5.0 out of 5 stars Great torch for size and brightness!
By Terry on 23 November 2020
This is a great torch for the price and size. You won’t find a torch that comes with the 26650 battery for this price.

I’ve used it for a few days now and love the portability of this torch. It is much brighter than my other torches of similar size and it’s also easy to recharge as you won’t need an external charger.

I would recommend this torch for anyone who wants a torch that is small and powerful. This torch also comes with high quality retail packaging making this a great item for gifting.

Reviewed in Canada on 20 March 2021
Excellent build quality compact flashlight with a modern interface.
This baby is bright in turbo mode and is only warm but not hot after an hour.
Love the two user interfaces, a preset set step brightness one and a continuous variable brightness one.
Refreshing to find a seller with a battery that excesses it claimed capacity, the 26650 was stated at 5500 mah and my Xtar dragon measured 5759 mah on the first cycle. No doubt it will be much higher after a couple of cycles.
Compact enough to fit a jacket pocket yet versatile enough for most needs.
Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars version 3 of the venerable SP33
Reviewed in the United States on 17 June 2020
My newest addition to the Sofirn family is the SP33v3. I've got the v1, and the new niceties of the v3 had me curious, so of course I had to get one. :D

The light comes in a colorful orange and black, but otherwise nondescript, retail box. It has the Sofirn logo and visuals, and a sticker on the back gives the product name. Inside is a formed clear plastic tray housing the light and all goodies, as well as a multilingual product manual insert. Included are a glassine envelope with lanyard and extra O-rings, the usb-C charging cable, and adapter sleeve to be able to use an 18650 cell in a pinch. The version I got (kit) comes with a nice 5000mAH 26650 cell in Sofirn livery. I haven't checked/tested the cell in an analysing charger yet, but all Sofirn cells I got to date have met or exceeded the rated capacity, so I have no doubt this one also clocks in at least 5000mAH.

The SP33 is a single 26650 light which is a bit thicker than typical 18650 lights. The difference is that 18650 cells are 18mm in diameter, whereas 26650 cells are 26mm in diameter, which sounds like a big difference but not really. The SP33 is a meaty light with good heft to it, but fits *very* comfortably in the hand. It's heavier than most 18650 lights, and while I wouldn't everyday-carry one in a pants pocket, it certainly would be doable in a jacket pocket, or kept as an around-the-house light. In fact, the diameter and placement of the sideswitch gives it near-perfect "hand-feel". Anyone who's got a WK30 or similar light knows this quite well.

The SP33 uses a 3V version of the Cree XHP50.2 and a FET driver. That means that output is unregulated and drops proportionately as the cell voltage drops, but potentially allows more output in "turbo" with a fully-charged cell. Me personally, I prefer regulated output (as in the v1 and probably the v2), even if maximum output isn't as high. If you keep the cell fully charged and need/use "turbo" levels often, you'll like the v3 better. I believe that's 3500lm for the v3 vs 2500lm for the v1/v2, so the choice is yours.

The beam from the '50.2 is pretty smooth, but still exhibits the "Cree rainbow", ie, white hotspot, yellow corona, bluer spill. It's not too bad, though, and doesn't have any bullseyes or other artifacts. White-wall hunting, it's noticeable, but in real life, not really. Brightness in a light this size is quite impressive. Use ceiling-bounce and hit turbo, and it's as bright or brighter than flicking on the room lights. Rated 3500lm? I believe it. :D

The UI isn't a "standard" one like Narsim or Andouille, but for simple operations it's close. I went right to ramping vs stepped, because it's just a naturally wider range of output, and you dial in the brightness you want. In stepped mode, the jump is from 1lm on moonlight to 150lm on low. If you want only, say, 10-20lm, then 1lm would be way too low, and 150lm way too high. So ramping lets you get the perfect amount of light you want/need.

A quick rundown of the UI in ramping mode is that it's simple click-on and click-off. Doubleclick gets you to turbo, tripleclick to strobe, and quadclick will switch between ramping/stepped if on, else locked-out if off.

In stepped mode, you click on, then hold the button to cycle between low/medium/high. Press'n'hold from off for moonlight, doubleclick for turbo.

In ramped mode, you can *directly* run the full gamut from moonlight to turbo via ramping. Clicking on, the light often eats a press'n'hold, so if the light doesn't brighten/dim when you do it, just let go and press'n'hold again and it will. I haven't found if it's a timing issue (eg, having to wait 3sec or whatever) or some other reason, but just keep that in mind.

The SP33 comes with a variety of goodies. As above, there's a lanyard, extra O-rings, usb-C charging cable, and 18650 adapter sleeve. The manual recommends only 26650s and 21700s, but 18650s can be used in a pinch. Just don't (you read that right: *don't*) use protected cells whose protection circuits can cut out if you crank it up to turbo. The light has built-in protection, so protected cells are unnecessary.

Fit and finish on the light is great. Flawless ano, no dings anywhere, not even a hint of dust behind the front glass, etc. A nice stainless-steel bezel crowns the front of the light. Diamond-cut knurling is grippy without "bite". The '50.2 is perfectly centered in the reflector. The button, Sofirn name + model, and the bacon-in-a-triangle symbol are all aligned, all nice attention to detail.

Directly opposite the switch is the charging port covered with the usual rubber flap. It's nice and thick, not flimsy at all, and seems to seal well with a nice firm press. The switch light flashes red while charging, turns blue when finished. Simple!

The light tailstands quite nicely, and the recess at the end would fit a nice beefy 1" magnet in case you'd want it to stick to metal surfaces.

All in all, wow! :D Great light, built-in charging, hella bright as well, and while I'd sacrifice some brightness to get full regulation, lumen-hounds will certainly appreciate the extra 1000lm. Add to that full ramping from moonlight all the way to turbo, and you got a great all-around light for house, car, *anywhere*. Color me impressed. :D

Reviewed in the United States on 30 August 2020
I really like this. all aspects are well thought out. It's definitely going to become my new primary camping flashlight, but could easily be someone's only flashlight for emergencies, camping, defense, car, home, etc. 

LED/Reflector: This is the real story. The combination of an XHP 50.2, which puts out a lot of light, with the midsize, lightly textured, orange peel reflector makes for a perfect balance between flood and throw. 

Mode spacing and brightness: I like to use the ramping. It goes from 1 lumen to 3,500 lumens. Long press from off to go direct to moonlight which is enough to walk around a dark apartment or find things in a tent, and double click direct to turbo which is a huge amount of light. 

SS Bezel: The stainless steel bezel is an excellent touch. It's solid enough for self-defense but doesn't look too "aggressive", and has just enough space to see if you've left it on and placed it head down on a table or something. 

Size/battery: This is a lot of flashlight in a smallish package. It really doesn't feel much bigger overall than most 18650 flashlights but the 26650 battery has a lot more power storage. Good flat top battery included.

Tail stand: Tail stands well and good lanyard attachment. Lanyard is included. Remember to tighten both the head and tail after taking out the plastic spacer to turn it on the first time. 

Waterproofing: Works submerged in water. Though I'm not sure it's recommended. Refer to the IPX rating for details. See pics 

Charging/indicator/button: Charges fast. Power indicator is clear. Button is well indexed and has a nice click. Charging wire is included. 

Heat: It handles heat well. No issues.

Reviewed in the United States on 16 September 2020
The Sofirn SP33v3 is a CREE based single cell hand sized search flashlight capable of hosting 2 battery sizes: 26650 (default) and 18650 (using adapter). This has model has enjoyed enough of a success that Sofirn has now released version 3, sporting an XHP50.2 LED emitter. NOTE: While the SP33v3 can also support an unprotected 21700 cell, Sofirn does not officially endorse this and cautions owners (depending on the cell, it could create a short). Only 26650 batteries can be recharged inside the SP33v3.

Version 3 improvements:
* XHP50.2 (original was XP-L)
* 3V LED FET driver, replacing previous 6V LED with boost driver
* Built-in USB-C charging, replacing USB-Micro
* Simplified charging/status indicators (Blue/Red, vs. Green/Orange/Red)
* Power on shows battery charge status for 5 seconds (Blue—good, Red—poor, Red-flash—critical).
* LVP – low votage protection
* Improved temperature regulation
* Improved UI
* Thicker stainless steel bezel
* Limited unprotected 21700 battery support (there may be a risk of short circuit)

On the technical side, this flashlight uses a FET based driver (Field Effect Transistor) allowing maximum utilization of the LED emitter capabilities, tempered with PWM (pulse width modulation). The design is well done so there is no visible PWM (flicker). However, note that a FET driver design means brightness decreases with lowering battery voltage instead of maintaining constant brightness selected. Each driver type has its uses (buck, boost, FET, 7135, linear, etc.). I’m particularly fond of the FET type for my uses.

Body Design:
This has a rather iconic shape for a hand sized thrower—head, body, and tail cap components. The head has a beveled shape to it that helps a bit with anti-roll, and adorned with a nice thick stainless steel bezel (not crenelated, but has some gaps for heat venting if head standing). The body has diamond type knurling that provides excellent grip. The tail cap is seamlessly mated to the body and features slots for a lanyard or ring, plus perfectly flat edging for easy tail standing. It has a good quality spring for solid battery contact. No surface hot spots (sharp edges) that I could find anywhere. All components are mated using square threading that is lubricated. Mated tube edging is smooth & nicely rounded.

User Interface:
These days a lot of attention is being paid to the UI of LED flashlights, going well beyond simple ON/OFF and brightness control. Probably the most highly regarded UI’s today are the Anduril and NarsilM UI’s, which afford a significant amount of programmable flexibility. But not everybody needs this level of control. Sometimes simple is preferred. Sofirn developed their own UI that permits both stepped and progressive ramping modes, plus several mode shortcuts. It’s really nicely done.

* On/Off is accessed by a single click, as opposed to double-clicks or press-hold on many other flashlights with rich UI settings.
* Stepped mode has 5 levels including moonlight. Modes go from low to turbo, the PROPER progression (as opposed to starting from high to low).
* Mode memory is provided, remembering the last mode used prior to off (except for Turbo, so you don’t accidentally blind yourself).
* Press-hold from off turns on moonlight mode, which is also a reasonable low that is eye safe.
* Double-click from off engages turbo.
* Triple-click engages strobe (which is a varying oscillation type).
* Electronic lockout is toggled with four clicks. While in lockout, momentary low mode is provided.
* Physical lockout is possible with a slight turn of the tail cap or head.

Charging:
The 26650 cell charges reasonably fast from nearly flat, on DC5V 2A. While charging, the LED flashes red, then changes to solid blue when done. If there is a battery contact problem, it will flash red erratically a few times, then blue, then red again, so it’s easy to notice (it’ll happen if you forget to take out the battery contact blocker). The LED is a reasonable brightness so you can see it in moderate light, but it won’t light up the room at night. Importantly, the circuitry protects the battery from overcharging, and there is LVP (low voltage protection).

Electronic Switch:
It’s a very good quality metal covered switch that is fairly flush to the body. It can be a little tricky to find just from feel, but the rubber charging port cover is on the exact opposite side, which helps with orientation. The click sound is soft and not annoying in any way, with a good tactile sensation.

Comparison:
For comparison purposes, I decided to choose my old Nitecore EA4 Pioneer flashlight, because of a relatively similar size & form factor. Both feature electronic switches, a similar diameter reflector, and similar throw distance. The EA4 is running a CREE XM-L U2, and 4xAA cells. Nitecore has upgraded the EA4 with the EA41 (XM-L2 U2).

At this point I have to say the winner is clearly the Sofirn SP33v3. While it’s just a little taller than the EA4 (EA41), it has a better grip, switch, and UI. Plus… the gobs of 3500lm is astounding. The EA41 is spec’ed to reach 335M while the SP33v3 goes to 269M, but the copious spill of the SP33v3 makes it seem to go further. Plus runtime on turbo is pretty much the same. The EA41 has one advantage in moonlight, being lower (at 1 lumen) and longer (400h).

Heat management:
Heat management on the SP33v3 is OK. It still can get rather hot to the touch, but it’s a gradual progression that’s longer than some similar pocket-rocket flashlights such as the Lumintop FW3A and FW21 Pro. It features something called ATR (Advanced Temperature Regulation). The light will step down to prevent overheating, but thermal regulation isn’t very steady. It’s not shockingly visible to the naked eye, but graphs from other people’s tests show dramatic swings. But, this is in tests with the light running continuously for a long period.

Beam / Output:
Beam profile is quite good. There is a noticeable corona with tint shift on lower settings, which you’ll only notice if doing close-range “white wall” use (it washes out as beam intensity is ramps up). Since this flashlight is designed for mostly mid to high power use, it’s a non-issue. The hotspot is well defined without a sharp delineation, accompanied by a generous spill. The tint is cool at 6000k, but something about the XHP50.2 makes it lean more towards neutral than ice blue. I prefer the XHP50.2 tint over the XM-L2 U2. Moonlight is rated at 1lm, but it appears to be ever so slightly brighter (2lm). Still easy on the eyes.

Conclusion:
I wasn’t really in the market to get a new search style flashlight, but I had the opportunity to buy this at a discount and thought it would be worthwhile to at least try it. Overall, I think it is an excellent value for the price. I do wish thermal regulation was more stable, which comes into play with long periods of use on higher output levels. Sofirn has clearly demonstrated that it has definitely joined the mainstream producers of respectable quality LED flashlights. Their other models are also worth looking at. I’m particularly taken with the tremendous throw/value proposition of the SP70.
