Thorfire C8S facebook offer

I’m surprised no one posted about the offer from thorfireus coupon facebook page for the C8S. From the info provided it seems to be the newest version except it doesn’t have the ‘u shaped’ tail. At $8 each (including shipping) for US buyers it seemed like a good deal so I ordered two. I’m not a big fan of the C8 external design but since Thorfire is well respected and the price was good and payment via paypal I couldn’t pass on it.

Depends. Can’t find any mention of the CT/tint of the emitter, so might need to warm it up. Also dunno the driver, if it has any annoying strobe modes that are too easy to get to. Otherwise, I might just leave them as-is, give as gifts, whatever. Keeping at least a couple for myself, of course. Big Smile

They’re nice lights, regardless.

I should know more about this deal by the end of the week. The facebook post said internally they are the same as the newest version but nothing about color temp. The last message I received on sunday said shipping was arranged with amazon and I should receive them within 5 days which would be friday or saturday depending on actual shipping date. At $8 each via paypal I thought they worth taking the chance and worth a post.

No tint/color temp options. I asked. However… the TK18 is suppose to be getting an XPL HI option… or so I was told…

Either way, even if Angry Blue™, it’d make a Hell of a nice host.

And the price is just icing on the cake. Big Smile

Can never have to many c8s. I have a c8 army myself, with x6s in reserves. I like to make matching sets of c8s and x6s. I gave my dedoned xpg2 c8 away I have to replace that one whenever I can. But next in line is c8s with the sst40 and luxeon v leds.

Blf has changed a lot since I've been here. Lots of snow flakes and easily offended over nothing. When the forum use to be great and people joked around and could take a joke. It's a forum it's not that serious. Let's make BLF great again!

I sent an email and got a response wanting my Paypal account name along with my address for shipping. I am expecting an invoice on my Paypal account but I haven’t received one yet. Still waiting. I just ordered one off Amazon a few days ago and thought at that price I would pick up a few extras for gifts.

Ditto, except for the ordering-from-Amazon part.

I thought there’d be a code to order directly through Amazon, but the PP route works, too, I guess.

I used the facebook message route. Reply asking for paypal and info was quick (less than an hour). I also provided my blf member name. Invoice was also quick. Confirmation of shipping took longer. As I stated previously, I’m not a big fan of the c8 external design but buying two including shipping for less than the price of one at the normal amazon price was something I couldn’t pass on as was payment via paypal. Even as a host the price was too good to pass on given thorfire’s reputation and the q8 (ignoring the distribution and quirks with the first-run lights). I will be rebuilding one as a triple.

I'm in for two.

This will be my first foray into (relatively) high-performance lights, Maglights not withstanding. I figure a deal like this is exactly the kind of thing that lives up to the name of our forum, and is what attracted me here in the first place.

This will also be my first experience with LiIon cells. I'll be treading carefully as I research what cells are appropriate for the C8S. There is an Opus 3100 standing by for their care & feeding.

I'm one of the Luddite holdouts that doesn't have a fasebuuk presence. I'd like to thank tekwyzrd for posting the availability of this deal!

Great... Carnac the Magnificent tells me I just signed up for yet another expensive hobby.

They sent me an invoice this morning and I just got it paid for, just waiting for shipping confirmation. Along with slmjim, thank you tekwyzrd for the heads up. I am not on Facetube either so I would have never seen this.

Slmjim if you like that C8S check out the Sofirn C8F. You can pick it up at all the normal gettin places. Wicked nice and wicked bright. As for batteries, stick with something decent. I just so happen to use the Samsung 30Q’s, LG VJ1’s or the Sony VT6’s. All will be great batteries and power just about anything you need. https://www.imrbatteries.com/

Wellp, Mags are beautiful lights, but hardly hi-po. Big Smile

They make nice hosts, though.

30Qs are ubiquitous and should do fine in these.

When my lights do arrive one will definitely become a triple. Ordered the noctigon xp32 mcpcb with 3x nichia 90+ cri 5000k 219c and ledil cute triple from mtn. kiba-ru doesn’t have the spacers on his parts thread so I’ll have to make one. Driver will be the 8 – 12a ld-a4 originally intended for my astrolux s41.

Hey, how are we supposed to get shipping/tracking info? Email? Amazon? Other?

Anyone know?
