I got mine today also.
Very good looking finish. The whistle doesn’t work as expected.

I just received mine, and I like it, but I’m disappointed that the whistle doesn’t work well at all, and it is heavier than I expected.

I got mine, too. I can confirm that the whistle doesn’t work. Also low and mid do have very visible PWM. But this light was so cheap, I can’t complain. I like it.

Maybe I’ll cut off the whistle to save space and weight…

The whistle does work but the pitch is quite high. Most probably due to the restricted airflow. Frankly speaking, i don't like the taste of brass in my mouth, thus i am not going to use that function.

Okay, so maybe I’m too dumb to use it. Big Smile

My arrived today, but I will not blow the whistle.

Other than that, nice little light.. Thumbs Up

Unfortunately I’m forced to cancel my second order with this flashlight. Due to nonworking whistle.
I intended to be a gift, but it does not happen in this situation.

I’m sorry, but I do not quite agree.
Once the whistle function is described, the flashlight should work as a whistle also.
I bought and got two for a gift and now I wonder how to explain what exactly is this…
A red point from me to Zanflare because of the bad design.

For those who are curious of the F6 whistle sound.

F6 whistle sound:

Survival bracelet whistle sound:

F6 whistle does produce sound when you blow into it but performance is lacking.

Other unit with nonworking whistle. It’s incredible that Zanflare have a bad design of this simple part.

Sorry, members of BLF about the F6 whistle issue, I have applied for further improvement to the whistle function.

And guess what, R & D Team answered back, if we wanna up the sound of F6 whistle, then we have to have a long enough pitch for air flow, that is, the F6 maybe be designed longer and more space, then.

They now are working for a solution, as to how long we exactly designed for F6, and the final parameter of F6’s decibel, we later will give you instant feedback.

At the same time, any comments will be highly appreciated, and really hope more advice from you wiseman.

Best Regards,

Gearbest

And still I have a test as well about the F6 whistle after I got your description about the issue.

Please have a check, and maybe some ideas will come into your mind Facepalm

Great thanks for your feedback and suggestions.
