The Sofirn SP31 UV (Ultraviolet) 18650 flashlight has been available for a little while and I got my hands on one! I seem to have gone from not having any UV lights for years, to having multiple on my desk all at once! Read on for some thoughts and testing.
I hope 2020 has been a great year for you! It’s been a great gear year, that’s for certain. Notably we got a redesigned TorchLAB BOSS, with many advancements there. We also saw more widespread acceptance of USB-C charging, and emitters like the Samsung LH351d helped us have the best of many good aspects a flashlight can offer.
Sofirn dropped the SC31 Pro Andúril not long ago, and I finally got my hands on on. It’s notable because it’s a very low cost Andúril light! Read on for some thoughts and testing.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
