It is actually constant brightness regulated...
You should have jumped on FB groupbuy, E14III and MC13 combo...

Manker is still offering (to other forum members) the EDC Muscle Combo.. Question is do they still have the exclusive printing that makes that set unique?

id30209,, Did you get in on that GB?

I dumped FB earlier in the year :ohgeez:

I hope the GB holds another two weeks and two days until I am paid.

If anyone wants to front me for a couple weeks, and hang onto the package until I pay, including extra ship, PM me. (How pathetic is this.)

I did email Martin a few days ago. He said I "might get lucky."

I apologize for embarrassing myself. I am not all that emotionally invested in this. It is a pretty darned good deal. But the E14III will still be available at a good price, and the MC13, too, if I miss the Muscle Combo. I won't even shake a fist, not even a tiny one. I guess I am just excited at what a good deal it is. Sorry again.

Yes, no worries. Many of us have been in that position...

I hope everyone circles back to this thread when the lights come in. Very curious to see the CPF critical reviews of this new Manker update.

I ordered Thrower with Osram Green + Flood NW + went ahead for few more ducats got the USB-C Bats
This combo should make a great vehicle emergency light. Plus can't beat the price!

I was notified by Martin many more than the initial 75 units were produced for forum sales.. So no worries Chillinn there will be plenty to be had when you're flush :)

Admiring your badge of courage, little bite in the bezel. Rubber ring is a good idea... two would have been a better idea. I have trembling hands, so sometimes when I pick something up, I fumble it, down it goes. I'm going to remember the idea of installing training wheels for a while on new lights, because usually, I only drop things in the first few weeks of ownership.

Ok eagle-eye... You saw my ding. I use all my stuff hard - a collector I’m not. However, I don’t abuse.

Been carrying two new lights, SC5c II a month old, SC53c a week old... both have head bites already. Forgot the SC5c II was in my lap when I got out of the car, landed on concrete. Fumbled the SC53c when picking it up, fell on vinyl covered concrete, ding not as bad as on the SC5c II, but still. I'll be eventually replacing and gifting them both, and I feel guilty about that, but... some Ricky Nelson lyrics, you know? And I really hate concrete. Not the first two times concrete has attacked my lights. Once, same situation as the car lap, forgot it was there, bounced on driveway black top, did this 3 times in a row within 10 minutes, 3rd time cracked the threads of my fivemega 18350 E head E tail. I guess that is not concrete. Similar thing, road surface-like.

I can relate. When they’re not on the shelf and out in the field, they get bites. Just like me. I spent 40 years in the field on construction sites and wore out many steel-toed boots, gloves and pocket knives - especially knives. Lights took a hit but never lost but one - it was overrun by a CAT 966 loader in a gravel pit. Fortunately it was an early Maglite and not something I felt any fondness for.

Specs on this Manker look great. Price is not bad at all for those features. Considering.
