That is a good question that I have not asked Barry yet. My guess is that as long as the BLF Q8 stays in demand, they will make it.

Technically the BLF Q8 is a Thorfire product, so it would be up to Thorfire to decide if they want to stop making it or not. They have no reason to stop.

I would like to use PayPal to buy mine. If I got to wait longer from Ali then that’s ok with me. Ali takes PayPal right?

I like flashlights!!

Those of you wanting to buy from Aliexpress need to read post #201. The directions work. I ordered mine earlier today. I put mine in the cart yesterday and it was adjusted today. You will be notified when the adjustment has been made. Enjoy.

Nice. Now we Amazon guys just have to wait for the code.

Not normally. Since HONDARIDER did it, he must have asked the seller to use PayPal and they agreed.

Is this correct HONDARIDER?

Yes, just say where you want to buy from. I’m guessing Amazon US.

They are going to have 50 lights at Amazon US, but 300 at their Aliexpress store. At this point we might be close to the 50 US orders. I’m not sure. I guess it will be first come, first served when the codes get sent by PM.

Just a question – If I buy this light via Amazon, will it sent from my country or still from China?
And will the price be 100% the same?

Did you see this from post #1?

Edit 4Sept: Barry wrote a mail telling that the price at Amazon DE will be 40 euro’s (Amazon US and Aliexpress will still be 40 dollar), so a bit more expensive. This is about VAT he said. People who still want 40 dollar shipped can buy via Aliexpress.

I will update the list this evening. I’m glad that the aliexpress route is working! About Paypal, for many stores Aliexpress simply gives the Paypal option (so you do not have to ask) but they do charge a fee for using it.

Very cool. I know with Convoy you have to ask. I didn’t see a PayPal option on Sofirns site. Do you have to order on a PC or the normal website to see it? I use the app on my phone.

Yes, the Sofirn store shows the Paypal option for me on the PC.

For those in Australia I believe Aliexpress has started charging GST. So add 10 % to any price quoted.

My current and or voltage measurements are only relevent to anything that I measure.
