There's actually very few right-angle 1xAAA on the market, which makes this very cool.

If you mean the Olight 1xAAA that has been posted before, this is a better or more versatile light, but not as compact. It's about twice the price of course, but even at that I would consider it a bargain.
Right on queue....

They're having trouble with my order. I put my eircode in the box that required a post code. Somehow the website changed a "6" to a "^". Anyone else have this happen or is something peculiar to my setup?

I had my address (with Eircode) saved from a previous order so I can't shed any light on it.

Once the address is there in full i'm sure it'll get to you, the postal system will just ignore the malformed eircode. Or you could ask them to cancel and try the Paypal checkout ?

Got a dispatch email this morning and the site has a tracking number ending in GB. So normally coming from the UK it would get here pretty sharpish. Probably not at this time of year though.

I believe it is coming from China despite the GB origin code.

A Manker order for me a previous year took 2 & 1/2 weeks at a less busy time (and had GB tracking code also). I would expect it in January.

I bought a head torch today with two small hand torches and 9 batteries for 9.95. Thought it was very good value

Mine now showing up on the Royal Mail tracking website. Previously I had to use 4px to track it. So it's obviously just across the pond.
