Well, I have not reviewed the ratings of the Sofirn Q8, but I can attest that it can operate through a drop from the top of a door to the floor. Don’t ask . . . Facepalm Thumbs Up

One tough light!

I noticed my brand new floor did not fare nearly as well. Facepalm

Hopefully I can repair it before the missus notices. Innocent

Tell her it was a ‘highly scientific’ drop test. And that you were ‘taking one for the team’ by preforming it.

That probably won’t fly of course….. but maybe the genius of the story will take the edge off her dismay. Big Smile

I have a few proving grounds around the state and finally took both my Sofirn Q8 and D4 w/XPl hi to the hills and valleys with big oaks. In stock form, the Q8 is amazing at output and throw! I can't imagine what Dale's upgrades would do to it! I know many have already experienced this. I'm now just about at the 'giggle' reaction output level!

I thought I would post this here as a few folks mentioned wanting to wait for a deal on the Q8.

Link to amazon lightning sale on Q8, get it while the getting is good!

The deal on the Sofirn Q8 supposed to kick in at 13:45 PST, assume that's 4:45 PM EST. I got the email from Amazon on this. I dunno if this notification link will work for anyone else but here it is:

Oops, mine is on smile as well... I use smile for donations directed to our church.

 

Expected/guessing on price will be in the low $40's.

I think someone said last time it went on a similar deal it was $42.44. By the time folks read this it the deal should have started.

Donno if this is appropriate here, but having recently acquired a Q8, I believe
Sofirn and BLF should consider having a re-charging plug onboard the Q8.

Eliminating disassembly to charge the batteries would be a great plus, with
Less wear and tear to boot.

Just a quick note. Nkresho put some xhp50.2 in his Q8 and got about 16k lumen. Crazy.

The new 3v version 50.2 seems to work well in the Q8.
