Sofirn Q8: review + armor mod

Sofirn gave me a discount code and I was in need of a high power and high endurance light. However, I found it lacking in terms of survivability which is why I armored it up:

I like the idea of drop protection. I could use something like that. I seem to drop my flashlights too much.

You are probably not getting the 5K lumens with those batteries. I have 4 Panasonic 18650B and they are good for longer duration, but my 4x Samsung 30Q result in a brighter beam for a shorter time. For indoor use it really does not matter.

@Calaveras,

thx. The protection also improves grip and overall handling. I use Panasonic NCR18650 PF delivering 9A (2900mAh) which should be enough for the Q8. But the Samsung 30Q might be a even better solution if I can get them for a good price.
