Thread: Any word yet on Firefoxes FF5?

    Default Any word yet on Firefoxes FF5?

    Just wondering if anyone has heard any rumors or facts about Firefoxes making an FF5. Seems like it should be just around the corner and LEDs are catching up to HIDs quick!

    Does anyone know the warranty info on these Firefoxes? I can never get an answer, and there is no website.

    I am not sure of the warranty but having used the FF4 in the past for awhile i can assure you the quality is top notch and from the photos iv seen of the FF5 the quality took a big step up. I am excited for this one.

    Just received a reply from the guy selling the Firefoxes FF-5. There is a 12 month manufacturer warranty.

    Was it Neil, the actual vendor, who replied back with the warranty information?

    unfortunately theirs not multiple places to order the FF5 from as far as i can tell. Neilsgadgets is the only place i found it for sale on. I ordered mine yesterday. It says expected ship date is around July 30th and he told me it would ship via DHL Express. so far so good. He replied to all my questions within a few hours yesterday.

    I remember years ago i ordered the FF4 in a group buy run by form member LIPS. I cant find anything about him and the new FF5

    The old website for Fire-Foxes is now a non flashlight related bulletin board.
    Does anyone know if the old company that produced the FF3 and FF4 has changed their name or merged with another company?

    I just did a search for this thing and found this site with lots of photos. This thing looks freaking incredible!!! 10,000 lumens with 2000m throw! I doubt we will even see that kind of performance with LED flashlights in another 5 years. And that tint is incredible! Any idea what CRI it is? Any one know how long does it take for it to light up from a cold start? I never used one of these.

    Selling flashlights is almost as hard as raising children, lol! I'm not involved and it's much easier cost wise to sell from overseas. I sent message to guy who made the previous versions FF4 - FF3 etc. to see if he is behind the new FF5. I'll report back if he answers or says anything.

    Start up time is listed as 5 seconds. That's quick for hid

    Well for $260 Priority Mail shipped, it's too fun to pass up. I've had two or three 4300K low to moderate power HIDs in the past and was definitely not thrilled by the pink overtones. I opted for the 6000K this time. 4300K "sounds" perfect, it just doesn't seem to come thru in HID for me. But the beauty of the color of light is in the eye of the beholder. The version 5 looks to be much larger than the 3 and 4.

    I'm assuming it steaps down to 42w (Low Mode) after a few minutes

    Hi Lips!!! Great to hear from you. Iím not here much either.

    I still have my FF3 & 4 that I got from you, and thank God I got spare battery cartridges.

    I would not buy this new FF5 without getting a spare battery holder, given the history of prior models failing.

    I was able to take apart one of my old holders and fix it.

    To the original poster, can you ask if they can sell spare holders? Otherwise as BVH said this is a nice price.

    Too bad they donít have a lot more photos to see parts, build details, etc.

    Looks like you can buy a spare carrier, diffuser lens, and bulb. you can also buy a rechargeable battery pack it looks like.
