UPDATE:

Sofirn order placed 2nd June, shipped notification 19th, arrival today (23rd June).

While I’m impressed with the speed, I had ordered a bunch of accessories as well as a C01S and C01R lights, package contained all the accessories and no lights???

Maybe Sofirn shipped them separately…?

Edit to add: The Q8 holster is a tight fit and doesn’t fit with my lanyard attachment Facepalm
HOWEVER, the Q8 diffuser is really nice! Big Smile

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

I sent a message to sofirn and got a reply already— the lights had been sent as a separate package!

In the TLF Sofirn wrote that shipping will start within the next week.

Since Sofirn is about to sell the new (colorful) batch of C01S on Amazon, I really hope they will be so kind to ship some C01R along to Amazon's warehouses. *fingers crossed*

His post said the package that should have had the lights arrived, with no lights contained.

Darn, the C01R is a gateway drug… I don’t want to think of how much I just spent on non-red items there.

On the brighter side, I just jump started the random gift arriving at random times train. Thumbs Up

Ditto.. Sad

I found some “no-stepdown” versions of the same models available from Sofirn’s AliExpress site. They’re priced a bit more expensive (compared to in AE) than the regular models, but I would like to test the “no-stepdown” version (that doesn’t seem to be present in the regular Sofirn channels) so I also ordered them..

Only the SD05 without timer stepdown and SP31v2.0 without timer stepdown.

SD05 without timer stepdown is here: (I’m not sure if the ones in Sofirn AliExpress still have stepdown or no stepdown though), they also increased the lumens rating from 2500 to 3000 lumens:
https://sofirnlight.com/sd05-diving-flashlight-3000lm-p0016.html

I can’t seem to find the link for the SP31v2.0 without stepdown anymore. I recall there was only 3 units available when I grabbed one. It appears to have been de-listed. Order just shipped out, so I guess it may be a few more weeks before I can check them out.

The SD05 without timed stepdown ist the new version of it. I don’t think the old one will be manufactured anymore. But of course, if there’s still some stock, it will be sold. Point was, the SD05 always had temperature regulation, but Sofirn wasn’t trusting it as I understood it. This gave rise to critics on the TLF.

Does the SP31V2.0 have temperature regulation? I used to own one but never noticed. With more than 1000 lumens it should better have something like that.

Sofirn should send a couple of these lights to this university. You never know what comes of it.

Sure. However, my impression is that Sofirn wants to avoid additional commission which eventually increases the sales price. I do not know how many C01Rs are left on stock but personally I would rather see them offered on Amazon than AliExpress. I could imagine that some people are reluctant buying because of extraordinary long shipping times from Asia to anywhere in the world. Selling these lights from local (Amazon) warehouses may improve that situation a bit.

Good point! Thumbs Up As stated before, C01R deserves a bit more attention. I always had scientific purposes in mind when thinking about C01R.
