    Bought it last deal and couldn't survive without it during last Sydney blackout.

    •  

      The private sector being (profanity) useless again ripping people off as they fail to even provide service.

      In his 2018 report outlining the social and economic disaster that is electricity privatisation, corporate tool Professor Rodney Sims of the ACCC criticised the publically owned grids in Queensland and NSW for spending money on grid maintenance because the douchebag stated that consumers don't mind having blackouts like they have in other states with privately owned grids.

      In other words the properly maintained publically owned grid was making the poorly maintained and more expensive private grid look bad in other states.

      You like having blackouts so private corporations can rip you off right? Crackpot Professor Rodney Sims thinks so.

        So you're saying they should pull the plug on privatisation as it has been a rather dark and negative experience for consumers.

  •  

    Thanks, bought another one after some one stole my first one, now hopefully no one takes this one…

  •  

    Price jacking? I'm pretty sure I checked the price a few days ago and it was around $62.

  •  

    Come across this while watching the review of BLF Q8, it's brighter than the Sun in turbo mode (11,000 Lumens)! but way more expensive…

    Rep, any deal on the Thorfire S70S?. Thanks

    Good price, great light.

    Can anyone recommend a good waterproof torch for use underwater snorkeling?

      Given the fact you stay pretty shallow, you might not need a proper dive light. Something like the Olight S2 might work (rated to 2m depth).

      If you want to go deeper, buy a proper dive light.

    Bought this 2 days ago for $78.20. Can i get a refund for the difference?
    Edit: amazon dealt with it. All good.

    Any recommendations on batteries and a charger?

    oh man i wants, but after batteries and the changer, its gonna end up being around $120…

    :( that's a very soft pass for me.

    This is my great go to torch, now second one on the way, thanks.

    for most applications I don’t need the full 5000 lumens. I probably used closer to 1000 to 2000 lumens for most tasks… 1000 lumen lights seem to be the standard now for slighty larger EDC lights.

    Insanely bright lights are cool but a key chain light (eg. Nitecore Tip) has pretty much all the light you need.

    I would like to be a torch collector but I realised it was a useless hobby.

    • +1 vote

      No, 360 lumens (what the Tip has) is not even close to "all the light you need"!
      More powerful lights like the BLF Q8 have tons of uses, from lighting up paths, lighting up camp sites, searching for animals/people/objects outdoors to lighting up a room in a power outage.

      All things the Tip would be just about useless at.

      • -2 votes

        Have to agree with Cleremy. Until fairly recently almost no one had 360lm+ lights. Their existence doesn’t mean they’re necessary.

        • +1 vote

          Just because you can't think of a use in your own life doesn't mean that many others won't have one. I have one of these and it's regularly used to examine storm damaged buildings in the middle of the night and illuminated large bush areas and parks when searching for missing people. For the purposes, the brighter the better. I can think of a number of other genuine uses in other unrelated roles that would happily use a light like this or better.

    Seems cool but the battery situation seems a massive hassle for most people who aren't already down the 18650 rabbit hole. If it was a USB version with an internal battery (would obviously cost more) I'd be more interested.

    •  

      What you need is the Nitecore EA4.

      Takes 4x AA.

      Forget about USB - who the hell walks around terrifying possums at night with a PC in their lap?

    • +1 vote

      Yep +1, I have a bunch of torches with weird, high capacity/output batteries, and while they are all great, I can never find a charger when I need one. Simple USB (moving to USBC now) is best for travel as you always need a USB charger for phones/ipad/laptops. For around home as above I prefer AA so I can just swap in some eneloops if the torch is out of batteries.

    •  

      I hardly see how $25 (for 2 18650s and a charger)is a "hassle".

      •  

        Even if it is only $25 (and by the sounds of the other thread, it can be substantially more if you get high quality batteries and chargers), that's roughly 50% on top of the torch, plus those batteries work with nothing else I use. So for my use case, a hassle.

  •  

    Any advise what type of 18650 to be used in this flashlight? I am looking at Samsung cell, INR18650 25R or 30Q or 35E.
    Thanks in advance for your input.

        Ooft hope not, very bad choice for many reasons. Likely they won't even work as they are protected. Why on earth would you choose that? 😲

        •  

          Other than a chance of triggering the over current protection, why shouldn't these be used? The NCR18650B are not some cheap low current protected cell.

          4 x NCR18650B will have combined 27.2 (36 max) amps which the Q8 will only draw about half of, so dunno why protection would be a problem.

          I understand the Q8 isn't some dodgy vape pen from china, but Li-ion explosions can and do happen; spectacularly. I'd rather spend more and have safer batteries around.

          •  

            @blueturkey45: So you also overpaid by like $60 but you have your little rant.

            •  

              @Skinnerr: You asked why I did that. I explained, but I will again (or rant).

              Last time I checked they were called 18650, not ‘only usable in the Q8’ batteries. By overpaid you mean bought a better quality product that has more use cases like my vape mods, sure, I overpaid for batteries for the Q8. But I’m not so short sighted.

              With eBay 20% off it was $85 for four with a charger. The 30Q are roughly $10 each and where’s the charger? Let’s say $30 ‘overpaid’, hardly enough to get so dramatic about.

              Perhaps next time you offer advise with ‘many reasons’ for peoples ‘bad choices’ maybe list one or two, but I guess you’d actually need correct information, experience or facts to do that. Well that’s my opinion anyway, but thats what we’re really arguing here isn’t it.

    •  

      I have two sets of 30Q for mine, but I started using Sanyo NCR18650GA (flat tops) for better runtimes. The flat tops are slightly raised, so you don't need to solder blob or put magnets on.

    •  

      Hey peeps, I just found these Samsung 30Q’s button tops & ordered them.
      It’s says on their web page they’re $11.99 each but when you throw in the cart they turn out to be $8.99…anyway, check it out:

    Is this the newer model OP, or the same model as the last deal ?

    •  

      No newer model (it was a community researched and made light) so no new model will happen without their input/everyone knowing.

    Is this good for my doomsday back pack?
    I've been wanting a torch for ages but rarely have need of one. Something about a torch though that I like to have for that one time I'll need it.

      I have a bunch of flashlights including a couple super high lumen can shaped lights like these. While they are super bright, I find them the least useful of all my lights. They're heavy, an annoying shape to carry and don't throw light very far at all. They're great to impress people while out camping, or for sitting on a bench and lighting up a room (bounce light off roof) but other than that they're not very useful.

      I find smaller, lower lumen EDC lights to be far more useful. Lightweight, easy to carry/ pocket and clip to things while still giving you plenty of usable light. I use my Olight S2 Baton, Olight M2R and Skillhunt H03 more than all my other lights put together.

      •  

        "They're heavy, an annoying shape to carry and don't throw light very far at all."
        WTF are you on about?
        Bigger lights usually have bigger reflectors and/or larger light output, both mean longer range than smaller lights!
        If you checked up on this things specs you would know it throws light about 450M (which is a lot more than any of the lights you listed)!

        • +2 votes

          iTaco was asking about having one as a doomsday light, in which case I'd much rather a good EDC than this, as it'd get far more use.

          I have lights I goto when throw is required (Olight Javelot, modded Convoy L2, etc) and those are the ones I'd go to over these awkwardly shaped, super hot running lights as they're made to do that job. All I'm saying is yes it gives off heaps of light, but it'll never be as useful as having a specific light for a specific situation. These never really seem great for any job in my experince, they're no good as an EDC, they're an awkward shape, they're heavy, run hot, are annoying to carry around and are not great at throwing light compared to a dedicated thrower, which I probably should have specified in my comment above.

          Sure you might have a great use for them, but I've never had a reason other than impressing friends while camping or lighting up a room.

    ops forgot the code!!

  •  

    I was going to get some Samsung Q30's but noticed it said button top and most of the Q30's are a flat top, is button top definitely required? I done have some Panasonic NCR18650B batteries but these only have a maximum output of 6.7A, any recommendations ?
