Looks a lot like the old (and new) 47’s ML light.

Seeking the light.

That short fat one is definitely cute.
18350 or 16340?
That MOQ though…
And they seem to be twisties, which is… hmmm…
…which is interesting for QTC dimming. Smile

Hey, I haven’t realized that. I wonder if it’s the OEM or a clone…
I’m in for 1 AA. Wink
Anyway, 600 pieces seems a lot for a BLF-only GB. But maybe it would be reasonable for someone like Astrolux?

BTW, they have also this:

I’d absolutely be in for those 47s Ti clones/oem hosts. They’ve always been the on my short list for best looking lights. Definitely a group buy I’d be excited about.

Thus looks like a magnetic ring rotary switch light. Beautiful. Too bad minimum 10 pieces to order.

Magnetic ring rotary switch on a titanium AAA light at that price? I just assumed it was a simple twisty light. On/off. Maybe high/low.

It says minimum order of 10 @35$... 

Maybe a GB?

But in details it’s shown something else :/

Purchases on alibaba.com need to bought with a single payment and a shipment of the entire lot to one address. Shipping costs are extra and the shipment will likely be charged import duty. Here in the US, a small shipment of a few items never has a tarriff collected but a large shipment will, as customs looks at it as a commercial order. I do not have any idea at what $ value tarriffs kick in or if there are other criteria considered as well.

I contacted tatasal with the hope that he could convince Banggood to stock them. I think it could be a win-win situation, 600 lights is probably too much for us but not for them.
The choice of tatasal might not have been perfect as he said he had just shallow BG contacts.

BTW, another host:

I wonder if it’s possible to swap the LEDs for the rngwn ones. Wink

AC input, USB input, built-in battery…not bad for a humble light bulb.

Very interesting concept, a single flashlight head that can be used as a handheld flashlight or as a headlamp.

seems first Chinese manufacture copies Aux boards
Its not patented or protected in any way, so nothing ESISAR or I can do about it
I am pretty sure its just LEDs and resistors controlled with MCU

not inspired they bought one had it precisely measured and 3D copied, likely PCBs are 1:1 copies as well
also disassembled an Emisar, Fireflies or Astrolux light as well for the Aux board research

I don’t want to call that a zoomie. More like adjustable beam similar to Maglite. Halogen bulb.

Some nice gear on that store too. I liked these, remind me of the Reylight Krystal a little bit, shame they don’t have aux leds A160
