    Seems like the warm white version is available again at Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/Small-Package-...dp/B002C5BXGQ/

    Still quite expensive, but definitely good news.

    eToolscity is the only importer of the warm white version to the United States I know of.

    I'm considering the Favourlight LTC-1613AA-W. I was concerned about one review on amazon that stated the light only got 6 hours on high and ~10 hours on low, using eneloop batteries. Has anyone done a runtime on these?

    I just got a LTC-1613AA-W from Amazon. What's the drain of the flashing green indicator?

    @TyJo, I've never performed a runtime test on mine, but I would bet there is one out there. If I find one, I'll add it to the thread. Feel free to post a link if you find one, and I'll add it to the top.

    @ToddC, the flashing green indicator has a very, very small drain. I wouldn't worry about it. Someone posted the spec somewhere on this forum. I'll try and dig it up.

    They appear to be available here:
    http://www.cdnninvestments.com/specials.html

    http://www.cdnninvestments.com/blxrcrledcal.html

    Price is $19.99 each with $5 flat rate shipping no matter how many you buy. That appears to be the best current pricing on these. I scored one for $9.99 two years ago at target on clearance and I've always been impressed by it. SO, two more are on the way for power outage use.

    Back from a deliberate four month leave of absence.

    warm light, I just read your PM. I took the liberty of contacting one of the dealers for you, and asked whether they would be willing to ship to the EU/UK. He said sure, and he enabled the international shipping option in the e-Bay auction. So, for those of you in Europe who really want these in "AA" warm white, now is your chance.

    Here is the obligatory "No affiliation with seller" statement. So, while it was my query on behalf of warm light that triggered the seller to enable the international shipping options, I am most certainly not him.

    For those interested, go to e-Bay and search "Cree XLamp Warm White Camping LED" and it will come right up, along with international shipping options.

    Enjoy!

    So....I ordered it from toolcity, who now ship to the EU. I was even willing, after all this time, to stump up the rather excessive $25 postage! but then yesterday it arrived and the postman wanted €109 tax and import charges! I refused so it will be sent back to toolscity.

    I am NEVER going to get hold of this bloody lamp! (I feel like that bad guy in Aladdin.)

    Can the blinking green LED on these lanterns be disabled?

    In a thread on the Rayovac Sportsman SE3DLN, a procedure was described involving removing the case and breaking off the LED by repeated flexing of the leads. Is there a process to do something similar (or even reverseable) on this lantern?

    I'm really interested in this product, but unnecessary blinking lights and battery drain bug me. Sorry if this has already been covered. Thanks.

    Partially unscrew the bottom lantern cover with the lantern on:

    When the bottom cover is unscrewed just enough, you will stop the flow of current, simultaneously stopping the LED from blinking
    and also preventing accidental turn on.

    If you rotate just enough to turn the lantern off when on, the bottom cover will not fall off by accident.

    Thanks for the hint about partially unscrewing the base. However, I would really like to have a less bothersome way of permanently disabling the blinker. Does anyone know if these lights can be disassembled so I could deal with that pesky blinker once and for all?

    They can be disassembled.

    I don't have pictures handy, though.

    I'll poke around at some point—if anyone else has photos of the guts, they are welcome in this thread.
