BLF A6 in Copper or Brass Group Buy Interest list

GROUP BUY will still be on, I will be out of the loop for a week or so, I will update when I can, just keep posting.

Several weeks ago, Neal from Nealsgadgets.com and I were messaging about new lights. Neal had already decided to remake the BLF A6 (Classic BLF 18650) with raw copper and raw brass. The lights got to me a few weeks ago, and life gets in the way, so I am just now getting around to this.

This will be an interest list for a group buy on these lights.

There are no new driver updates for this, it will have the standard 7mode/4mode driver, with the reversing UI on the button press.

Lit tailcap, and a black button cover also included if you are not a fan of lit tailcaps.

LED options will be updated somewhat. Standard XPL in CW and NW as are available now. SST-20 in 4000K 95 CRI, SST-20 in 5000K and 6500K non high CRI

If there is any interest in 2700-3000K lights, let me know and I will pass it on to Neal, no guarantees he will be able to source them however.

Group Buy prices will be: Copper – $36 Brass – $34

Edit: 18350 tubes will be available as an add on, will get a price and post it here.

Let me know if you are interested.

If you are here to bash Neal or his site, HERE is a link to that thread. Otherwise, let’s just keep it an interest list for what is offered here, and if anything updates on where it will become available, I’ll post it here too.

BLF A6 COPPER or BRASS

As you can see, you can also lego the parts. I actually do not have an aluminum one anymore (been generous with giving them away) so I am not sure if it will lego with the standard A6.

Nice idea this. Might be tempted by a brass one (SST-20 4000k).

Shame about the tailcap switch though. I HATE the ones that light up. And covering it with a black cover isn’t really an answer IMO.

Would have been nice to see something like an XHP50/SST-40 in there too.

I like the idea and the price is good, but it is not the ultimate light for me to want in copper or brass. I think sticking to the BLF-A6 driver is a good idea, still one of the nicest trouble-free drivers around with still a fine user interface.

I only hope that they did their job fine-tuning the bleeder- and tail-led resistors so that the user interface is not disrupted and the parasitic drain is not too much.

Single SST-20 and FET driver doesn’t sound like a good match… Or maybe there’s different type of driver for SST?

I don’t think the light should wear the BLF special edition badge? We had nothing to do with the new build this is just a copy? Plus the original edition didn’t have the BLF special edition printed on the light.

Agreed the badge should not be mis used, but it is just a re run of something that already was a ‘special edition’ isn’t it? just in copper/ brass.
I’m not fussed either way, I still want one. Thumbs Up
