Re: Nitecore TUBE - a brief overview.

I think you would have had to be super quick to take advantage of the intro deal - the 100 or so on offer went pretty quickly. Fasttech have them for $8.45 each ($7.73 if you want 5 or more). Trouble is, they don't seem to ship things with batteries these days - certainly not to the UK - not sure about Oz.
Most package services will only ship batteries inside devices. If in doubt, check with whatever company is going to ship your package.

FedEx shipped me some 18650s "inside" a VP2. ;)

Re: Nitecore TUBE - a brief overview.

Banggood has the Tubes for $6.99 each, or $6.54 in quantities of 3 or more. They do free ship to USA, not sure about OZ.

Thanks I like Banggood.
My last light from them showed up in just 10 days.
I didn't order the $5 Tube because of the shipping cost.
You have to have $20 order to get the free tracking.

Edit: This is a 2 day flash sale.

I love mine. Very handy. My only complaint it's that it didn't come with a key chain clip.

Re: Nitecore TUBE - a brief overview.

That's funny, as I looked at your link and AU price is $8.21 for a single, or $7.81 from 3-10. You might want to look at that again.

The price has now changed, I also see $8.21

Thanks Norm

Yes we often get ripped off.

1.00 AUD = 0.989706 CAD

1.00 CAD = 1.01040 AUD

For the price, I might expect a cable, but not an adapter. Many decent USB adapters cost this much or more by themselves.

Don't your phones have a cord which is compatible?

I started wondering if I have misunderstood something.

I was wondering about that too because I use my phone or Kindle adaptors.

The Apple iPhone is one of the more popular smart phones in the US and while it uses USB charging, my understanding is that the packed-in cable only has Apple's proprietary Lightning connector ... thus it's plausible that many will not necessarily have a micro-USB cable on-hand.

Of course I forgot Apple! I heard from a roommate that EU demands phones to use microUSB charger but it seems he had misunderstood it:http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_external_power_supply So it is only a recommendation and Apple is not using this specification. Anyway, I know that friends that I ordered Tubes for have microUSB charger.

But since the cable is integral to the Apple charger, supplying a micro USB cable with the Tube still wouldn't accomplish anything.
