MagicShine 872. The 872 is virtually the same lamp as the BT40S only with CW XP-G. It uses CW XP-G ( not G2 )...but for CW there are tons of lamps ( both China-cheap or better quality ) offering better beam patterns and/or output.

    On a side note, I have an XP-L torch and a torch with XP-G2. I don't think the optics for XP-G2 are going to be compatible with XP-L without major modding. Not that it can't be done but it wouldn't be easy. I think you'd be better just buying a lamp using CW XM-L2 U2.

    I just tried checking the group buy price on the bt21 full kit. The coupon applies, but it raises the price and the coupon discount brings it back down to the same regular price. What's up with that?

    Ok some one over there messed with the site pricing. Site is not supposed to be set at the group buy price. I'll let them know. But price on the page is group buy price anyway so have at it.

    Usually about 2 weeks, worst ive had was 3 but that's after you receive tracking not after u place your order (if you ordered before in stock then obviously takes longer)

    Ok now that first light heads only of the bt21 are arriving, the extra cost makes sense:

    Its literally everything except the case, battery, and charger. So bands, extension cable, helmet strap, Velcro, etc.

    My BT40S kit arrived today in Atlanta. Order date was 5/22 so exactly 2 weeks from order to delivery.

    Everything looks good!

    I would just check your tracking, depending on method you choose it can take up to a month to get your order, which is why I usually try to opt for better shipping options.

    figured the group buy was long over, but just wanted to report that I tried the coupon code posted in the first thread on a BT21 kit. Knocked $2 off the price. Better than nothin! Thanks tigris
