Sofirn SF47 Reviews? (4xSST40 light)

I held my brother’s and was impressed by the feel in hand and the output. Does anyone have measured output values for this light? Runtime graphs? I’m sorely tempted to buy one after holding it. Seems like an ideal light for taking walks.

I own one!  I don't have graphs of runtimes and similar things.  However, for general uses, I like my Convoy L7 most.  The L7 is superbly balanced for long walks and has a lot of runtime.

 

For a smaller walk-around light or, use in a dark motel parking lot, I find the Convoy S12 to be a handier option.

 

That being said, the Quad-Emitter Sofirn SF47 is a good light but, I think for most people it is too specialized unless you already have a bunch of flashlights and want to fill this nitch.  The Convoy L21B with the GT-FC40 emitter or Astrolux FT03 are both worth consideration for your use as well IMHO.
