Is everything you sell on the site in stock?

Sofirn is trying to make sure the inventory information is correct. But the warehouse system of sofirn is not good enough. It hapens when the system tells there is some inventory but warehouse staff can not find it. Or when the system tells no inventory but the warehouse staff find one or two units. Sofirn need to improve the management of warehouse.

sofirn, 

I couldn't order anything from sofirnlight.com since there are no shipping options to the Netherlands. 

Could you please add them? 

 

thanks

Hm. Ordered December 13th. Item is already visible in T&T.

I ordered a Q8 diffuser the first day the site was mentioned here on BLF. With the $2 off coupon it was $.99 shipped. It turned out to be not in stock, but I got notified it was shipped today, so that item is in stock now. I plan to modify the diffuser with a cone reflector on the inside to give my Q8 the ability to act like an LT1.

No Triton?? I’d guess you mean “no tritium”

Triton?

I also ordered one with the same $2 off coupon, received a not in-stock notification, and got an email that it shipped today Smile

I bought many flashlights from Sofirn. One was defective, Sofirn immediately sent a new one. Purchased on Aliexpress. I love the Sofirn brand. Cheap and quality flashlights. Direct purchase has one drawback. You buy directly from the manufacturer, so you have no buyer protection. He is not an independent judge to decide your dispute. The Aliexpress Dispute Center works well. I had about 6 disputes, I won them all. To buy directly from Sofirn, he would have to offer a significantly better price than on Aliexpress.

Noticed. Very strange. Must be a glitch in the system. Were batteries involved?

Ordered a holster. First try as accessory on the BLF Q8 page. Said it was sold out.
Second try as accessory on the Sofirn Q8 page: add to cart.
A few minutes ago it is the other way around.

I guess their IT-system apparently has some room for improvement.

But the T&T shows movement on my order Smile

No, I didn't include any batteries. I sent them a PM, and they said they will look into it. 

So, hopefully it will be fixed soon Smile

I have the same shipping option unavailable problem, and I’m in the US. Sent an email to sofirnlight@gmail.com, haven’t heard back yet.

I worked with Sofirn tech support, and now shipping is available to my home address in the US. If the site hasn’t worked for you before, try again, I think they put in a systematic fix.

I also confirmed that the shipment will be coming from China, so the usual transit time applies.

Unno. Depends on how much you use it.

Just goggled a review, http://budgetlightforum.com/node/67477 , and there’s a chart that spells out all that.

I don’t put much faith in charts, etc., because of all the variability.

Quickest example, you using a 3400mAH cell, or a cheapie 2000mAH cell? Right there’s almost a 1.5:1 difference.

Yes, I’ve seen these charts but they’re all for 18650 batteries.

You can cut them proportionately, but that doesn’t take into account voltage sag, etc.

Runtime depends on the capacity. Lumens depends on the voltage.

I tested my SP40 with a Keepower 1200mah 18350.
I got around 6 hours on medium before the battery was drained.
Idk how consistent the output actually was. But to my eyeballs there was never a step down.

This wasn’t a highly scientific test and I only checked medium mode. I was curious because i was about to take the light on a trip. I was only after a general idea of runtime.
