The final price is not set but think 50 dollar-ish, and ordering from Sofirn’s aliexpress site is usually with free shipping.

How did you get the 10% promotion ?????

It was hidden & I found it by accident. Big Smile . I scrolled down before I added the ECEEN Charger to my cart & clicked on something that said “Additional Offers” or something like that…. (& the 10% offer poped up).

I can’t remember for sure how what I clicked was ‘titled’ & I don’t see it on my screen now. That might be because I have already used it though.

But it was 10% off when buying one or more it said.

Just scroll down some & click around & see if you can find it. That’s all I know to tell you. Sorry I couldn’t be more help.

I ordered an ECEEN 10W Solar Charger from Amazon & it arrived today.

This is the one that has been mentioned in this thread & that DBSAR recommends.

I am more than pleased with it too so far. It is well made & nicely designed. I only had a chance to ‘try it out’ for a short time as it arrived late, but all indications are this will be very handy to have around. Thumbs Up

I got the Camo version, but it comes in Black also.

Thanks again for the recommendation DBSAR!! Beer

I have used mine day after day on my trips, left out in the rain, freezing cold in winter, etc. they have worked great for the good price and quality construction.

I have been watching these for awhile, a used one came up on ebay recently with make an offer. Between the offer and $3 off coupon just bought one for $19.19. Just in time for camping next week, just wishin’ I could use it to charge my BLF lantern. Oh well, I know its going to be the best one available when we get it.

That’s Funny! Somehow I knew I had 3 already and was looking for them but I didn’t see it. I’m going to need 5 anyways, Mom/dad want one, my uncle wants one, and my sister/her bf want one, my neighbor, and obviously myself…

So 5 is fine with me Smile

Same as the Q8, with the solid battery tube for 4 cells, ( no carrier)

I apologize for asking a question that may have been asked, if so please direct me to the correct post, thank you.

Will my BLF Q8 battery tube fit the LT1 head? (don’t feel like buying another set of 4 18650’s)

I’ve got a thrower, a flooder, and an EDC too. Still looking for a bigger thrower, flooder, and a new EDC, give or take a few. I’m a flashaholic.

The tube should fit the same, however…

…you don’t need the tube to fit in order to use the same cells in both lights. Any button top 18650 cells will fit in either light just fine! Party

Cool.. thanks DavidEF,

I really meant that if I can hot swap the battery tube with batteries from the Q8 then all the better so I don’t need to get another 4 batteries since I’ll rarely use both at the same time (hopefully that made sense). Or split the 4 batteries between the 2 lights for those times when the power goes out. All good…

@ LightUpTheDark
If your not going to use them at the same time, why not just swap the four batteries back & forth as needed??

The lantern can run on four, three, two or just one 18650, and even run with no batteries when plugged in to a powerbank or large battery bank via the USB. Big Smile
