I noticed the Sofirn Q8 is advertised at $40.59 but when selected it shows $41.99.

I put the Q8 in my cart last night @ 40.59; today the cart price shows 41.99, same as product page. Your listing on this thread still shows 40.59- someone needs to correct.

I’m unable to order bare batteries from Sofirn (no shipping method for bare batteries), so I ordered the SP33 with 26650 “bundle kit” instead at 2 different occasions to get hold of the Sofirn 26650 battery.

I notice that the 2 26650s have similar wrapping, but have slight difference physically. I wonder if one of them might be the so-called “high-drain” type.

I have yet to do a capacity test of the 2 batteries. But using YR1030 resistance tester. The more protruded 26650 (has smaller vent-holes, bottom is not completely flat) measured 41.7mOhms (AC IR) at 3.90v whereas the flatter 26650 (completely flat bottom) measures AC IR of 13.7mOhms at 3.90v.

One weighs 92.5grams while the other weighs 93.0grams (basically very similar weight, might even just be sample variance)

I suppose the 13.7mOhms version is the high-drain type?

I doubt it. The HD batteries have a button top added on and have not started shipping yet. They are also rated at 5000mah.

Do you have a clamp style ammeter to measure them in a FET style light?

As far as I know, Sofirn uses different generic batteries in 26650. Some measure closer to 5500mah and are labeled as such. Others measure closer to 5000mah and are labeled as such.

It is not possible to pay with Pay Pal, as I can see it is only for USA and UK customers.

Two weeks since I ordered 26650 batteries and no tracking updates. I wonder if a shipping label was printed for my order and pinned to a wall.

On the other hand, some other items I ordered around the same time seem to be somewhere over the pacific ocean.

About my order, tracking does not work.

Well, my batteries arrived in the mail today… out of nowhere. Based on the IRs I’m seeing, I’m very skeptical of the 25A rating.

Sofirn, this is not cool: some 11-11 deals have a higher price than this afternoon (DF10, SP36, and likely more). I’m getting less excited over the sale if the deals change for the worse.

Noob question (I’m new to this kind of sales): Aren’t 11-11 prices fixed as announced? At least, are they fixed for things I have in my cart?

Then buy before or after the sale. Duh. Problem solved. Lol Big Smile

I don’t understand why anyone would get upset.

Prices always fluctuate, if you don’t need it right away, wait for the price to drop. That’s what I do (assuming I care enough to save a few bucks).

It is their store and their prices so it is ok to increase the deal prices after showing a lower price first, I just mention that it is not cool to do that and it is not good for the trust.

Upset is a strong word for how I feel about it, but I was a bit unpleasantly surprised about it because It is the first time that I notice such a thing. And it implies that I must stay alert to the last minute if a deal is still a deal or not, not my favourite type of shopping.

Sofirn SP33v3.0 has been listed in AliExpress since a few weeks ago (but listed as “sold out” so that it cannot be purchased yet).

I notice that BG now lists the SP33v3.0
https://www.banggood.com/Sofirn-SP33V3_0-XHP50_2-3500lm-Type-C-Rechargea...LED-Flashlight-18650-Torch-Light-p-1593978.html

and its price appears to be basically the same as the one in Sofirn’s AliExpress store. (and for BG, if one has accumulated some BG points, they appear to be usable on the item to lower the price some more, making it cheaper than the one from the Sofirn AliExpress store). Granted, expected shipping time is still “on Nov 24”.

I can not believe how time flies!

Another 11.11 is coming, and this will be the best price in history and in the future I guess. So it’s might be a last chance to have all these selection at such low price.

The song in my brain again “Just one last dance. before we say goodbye, when we sway and turn around and round and round, it’s like the first time……”
