If I can use an NCR20700A 30A on a PL47, then you can use a 40T 30A no problem on an E07.

Just being curious about the statement on Fireflies' website:
http://www.ff-light.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=55

"E07 New Second batch from 4th March!!!"

Any ideas/information what's been rectified with batch no. 2? Have all known issues been resolved such as...?

- too short 21700 battery tube
- too much of a solder "blob" as a result of the bypassed driver spring (causing dents in the 21700 positive pole)
- sharp edges on the cooling fins
- broken legs on the optic
- crushed screw heads (maybe by purpose to keep customers from opening their "sealed" lights?)
- uneven MCPCB, leading to uneven distribution of thermal compound
- too little thermal compound, later revisions with too much thermal compound

Is there still a coupon code? Banggood failed to actually send anything from my order, and apparently isn’t getting any more of what I ordered. So two months later I missed out on the codes because Banggood doesn’t know how to stock and display product. Definitely never shopping with them again.

I finally got my order refunded through Paypal dispute today after trying for weeks to get a response from the seller.
Ordered from FF-light on Dec 18, and received a tracking number on Dec 25th that never updated past “International item has left originating country and is en route to Canada.”

I’m still down $5 because of USD/CAD exchange rates. I’ll be on the lookout for some other 21700 light, I’m not sure if I’m interested in the E07 anymore. Hopefully Emisar will make something.

Got my clear aluminium from Neal today, wow what a great looking light, its really gorgeous. The finish seems perfect, no sharp fins where the heatsinks are, feels great so far, need to charge my 40ts but tryied with a 18650 thanks to the included adapter works good so far. Pics dont do this light justice! This will be one of my fav lights so far great deal and fast shipping from Neal as always.

got an answer per mail from Jack today:

Improved a few things.

1. Round fins edge
2. longer body, 1mm longer to fit battery better

Freeme, I ordered from banggood with your code (Mar 01), but my order has been canceled (out of stock). I decided to buy on ff-light, but the coupon has expired. Could you refresh it?

I don’t remember what came with mine. I can recommend these. I prefer them on all my small torches with the quick disconnect.

I have no idea why this link is running off the screen

Tip: feed lanyards through using a folded piece of dental floss, works every time.

That’s a good start. I never minded the battery tube length it works with my batteries.
I think we also need to add the dust and particles under the lens. That’s pretty common with his stuff. I like my E07 and sounds like the newer ones will be perfect. I hope in the future Jack does more R&D before releasing instead of afterward so that he can be successful.

Good news, Jacky is back. He told me that Banggood will receive new batch of E07 within these few days. If you got have been cancelled previously, you might want to try reordering again next week.

Ok, thanks for the info. This is my second purchase of E07. The first time I ordered from Nealsgadgets (February 4) and also canceled the order, because it turned (after a month) out that Neal does not have the configuration that I would like.

I can see that title has changed and mentions two new interesting versions, but I don’t see any info about this in the thread nor on ff web. So, is there more information available?

Thanks for the update Freeme! I’ll order an E07 in clear anodization with XP-L HI 5000K from this second batch. As soon as I get it into my hands I will report about my observations regarding quality improvements. Or maybe I should wait for these nice copper heads? Love

I believe the copper heads are reserved for the titanium body for the first batch. If you guys would like to have copper with aluminium combi, do express your interest below. It is probably a good idea to state roughly how much more are you willing to pay for copper head option.

big heavy Cu head, tiny lightweight Ti body, can’t wait to hear the complaints about it…

Me, I want a complete recycled copper head, I mean ff is not Astrolux per se but it might be a $10 premium more or less normally, I don’t know, and more with a titanium body combo, but more importantly I want to know that he has fixed all of his other issues, there’s a whole list. He doesn’t respond to us but markets us special metals; it’s a bit of a conundrum.

My 219B version started acting weird. Click turn on and it blinks one to a high mode and dims to moonlight. If I try to ramp it up, it will also drop back down to moonlight. Sometimes clicking on the button have no effect at all. Cannot even turn it off.

Jacky responded in three days and said he will send me a new one. Thumbs Up I will buy the copper one so he can send them together.
