New Arrival of D25S USB Rechargeable Headlamp

Hi BLFers,

D25S headlamp is available on Amazon. I helped improve the UI and emitters. It is an upgraded version of D25 headlamp, featuring two SST40 emitters for 1200 lumens and better UI. If you think the quality of D25 is acceptable, D25S will be a better choice.

D25S Kit (Upgraded Version): $25.99, only $19.49 after 25% off code: D25SDEAL (AMAZON US ONLY)

D25 Kit (Old Version): €26.99, only €18.89 after 30% off code: SofirnD25 (AMAZON DE ONLY)

Hi Barry,

Will you be selling the D25S on Amazon DE, too?
What CCT do the SST-40 have? I assume you took 6.500K and not 5.000K, correct?
The UI appears much better than the one D25 uses. Thumbs Up However, I doubt that strobe is often wanted in a headlight (if wanted at all). So, doubleclick for strobe might confuse some people as they expect the light to active turbo instead of strobe/beacon.

Cheers,
Thomas

Wow, if I needed a headlight, I would pick one up.

Looks like a great deal.

SST-40’s are a good upgrade. Not real keen on the 6500K but that can be changed later. Got one, thanks Barry.

How many of us still “need” a headlight? That’s funny.

Barry, what is the size of the mcpcb and is it glued? I would like to mod it with quad e21A in both reflectors. Might buy a few if they are easily moddable.

We will try sending inventory to Amazon DE next batch. The tint is 6500K. Thanks for your suggestion for the UI. I will think about it. But I don’t know if the factory will listen to me again.

@Barry, is it possible to get them to use SST-20 4000k?

Sofirn makes excellent lights and are very tempting. The things that hold me back are the cool CCT and low CRI.

I know that modding is part the fun, but I travel so much that I rarely have time lately.

So thank you Sofirn for saving me money. Glasses

I was able to mod the old version. Mcpcb is glued but was able to pry it out with the help of some heat. Tried with two 219cs on KD 16mm mcpcbs. Had to sand down the sides of mcpcbs so that leds would be close enough to align with the reflectors. It worked, although I settled with reflowed neutral white xml2s on the original mcpcb since I found a couple in my stash. I was also able to fit 17mm Yajiamei optics after sanding them down. Not sure if you can reduce Clemence’s VR16SP4 enough to fit though. Maybe 2×2 on VR16S1 would be easier.

Thanks a lot for listening to BLF’s “voice of the customer”. Beer Big Smile Actually, this is one of many things I really appreciate about Sofirn.
In my humble opinion the D25 host is quite useful. Things I would like to see improved would be:

- different emitters and/or optics for left and right LED, e.g. my favourite configuration: red light (XP-E2 deep red 660nm) and white light (LH351D 4.000K 90CRI) with red light behind a 60° TIR lens and white light in an SMO reflector
- better current/temperature regulation
- more sophisticated UI (e.g. doubleclick button to active/cycle red light, single press on or off, hold button to cycle low-med-high)
- overhead strap for more stability when attached to one’s head

You could call this one “D25 Pro” Silly

Interested to check out this D25S (SST20 LED) headlamp..

Will this SST20 version of the D25 headlamp be available in AliExpress too? I am unable to purchase from Amazon store.

D25S is SST40 version, not SST20 version. The first batch is sold only on Amazon US, it may be sold on Aliexpress in the future.

No worries :D.

Yeah it is a shame. Since you’re in the Philippines though i think they have a shop in shopee(sofirnlight.ph). Avoid paying additional for the handling fee and inconvenience of going to the post office. Unsure if they are connected to Sofirn in any way though but they do sell mostly Sofirn products.

Maybe Barry can clarify if that store is them as well?

Ordered this then Amazon cancelled my order due to lack of stock. Still shows to be in stock. I’m confused. I will need a new code since I used this one already. Unless it can be reset somehow.

The online Shopee/sofirnlight.ph does sell many of the popular Sofirn flashlight models, but the product listing are often late, and some models are not listed there.
Eg. I’ve already received my Sofirn SP70 via ordering directly from AliExpress. But the Sofirnlight.ph Shopee site does not list the Sofirn SP70 yet.

Also, the sofirnlight.ph site does not appear to sell some Sofirn models that are listed on their Sofirn AliExpress shop. But overall, it’s another option for those in the Philippines to have that alternate online store from which to purchase the Sofirn flashlights.
