A few Ebay sellers have them. Hope they don’t discontinue them. Those are cool AA/14500 lights. I bought a few some months back, put some different emitters in them, they are cheap and simple. Just the way I like it. Smile

Yes I bought a few a couple months ago as well for red and uv emitter swaps because they are cheap sub $10 and I can us the stock driver for the swaps I went to buy about 5-10 more because I like them and banggoods , AliExpress , Amazon etc all sold out ?

I couldn’t find them on any of those sites either. I knew I should have bought more. Maybe Sofirn themselves or one of the members here that work closely with them can jump in and let you know if Sofirn still has some sitting around somewhere.

I contacted Sofirn an yes they are discontinued along with two others she said (quote) yes they are discontinued because the price is to low and we are not making enough profit from it. Even though it was I good selling item

And yes I asked if they have any left in the warehouse or anything that I can buy even at a slightly higher price

For those interested in this type of flashlight, there is a seller on AliExpress selling them. Not under Sofirn but under Alonefire.
Model X360
https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?catId=0&initiative_id=SB_2020052204...

BTW, there is a sale that is still up for some more hours!

EDIT (6th August):
I received the light! Check this link for some information!

Thanks for that, was just looking for another couple SF10s. I don’t love the PWM but for muggles with NiMH I like the lack of mode memory and starting on High. Well, M might be better, but only Fenix did that afaik.

Would rather Sofirn charged a buck or two more rather than discontinuing them. Their side-button lights (SP10x) work fine but the interface is the worst kind (IMHO). Simple lights really need to click on and click off, no matter what the other features are. I do better lending someone used to single-mode flashlights an Anduril light than a SP10.

Thanks for links above. Ordered the X360 and SF10 off ebay.

I want more SF14V2.0 for the always Low from start. Perfect bathroom light for the middle of the night.
