Is there any information or review yet on the new SP33 V3 ?
The main differences I see so far are:
the addition of built-in USB (type C) charging
the significantly increased peak brightness from 2500 to 3500 lumens
the different stainless steel bezel/head design
It’s not often a seller writes “Do not order”
The listing classifies its battery type as 18650, but the product listing offers only “25560” battery purchase option as its “Emitting color”. I hope it maintains the V2’s ability to use both 18650 and 26650.
I’m new to fancy lights (my only light is a Sipik SK68 with AA, which I still quite like for for it is), and don’t have any Sofirn yet, but this new SP33 and the SP40 are now on my wishlist. The USB charging seems particularly practical.
I like the styling of the SP33 much more than the EC01 but EC01 has the “advantage” of being a more compact 21700. Also for muggles, the SP33 has a much simpler fool proof UI. Everytime I lend my Anduril flashlights to muggles, they always end up in some blinky operations.
I modded the SP33v2 with 4xE21A and the tint was magnificent. Does anyone know if the SP33 uses 3v or 6v XHP50.2?
@Lux-Perpetua Thanks for those details! This forum is better than the product descriptions.
@RobinVC Where did they announce? I searched before posting but didn’t find anything. Great point on the Astrolux EC01, that is also a contender. The regular pricing seems pretty similar except that the EC01 is on sale now at BangGood. Another difference is the EC01 has an 5000K option.
@SKV89 Anduril as an open-source third-party firmware sounds really cool to play with, but as a muggle myself I like simplicity. The SP40’s UI seems perfect to me if it just added a moonlight mode accessible from off, plus maybe a nice “breathing” mode like the SC31(b).
