I lost interest on this light, they don’t seem to care to respond… Their loss!

I just checked out the website and it’s not showing a T1R. What gives?

Why can’t Fireflies put that ugly ass CE, RoHS logos on the box I hate it. Hank does not put that shit on his lights so I do not see the reason why FF does.

Fireflies don’t put ugly CE, RoHS logos on your lights.

later

It’s an EU requirement to put the logos on the outside of the product and visible – at least when it comes to electronics. It’s the the same for phones, tablets, notebooks etc. Can’t hide it really. Don’t know about Fireflies, but many Chinese manufacturers utilize EU warehouses or amazon nowadays, so there isn’t really anything they can do about it if they want to sell their products here.

Hank doesn’t do it because he frankly doesn’t give a F, is a rather small fish in the pond and custom officers don’t open every single box to check a flashlight for compliance, but in theory if any EU country customs would look a bit closer at Hank lights they would have to refuse the import by law.

Flashlights often get a pass, but I know some TLF users had problems importing chargers from China before without proper CE logos which then got refused by customs.

Copy paste from another thread for visibility:

I gave Jacky another call today so I’ll write some of the info I received here. Please note that my mandarin is rather rudimentary at best so I may have gotten some of the translation wrong/misunderstood what he said.

1. The T1R’s release looks like it’ll be delayed until July. This is because they’re having trouble getting the necessary chips for the driver from the US due to the chip shortage.

2. Jacky said the short tube will be available on their website tomorrow ($15) and it’ll come with a clip.

3. Their updated headlamp will be released in May. Jacky mentioned they’ll have an option similar to the Nov-MU with slightly fewer LEDs. My understanding is that it’ll use the new buck driver and there will be a mule option (E21As) available.

4. I mentioned to him that people weren’t so happy about him not answering emails and he said he was sorry and it is because he is very busy away from home for work. He’ll try to answer all emails but replies will be a bit slow.

I have gotten responses on all 4 of my recent orders from last month, and 2 were for the new e07x. The email tag said it was a guy named Oliver. Considering this is my first time ordering from FireFlies it felt good knowing I had at least an order confirmation.
