Can’t vote but would vote:
Yes, I have a few and love m so everybody should have the chance to get one. But I think I won’t be buying one.

I’ve bought quite a few and used most of them for presents (much appreciated by the recipients).

Yes, I would by more IF they get a moon level added and a hole so they can be carried on a key ring. (Yes, I’m prepared to pay quite a lot more if these features are added.)

There won’t be any changes, sorry! The light will be exactly the same than in earlier GBs.

If enough people are interested in more complex light (more modes, maybe different tints), a separate GB can be arranged.

Would it be possible to get a hole drilled?

Last time I asked the answer was “no”, but I can try again..

Please do, it would make it the perfect key ring light.

ok, would rather add hi, med and low to ‘on and off’.

why is it so difficult for a 1xAAA to have brightness modes?
none of them seem to have it
or if they do it is only too-high and too-low..

is it something about the 1.5V source, that makes it hard to do?

I have a couple now and like them but to be honest, for me at least I would rather see another budget light chosen for a group buy.

I’d love to have one (or two).
I was early to ‘discover’ the SingFire 348 at the time, but kind of quit the hobby not long after that, so i missed the opportunity to obtain a 348 with Nichia 219.
I bumped in to it on Gearbest lately, but it’s out of stock…
I still have 2 of the 4 348s i bought at the time, but it needs a bigger hole in the reflector to accommodate a 219.
I would probably ruin the reflector trying it myself…
High, low and firefly modes would be nice too, but it’s not a must.

There is almost no room in the tiny pill. Even an emitter swap is tough. I personally like the BLF348 as is, though a mode and a hole in the tail would be nice, how much more would it cost then? A $7-8 single mode AAA with high CRI is a rare thing already…

I am interested for sure, changes or not!

More minimalist simplistic designs like this for the city dwellers please. A 1x AA/14500 version of this will be great. Keep the minimal diameter, the simple stainless steel cylinder, the NW LED, maybe recessed stainless steel switch-cap for tail-stand and you got a winner. Why doesn’t it exist yet?

+1 for a 1x AA version (or even 3x AAA) with moonlight mode for the nightstand. The single AAA size is too tiny to find at night!

Ah.. yes… Sad
Doesn’t look easy to modify either, seems the business is put in there from behind.

That would like double the price to go from AAA to AA?
