So, guys and gals, I have not received the light yet. Do you think I should go for a refund, or not? I'll be getting my PL47 from Neal if I have to with Express shipping.

I haven’t gotten mine either. I am sure the Canada Post strike has delayed it.

@freeme and PAvlo, yeah it got shipped a while ago. That’s what happened. Got delayed by probably 3 months by the Canada Post strike.

I wanted to pay for faster shipping, but there were no ways to pay for it on the Fireflies website.

What is the correlation between titanium cubes ablnd whisky?

Cools the whisky without watering it down. Regular ice cubes melt and water down your drink. But, mostly, it just looks cool Big Smile

Mine landed in the States this weekend and is expected to arrive this Wednesday. That will be just 2 weeks from shipping notice. Not bad.

I took that to mean he likes his Whiskey neat, which is simply a straight pour of Whiskey. If he said on the rocks then I could see the dice. That’s kinda a turn off to put metal into your drink. Not something I care to try. Just get Reusable ice cubes, they won’t dilute your drink. Made from food grade HDPE and purified water. I can’t imagine metal dice work better as ice cubes, if you prefer a less tinny taste.

I got the shipping notice Nov 18 and mine is apparently still on a boat somewhere out at sea.

Do you put the tracking number that was sent to you into the USPS tracking search engine.

It eventually showed up there.

It’s been about 2 weeks (11/27) since my tracking notice and all I see on www.17track.net is:

This number can’t be found at this moment. It’s not available in the carrier’s system yet. Please check back later.

That’s how I know it’s still out at sea somewhere- “Nov 18- Picked up by shipping partner, USPS awaiting item”

So which after market headbands for sure fit the tube of this light? Imma get one on order with the hopes that it’ll be here before the light. I’ve got 4 zebralight headbands but not sure they’re big enough.

Just had some Woodford Reserve a couple of weeks ago. Also had some Knob Creek Rye. Liked them both very much.

@freeme can you ask please with Fireflies why the 18.11. PL47 are not trackable. They are not recognized in the system at 17 track. Thank you.

Dude, you are a psychic. My tracking updated this morning and now it says my light is at my local post office. I think the tracking may be missing a few steps along the journey, but at least it’s almost here.

Got mine today.
The threads Are the smoothest Ive ever felt I think. So that’s awesome.
But the anodizing had some dings in it and a few bumps in the material itself.
I’m going to use it for work, so it will get more dings and bumps.
It almost Looked to me like the cause of this is rough handling.

Anyone else had this problem?
The light works fine and everything, but still. A new flashlight shouldn’t have dings in it even though it was cheap, right?

I just received my 2 nichia PL47’s. One works fine with a Liitokala 21700 4000mah, but the other one the battery won’t even fit. I measured the internal diameter of the battery tubes and the black one measures 21.8mm and the champagne one measure 21.4mm. Kinda strange that the battery tube diameters are different. I was under the impression the liitokala was a pretty standard size battery too. I even tried removing the battery tube to get rid of the airlock, but it still won’t slide in. Also, not a huge deal but it did dent the positive end of the 21700 some on the black tube it did fit into width wise. Kinda disappointed on the fitment issues. Obviously you cant expect it to fit every kind of battery but it should fit standard 21700 cells with no issues if that’s what it is marketed for. I wouldn’t expect it to dent a battery with an advertised length of 70.4mm and would expect it to fit a battery with advertised width of 21.2mm. Maybe ill try and get some 50E’s and see if they fit better. The liitokala’s were cheap.

Still waiting for my PL47 to arrive, but I measured some of my 21700 cells.
Sofirn 4000mAh= 21.7mm
Shockli 4000mAh=21.7mm
Samsung INR21700-50E= 21.1mm
Samsung IMR21700-30T=21.2mm
Rofis RF21700=21.8mm

Edit- I got the Samsungs from Illumn and they are still on sale there.

Hahaha. I just figured we both live in the States and both had the same ship date.

50E’s need to be tightened down really tight to make contact. 48G have been confirmed to fit by earlier poster.

Mine finally arrived. Tube is 21.4 mm, so only my Samsung cells fit. Max output is 1800 lumens at start and it drops rapidly. Push button requires a lot of force to operate and doesn’t always respond- I feel the click, but nothing happens. Maybe that’s good for those who want to carry this in their pocket; there’s no way this light could turn on accidentally.
I’m glad I didn’t jump on the E07 bandwagon. Fireflies is nowhere near as good as Emisar.
