It just ocurred to me why the battery needs a “tool” to remove it – it’s probably because they intended to supply it with a cell inside and it helps them get around the postage issues. Having a “non removable battery” means they can ship it through the post more easily I think?

I’ve been carrying one for a couple months. I like it.

I think that it’s just out of stock at some sellers – not discontinued.

I wish I would get the full story, but of course, no one ever does. Yea, it was out/available for a while on the market, little pricey, but has some nice LED's and features in it. I suspect competing against similar form factor lights in the $3-$10 range was a tuff sell. The usual sourcing like at BG and Amazon is out of stock, unavailable.

It's still a sweet light for me.

That link is for the EDC05, which is a different model.

The EDC05C is this link, which shows it’s sold-out:

~~~~~~~~
side comment on the EDC05 (programming mode):

BTW, regarding the EDC05, I have an older batch EDC05, which has the programming mode (similar to Manker E11 and UTorch UT01, allows user-selected 3 brightness sub-levels for each of the 4 main brightness levels).

Someone showed me a new batch EDC05 and when I mentioned it has programming mode, but I tried to program but it does not appear to have programming mode. The new batch appears to be fixed at the 800 lumens max (formerly, the EDC05’s max brightness level can be set to “400”, “600” and “800” lumens. Now it is fixed at the highest brightness only). No programming mode, but other functions seems to be similar.

Fancied one of these for some time but always thought they were a bit pricey, I finally ordered one from Banggood a while back with a coupon from somewhere on BLF , it went straight to back order ! I waited , and waited and waited for it to come back into stock.

Got a little worried when I saw the posts above saying it may be discontinued or changed and the listing disappeared from Banggood.

I messaged Banggood for any updates , First they offered a refund , I asked how long I would have to wait for it to back in stock , They could not tell me.

Now , like many on this forum ,I do not really need this flashlight so I said I would wait as long as it takes for them to get me one, Banggood were happy for that to happen.

Only a few weeks after that conversation with Banggod they emailed to say it was on its way to me, It arrived today , It’s changed very slightly ,and I like it ,The battery insert top is now slightly taller and is knurled so it can be removed by hand ,no tool is in the box.

Light is now about 92.5mm long.

Just checked the listing is back on Banggood with the new design.

I guess the saying “good things come to those who wait” may be true in this case.

I think that many will like that change to the cap – I certainly do. Oh, well, the original version that I have works well enough.
