The BLF A6 XPL LED flashlight is $17.95 at Banggood.com until Feb 11th. Free shipping. I bought one a couple weeks ago. I paid a few dollars more and when I went back to check the order status, noticed the price had dropped a bit. Since I haven't gotten mine yet, I can't give a review. But tons of good reviews on the website as well as Budget Light Forum.

Finally received mine after a 5 week wait. Seems very sturdy, it can stand up on the end because the button is recessed. And very bright.

I purchased 2 of these a couple years ago. Thought they were awsome but 3D tint was a little too yellow in a flashlight for me. I then ordered 2 more in the 1A tint. Unfortunately about 4 months in on the second purchase the switch started to act up such that it would never turn the light off. It cycled through the modes but wouldn't turn off. I could switch the tail piece to other lights and it did the same thing. Of course a known working tail piece worked fine on the other light proving to me that it is that one tail piece that was faulty.

I took the circuit board out of the tail piece to inspect for bad soldering and wrapped it with electrical tape to insulate frame tube. I found a service contract and sent an email. Bottom line is they said it wasn't under warranty and I would have to buy a new part. I couldn't ever find how to pick the piece so at 25% rate I swore I wouldn't buy again. At $18 I bought again.

That one lives in my tool box and I just unscrew the tail a bit to turn it off

I gave one to my son for Christmas once and he still comments on how good it is.

I bought The nitecore charger. I'm sure there are many good charges but this one does every thing for me. Gave a 2 slot model to my son.

Ordered one on 12/28

Still haven't seen it.

The tracking link on my order does absolutely nothing.

This is in every way the best under $30 LED flashlight i have.

I have over a dozen flashlights from the past few years and this is by far the best quality on every point.
Finish. brightness. function. accessories. modes. value.

It has a true hard anodized finish like the high end lights and unlike all the under $30 junk online everywhere. It has been very durable so far with no signs of wear like all my other cheapies did after a few weeks.
It's brighter than all the others I have for around this price and has a more even pattern with no rings or strange colors. I think its because of the dimpled reflector.
Its got a smaller head than the other cheapies I have. The head and base are a slim diameter which makes it easier to carry and handle. Its basically the same size as the tube that holds the 18650 battery about less than an inch thick. My other lights have a larger head which are more bulky and are not as bright.
It comes with extra orings and switch cover and has an adjustable quick connect cord you can attach to the tail.
It has more modes than my others also. It can be toggled several different ways. I have played with the modes and once I got used to how it worked, it was pretty smart.

I bought a second one a few weeks ago since the first one was so nice.

* it took almost a month to get my second one so if you are in a huge hurry, this may not be the place to buy a flashlight. For me it was worth the wait as the best light I have even close to the price. I think anything under $30 is a steal for this thing.

I ordered two of these. The first one took a couple of weeks and the second over a month to arrive. I think they were worth it. Far better brightness and quality than ALL the other cheap LED lights I have bought over the last few years even some for way more $.

At first I was frustrated with the tracking not working and was ready to contact them for a refund. I got an email that day stating it had shipped and got within a few days.

In my opinion it was worth the wait. I have been buying flashlights for years and this is better quality in every aspect and brighter than all of them evn at double the price. I have a giant $90 light that is brighter, but still not even close to the build quality of this one.

Hey, check out my former deal post for battery and charger recommendations (linked below). To add to the chargers, I recently picked up the Miller ML106 V1.0 Micro USB Power Bank Charger For Li-ion Battery, and it seems great so far.

This light is interchangeable with many Astrolux parts. If you don't want to replace the circuit in the tailcap, they sell complete tailcaps. Just screw it on and you should be good to go.

This is an awesome light and it's tough to find anything that comes close without spending $40 or more. Unlike so many other lights, the 1600 lumen claim is reasonable here (with the right battery and especially with a spring bypass). For me, the 3D tint is ideal. While the cool white 1A tint might give a tiny bit more output, the 3D will give everything a much more natural color.

My issue isn't the wait.
If my order had said, expect 90 days for delivery I'd be fine with that.
My order said, expected arrival 1/18
When I attempt to contact them, nothing happens.
I spend plenty of time on budget light forum. I have plenty of lights. I have no question of the quality of the light.

Why not give realistic information and at least attempt to communicate.

I already have several ThorFire C8s. Feed seems better on the ThorFire, even say it's brighter.

I got this one and it is really impressive. You will not find a better flashlight for the price. Just look at some youtube videos on this flashlight and you will be blown away. But remember to read the instructions and enable memory mode because memory mode is not enabled by default. And if you want an even crazier bright flashlight, look for the Emisar D4 XPL-HI. I have the 4000k 5D version with floody optics. OMG, best flashlight in the world!
