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 SP40 Headlamp Review

Today I have in for review a neat headlamp by Sofirn.  This marks their first headlamp design!  It’s an 18650 light with an e-switch on the head end, and on-board charging.  Quite a release as a first headlamp!  Read on for testing.

Sofirn SP33 v2 Flashlight Review

Another Sofirn light!  This is one there are already many reviews of, but I still hope you’ll find my thoughts (and more likely, data) on the light to be useful.  It’s a XHP50.2, 26650 light – a fairly uncomplicated light.

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!

Sofirn C8F 21700 Flashlight Review

Today I have in for review a light I’ve been looking forward to (and pestering Sofirn for) for a long while now: The C8F 21700.  I reviewed the original C8F (and that review didn’t go so well).  Sofirn responsively made some changes to the light, and now it uses a 21700 cell instead of a 18650, and I think generally has some build quality improvements.  Read on to see if that pans out!

Sofirn Q8 Flashlight Review

I already reviewed this light once.  That time, it was the BLF Q8.  I liked that light then.  I saw that Sofirn had a version of that light, and it was rumored that they manufactured the original BLF Q8, so I wanted to see if this version was “close enough.”  Read on to find out!

Sofirn C8F Flashlight Review

Sofirn sent out a bunch of messages recently asking for reviewers. I was one of the recipients, and I agreed to review this C8 variant, the C8F. It’s a C8, yes, but a triple! I was interested. I like a triple. 🙂
