Sofirn C01S AAA Flashlight Review (three versions)

A while back Sofirn released a tiny little AAA light.  No TIR, no reflector…. basically a bare 5mm led (ok there was a tiny cone reflector built in but it did approximately nothing.)  It was awesome, and it was the Sofirn C01.  

But it lacked.  It had only one mode and the beam was useful for a limited set of circumstances.  Fortunately Sofirn updated that light – same body but with a TIR, a two mode twisty UI, and importantly, a different emitter.  Here’s my testing of that light, the Sofirn C01S.

Sofirn C01 Single Mode, Yuji High CRI, AAA Flashlight Review

BLF has conspired yet again to design a light that it’s impossible to not want.  This time it’s a tiny AAA light, made by Sofirn, with a Yuji emitter, and very high CRI.  The single mode is very low output, but with very long runtimes, and two temperatures available.    It’s also very inexpensive!
