Piss off  Sofirn, you raised the C01S price barely after putting them on sale and they don’t bear sale price now (standard version does). 


Chill man. If you don’t like their pricing, don’t buy it. Heaven forbid that a company tries to turn a profit…

Sari33, that would require updating/reprogramming the driver firmware, to 3-mode maybe.

Yep gchart, don't worry.

And that is possible by yourself?Didn’t know why only 3 lumens,good only for read paper(maybe)…Hope would be more than declared.

At least they didn’t do a moonlight/ firefly mode and 100 lumens. Sick

I just ordered a couple “gray“s… Have half a dozen colored on the way too.

It is unclear to me whether it is raw aluminum or anodized?
Most pictures look raw except one that looks sandblasted and a little tad greenish…
Anybody saw one?

Firefly mode would be more useful to me instead moon mode.2 levels 20 – 100 lm would be perfect

I just asked Sofirn to confirm which version it is. Pending feedback. I keep you updated.


 


Update: Barry (Sofirn) just confirmed it’s the one that uses low to high mode order just like the original BLF edition. But their supplier made the host color different as it’s now sandblasted and not clear coming as is from the CNC machine.


https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33013541411.html


OP is updated.


  

Thanks for confirming, ordered 1 !
I missed the first edition, so this is a consolation prize in a nice matte finishing Wink

Edit: I paid 8,81€ and immediatelly after that, the price on the plataform increased to 8,82€! Funny, no?!

In contrast, it usually drops a cent Smile in my case. I think it has to do with currency conversion round off.

20 would be too bright for me as the lowest mode and firefly would would be even less useful than 3 lumens. Well, to each their own I suppose. This is probably why Sofirn never bothered to ask lol.

3 lumens is enough for me to do indoor house inspections at night. It’s still too bright for middle of the night stuff.

With loss on optic would be 15 lm at low
These twist 100lm lights are expensive compared to high power lights
My 1$ AAA light still work after 2 years use on my keychain
It’s sturdy, mod friendly and came with real Cree Ughh

  adding a piece if diffuser film on them makes the 3 lumen look more like a 1 lumen .

They changed the knurl-type to a finer one. And the knurling is now the same on the battery tube and head (a slight annoyance of mine is solved with this). I think it looks better than before, and despite that it is finer, it is still quite grippy.

At low brightness it does have a bit of greenish tint. At high brightness it looks nice.

Sofirn, this is a thread for the C01s…
If you wanna advertise here, at least include a link for that light on your site! Otherwise this information is just spamming…

I received two silver C01S today.

Not sure i like the mate finish… i’d rather have them bare Al as seen on some pictures.
They work in low – high mode.

I got my bare sandblasted ones too today and they are ok looking. I expect that a few weeks on a keychain in a pants pocket will wear the matt finish away and the light will be shiny again.

Just ordered a red one direct from Sofirn from their posting four above. What order would you guess it will be high or low first?

I contacted Sofirn about C01S brightness order when ordering from their direct site and they said said H/L for black and L/H for other colors (red/blue)
