Never been disappointed with shipping from China. I just assume I will never see the item and then it shows up.
A month is completely normal.
I am waiting for the red and blue so mine haven’t shipped yet.

Well, I can definitely testify to the lights durability!

I was out for a bike ride this evening in the dark. I took a muddy, wet corner way too fast and the bike slid out from underneath me, I landed hard on my right and felt the C01 in my back pocket taking a lot of the impact, including me sliding a good few meters down the road Facepalm

It now has decent battle scar, but works perfectly Thumbs Up

Glad you and the light came out alright. I hope the bike is ok, too.

It looks like the specific color and tint combos I wanted were in stock momentarily when I first checked, but just sold out when I went to place my order. I guess I’ll just have to wait a bit longer.

So much for that. They sold out while waiting for
the price adjustment. This might be more trouble than it’s worth.

Glad I looked here when I did, I have been waiting for the time the lights became available in colors. My only complaint is that the red light would only come in 5600K, and the blue in 3200K, seems like they should be the other way around . . . Facepalm

Wonder if the electronics can be removed to swap the hosts?

There were less than 20 of either one so I just grabbed one of each and got my order in.

EDIT: Surprised to see the comments that are 30 min older then this post that said they were sold out. Maybe they are spoon feeding a bit at a time for some reason? At this instant, there are 16 blue and 7 red available for shipment to the USA

Agreed.

I guess I can just swap heads and remember which is which.

Now only 4 blue and 2 red left, who will get the last few of these? I wonder how long they were for sale (and how many were available to start).

I think what is slowing the sale down is most, make that many; people possibly want the 5600K in Blue & the 3200K in Red. Or at least the choice of both CCT’s in both colors.

Easy to remember, red heads 5600k and blue heads 3200k

I have been seeing how long folks have been waiting for the black ones and just figured when the color was available I would pull the trigger. I would definitely prefer the other way also, but at least its not black. And they are color coded already.

Yeah… I went ahead & “pulled the trigger” too. I already have some black ones so I am gonna mix some of the colors up when I get these. Wink

Hello BLF !

Nice to see that the color ones are available eventually !

I received my two black ones (one of each) a few days ago and noticed that the two had some kind of hot spot and the 3200K one had an iridescent halo around that hot spot, not very bright but i am very sensitive to that kind of thing and found it ennoying when reading in bed with the  torch.

I might have missed some previous posts (busy vacations !) about that but i blackened the upper half part of the "reflector" with a permanent marker and the hot spot is gone along with the halo !

weird that they made the warm ones blue and the cooler one red. I thought the point of making them colored is to discern them better.

I will pass on the red/blue ones I guess. I am waiting for my black ones I ordered on the first day the 2nd batch was available. From all chinese sites I ordered something from in November, this the only thing that has not arrived yet. Do they even ship this or is someone transporting these in a pushcart?

Patiently waiting..

From what i see the 4 combinations are in stock so you nothing prevents you from ordering red 3200K and blue 5600K (or the opposite)

I was just on the site, and was able to order a warm red and a neutral blue. The site said limited quantities for both colors.

Anybody got the price for their red/blue order adjusted to the group-buy price yet ?

I sent the request yesterday noon and nothing happened so far.

@ Sigster… Same here, nothing yet. Remember the time difference & other stuff they have on their plate also.
It will happen…. Smile .. Thumbs Up

Still waiting for the price adjustment. But it seems the light will be sold out until then. So be it!
I thought this should be a Group Buy. Sofirn will be happy anyway because the people are buying though they have to pay the regular price.

Yes, it has changed again. The price has dropped to 7.99 (I paid 8.88), and there is one blue 5600K available, but no red 3200 available. I forgot about trying to get the group deal price, but I had a $1 off coupon and a $3 off coupon, so the price was basically the same as the group buy price anyway.

Still hoping I can just switch out the electronics and get the colors swapped, but guessing the potting will prevent that from happening.

@Gunga, no Paypal in Canada.

I actually prefer this though. Credit cards only take 2% rather than 5% Paypal takes.
