Every now and then Nettac(?) has micro-sd cards viponned. I’m offloading a bunch from my laptop onto a 256gigameg one to give myself a little lebenraum.

Take that hand elsewhere, grasshopper.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

Not a flashlight, but you can get $30 amazon credit for your first Amazon Key (Garage delivery) order using this, so it’s a money maker.
I only used Key once to get the $30, but it’s nice to know if your garage door is up or down from anywhere.

Man, the amazon deals seem dried up this year. Any suggestions for some good ~$10 18650 lights? Prefer non-zoomies but can live with it if they are modern.

There have been a few good/great deals prior to today. Today, I bought a Tool AA kit and Wuben L50 for some family friends. I tried to buy an Armytek Tiara but their site couldn't identify/ship to a US address (?). So, the deals seem to be ~$20 and up.

Not under $10 but comes with battery and has moonlight as well as good neutral emitter tint.

I was bored to tears at the in-laws looking for deals all night the last three nights or so and there weren’t a lot of low price deals on 18650 lights. Or the deals went fast (there were a few and I missed most of them).

Sofirn has the SC31 Pro for $22.74 (kit) on the flash sale page now… which is decent for that light. And 18650battery.com has some very decent deals on the Black Friday page (with a free light). I’ve bought a lot from them this year and bought some of the 3350MAH Sanyo 18650s (7A) for $2.99 each. They also have Sony VTC6’s for $3.99 and 50G’s (5k mAh 21700s) for $4.99 I had to have Innocent Decent shipping too.

That is actually the S11c sold by Sofirn (and out of stock in China until next month according to Lan at Sofirn). I reviewed the light on Amazon a few weeks ago after Funtanstic loved, hated, then loved it again Silly As he’s a dealer, he has some interesting opinions, but he now says it’s one of the few lights he won’t sell… but will own himself.

I LOVE the S11c as an INDOOR light; which has replaced my Sofirn SP10 as my ENC (Every Night Carry) sitting on my bed stand. Like Anduril, It has a hold- on for moon mode (brighter moon but perfect for the 4am run to the pisser). It doesn’t ramp (like the S11b) does, BUT it does have a great LED in it, simple low, med, high mode, and (also like Anduril)… double click gets you to high, NOT strobe Flat Stare

I have found Anduril to be the go-to UI for most of my nicer lights as of this last year. And my “thumb memory” expects moon mode with a press-hold (and turbo on the double click) and so this little light has the SAME core features I am finding to be THE most useful in Anduril. The IU on the SP10 (edited/corrected 11/28- don’t know where I was getting an “SP15” from?) is just backward with the press- hold for on/off and so no more confusion… AND this S11c has USB C charging!

I actually ordered a few of these after the review (the $9.99 versions at Sofirnlight.com) and this is how I found out they were completely stocked out. But for the instant gratification from Amazon at that Prime price (***with a Sofirn battery, the decent 3k mAh black Sofirn wrapped 18650, and USB C cable)… that really is a decent little zoomer with a great tint using the Samsung LH351D emitter for the price. Magnetic tail cap too!

Might just be your deal after-all Big Smile

I just placed an order there. I needed more sanyo ncr18650ga, saw the molicel m50a and grabbed two of those to try, and a skyrc mc3000 since it’s $20 off.

I got lucky and snagged one of the C3s for the $12 deal. I am concerned about the over-charging problem they are having. Also wondering about the battery (lower capacity, protected- right)? Can you run a flat- top 18650 in it? Maybe not that high a current battery probably?

Ironically mine is on my doorstep as I write this. I’ll get to play with it tomorrow night after 7 hours on the road back home Flat Stare

Cool beans! Want the new Molicel, but I snagged about 6 of the 50Gs (their Epoch re-wrap brand) on my last order, so good on higher capacity 21700s for now. Let us know how the free light turns out. I ordered last Sunday- before it was added.

Yes that’s what it comes with. Ran a flat top high drain to test

Did you ever find out where the protected battery is set to? I’d be careful with a high drain battery maybe? But glad to know a flattop fits as I’ll most likely toss an MJ1 in mine and toss the Wuben battery in the fridge for another light, another day.

I couldn't resist that $12 deal as I really like the C3 (I did some testing on a previous purchase but gave that unit away).

I measured 4.4A on a 25R, ~1600 lumens plus a proving ground comparison showed me it's between 1500-2000 lumens. The output is consistent on the two units I have/had. As for the overcharging, the indicator light turns green at 4V and I may just have to charge any batteries for it with a separate charger when I can't keep an eye on it.

Out doors the light is very bright and seems to throw further than it should with its wide beam.
Indoors i notice my led is off center. The oddest pattern i’ve seen out of a light so far.
From the outside theres a yellow circle followed by a white square and inside off center of that is the round hotspot.
I’ll probably see what some D-C fix does to it

Not really an indoor light as it's  easier to ignore the TIR(?) artifacts outside.  DC fix should be a great solution!

Muto and Zappaman – Thanks! Snagged 4 so we shall see. The crappy C8 clones that my kids have abused for years need to be replaced.
Hopefully these fit the bill.

Thumbs Up Thumbs Up Thumbs Up *got home from TG this evening and just double checked and the battery in my S11c is indeed the better 3000mAh Sofirn. So I am sure it came with that battery (which is a great fit for this light)!

I echo semtex41's thanks. I first saw the S11 on Sofirn's website and could only order the XP-L version. Little did I know it was on Amazon. I ordered 2 for the kids as well! Made my Black Friday more interesting Smile

Glad some people got hold of some of these S11c lights this week. For the extra few bucks you are getting a decent 18650, USB C cord, and lanyard in a nicely made light WITH a magnetic tail also- FROM Amazon! -not bad at all guys and gals Cool

I WISH Sofirn would put the better emitter into the S11b (with it’s ramping mode). I’d love a nicer 5k(ish) tint in a little ramping light like this. But the 6.5k XP-L is pretty blue (in the current S11b) and it’s not a light I’d use in a heavy rain storm (or much outdoors) and really… the S11c’s current IU and super emitter really is perfect for my bedside (and any indoor) use. Barry at Sofirn made a good call there, and I’ll buy a few more when they come back into stock (at Sofirn).
