Will the original BLF Q8 return to banggood?

Hello guys. I own one original (not sofirn) BLF Q8 light and use it on my bike (for forest rides). Its my favourite and most versatile flashlight. It has the perfect combination of throw and flood (you guys did amazing job designing it). But its now unavailable on banggood, will it return there? I kind of want to buy few more for family members. Is it still in production?

10.10.2019 Edit: its available again

Thx, not at bad price, but BG sometimes had them for 39.99$. Now that was a great bargain!

Use the blfq8 as my work light in construction and it takes a beating.  My most used light.

I use Honey browser extension to be notified of price drops and it also automatically applies available coupons at checkout. Might be good to put the Q8 on the roster .

I’ve seen (and bought) them on ebay in the $40 to $50 range, brand new. Some ship from China, others from USA. Better than getting banged good IMO.

Is this model on the Sofirn AliExpress store close enough?

The Sofirn Q8 uses XP-L Hi at 6500K, which gives it a much different beam imo.

I’m surprised the cheaper crappy clones have not hit the market yet. Silly
