Sofirn SP32A in a new wrapper or version number 2

I had somehow on the review of the lamp Sofirn SP32Athe first version, but he was completely lost last winter somewhere in the snowdrifts, during my nightly snowboard rides. Since then, the thought of a flashlight form factor that is very convenient for me on one 18650 battery has not left me. And now, not without a name, Sofirn released a modified version of my favorite flashlight - Sofirn SP32A v2. About what you liked and what is not (without measuring the characteristics), will be further under the cut. Mercy please

And so, what has been changed. Here is the description from the seller’s website:

In other words:
1) Replace the LED with a more modern one.
2) Built-in indication of the residual battery charge in the button.
3) Built-in thermal protection against overheating of the “head” of the lamp.
4) Increased the lamp's protection against dust and water to IPX 8
The flashlight comes in the standard packaging for this company, in which there is: a lanyard for carrying a flashlight on the arm, two rubber pads, the flashlight itself and instructions, ATTENTION - In Russian !!!

I never managed to achieve thermal protection, the flashlight hardly warms up at maximum brightness, and in the turbo mode the timer works and it switches to maximum.

In conclusion, I want to say that the flashlight turned outinteresting compared to the previous version and functional. It’s a pity that the stuck up “head” of the lantern, although who knows, maybe this will also increase the reliability of the lantern.
All good and positive
