No probs! They're not all mine; Marco does the bulk of them, but I've got about 20 up there now. Trying to finish off a Nitecore TINI2...

Reviewer here! Please note though that this was before I had anything to do with Sofirn in an "associated" sense, I do realise that it...

Not a problem! Glad you've got it working. Let it charge fully to 4.2V and see how you go. To reiterate though, once the light is on,...

Hmmm. I mean I've got lots of ideas, but I don't think many people have the kind of electronics setup I do at home. I'd be checking the...

Hmm. Dang. I made a quick album: https://imgur.com/a/rEFOHZr It mainly comes down to electrical contact, and then voltage of the cell. At...
06/01/2021 - 14:13
Okay, I think I get it. When you’ve got it plugged in, it’ll still work - it’s taking voltage from the charger and using it. It...

Check my comment just above - make sure all electrical contacts are clean and free. I’ll take some pics soon to show where I’d be...

Okay, if there’s nothing stuck to either end of the battery, make sure everything is nice and tight. Failing that, clean up the...

Full ramp isn’t the whole brightness - once the light is on, double-click for turbo :) it might not be that much brighter though. The...

Yep, SP36 and SC31 Pro out of AU stock. They get snapped up pretty quick!
06/01/2021 - 08:23
I got one of the “budget” ones direct from China, a little over 200. Battery was about 15 or so. Still a decent heft of cash, but...

Weird! I get this: https://i.imgur.com/eL112gg.jpg

Haha thanks! 1lumen is someone else’s site, I just write reviews for it. But realistically, mainly for fun. There’s a few that I rotate...

Not sure where you’re seeing that - the three items OP linked are all AU stock.
05/01/2021 - 21:05
*raises hand* Reviewer here. I still use it quite a bit. I ended up getting another one and throwing some XPL HI in it for shits and...

I'd been refreshing every few seconds and it didn't come up with the lightning price at all. What a crock of shit.
29/11/2020 - 09:02
Yep, bought it a bit ago and didn't realise it was from the CN warehouse. AU warehouse said $55, but then when I click on it, it goes...

One note, the FW1A is the new reflector (the from the FW1A Pro), and has a bit less throw than the old one. Not that it's going to change...

MK39 is gone; they had both NW and CW when I looked and I was weighing it up :(
28/10/2020 - 19:29
I believe more will be sent to AU warehouses - will update when they arrive if I'm told there's a deal on (sorry I can't be more specific...
27/10/2020 - 21:13
XL all gone; most other colours/sizes seem to be $44.
18/10/2020 - 17:07
Thanks mate, glad to know it works. If I ever got into water deeper than a bathtub, I'd get one...

~~Bribery~~ donations, amirite? Considering he did the exact same to all the other small stores. Oh well.
15/10/2020 - 21:47
It'd be nice if it automatically multiplied all the prices by 1.1 after the exchange rate to show what we actually pay... I still blame the...
15/10/2020 - 19:42
Okay, email response I got: "All the SP40 headlamp are with the magnetic tailcap" I think worst case, if it came without the magnetic...
15/10/2020 - 19:40
I don't think it is; I'm also not sure if the threading is the same. I should get my hands on a v2 one day to compare.
15/10/2020 - 13:06
Stock is in China, vs AmazonAU stock. I do also recognise that there's also choice of colour temperature on AliExpress.
15/10/2020 - 12:26
A lot of the enthusiast community really can't stand 6500K, it's just too harsh a white, with the beginnings of a blue tinge. My personal...
