You really should do a video of the unboxing as well, in case you receive something else.

Well we know that puppy runs hot if left on Turbo so maybe they had some warranty issues as well.
Already have one and like it, you just can’t get stupid and tail stand it on Turbo and then just walk away.

Yeah I ordered a couple.

Makes a great gift to an educated user.
Thanks to the OP for the Heads UP!!!!!!!

P.S. The lighted tailcap is a little greedy on power, charge it up like every month to be safe.
You can lock out easy by cracking loose the Head, not the Tail.

Yes, this thing runs hot, i was the one who experienced the LED wires came off during runtime testing.

So, arguably, the worst aspect of the Tool 2.0 is the LED. Having bought some of these ti ones, anybody have a good place to buy a nice emitter on a 14mm board to do a swap?

Just when I finally had a few bucks in my wallet, this offer comes around. Oh well, there is always next month.

My Future's So Bright...well, my flashlights are anyways.

Got a bit caught up in Firefox scripts, but finally managed to order one.
FWIW: in the description of the other AA Tools (black, grey, white) they weigh circa 25g.
The description of the silver one says it weighs 40g. And it has an illuminated tailcap.

Even if it’s “only” an aluminum light, it’s still a good buy for a modest €9.58.
Thanks or the heads up.

EDIT: about 4½ hours after thanking me for the order I got a second mail from FT.
Saying they can’t deliver the light (I already paid for) for the price we agreed upon.
Apparently they made a mistake and want me to pay more/extra for the light or get a refund.
I’ll have to think about that, but my first impulse is telling them we have a deal, and stick to it.

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

The 14mm board won’t fit straight, you will have to: a) reflow the lead into the original PCB, or modify the head itself.

BTW, Luxeon V2 emitters will probably do a good job on this light!

I think there’s no cure for this condition we all have here. It spreads so easy with a few pecks of the keyboard.
I already own one of these, I told myself I don’t need another one. Had it in my cart, even though I wasn’t going to buy it and walked away to eat supper. After supper, I come back here to BLF and my condition kicked in. Crazy

Good thing I didn’t wait!

Did it through PP, so hopefully it stays and doesn’t get cancelled.

bloody hype is worst than getting Corona virus Tired

Could be their tactic to low price by mistake so people rush in the buy then the refund will take times…kinda like boring money with no interest for 2 weeks
