Welcome to BLF AWTACT,
What do you really think of Jaxman lights..?
Niubility ??

Haha, you know maoku! About Jaxman, Z1not bad,others just so so. Their products are not really niubility.

I thought that might make you laugh, I was wondering about your post on Jaxman thread about niubility, I understand that as well and can be understood different ways, Chinglish confusions,
I like the owner of Jaxman very much and he has done me many good favors over the years but has a hard head sometimes, doesn’t like to have suggestion to much but sometimes he will listen,
I have all of his lights going back many years and yes Z1 is probably the best he ever designed and manufactured, next I like X1 and I always suggested to him to go with XHP35 in the X1 and he refused but finally he did X1S, I have the first one he sold, it was really bad then but much better now.
Welcome again to BLF, Chinese are great friends to BLF and help us a lot with manufacturing our designs.

Edit: Have you seen the BLF GT that our members designed and Lumintop manufactured for our group?
This is the support thread but it will give you an idea of what our members design, this is one heck of a light, “BLF Support”:http://budgetlightforum.com/node/57676

Thanks, I know that big guy, really interesting.

Welcome to BLF forum. Since you have CNC factory, I think you can start off by designing batteries tube or tube adapters or handles first.
Design some handles, tubes and adapters to use different types of tubes for batteries configuration below:
1×18650, 2×18650, 3×18650, 4×18650, 8×18650, 1×26650, 2×26650, 3×26650, 4×26650, 8×26650, 1×21700, 2×21700, 3×21700, 4×21700, 8×21700

Pick some popular flashlights like BLF GT at this moment.

But I would say shipping cost is one of the factor that you need to solve in order to sell internationally.


Thanks for you suggestion, I will try to do these.

No problem. Just to point out to you there are many flashlight brands now. Very competitive to enter this segment. Why not offer something others are not offering. You can look at BLF GT short tube selling at USD20 price before discount.

cool i'll see you when you get there

If that’s the case, maybe you can consider to design something like Blackshadow Terminator with 4xXHP70.2 and 4×26650, output should reach 25000lumens

I was hoping AWTACT can solve my puzzle(my wife’s puzzle actually) why I buy so many flashlight. Big Smile
Actually every time she asked me, I told her that is because flashlight is so beautiful, only thing stop me from buying them is high price tag.

Chinese flashlights are also so great! America has really fallen behind. The quality is so much better on Chinese ones. Even brands like ZL are made in China.

A hello from Hong Kong!
(Basically a city in China)
In my place there aren’t a lot of people who are enthusiastic about flashlights, probably because I live in a concrete jungle, and one rarely needs to use any lights. I’m glad that BLF exists.

P.S.
I reckon that a Convoy S2+ extension tube(e.g. 2× 18650 Convoy S2+) would be a popular idea.

The person who always struggles between practicality and lumens.

I think Sofirn company is somehow related to Thorfire.

Speaking of Thorfire have you seen the BLF Q8? I don’t use mine that often because it is a bit big for edc, however it’s a great light especially for the group buy price of $40.

What was revealed in another thread is that Sofirn is the manufacturer for Thorfire, which explains why they can sell Q8 original components. Sofirn only in the last year has started branding their own lights, and seem to be fast developing a name for themselves along Convoy lines. Good quality and excellent value, with a concern for what is important to our niche market.

Beam me up!
