Be very careful here - importing ONE set of lights will cost you a bunch!
Price of the lights, plus
currency conversion (as much as 7 to 10% - see what a great deal your local
friendly banker gives you on $500 worth of DM!)
airfreight, unless you want to wait 3 months or more, and have them arrive
smashed or simply disappear entirely
customs clearance fees from the customs broker (you'll be astonished! "Oh,
we have a $125 minimum fee on all shipments . . . "
Problems with US customs itself - these are NOT DOT approved lights and
Customs may decide that they are ILLEGAL to import, and either seize and
destroy them, or order them shipped back. . . . you lose either way.
In my direct, recent, personal experience, the only way to do this is to
import a bunch of them so you can split up the overhead among ten or twenty
sets, get ulcers getting them through customs, and then try to sell them,
one set at a time.
I did it, I ain't doing it again.
