[4K Review] FIREFLIES PL47G2 - Innovation vs Build quality rears its head again...

FIREFLIES would be my favourite brand if they could iron out the needless flaws.

Yeah, I am a newbie but saw to many problems with these. Really wanted one, grabbed a ylp cri2 and soon probably another zebra.

I ordered two of these a week ago, one for me and one for my dad! It was mainly due to me and my dad comparing our flashlights (my new D4V2 vs his no-brand chinese 6500K thrower) and he was blown away by the power and beam from the D4V2 that he said he’d love that one as a headlamp for his trips.

So I started searching and wanted the maximum amount of brightness with a similar beam to the D4V2, albeit a bit more throwier. Ended up on the XP-L Hi V3 3A which is 5000K, it’s supposedly the highest output while still being an okay color temperature. I have a love for SST-20 and their 3000K-4000K >95CRI, but decided to go with something else for my dad this time since he doesn’t care about CRI. And of course I had to get one myself.

I also purchased Armytek’s headband for the Wizard, planning to modify it or 3D print a modification so it will fit the PL47 perfectly. It should fit out of the box, but I’m not sure how well.

The original headband isn’t great from what I’ve heard.

Current lights:
