Are you ready for the BIG one? Strap yourself in, because THIS is the 5000 lumen BLF Q8! A marvel in flashlight technology. And a marvel in PERSONAL customization 🙂 Box & Accessories With a flashlight as substantial as this, you have to expect a little less in the way of accessories.
So from the picture, you can probably see that the only extras are a small baggy containing THREE spare o-rings, a spare switch cover, and TWO product manuals. What’s it All About — BLF? BLF is the acronym for “Budget Light Forum”.
The Q8, is a collaborative effort between BLF members, and “” — a quality flashlight manufacturer, to produce a flashlight that not only serves its owners to their satisfaction, BUT, can also be completely customized, so each user gets their OWN experience out of it! Stats & Features. Cree XP-L HD V6 3D LED’s Let’s begin with the basics; • Weight; (including batteries) 20 oz! Batteries go this way Seeing that part of the method for operating the BLF Q8 is a bit challenging to explain, I’ve included some photos of the manual. There are also configuration settings within each setting option. These allow you to set Moonlight to one of seven different values.
In addition, you can adjust the thermal temperature of the light, which dictates how warm (or hot) it’ll get before it automatically ramps down as a means of cooling itself. By default, it’s set to drop after reaching 55° Celsius. To read the COMPLETE manual on the BLF site;. So basically there are TWO settings to choose from. The first, which is also the factory default is identified as “Smooth Ramping”. This is the setting that I prefer. The second is called “Mode Set”.
This includes many different settings, including two, which act the way a regular flashlight will with standard modes of low, medium, high, etc This is what I meant when I said it’s highly customizeable. As soon as the Q8 is powered on, the switch button illuminates in green then goes off. However, each time the light is turned off, the green illumination returns, and stays LIT, until you switch the flashlight ON again. There are FIVE blinking (emergency) modes on the BLF Q8. Flashlight base • Strobe • Police Strobe • Bicycle Flash • Fast Beacon • Slow Beacon Now, if parasitic drain (on the batteries) concerns you, it really shouldn’t. It’s been noted that the Q8 can stay in “standby” mode (with the button lit) for several years, before draining all FOUR batteries!
However if the green light drives you completely berserk, there are three ways to shut it off. The first being the most obvious; just loosen the battery compartment a hair, and it goes out. If that’s something you’re not likely to remember you’ve done, the next time you need light then perform the next way in which to shut it off. Here, you’ll start with the light OFF.
Now press and hold the switch until ‘moonlight’ appears. The SECOND it comes on, click the switch again. If you did it fast enough, the flashlight will be OFF as well as the green indicator.
