Big big thanks to you and all who have helped on this project. I watched all your development videos. Long time Coleman gas lanterns user and I still plan on using them as I like the heat from them while winter camping. However the LT1 have become my go to lantern. I use it all the time at work too.
Patiently waiting for the mini version. Thanks again.
Got my third one today in green this time and just love the colour.
This one has came set with the simple Ui and of course took me few minutes to remember the 10H to switch it to advanced Ui,
these days takes very little to get me confused…. yes keep laughing you`ll get there one day too hope not
I’ve bought several different USB-C OTG adapters/cables to be plugged in the BLF LT1v2.0 (or other Sofirn lights that feature powerbank function, eg. the Sofirn Q8 Pro, Wurkkos HD20, Wurkkos TS21, Astrolux EC06, and possibly more in the future) so I can use the flashlight/lantern to charge other stuff that only use a standard USB-A male plug.
I notice that some of the OTG USB-C adapters (male USB-C to female USB-A) have bigger molds that barely fit the USB-C port on the lantern/flashlights.
Is it safe to use USB-C OTG adapter/cable (USB-C male to USB-A female) on these flashlight/lantern to serve as a more general-purpose powerbank? Or would there be some concerns to note about?
(I understand some of the cheaper/lower quality adapter/cable will pass a lower current, maybe just 5v/1A; but the more expensive/higher quality OTG adapter can allow 5v/2A or maybe 5v/3A)
I think using an adapter is even better than safe (when using high-quality ones) because you can force the LT1 to act as a powerbank and the other device to charge itself. When I plug my smartphone in my Q8 Pro the phone tries to charge the light for some reason, so I need to plug in an adapter to the Q8 Pro which has 5.1k pulldown resistors on the USB-C CC1 and 2 pins to activate 5V.
You can get one in Sofirn store on AliExpress
Mine came within 12 days from ordering to GTA, perhaps quicker to Calgary since you`re so close to Vancouver where usually the cargo plane lands, according to shipment tracking.
Without batteries came to a grand total of C$ 64.25 .
I generally order mine off their Chinese website and get them in under two weeks. I get charged sales tax (marked as VAT) but, shipping is free and delivery is fast so I keep going back to their store.
