I assume it’s plastic, just like the PA40 (had two of those, gifted them away, still miss them..)

That’s why I’m looking forward to see manufacturer solving the issues -> we might be able to get a good clone for half the price.

The PA40 has a “carbon fiber reinforced composite body”, not sure what plastic they use though as they don’t provide much details.

The SA-22 uses PA66 (nylon 66)

From wiki:

Quote:
Nylon 6-6 is frequently used when high mechanical strength, great rigidity, and good stability under heat is required. It is used for ball bearing cages, electro-insulating elements, pipes, profiles and various machine parts. Other popular applications are: carpet fibres, apparel, airbags, tyres, zip ties, ropes, conveyor belts, hoses and the outer layer of turnout blankets. Nylon 6-6 is also a popular guitar nut material.

I wouldn’t be concerned about the the threads holding if they are made well with good tolerances as its pretty tuff stuff.

Also I hope no logo will also be available from Ric if this goes through instead of BLF by default.

Sure. Do you want fries with that?

But seriously: They are also planning small changes after which it would make coffee too!

What about another model for us Tea drinkers?

better modes

0.2% of 880 lumens is 1.76 lumens which I would find pretty useless myself

Also any chance of OP reflector? That would be high on my list of wants for this light as it would eliminate any chances of a crappy beam pattern leading me to give it away and writing it off as a loss/wasted money.

edit The lowercase “h” in “STARRY LIGhT” looks like a unnoticed error by the manufacturer.

0.2% mode provides enough light for many tasks, and very long runtime (rough estimate would be over 17 days of light!)

OP reflector would be a nice addition, but I doubt it's doable. I'll ask anyways. (Stippling it yourself is always an option)

I suppose 'h' is part of their logo design, as it's that way in all the logos..

I personally hate OP reflectors, i would rather have more throw otherwise i can just buy a replacement reflector (no need so far) or use a smaller reflector light (convoy S2) since most of us have more then one flashlight

why not make a flashlight from BLF self ?

always available … the brand of BLF itself, with any gain as sponsorship for expenses and optimization of the site.

eg a KE5 with brass pill, qlittle driver and xml2

with a nice logo on both sides and a blue button

all those visitors here “I’m new and I’m looking for a good flashlight”

you are going to sell thousands … BLF
