This review is for the community sourced BLF (Astrolux S1) A6 LED flashlight- which is possibly the brightest and cheapest ($29.99) stock EDC ever, or of at least 2015. It’s also my pick for the best budget flashlight of the year. This light was developed by members of Budget Light Forum, and is a single Cree XPL LED light that pumps out over 1200 actual lumens. Check out these threads for more details. Also the light has been renamed the Astrolux S1, but all reports indicate the internal parts of the light are exactly the same.
