Seen it too, can be around $40 with points. But acrylic lens…? I’m not convinced to this idea.

Acrylic lenses for flashlights are usually better than molded glass ones.

LOL, they don’t show us the 5 die LED projection in the video.

It’d be nice to have that lens though.

Let us know if it’s long press for off, or (as it maybe appears in the video) off is just a mode you have to cycle through. The former is barely acceptable, the latter completely unacceptable.

It could be long press for mode change, but it doesn’t look that way in the video. I don’t see anything on the product page about the UI except “4 modes.”

I paid €48.00 from Banggood with some points, including insurance and priority direct mail.

I'm skeptical. Looks more like computer renderings than actual photos.

Yes, i see this very often with cheap lights.
I highly doubt this helps sales though, because it looks photoshopped / computer rendered.
Maybe for smart phone shoppers it’s not that obvious, though..
