    Default LEDs for Mighty Mini Floods Group Buy

    I'm opening a new thread just to confirm orders for LEDs and terminal strips/resistors for building out the Mighty Mini Floods.

    Here is the current orders that I have confirmed:


    Al - 16 kits
    Denny - 4
    Jack - 4
    Mark - 4
    pmcpa - 6


    I made a command decision and have already ordered the resistors/terminal blocks for 30 kits, since I was placing an order with Mouser for other stuff.

    This group buy will close on April 4, and payment notifications will be sent out shortly after that.

    Current estimated price per kit is $34.50, but is subject to change, based on quantity and until the order is placed with the LED vendor.

    If anyone wants to get in on this, or change their order, please let me know in this thread.


    One more thing - if someone wants a fully assembled board with LEDs already done, I probably have a few extra PCBs coming in the mail. If you want to get in on this group buy for LEDs, and have me assemble and test it for you, I'm willing to do that for an extra fee, probably for about $10 per board. Please send me a Private Message here on ChristmasCarolina and we can talk....but you will need to purchase a kit as well as the PCB if you have not already done so.

    Please refer to the Group Buy rules in the main forum.

    This Group Buy includes the following per kit:

    16 RED 8mm StrawHat LEDs
    12 Green 8mm StrawHat LEDs
    12 Blue 8 mm StrawHat LEDs
    6 Warm White 8mm StrawHat LEDs
    6 Cool White 8mm StrawHat LEDs
    2 68 ohm 1W resistors
    2 56 ohm 1W resistors
    2 39 ohm 1W resistors
    2 47 ohm 1W resistors
    2 4pos terminal blocks

    If you purchase multiple kits, the correct number of LED's will be included and will be sorted by color, but not necessarily in single kit quantities.

    Price does not include shipping fees. I expect to get at least 5 kits into a small Priority Mail flat rate box. Anyone in the Raleigh or Charlotte area can get delivery at a regional event or by special arrangements.

    I've also posted a note on PlanetChristmas pointing them here if anyone else is interested in joining. Rules are the same. Price includes just the parts, and does not include shipping to you. I'll be sending out payment notices after Sunday, and will be placing the LED order later in the week.

    By posting here, you release ChristmasCarolina.com and any associated people from any liabilities, etc. You also are committing to purchase the items indicated in this group buy.

    Brightness is rated in candela. The specs are on each website.

    Randy,
    Based on the 20 that I purchased from Shop4LEDs, some of them may be a little brighter than CeCe. All the ones from S4L are 5 chip versions, while some of the ones from CeCe's were single chip (but larger), or 3 chip.

    I only purchased some red and warm white from S4L, but believe that they will be at least as bright and possibly brighter.

    I can no longer edit the first post, so here's the current orders:

    Al - 16 kits
    Denny - 4
    Jack - 4
    Mark - 4
    pmcpa - 6
    Erik - 4

    Total: 38

    This puts us close to the 40 kit pricing, which is better by far. Current estimate, including having to order more terminal strips, comes in around $32.50 per kit. Shipping to folks outside the Carolinas will be additional.

    I've been spending most of my time navigating through this site and I must say you guys are all right.

    Lock me in for FIVE (5) kits.

    Thanks

    OK, updated totals.

    Payment will be required before order is placed. Remember, folks that don't live in the Carolinas will be charged shipping fees in addition to the kit cost. unless they plan to attend a local meeting or the convention in August.

    Current orders:

    Al - 16 kits
    Denny - 4
    Jack - 6
    Mark - 4
    pmcpa - 6
    Erik - 4
    Dave H - 5

    This group guy is officially closed with a total of 45 kits.

    Doesn't look like the price will change much with the added 5 kits. The semi-final price of 32.50 a kit is based on purchasing a few extra LEDs of each color to have on hand in case a bad one sneaks thru. Also due to the ordering quantities it was easier to order 550 instead of 540 of a given color to have those few extra. I'm not ordering enough to include an extra of every color in every kit, or the price would go higher, but I will have a few extra of each color.

    I'm expecting that 5 or 6 kits will go in a flat rate Priority Mail box, so shipping should be $6-8 per order for those who are outside the Carolinas.

    Expect a PM in the next few days with payment info and my PayPal address.

    When sending a payment, please include how much you ordered, your ChristmasCarolina username, and your email.
