FW3A, a TLF/BLF EDC flashlight - SST-20 available, coupon codes public

Hi, I'm listed as being down for four (4) lights, but I only asked for two (2). I've only ever made one request post for two (2). See my history, it's pretty short.

(Not sure what happened. I had to double-check this to make sure I wasn't losing my mind. )


Hey, darrylo, you ordered four (4) flashlights.

The Miller gave him number 588 and 589 on Interest List. TK moved it to 586 and 587 See Post # 4, Page 1 .
See Post: #2132, page 72, Wed, 01/10/2018 .
pepinfaxera gave him number 931 and 932 on Interest List. T.K. left him at 931st and 932nd on the List of Interest See Post # 4, Page 1 .

If it was a mistake, no problem.
I’ll take two from you.
I’ll give you two, numbers 586 and 587.

So… Opened the 200+ new post, and accidentally closed it, and then lost track where I left off.

Read the 5 or so newest pages.

Was there a decision on anodizing? How about emitter and temp? Or at least what emitter and temp was most voted for?

Sorry, try to avoid these types of posts, but made a stupid mistake of putting off catching up on the thread and allowing 200+ posts to go by, and closed it by accident when I did get around to checking it…

No anodizing decision yet.

No emitter decision yet.

You can see the poll results on post #1.

It looks like 5000K temp and xpl-hi is most popular.

Sounds good to me
Saw someone posted they don’t care about anno, so wasn’t sure if more was talked about it or not.

Put me down for one please!!!

I'm in for 1!

Quick question, will this light have a beacon function (a single flash a couple of second apart)?

Beacon: Blink once every N seconds at the last-ramped level. N is configurable.

Yes is the short answer, but you can see the rest of the functions there.

Thanks for the confirmation and info :+1:

Please count me in for 1, can’t beat the price and what you get.

Late to the party but put me on the list for one please.

In for one

I’m also in for one

After 14 months this group buy must be one of the slowest BLF has ever had.
While I am definitely looking forward to it, I think it’ll still be my second choice after the D4. Maybe third choice after the D4 is rereleased in 26650 format…

It has definitely been frustratingly slow. I think it’s pretty close, but at the moment I think it’s hung up on some miscommunication about thermal regulation. I’ve been trying to resolve that for a few weeks, but too much gets lost in translation. It feels like when Ford Prefect wrote an entire detailed guide about how to enjoy planet Earth, and the editor shortened his work to just two words — mostly harmless. It’d be a lot easier if I could talk directly to the engineers at Lumintop instead of going through a communication gatekeeper.

^ It’s still an improvement. It used to just say “harmless,” which arguably is not quite an accurate description of lights like these.

Lumintop people are pretty active on facebook and their english seems ok. Why is it a problem? Have you brought it up to them?

It seems that its been very slow but it looks great. Appreciate the update TK, I love your UIs!

Just taking a guess at it… the one’s active on FaceBook are most likely also the “communication gatekeepers” TK is talking about.

It may be slow, but I agree…. it is looking good!! :+1: . :slight_smile:

In for one!
