About the question if the group buy is finished for all the sources (aliexpress, AmazonUS and AmazonDE) : yes, it is finished for all of them, but “we don’t accept new interest for that price publicly. We may accept via PM or email according to our inventory”.

when you try and select more then one on AZUS it “alerts” and says “due to limited supply by seller, limit one light per perchance” but you can buy as many as you want, just one at a time, and once you use a code, ANY code, you can not use a code again for that listing.
Thanks for the info Fritz. Thumbs Up

Never got a code. Looks like my preference for Amazon US didn’t make it to the list.

This is probably a good excuse not to spend $40 on a third Q8 when I haven’t even figured out what to do with the second Smile

Not to tempt anyone but no one took me up on the code offer...

The code is SUPPOSED to be coming from Sofirn, so any external codes are technically bogus and a breech of the sign up for this group buy. Just saying…

To clarify, it is a code I received from Sofirn via PM that has not been used. Not bogus. Just passing on what I'm not using.

Ah, I see. So anyone that hasn’t signed up or hasn’t gotten an PM with the code can buy the one Broodmaster has decided not to buy.

I bought one on AliExpress and I bought the one I got the code for on Amazon. Interestingly enough the one from Amazon isn’t going to ship for a week or more, in spite of having Prime. Supposedly it will be here by Oct 2nd. Thought that was odd. Additional components I ordered simultaneously will be here Monday.

That does seem strange. I ordered mine Friday the 21st., it shipped today, and is supposed to be here Tuesday the 25th.

And that is just regular FREE shipping…. no PRIME.

There were more Amazon US interested people on the list than the 50 flashlights that Sofirn had shipped to the USA initially, so there must be some people who do not get one immediately I guess.

Do you prefer a 6-pack or beer belly? Put flats on an a2 aviator and watch the price go up.

never fear shadows…it means a light shines nearby

I was a little worried about that. I did a quick count and I tuned in at almost the last moment!

Thank you for your efforts on this and of course,  to Sofirn for the offer!

Is it possible to buy the emitter board and leds fitted. 

So it would require minimal work to change a Q8 to cool white.

fluke, this Sofirn Q8 comes with cool white emitters, it’s what it’s all about… Wink

(perhaps you are wanting to also upgrade a BLF Q8, you could ask Tracey at Sofirn if they will sell you the MCPCB populated with these emitters, she will probably find a way…)

Thankfully, Florence was a non-event for most of the Outer Banks (Hatteras northward). Our Post Office was closed for six business days, but it appears the regional hubs are OK away from the hard hit areas. My stuff comes through Raleigh/Rocky Mount.

I have one unused AMZ code sent by Sofirn. If any body wants it, do pm me. Forwarded to NordicMist.

I have already ordered mine from AliE.

Glad to hear. Best wishes and speedy recovery for the affected areas.

I too have an unused Amazon US code if anyone can use it. (Given to a fellow BLF member)

Mine is starting from KC, KS, arriving Tuesday. 3 states away for me so, for those closer, that explains Monday delivery, perhaps.

Yes, the group buy ended a couple days ago. The current price is $50 now which is still pretty decent. Right now Amazon US shows 7 left.
