And now there is a $3-off coupon, which works out to $11.99.

I had all versions, V2 is hopeless, I do not recommend it..

- Starts with Low, WTF?
- The mode memory sometimes does not work at 14500
- One 14500 was discharged to 2.2V

I got my today (finally!).
I use only AA, so can’t comment on 14500, but starting with low (5lm) instead of eco (0.5lm) is a big disappointment. Facepalm
One needs to click (slowly) 4 times to get to Eco mode. Unfortunately 4 quick continuous clicks turns flashlight to lock-out.

I have previous version as well and it’s perfect EDC Love , as it starts – according to manual – with Moonlight (1lm) witch to me looks more like 0.5lm or even less.
Now I’m wondering who in my family or among my friends will be the victim and is going to get it from me as a gift. Innocent

The ML is so low on mine I have to check if it is on or not . What do you use it for?

My wife appropriated it to use during the nights not to wake up our baby girl.
And you are right – during the day it’s hard to tell if it’s on or not Wink

So I received v2.0 today. After one hour playing with it, the light fell on the ground – and was dead Facepalm
One single ( and first one) fall on the ground! Angry Unbelievable…
It looks like Sofirn did nothing with “Impact resistance issues” http://budgetlightforum.com/node/58866

Seems to be a pattern. Check your LED . Mine came off without dropping it . Good news, Sofirn stands behind their product. Give them a message.

Is this a pricing mistake or are they trying to get rid of the product? Seems lower than ever at $7.30 on sofirn’s AliExpress store. I picked up a few but I haven’t been following the threads on this version so I hope there’s nothing wrong with these..

I think you are right and they are getting rid of the V 2.0 batch…

V 2.0 is crap… Lower output than v1( only about 170 lm with AA), the head is glued Facepalm , and my copy died after single drop on the floor…

Yeah, I feel like the v2 is a big step backwards. The prior driver version had a better UI. Ideally they’d use it and just add another mode between moonlight and the old low.

Is it true that it doesn’t have memory mode for AA? That’s a huge negative, if true.

Mode memory does not work when using NiHM (and other AA cells)? Is that right?

 

Can someone please confirm that!

 

Thank you.

That’s correct. No memory and moonlight is the last mode accessed. Those two things kill this light for me. I really never use it.

I got one of these, and it just doesn’t feel substantial. So lightweight and cheap feeling. Unimpressive.

Thanks for the comments!

I was seriously considering buying this light (I like the lights size and style), but lack of mode memory, and questionable reliability (when dropped or hit heavily?) has changed my intentions. Definitely will not get this light.

It’s crazy how so many expect a high end flashlight and pay so little. If you want something built incredibly well then pay more!
