My Missing LT1

Just received this Sofirn/BLF:

“Sofirn 8:36 pm
Sorry, I can’t find your order. Please contact customer service on amazom who can give you better asstistace.”

And my reply to Sofirn/BLF:
“Sofirn/BLF and Sofirn/Amazon have given me no asstistace on this “not received” order that is 3 months old now.
I still have not received the light. Please someone help me.”

I had luck with Amazon, hope you get some good news soon

Remember to take off the paper sticker covers at the bottom first. Glad it worked out for you.

Aside from not having a USB output, it’s a fun, tough, useful lantern.

Does anyone have a link to a solar charger to charging this light, so it can be used indefinitely in case of an emergency?

Both of those actually, but i use the Eceen 10 watt mostly for charging the LT1 during the day. (been using that model & testing it for nearly a month, and its able to charge the LT1 every day to full charge, even on a partly cloudy day. I have 2 Eceen 10 watt units, and other models as well i use & tested.

As long as they are a good quality model that can supply an actual 10 watts of power or higher like the Eceen 10-watt, or any higher wattage models are usually good. (research & reviews usually helps.

This could be useful to those looking at the interface for USB-C. It is about the Pie fixes to the new interface.

Quick Question, I tried searching but didn’t find exactly what I was looking to find. Can you use Samsung 35E NON button top? Do I have to use a button top cell? I’m not trying to add magnets or solder, etc.

It has to be a button top, or a flat top with positive terminal above the wrapping

So a VTC6 would work? I can’t think of anything else that is protruding. Maybe a Sanyo 3500?

I have no clue, I remember there were one or two dollar told that would work, as they have the terminal slightly above the wrapping

Sanyo NCR18650GA’s work. Do not know what other flat top might fit. But do not let a muggle insert a battery upside down, the LT1 Does not have reverse polarity protection.

AliExpress will probably have some deals, there might be a coupon for sofirnlight.com

Is there any information on a version that has a proper USB C interface?

Or (even better) an advanced version that includes the full USB C plus additional goodies/accessories.

I have waited for years for the product (was around #150). Still looking for a version without issues. I want three identical devices.
