Ok, it's been at least a year, if not more since P7 flashlights on the cheap hit Dealxtreme. 500+ lumens or some ridiculous number like that for $35 or so. I bought one, and it delivers the goods, for real. Everyone who gets a working one loves it.
So what's up with companies like Fenix NOT having P7 flashlights in stock? Seriously; if you go to the US-based tactical flashlight distributor websites, you won't see a single P7 flashlight there. You're pretty much stuck going Dealxtreme to get them - I don't have anything against Dealxtreme, but I would gladly pay even double the amount that they charge for a good quality-controlled distributor of P7 flashlights as have been done with Romisen, Terralux, etc.
Why aren't US flashlight entrepreneurs all over this one? It seems like a total no-brainer win solution for them. Corner the market instantly, make 100% profit if you're ordering in bulk and charging nearly double your wholesale price (probably $50-$60) and also profit off selling the chargers and batteries. All for a little QC and working with the distributor for returns. What am I missing?
