Hi All,

Thank you very much for your support to this Project/Promotion. Smile

We have collected your feedback and had discussions with Tank007. They are also aware of the related threads on BLF. Following are the answers from Tank007 in regard of the major concerns from our E07 BLF edition users.

  • Battery Length & Thread problem
    • "The pill module was customized to accommodate the multi-mode driver. The body tube design/length was not changed. The standard AA and gray protected TrustFire 14500 work, no length problem. If the design/length was changed, the standard sized AA and 14500 will be too short to work with this special E07 because of the spring-less design at both ends. "
  • LED Tint not neutral problem
    • "We used the best possible LED emitters"
  • Mode order problem
    • "No comment"
  • PWM flicker problem
    • "No comment"

We have invited Tank007 to react to users' feedback, however they showed no interest. We were disappointed by their respond. Therefore, we have decided to put a hold on the upcoming BLF customizations (TK-567 & TK-373) with Tank007 which we have planned earlier.

Despite the fact that Tank007 is not interested to react/defend their reputation, Manafont decided to offer something to the community to make up for the inconvenience caused to everyone who purchased this light and not satisfied.

We are currently in the process to bring you a list of offers/options provided by Manafont. The list will be available by the next Tuesday (20-September-2011).

This light seems perfect for me and almost exactly what I was looking for anyway. Do we know the emitter?

Do those of us that put in first have any kind of priority so they dont sell out with new folks before those of us who were in on it from the go have a chance?

well thanks for the offer, but i am not sure if 20 bucks (actually we don't have the price yet) is ok for that kind of light also the emitter appears to me quite old

Looks awesome!  I love the osram emitter in my Uniquefire A1, hopefully this will be as nice.

The Osram Golden Dragon IS NOT a bad LED

Is a bit outdated..... in short, there are more efficient LED´s but, the Osram has some unique characteristics... for me is a bit difficult to explain in English, but...


Look the UniqueFire AA-S1 (what a wonderful light!) look the Black Cat (another good light). Of course there have had some units of those lights with bad bins, bad tints, etc....


I am for one of these lights, OSRAM Golden Dragon multi-mode...... interesting


EDIT: I forget to mention, AA/14500 support, minimun size for an AA light, good tint... etc

Enjoy BLF

I can't wait to get mine! Just debating whether to get two or not (one for use, one to save) of them. I just hope there are enough to go around. Would hate to see members that were in it from the beginning not get as many as they want.

Osram... Wonder if an XP-G mod is doable?

My Osram GDP in my EX10 is quite disappointing against even an XP-E on all levels, including beam smoothness... At least its a neutral!!! I guess its not going to stop me trying one.

Darn... I was getting pretty excited but I'm not so sure about the Osram LED, especially concerning some of the comments. Is there a reason for going with this emitter vs a newer, more efficient one besides cost? I'd gladly pay a few more $$ if it meant an XP-G or XM-L. 


Aside from that everything else seems great! I love the size, modes and AA/14500 capacity.

and i'll probably have to get one, but i never had an osram, so i don't know what to expect, what the pros and cons are. i can't imagine that it wouldn't have been better with a different (cree, R4, R5?...) emitter.
