Just saw this posted by Andybibbville in the main Deal Alerts thread.  $47 for a MF01 clone or something.  Since no discussion is allowed in that thread, thought I would open it up for discussion here.  Have no idea if it is legit.

It looks like most of the Thorfire lights on Amazon are available with some sort of discount or coupon deal right now.

It looks like the seller of that MF01-like light recently started selling an S41-like light too. Also, they were selling an S42-like light recently, but the listing now shows the light is unavailable right now because Amazon pulled the listing due to poor customer feedback. From the handfull of reviews, it looks like some people got lights that were DOA and/or didn’t match the listing.

On the other hand it’s $47, with Prime next day shipping, so you’ll know quickly… I was a long way from spending $50 on a light, but I’m tempted…

What do you search for to find them once they return?

Got the 911-L1 today.  As others have reported in freeme's Group Buy thread, it seems to be the real deal.  The reason I'm posting about it here and not in freeme's thread is that it seems kind of rude to discuss a competing deal in a group buy thread.  I have nothing against freeme or his group buy.  He's a great member and offers great deals.

The light seems to be every bit as high quality as the MF01 I purchased from joker145.  I haven't measured lumens yet because the light doesn't fit my integrating tube.  It's got the 2 LED leads that the second version has.  The bezel may be thread locked.  I couldn't get it open with 2 strap wretches, but it's late and I'm tired.

As l have posted in another thread about the 911, l chatted with a friend in Mateminco (the makers of the Astrolux MF series) and he confirms that they made it at the request of a businessman who has an Amazon store. He purposely lost money on the the first few deals in exchange for maximum exposure of his store.

That’s why it’s as good as the Matemincos.

Not sure if this is good deal for a modable host/flashlight, but
Today they have Anker LC40

price is 15.99

The Bad:
Battery is not removable
Modes are H/M/L/blink/SOS/

Good:
From reviews on BLF, seems like it used to be a AAA light, now “built-in 3350mAh rechargeable battery”
-LED is XP-G2
- IP65-rated, don’t see many lights with this rating.

What is the link? IP65 is good for a camera, but not what I want to see for a flashlight.

Quote:
IP65 Enclosure – IP rated as “dust tight” and protected against water projected from a nozzle. IP66 Enclosure – IP rated as “dust tight” and protected against heavy seas or powerful jets of water. IP 67 Enclosures – IP rated as “dust tight” and protected against immersion.

The low mode should be lower.

The old version was quite different indeed. I have one. It can run on 3xAAA or an 18650. It’s actually a pretty decent light for $10 that I paid for it, but $10 will also get you a Convoy s2+ which is even better.

Here is the link to the old LC40: http://a.co/aJViKNi

Too bad I just got 2 from GB for 20bux a pop, or I’d get a couple. Flat Stare

Sorry, unfortunately it looks like the deal has already expired. I posted right after I found out about the deal and bought one. They must have sold out quickly.

Still comes up for me. I just searched “Eneloop” and the deal is the second item in the results list.

Geez – if I only had a use for that many AAs. I just bought 4x Eneloop Pro cells.

Also – LOL at the $47 Astrolux MF01 clone – it’s now over $100! I just wonder what kind of moron is buying these at the higher cost to keep driving up the price.

Yup, sure enough that’s it. Not sure why I couldn’t find it when I went back and checked.

I dunno. Morons who realize that there is a 20% discount applied at checkout?

That’s still over $80 – for a knockoff light where the original costs $77.

1. It isn’t a knockoff. Same light, same manufacturer, different branding.
2. $77.99 for the MF01 is a sale price (through 4/4).
3. For $77.99, you get it shipped from China in ~2 weeks, rather than the US in 2 days.

UI is unfortunately not what I care for and they hide it in double-talk “Hold the On/Off button for one second to instantly turn off light.”. Sorry is it one second or instantly…. it can’t be both… and unfortunately it’s clear it is one second hold, and not instant as a click just sequences the mode. UI failure for me, but someone must be buying this type of UI as they are not the first to adopt this disaster Smile

USB Rechargeable Zoomie Thorfire CT10 with Ramping UI for $8.90. Doesn’t mention anything about emitter. This reminds me of the light in the thread called Review:No name USB charging nice quality flashlight but this is a zoomie.
Similar light here at Ali: SKYWOLFEYE L207
And here at Bangood: XANES 1302
I don’t know anything about it, just thought I’d share here.
Amazon Link Thorfire CT10

The seller is “ThorFire & More,” same as most of the thorfire branded lights there. It looks to me like this light is “& More,” rather than ThorFire.
