The day after you wrote this they changed their shipping policies. According to this INFO Fenix Store no longer ships to Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Netherlands, Switserland, and other pirate strongholds.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

My SP10a ordered from Ali on March 28, 2018 has the UI MascaratumB described above and starts on Moonlight. The SP10a ordered from Amazon on April 10, 2018 starts on low, without moonlight, and is completely different. Annoying to have the same light with two different UI’s, but whatever. A Sanyo flat-top UR14500P (49.5mm) works in both, while a protected button-top Nitecore NL147 (53mm) does Not work in either. Just some info for future people browsing this.

Hi Greenlights
SP10A on Amazon is an old version, which starts on low, max output 500 lumen. While the one on aliexpress is actually same with SP10B black. Max output is 573 lumen. And it starts on Moonlight.

i have received my blue one sp10b from sofirn store on aliexpress…i have no complaints, but one thing is making me unhappy a little bit…electronic switch button is a little bit loose or rattle a bit…in fact, the top of the button…it has good tactile feeling while pressing and changing modes, but you can hear it while shaking flashlight…it looks like the top of the button has some room to wiggle…otherwise, everything else is fine…i have sofirn sf10 as well, and sp10 is much brighter on maximum…sp10 compared to sf10 has cooler white tint, while sf10 is more neutral white…

Does your blue SP10B works with 14500 batteries?

I ordered a blue and a red of the SP10B. The same 14500 battery that works in the red does not seem to want to work on the blue one. AA NiMh battery works fine on the blue flashlight.

Thoughts?

Hi ssschen
I’m not quite sure why this is happening. They should be same. Anyway, we would like to take care of this issue for you. Please check your PM.

Not liking the new UI versus the older one. Way too dim to way too bright. How do I take it apart? Is it clockwise or counter clockwise? I don’t have anything that fits into the brass rings either.

“Way too bright”? No such thing…

Its a decent thrower, but the moonlight jumps up way too fast. Wouldn’t mind if there was a real low mode in between.

I don’t really like the beam and the hotspot for it either, I’ll probably look for a TIR I can put into it on those higher modes, but it would also probably up killing the moonlight which is a shame.

It appears the new SP10A has a higher medium on a 14500. Anyone know the runtimes on these new modes?

By 14500 battery: Moonlight(2lm)—-Low(60lm)—-Mid(224lm)—-High(573lm); Strobe (573lm)
