    Oh willydigger, just wait and watch over the next 3 months or so. My budding Ti disease may rival Alox-Pox.

    So what color do you glow now? :rofl:

    Keychains are pretty brutal in general. My bro has his 40DD on a keychain but it's just 2 keys (car and house). I wear mine as a pendant.

    The trit vials are pretty tough at least in my experience. They are definitely not invincible.

    UPDATE FOR BROTHER STAX!:
    I have not forgotten you! I got my pricing reply from Ku and just sent him PP for the vials. As soon as I get them and get to install them, the Norland Adhesive will be on its way to you.

    I don't think where they were made is so important as how well they were. Unless you were just referring to how long it takes to get here. Mine wasn't LAPoliceGear" long, wasn't even "County Comm" long. ;)

    My understanding is Steve Ku is from Taiwan. Think of it as basically getting a custom light for $60 ;)

    Mine shipped from Taiwan.

    From illuminationsupply.com:
    Please note that due to recent USPS regulations regarding Li-ion batteries, international customers will have their shipments dispatched from Taiwan. This should not change delivery speed and may even expedite it.

    I don't know for the UK, but it can't be to different from shipping to Hungary. It really depends on if the taiwanese partner of illuminationsupply has them on stock. If not, it can take while till they have them again and in this case it can be a couple of weeks. I think mine took about three weeks from ordering.

    Yeah, I'm about a month out of just getting one now. Don't think I'm ever gonna score a TiFli or Drake for as good a price, or at all.

    Mine took 3 weeks or so to get to the UK. When it had not been shipped after a week I emailed and was told they were waiting on stock. You could email them and see if they have stock beforehand.

    My Quantam DD arrived today, so just had to wait a while ;). I think we are a bit spoilt now a days being able to get things instantly due to the internet and have lost the art of being patient :D.
