    Right, presume down to the refector design of the newer 75, not enough room for larger die under it.

    Anyone have an ANSWER to this?

    It is impossible to talk to Amazon.

    I bought a $180 Flashlight for a host and they taxed it. I went to another buyer[Edison Bright] who also sells on Amazon, He sells it WITHOUT TAX!

    So I cancelled original Amazon on Bought off of Edison Bright!

    How can they have different policies with items STILL sold on Amazon?

    ,Thanks

    The HOST is the TK75 2015. I am not sure what happened but Fenix outfitters/store did/does not have them and I am scrambling to get the QUAD modded!

    First of all, I believe the Amazon items are taxed based on who is actually sending the item and where they are located. Sometimes Amazon sends directly and they will tax the item. Other times the vendor is sending the item, and if they're not in your state, there's usually no tax.

    As to Fenix, they have discontinued the old tk75 and are soon to come out with a new version. This is probably the reason you can't find them on the Fenix store.

    D1vn NEWS!!

    I just shipped out 10 D1vn last night. If you got one do not turn it on yet. For whatever reason this batch of LEDs cant take VTC5A. I will get back to this matter very soon!

    Thanks for the Amazon info.

    On October 9th Fenix Outfitters had 9 of the TK75 2015. At my suggestion V54 ordered some. I guess the inventory was wrong because he did not receive them.

    At that time Amazon had them for $199. Now they are $179 due to the release of the 2018 version.

    Amazon and one other vendor[sounds shaky] are the only ones to have them. Edison Bright NOW has 3 left and Amazon has 16.

    Update: Tested multiple fresh charged LG 3500mAh and the light operates 100%. Light is even about 50 lumen brighter...
    Please use LG 3500mAh! DO NOT USE VTC5A

    If you ordered VTC5A contact me and we will swap.

    It sounds like it ONLY pertains to "this batch of LED'S" for the D1vn. The VTC5A worked in my D1vn and I think would be fine in the other lights you mentioned and are concerned about.

    Obviously V54 will have to VERIFY.

    May I ask why?

    Iím not one of the ones that ordered it, but I generally care about all things battery related, especially safety, so Iím very curious.

    Vinh will know exactly, i would have thought the vtc5 allowing too much current to the LED and maybe over driving it with the emisar driver. Could be the specific batch of LED's rather than the actual LED in general. Dont recall any issue previous to this batch using the vtc5.

    Likely a tiny bit voltage spike just enough to kill the LED due to extra low internal resistance of the VTC5A cell.

    Amazon charges sales tax in states where they have a fulfillment center, distribution center, etc

    If you buy from a third party that is out of state, they will not charge you sales tax (you can still get prime shipping if its fulfilled by amazon, and avoid tax)

    And technically, you are supposed to declare all out of state purchases on your state income taxes at the end of the year... you know - because the government needs more money from you

    Hi guys,

    Most of you have seen me mention in my posts that I walk six brisk, hilly miles every day/night in my single-family residential neighborhood. I have had the same route for eighteen months, so I am a well known fixture of the route that I walk. Yesterday, I was charged by two dogs from very very short range. I had previously asked that homeowner to not allow her dogs off her property to charge at pedestrians on the street; I had also previously reported said home address to local police after scary charge from her dog. One of the dogs was a large dog that is on all lists of Dangerous Breeds. The other dog was a mix breed of possible dangerous listing. I had a fraction of a second to defend myself from a certain severe mauling, or worse. I will be busy for the next dew days or so dealing with some post-event wrap-up stuff.

    Thanks guys. By dint of several different synchronous miracles, I was able to successfully defend myself in the tenth of a second window that was available to me. I will be doing my walks, but in another neighborhood. Hilly, with awesome views, perfect high performance flashlight country.
