Olight - H1 Nova headlamp/kit
Niwalker 600N1 - single 18650 with tail switch and infinitely variable control ring

Pics to follow!

Nice to see some of the new boxes arrived.

Some of the surprises include a couple of lights with optional aspheric heads (I see aginthelaw got one), some rechargeable options (like DMS1970's S10R), and some boxes have newer lights that I never got around to reviewing (like the Olight H1 Nova headlamp kit).

If you don't wind up keeping the Olight H1, PM me if you'd like to trade a light i got to try something different.

If you slowed down on the drinking...

Tough decision i see you have: should i sample some Pappy’s old Kentucky or turn on a light. I’m feeling the stress already...my bottles empty

Yeah, it's a diving light (hence the bomb-proof design). The magnetic switch is required, as you can't have the pressure change of a physical switch. Also means you can change modes with a strong enough magnet around. ;)

If you slowed down on the drinking...
Yes, I was "drowning" in lights toward the end, lol.

Some photo documentation of my box! Thanks again Selfbuilt for the really fun experience! Love a few and kind of curious to trade a few. The Catapult and the MVP specifically. (Also wow Photobucket it has been years since I've used you and don't recall that annoying watermark lol)

Wow that MVP is a monster! Looked up the review on that one and its a very versatile light!

It has a pretty interesting UI with the mechanical switch up top and the clicky at the back end. The three beams converge into a pretty nice hotspot/spill overall too. The build quality is darn impressive as well!

Enjoy! You know, I think that was the first multi emitter light I reviewed (or at least the first with independent reflector wells). I too was surprised at how well the beam coalesced. Out of date for output, but a very solid build - and unusual interface, as you noted.

Last of the boxes went out today, looking forward to seeing more unboxings.

Got the second round medium quality box of lights today. Inside were the following lights:
Crelant 7G5 (with the additional Collimeter Head)
Olight M1X
L3 Illumination X40
Olight S10 Baton
Fenix LD02
Romisen RC-M4

haven't got to run thru all of them yet, but i have messed with the M1X, and the Creelant 7G5 a little...i love throwers...

Yeah, the M1X is a nice light. And that Crelant 7G5 has the largest aspheric/collimator head I've ever seen. It's a pretty unique experience! Glad you are happy with the throwers - but the X40 has a nice interface and recharging feature for a high-output light.

I see most of the packages have been delivered - although USPS royally screwed up on one poor California-bound package (spent 4 days bopping around distribution centres in North Carolina, for no apparent reason). It is now back in Illinois (where all US-bound parcels from here tend to begin, including this one). So a full week later it's back where it began, hopefully properly en route now.

That one box that got lost in the mail was just returned to me. Seller asked for a refund, so that means I have one more box to sell if anyone wants it. Happy to let it go for $85 USD - offer open to everyone, even if they previously bought a box. As always, first "I'll take it post" in the sales thread gets it - but please confirm with me before sending Paypal. Thanks!

EDIT: Sold!
