I think I’d still prefer an olive green one to orange, but it’s sure as heck unique. Any chance that Sofirn will offer a discount coupon on these, I wonder?

Would be great to see a sample preview photo of the orange model.

Barry kindly sent me some real pictures of the new LT1 colors. I think their anodizing team did a pretty good job, didn’t they? Maybe we get to see these new colors packed with new features like full USB-C compatibility (PD charging) as well as reverse-charging, i.e. to use LT1 as a powerbank to recharge external devices.

Looking good! – My apologies for my limited correspondence over the last number of months, been crazy busy with the big move, settling in a new house, all that.

I doubt it, unless it’s one of the prototype colors that I think were posted before (in very very limited quantity)..

Those who ordered the “Orange” LT1 from the Sofirn store (when it was listed available), I think were told that orange was not yet really available, from what I recall.

Nice to see that the Army Green and Desert Sand colors are now listed available (I hope these are really available), while the Orange option is listed but grayed out, when I check the link above.

I wonder how they look like in actual:

Sofirnlight.com shows this:

The Beamax (Sofirn affiliated store?) shows this (but this seems to be an older image):

It looks like the orange LT1 is available now, as it can be ordered from sofirn's website and their aliexpress store.

Judging from the picture on their website, the orange seems pretty much identical to the orange tone of the C01.

My green arrived and it is like the first photo in d_t_a’s post, not the lime green one but a nice dark green. Looks great and works fine. Glad to have two LT1’s for power outages and car camping.

For reference comparison of the 4 current colors of the BLF LT1.

 

 

 

And here juxtaposed with the C8F green, C8F tan and C01S orange.

I do like the subtle orange & the dark green versions.
