I notice that your first slot on the interest list is #648. Have you had a PM from Sofirn with your code?

I’m trying to purchase from eBay, but I am not hearing back after submitting my “offer”.
It seems like a crazy way to do the sales….

Attention to detail my friend…. the initial release is only 500 units, and they’re going down the request list to give each of the earliest 500 requestors the first chance to get one.

Your first request # is 997. I doubt you’ll be in the list of the first 500 people.

Think of it as pre-boarding vs general boarding of an airplane.

Nope, but my offer on eBay included my first (of 2) slot number and name copied straight from the first page.

I don’t care either way (decent camping season ended pretty abruptly over here) – just figured I’d share what information I had.

Masejoer,

You aren’t kidding, kinda skipped fall around here didn’t it! Smile

I’m in the 1300’s, eagerly awaiting release #2, on the list for (4) units, but like you, there is no pressing season to worry about. We’ll have them for many future outings!

Cheers!

Howdy neighbor!

I’d just like to get them before next spring, after temperatures start returning to 40-50 degree lows. These frosty mornings or not-freezing-but-soaking-days don’t make for the most enjoyable camping. You end up with waterlogged lumber when you need campfire heat the most.

My current LED lanterns are garbage compared to this BLF build, and I have quite a few.

Could I please be added for another unit? This would bring it up to 3 total.

@ Masejoer, agree with you on the LED lanterns, mine suck too. Coleman or Costco bought GE’s, just bad. My best option, and is a fantastic lantern is the gas Coleman Northstar (doubles as a heater :)), but a couple LT1 would be superior in EVERY way.

Have all the flashlights I need, most these days are shelf queens, but I know I’ll get great use of the LT1’s. I plan to get 2 green, 2 black and Lego them. I may gift (2) of them, but I’ll be keeping atleast (2) for personal use. Have the 18650’s patiently waiting for their new home Smile

Except all the people they pre-boarded have to sit in the back in the crappy cramped seats that don’t recline.

With airplanes, everybody arrives at pretty much the same time. Getting on the airplane first has little benefit (apart from finding space in the overhead bins). I’d much rather have a priority exit from the airplane. For the LT1 I’m hoping to catch the 2nd or 3rd airplane, so I don’t really have skin in the game for the first 500 seats. As long as they don’t overbook my ticket(s) or cancel the flight, I’m good.

There is no AliExpress code. Place an order, choose “other payment” then message Sofirn with your BLF username if you’re on the GB list and they’ll change the price

I just added you to the interest list but since you’re in position 2,891 you likely won’t get a PM from Sofirn until after the batch 1 run.

LT1 can work with single cell but wondering if it would stay upright with just single cell and top hat reflector shade? or I would need plastic wide base stand.
