Looking for an AliExpress filler flashlight for $7.01 or a little more

I want to order something on AliExpress that costs $42.99 in a couple of days.

If my order is $50 or more, I might be able to get $7 off.

So I need a filler that will be on sale for $7.01 or a little more.

I'm thinking it'll be a flashlight for my family.

(They're not nearly as picky as I am.)

Requirements:

It needs to run on a single AA, AAA, or 18650 cell.

I don't want next mode memory, or a twistie.

Also, preferably, no disco modes unless they're well hidden.

I have plenty of Convoy flashlights, so I'm not interested in them right now.

What is a good choice?

I guess I should be more clear.

I'm looking for something that will cost between $7.01 and, let's say, $15.

Any decent ideas?

Maybe Lumintop Tools?

Thanks for the suggestion!  :THUMBS-UP:

I think they're a little above my budget, but I like your thinking.

There aren’t a ton of decent (read: no blinky) options at that price. The C01s is an obvious choice, but I’d maybe recommend a Jetbeam Jet μ? I find it to be a very nice little light.

Sale price seems 11.5€+about 2€ shipping for Lumintop Tool. Not sure about dollars, but atleast they are good lights.

Also Sofirn SP10S is under 13€ with free shipping.

@Cythras:

I'm sure those are great little flashlights, but they're twisties.

Sofirn SP10S looks pretty good.

Apparently the Lumintop Tool costs more in USD.

Hmm, I should learn to read at some point.

So far no one has mentioned any 18650 flashlights.

Are there any decent ones (other than Convoy) that fit my requirements?

There is also coupon for followers which gives 15% off from orders over 10 dollars.

How do I get that coupon, and will it stack with my $7 off coupon?

Not sure if that stacks, but you could try. Follow store and its on the store page black friday fest.

There are two stores that sell the SC31B.

Are you talking about the Sofirn store?

The Sofirn SF02 would be my choice for an inexpensive filler light, though it’s 2xAAA so it doesn’t quite meet your requirements.

I think the penlight form factor is really convenient (and easy to gift), and there are no strobe modes or complex UI interactions to remember for the SF02. And getting at the emitter isn’t very hard if you want to replace it (I’m planning on swapping an LH351D into mine).

I received this flashlight today.

It came from New York instead of China.

I love it when that sort of thing happens.

The flashlight is very nice, and I'm sure my family will like it.

I know that the Sofirn SC31 Pro is a lot better, but my family doesn't use unprotected 18650 cells (like I do.)

Can’t beat the price, too bad I didn’t see this earlier…

Oh yeh, the cell not only has protection, but a micro port to charge it, too.
