New batch, new color. I think that would be great, plus it would make them more exclusive (one of only 200 !!! Cool ).

Clear anodized, because no anodization means possibility of scratches.

Or, to fulfill my owb dreams, how about a 20$US copper plated Sofirn C01S?

I agree with both! Or brass. My no anodize one is already scratched really ugly and I just got it 5mins ago. It came already with marks.

Question is: if Sofirn thinks a second run BLF version with low-high is a good idea, should it also be unanodised again?

I’m no expert on anodization but doesn’t it serve to protect the aluminum surface?

I should’ve bought more! I would scoop up two more if there’s another batch, preferably slightly different color or anodization?

Clear ano would be nice though I could settle with unanodized/black.

standard version has hundreds inventory, sofirn will do next batch when they are the inventory is low.

I will try to make next batch all start from Low. Clear Anodization, unanodizing; bronze or copper material; can be possible.

Looking for Dealers of Sofirn lights

This light does not need the heat-dissipation quality of copper (perhaps on a 10440) , but brass would be nice, it has more strenth than alumium, the C01S is skinny enough to not become too heavy, and it looks gorgeous.

I’d definitely be interested in a brass one. I’d personally prefer it over copper.

Did people actually see my comment?

I want the benefit of the look of copper/brass without its weight.

So, electroplating lights it is.

For this small light I actually like the weight of brass. But if Sofirn wants to get into electroplating it gets my full approval. Smile

Actually I’d buy for sure any flashlights you guys make in brass / copper as long it’s AAA, AA or 18650 AND it starts from low to high Big Smile

Nahh, I want real brass because of the way it wears. They may look pretty similar when new but if you actually use the thing, the difference becomes obvious over time. Real brass wears in like a well-used tool. Coated aluminum, no matter how well coated, eventually just looks beat up.

But that’s just my opinion. Smile

Definitely want a L-H version. I ordered the wrong ones and have a bunch of H-L which I find pointless for me. Just give-aways now.

I did this too. Unscrew it all the way and then separate the top two parts. Then just put it back together and it’ll work again like normal.

Thanks. I figured it out. I was at work when it happened so i was a little frustrated and I almost lost that plastic piece. But when I got home and the battery was dead it was simple how to figure how to fix it. But I put a little blue locktite on it to prevent that from happening and i did the same to the one I’m going to give to my little brother, because i wouldn’t want that to happen to him and possibly lose those pieces.

Got mine today!! Nice lights, but I think I like anodized more. I would love this light in copper, brass, or while we’re at it… why not bronze? I never hear about bronze lights.
