[4K Review] FIREFLIES E07 - The new EDC king?

Does the EMISAR v FIREFLIES battle have a new leader?

I have both the E07 and Emisar D4.

I like them both. E07 is much more powerful, can sustain higher lumens, runs longer and has more advanced firmware.

D4 is much smaller and better suited to pocket EDC. And it has the option to become tiny by swapping tubes and running with 18350.

Personally, I think the D4 makes a much better pocket EDC light. At 187g (including cell) and 37mm wide, the E07 is just too big to comfortably pocket EDC unless you’re wearing very loose pants or cargo pants.

Video was very impressive.  Still waiting for you to do a full feature spook flick.

Very good video! I have a D4S, but have been looking at the E07 for a while now…. so it was nice to see the comparison between the two.

Oh, was it the cops in the chopper we heard at 12:05? And were they after you for lighting up the town?

The E07 review is here cool !

Very nice video, a lot of work in it! surprised

I loved the background music and the inserted picture, very nice choice , the comparison with others light is always great to have, and globally the review is awesome, great job!

 

The E07 seem to be a great light, but i'll still wait a little bit for a v2 revision before i order one, if Fireflies fix the little problems here and there this would be it, i'll have to order one! tongue-out

By following your video reviews, I have the feeling you could pull it off and make something really good.  Great E07 review comparison btw.

Amazing video. I’m a flashaholic but still won’t sit through most flashlight videos this long. I watched all the way through (great editing) and LOVE the UI on the Fireflies. Candle and lightning modes might be my new favorites.

I usually skip to the end of flashlight reviews. The bit where they take it into their back garden!

It’s only January 15th but I’m calling it: best flashlight video of 2019.

I love the ‘lightning’ mode on this light. I was resting last night while the lighting mode was on, but I was missing the sound effect of the lightning of the video!

Ty, it’s just a shame a few people are reporting problems with their E07 or Fireflies could be huge!

These problems are the reason I haven’t got one yet. Some cells don’t fit, broken optics leg, sharp fins, dirt carefully placed under the rug… I hope there will be an improved v2 solving these

What 21700 cell would you recommend using in this light?

Thank you!

Samsung 40T is a good choice.

Are the cooling fins still sharp?

 

EDIT: What sort of knot is keeping the lanyard attached.

The cooling fins are not sharp. In Turbo mode they heat up to 60° C and stay at that temperature until you turn Turbo off.

The lanyard is made of a reflective shoe lace, knotted with two simple knots on top of each other (the pretzel looking ones). Any recommendation what knot is best for attaching the lanyard?

The lanyard and the tritium vial fob were not part of the delivery, the Samsung? 40T battery came with the flashlight.
