After performing this search, you don’t get any filters except “Department,” unfortunately.

However, if you then click on one of those departments (Sports & Outdoors seems to be the best choice), it then gives you Amazon’s regular filters, such as brand and price.

You are looking in the wrong area. Select the drop down menu directly left from the search bar, where it says “All” and you can not be on the mobile version.

I ordered a Rofis R1 for $35. I’d been waiting for a sale on these.

Not sure I’m liking the power button facing your forehead in the headlamp mount, seems odd.

$25 26650 zoomy with dual output powerbank and built in cell phone holder.

I know it’s gonna be disappointing, but I might just have to get one to play with.

I don’t like that either, but I like most of the other features well enough to give the R1 a try at this price.

I haven’t identified a different adjustable angle light that I think is designed better. I’ll use it mostly as an EDC without the head strap, anyway.

Nicron

“Anybody have experience with the nicron adjustable angle head flashlight? On sale for $10, has tail magnet but not a headlamp kit.”

Nicron

I’ve had that one for ~ 6 months. Great little AA/14500 light. Good build quality. 600 lumens on a 14500. Samsung led with nice neutral tint. Hidden strobe/sos so it’s ‘hi lo off’ in that order. Unscrew tail cap for lockout. Strong magnet. Glad I bought it…

Other than 600 lumens, I can’t find any output numbers for the Nicron N7 light yet. Anyone know the hi low numbers on 14500 and eneloop?

I grabbed some screenshots of the manual from a YouTube review:

They only specify AA, so I’d assume they’re measuring with alkaleaks. Silly

On the topic of using the N7 as a headlamp, I’ve found that the headband with the Sofirn SP40 (which is extremely tight on an 18650 tube) fits the N7 just perfectly.
So if you’ve got that light lying around, or are able to order the headband separately from Sofirn, then your N7 can be a nice budget AA headlamp.

Thanks goshdogit, looks reasonable for a non-moonlight low. Between that and the fact the SP40 band works well with it, I may give it a go. Thumbs Up

pretty classic marketing on this. I found the review goshdogit linked to, and the reviewer comments about getting it for $13.99 on Amazon, which is the current “sale” price. Of cource you save another $4.20 with prime, making it a decent deal, but not the barn burner I originally thought. Still going to pick one up.

Also interesting the reviewer commented the light had better run times on the 14500. The manual disagrees, and I suspect with an eneloop the run time will better, albeit not as bright. 250 lumen and 40 lumen sounds good to me.

$13.99 is the normal price at Amazon. It was $9.79 during the Prime Day sale. I ordered one just because it was so cheap Cash

Rovyvon Aurora A1 $21.50 lightning deal right now, lots of Lumintops on sale, got a AA Tool 2.0 for $11.38 + tax

Pretty happy with these 2, Aurora blows away Nitecore tip in output and is so much more compact, good accesorries package as well.

Tool 2.0 works really well & bright with NIMH, perfect beam, they tweaked it a lot from version 1, better tailcap, clip seems stronger, PWM is gone, length a little shorter, but crappier lanyard and packaging, still a great value at $12 from that deal.

I received my Rofis R1 today – I like it.

Nice UI and mode spacing.

Direct access to moonlight, memorized mode and turbo.

Pretty good beam pattern and tint.

Feels good in my hand.

Strong magnet.

Adjustable angle will come in handy.

66g with battery.

I think that 600 is a bit of a reach, I don’t see much difference from nimh and a 14500, for $10 it’s a decent light, I do notice it cuts out briefly when you attach the magnet to a surface or tap the bottom hard, I cant get it to do this by shaking it, so it only loses contact briefly on that type of impact, not too big of a deal tho. Could use a third brightness level but can’t complain too much for the price point.

Though it looks like they probably are only doing 1 coupon a day cause i think it ended right away

Yes you found me. I bought them but when I bought them, I don’t think it said Keenstone.
There was no brand name. Looks like now it has a brand name. Not sure what I’ll get.
It was too good of a deal to pass, 2 pack with batteries and charger.
I was looking for a charger and it was cheaper than buying a charger. Wink

If you are up to it unscrew some of it and take some pictures.

Do Prime deals block Vipon coupons from working?

I finally was able to use the 50% off coupon for the Rofis R2 even with the Prime sale of $38.97.

My total was $20.48 for 1. Sweet. I was expecting the $29.48 shown in Vipon.

I wonder how this light compares to the Nicron N7 for half the price?

Here’s the Vipon link for the Rofis R2.

Looks like it’s good for another 6 days.
