It appears that the cells offered with the GB are these same 3000mah ones available on Sofirn’s AE store, and if so, they are protected. I’d say it’s a safe bet that they are protected.

Sorry if this message is annoying, but how do we get the Amazon code?

wait for one to be sent to you via PM from Sofirn. They are running the show now. If you are not in the first 500, you MAY have to wait a couple weeks or more.

I’m #9 on the list, and I haven’t received the code – are they going in order? Or do I need to request one directly from them? I understood from their earlier post that they’ve already started sending out Amazon codes, so I’m not sure what to expect.
Thanks for all your work on this!

Another possible approach to giving a batch selection to early adopters. Give them codes that will work on batch 1 or 2. With the ability to choose batches. Then put the unused codes from the first 500 at the beginning of the second batch.
The batch one codes will work for batch 2 assuming they are ready within 30 days. If not I’m confident that Sofirn will extend the 30 days. But of course I’m only speaking for me and not Sofirn in any way or manner.

I have yet to see protected Sofirn cells. None of the Sofirn lights I have came with protected cells. Unless I’m blind the link you supplied is to unprotected cells as well. From my testing Sofirn cells are not something you would buy on purpose. Capacity is OK but only at extremely low amperage. Max amperage is about 2.25 amps which is well horrible.

if you buy purchase batteries alone, there are protected version and unprotected version. Since sofirn lights are protected, the KIT is including unprotected batteries.

When will the accessories be ready? I think that DBSAR said that he was going to make a video to talk about the accessories but I probably missed the video.
