Supfire A2. Supfire's cute little zoom 18650 side switch.

Every time I read Supfire, I misread it as Supbeam. I’d like a Supbeam/Acebeam…

Anyone’s got any experience with this A2 yet? I’m curious.

Not a fan of zoomies but this looks really interesting.

I am afraid it will be pricey and I really don’t know if I like the idea of an 18650 charger built in… I do have a BD03 and it has not nuked on me yet.

I would be more interested if it did not have the stinkin’ blinkin’ going on. :slight_smile:


I like the looks of it …I’d like it to be 7$ …….:stuck_out_tongue:

I’ll buy a handful at seven bucks … seven is a much luckier number

The only reason I found this light is because my customers are very annoying. 90% of them are stuck in the old mag light days with the whole concept of focusing an incandescent bulb. They always come to me and pick up lights I sell. They start to take the head off a convoy s2+ or c8 and ask if it focuses. I say “no sorry” and they start to walk away. Then I show them an inferior sk98 and tell them that this light focuses. Their eyes light up and they buy it. I try to tell them that the s2 and c8 are better with reflectors. But they do not care about or understand a reflector light. Then they bitch if the sk98 doesn’t have a built in charger. Ugghhh. So if this A2 is built better than a sk98 then it will solve my problems. I think most of the sk98 are junk but my customers do not care. And I’m tired of getting shipments of sk98 with lattice bright leds. I have probably gone through 300 sk98 at this point.

Supfire has always produced some decent lights. I never liked their cheap glossy anodizing that they put on a majority of their lights. We will see how this A2 does.

I’m sure Richard at could get a shipment of these and offer a good price without the unprotected supfire 18650

I had bad luck with this solarstorm starry light ex01. The usb charging worked but the green and red warning lights quit working properly . And the anodizing was very cheap and glossy.

I hope it has memory or always starts on low/high. I really hate next mode bs.

Looks like it has those really cheap dust and side switch covers too. Those things shear/fall/tear off with the lightest use.

There is a non-zoom version A5 for Supfire but the quality is not as good.

Are there any other nice little zoomy’s out there for under $20? Or… Maybe this isn’t the right question for this thread? If not, just ignor my question:)

I feel your pain brother. The only lights i’ve been really selling are green c8’s for blood tracking. Other than hunters, I can’t find many people interested in a premium (Convoy) light.

Just ordered one from here: Will take a while, but I'll post bout it.

Please, when you get the light, let us know the UI (low to high or high to low) and does it have memory.

Hope someone can do a BG and then put in a better driver and XP-L HI in it. Been looking for a good zoomie for awhile.

No one has this yet?

Mine is not in yet. It’s tracking # is RF387292563SG. says it arrived in the US on the 20th, but no further updates. USPS never heard of this tracking #.

Just ordered one of these. Now just have to wait 4-6 weeks for it to arrive.

I don’t really need USB charging and am not a fan of the standard 5-mode UI. Goal will be to possibly use it as a mod host.

If it could be mod, it would be great with an efficient driver.

Yeah. I tend to like overpowered ultra-compact lights. If possible, plan would be something along the following:

  • Replace driver with 17mm FET e-switch driver from Mtn Electronics
  • Replace stock switch mechanism with a tiny microswitch (I have a bag of them on-hand).
  • Consider shortening pill or moving driver mounting so driver can sit closer to emitter. Goal is to open up as much space in the battery compartment as possible.
  • Ideally battery should run completely below the switch with no wasted space.
  • If successful in opening up additional space in head-end of battery compartment, shorten body tube using human lathe method.
  • Replace emitter with XPL HI
  • File down back of head and top of pill so lens can retract closer to emitter dome. This makes the light more compact and gives a wider floodbeam without affecting the spotbeam.

The stock light is 125mm long. This is too big for my pocket EDC. Ideally I’d like to shorten that to 90-95mm.
