Interest in HL3A, used triple led + optics lens kinda better or the new generation to be compare than single led + clear lens. Good choice! I gona guest the led would be sst20? With selectable tint offer?…

In search of the most ideal flashlight in town:
1. BRIGHTNESS
2. Durabillity
3. Design
4. Quality
5. Price$$$

Interested in the headlamp, does it come with any accessories? Headband? Also a clip would be handy, I can clip it to my backpack strap for hikes.

ᕦ(ò_óˇ)ᕤ I can always be wrong, probably 75% of the time.

Id be interested in both as long as the price is right. Also will the HL come with band?

How does the HL3A compare against the Fireflies PL47 besides having one less LED?

As mentioned previously. The FW4A should be a 21700 Flashlight.

And the headlamp looks loke a small Fireflies. There is nothing similar to the FW3A.
Where sits the driver and switch? Is the battery behind the LED or besides?

They're Facebook/Instagram images and the URLs are pretty long.

I can see them, but I'm not surprised some do not.

21700 quad would make the most sense since there already exist the very similar Emisar D4.

Don’t really see a good reason for the HL3A since the Fireflies PL47 eclipse this in every way.

There will be a different. Triple leds will draw less current then less heat and better timing stepdown than the PL47G2 which has quad leds. Ofcourse just a bit tad lower in brightness for HL3A, but pretty much stable output. But if the offer price, which I’m suspect, probably lower than PL47 G2, that could attract some interest. My 2cent. Grad

Will the FW4A be in 21700 form or 18650? In my opinion I believe it should be 21700.

So I’d say for a decent design, that at least has a chance of raising reasonable interest here, take this quad head and put it on the 21700 body. MAYBE then.

As for the headlamp, the design again just doesn’t inspire any sense of uniqueness, aesthetics, nor original thought.


Yes I think the same, they should make quad with a 21700, it looks strange to me with that big head now…

About headlamp – believe me or not, 20 min ago I was thinking: “There is so much FW3A variants, why not making headlamp?”
And there it is Party It looks…ok, but also I’m afraid it’s not well balanced. This head looks much heavier than the rest and if those two grooves are for headband mount, then it will feel heavier on one side and be uncomfortably to wear.

If you struggle choosing your perfect headlamp, check my headlamp guide, I compared 15 most popular headlamps there: CLICK

Interested in HL3A. But I think the head maybe is needed to be redesigned for better heat dissipations.
