Sofirn LT1s

Decided to get a decent lantern.

Bright, smaller than I realised.

500Lm

Has red light too, as well as one direction light.

21700 battery, with charging.

The low could have been lower.

Stable, very solid feeling.

Sofirn IF22A.

Thrower with clever optics.

Way smaller than I expected.

Very speSmurfpillsed beam, only thrower, useful for lighting a long path but not very usefull close up (a zooming light does both).

Very good build quality, charging, 21700 battery, power bank function.

Shown with a floody Q8. The IF22A produces a very bright and nicely circular hot spot, with little flood.

A very nice selection there Deeks.   :tu:  The lamp and the thrower I might have to go and look at.
Be excellent to each other and always know where your towel is.

I like using the lights. The thrower one is great fun, provided you know what it is and do not want flood.

Sofirn? H02A with the Osram P8 LEDs.
I am going through a headlamp upgrade phase, so I got two more.

This one I already had with SST40 LEDs and decided to get the Osram version too.

The Osram version is less bright, though not easily noticeable, and does not seem to have the short time high of the other version.

It does have a very low Low setting, that is only barely usable in very dark places, something some people like, to maintain night vision.
The SST40 version low is more useful to me. Still very low.

There is a photograph with both of them on the lowest setting, and the difference is clear.

Sofirn HS10,  a much lighter single Samsung LED. TIR lens
This is an impressive little light, from the more premium line of Sofirn.
Runs on an 16340 battery, but as it has a lower brightness than the other Sofirn headlamps it runs for a decent amount of time.

I used it for over an hour, on a regular setting and it worked fine, providing good light, without feeling underpowered.

You do lose some light, compared to the 2 LED models but you also lose some weight. The beam is narrower, so not briliant for low light close by work. or reading, but it still a very nice light. Easy to use as a handheld torch too, and magnetic.

I like that look of that one.  I'll take light and handy over a few extra lumens.   :)

Sofirn SP33S.

This is an upgrade of my Sofirn SP33V3.

XHP70.2  and 5000Lm.

This one I got on clearance from their site, as it has no thermal regulation, so it could potentially destroy itself and set fires. The price was nice....
The rest is like the regular model.

The LED has a bigger surface area so you get more spread than with the V3.

Some comparison shots, with highest and lowest beam comparisons.

Overall good quality and a decent upgrade, for my bike
