Does anybody know to get the Zanflare T1 lantern. I know it’s discontinued however I want a replacement one.
It is not available anymore, you’re some years too late. You can just hope for a used one.
Recently a very similar and most likely better lantern was released by Sofirn, the LT1s:
If you’re willing to pay the price:
For a Prime member, it knocks $5 off. IIRC, $15 was what originally GearBest charged for the T1.
I bought a couple with “Minpory” branding when they dropped to $10, but those, and the “OHLUX” are NLA.
These all come from the same factory. Look closely at the photos, and it’s evident that the Zanflare logo hasn’t been completely removed, and remnants still show.

Every information you can find is collected here:
Single 18650, adjustable colour temp, ramping brightness, red LED setting.
Does anyone have one of these yet? Seems to be the sort of thing that would generate some hype here. Only ‘review’ I can find is a slightly shilly Reddit post.
A friend used my Zanfare T1 lantern and wants to buy one. But Gearbest wants $29.99 + $14.00 shipping and that’s too much. Is there an alternative budget lantern? The person liked the ramping and color changes.
Are there any lanterns out right now like the t1? I need it to be touch button and I don’t want to cycle through all the colors. The t1 is my most used light at night and want more but they are discontinued anyone with any options or ideas please let me know.
I`ve been collecting camp lanterns since 2015 or 2014, and this is sort of illumination that I use most. So i`ve tested almost all the good brand stuff and a lot of budget ones. And, guys, this stuff is best deal for price that I met since then.
though Gearbest stopped selling this model some years ago, looks like you can buy it at Amazon
here with only difference in a name
- LED type: SMD2835
- LED quantity: 82
- Max. lumens output: 350LM
- Min. lumens output: 3LM
- Power rating: 4…
- Ok so i have this lantern now since the end of July to test & use it, & give my views on it in this mini-review & thoughts on this lantern.
UPDATES: read my last two posts about the first one failed after a mod attempt, then a second factory T1 a friend had failing. ( Posts # 161 and #162)
For a stock factory lantern i give it a 7/10 rating, which is not bad compared to the majority of LED lanterns we see in stores, especially in this price range, (but one hazardous flaw was found recently)

That minipory was a good deal .
I had that bookmarked when it popped up 4 months ago and then it popped more up a couple months ago ...and I'm guessing that's all folks .
My zanflare T1 failed to tint ramp almost day one but everything else works fine .I contacted gearbest but that was when they were waning and it didn't yeild and reasonable response so I just shrugged it off .
Kicking myself for not grabbing a couple more when I could ...A swing ...and a miss

Good comparison. We have half a dozen T1 at home and love them. Got the LT1S the other day and pretty happy with it. 21700 so better capacity, three levels of red which is the main LED I use in both.
